Mariana Hardwick: bridal with balance

To some people, the word “bridal” has cringe-worthy associations of rock-solid hairsprayed up-’dos and meringue shaped dresses. That’s where a look book like Mariana Hardwick’s – for her Bridal Luxe Collection – comes in. The dresses have plenty of traditional wedding dress clout, from their palette of pure white and icy grey to their cuts – some flowing, some bodiced. But the look book’s presentation swathes them in simplicity. The shimmer of silver eyeshadow and hair left to hang unfussed with, sometimes even a little tousled and messy, gives everything a laid-back air. Hardwick’s bride may be wearing an intricately beaded couture gown, but she’s not the kind to ever appear high strung.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
