When we look to buy any form of clothing we always focus on the front and the poor back design often gets over looked. As a designer I can tell you that it’s sometimes easy to do, you are so preoccupied with the front that the back simply just gets neglected. Another reason for this is also due to price, designers are often encouraged by buyers to leave the back empty as we never look at this when browsing the shops so why would we make the garment more expensive if it’s not going to be seen?
Well this year things are set to change as the fronts get simplified and time and money is ready to be spent on the back design. We have seen many top designer bridal gowns in past years, but now the maids have their turn to shine too! Here are some of our favourite and most imaginative designs on the market right now!
We have seen so many beautiful cuts to the back of dresses, but one big look for the season is the heart shape, we are also set to see lots of cross over straps and pretty jewel keyhole shapes.
Because there are just so many gorgeous back designs this year, bridesmaids simply cannot make up their minds on just one style and so have decided just to choose what they want making up a variety of styles in one wedding, which looks great on a photo-shoot.
Bows and All
At the neckline, on the back of the waist and anywhere in between, designers have gone bow crazy and we just love the look.
We’ve seen many front cowl designs over the past few years, but now the back is also getting a taste of the same medicine.
