Internationally renowned designer Caroline Castigliano launched her exquisite 2011/12 bridal and evening wear collection to great acclaim at the prestigious Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London.



200 guests filled the grand ballroom to celebrate the unveiling in a spectacular catwalk extravaganza. Guests were treated to champagne and canaps as they waited in eager anticipation to see the exciting new collection.



Upon arrival guests were inspired by stunning diamond jewellery from De Beers, beautiful bridal stationary by Smythson, chic designer shoes by Aruna Seth and ornate floral displays by Moyses Stevens. Top beauty specialists from Christian Dior and Paul Edmonds were on hand to give expert beauty advice.



The show opened with Caroline Castiglianos stunning designer evening gowns. There was an array of navy with black, gorgeous nudes and statements dresses in greens and purple. Models then gracefully glided down the catwalk in romantic bridal gowns of soft tulle and lace, followed by Castiglianos striking signature pieces with structured fishtail and statement organza gowns.



Caroline Castigliano says: Every bride deserves to look and feel her most beautiful on her wedding day and the 2011/12 collection is designed to do just that. Soft organza and satin georgette gives this collection an expression of understated feminine glamour.



For the evening wear collection, I wanted to show a cross section of evening and party dresses which encapsulates the diversity of the Caroline Castigliano brand. In this years collection, we have short dresses that are perfect for a party as well as slightly more formal occasions, such as Ascot, Henley or a family or friends wedding. The collection also includes structured, bias and soft floaty gowns. I love designing evening wear, it is really expanding my creativity, and the red carpet glamour look is just very exciting right now.



Caroline adds: My ethos is to design for women that love style and appreciate beautiful fabrics and quality workmanship. My gowns are simplistic, stylish and luxurious. In 2011/12 my entire inspiration was to continue to develop a relaxed glamour collection, a look that is sensual and glamorous with a casual feel about it.



The 2011/12 collection is available exclusively at Caroline Castigliano boutiques.
