We were fortunate enough to be front and center for the unveiling of the Jacques Vert Group, Elegant British Brand’s new Spring 2015 Collection. Britain’s premier occasion wear brand, Jacque Vert Group’s new spring line focuses on head-to-toe looks for the Mother of the Bride/Groom, bridesmaids, wedding guests or for the bride herself. Whether an evening or day wedding, cityscape or country wedding – there is something for every woman to look and feel her best. Hosted by Hudson’s Bay and Jacque Vert Group the event was definitely an affair to remember!
Held at the beautiful and historic Windsor Arms Hotel, downtown Toronto, it served as the perfect backdrop for this event. In true British fashion, the main hall was converted into a fabulous tea party, surrounded by a display of gorgeous fashions. Ornate couches were set up at each table which were all laid out with a true “high tea” spread of wonderful pastries, fresh fruit and of course, hot tea served in antique china teacups! As fabulous as the surroundings were, the true highlight of the event was of course, the amazing fashions!
The Debut of Elegant British Brand’s Spring 2015 Line (#JVGSS15) included stunning pieces from the British Fashion house’s fine labels including Jacques Vert, Planet, Windsmoor, Precis as well as Colebrook by Windsmoor, the new plus size contemporary line featuring clothes tailored for the beautifully curvaceous figure.
The collection featured elegant separates coordinated perfectly with beautifully tailored jackets, flattering dresses, elegant hats and (my personal favorite accessory) stunning fascinators. There were several great looks that would be perfect for the mother of the bride or groom and wedding guests alike. The fine fabrics such as lavish laces, easy-care crepes, chiffons and satins coupled with quality tailoring and hand-sewn embellishments really set this line apart from other formal wear collections.
Inspired by the classic styling of Chanel, I found many of the pieces to be reminiscent of the timeless beauty and glamour of old Hollywood stars like Audrey Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor, and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to feel like Audrey Hepburn even just for a one day? The collection also includes an extensive selection of coordinating accessories, from hats and headbands as well as matching footwear in a range of styles from sling-backs to peep toes, making Jacques Vert the one-stop destination for your top-to-toe special occasion outfit needs.
“Our attention to detail such as hand-sewn beading, our use of premium fabrics such as stunning couture lace combined with an array of styles and cuts, allow our guests to find the perfect outfit for special events. This season we have also launched a new petite fit across the range so all our guests can find expertly tailored outfits,” said Amanda Lester, Brand Director for Jacques Vert.
All in all, I would have to say that the Spring 2015 show for Jacques Vert Group was a wonderful blend of fun and sophistication. It’s the perfect attire for any woman who wants to make a unique statement or add a touch of class and elegance to her special occasion.
