Lyn Ashworth's 2018 'Daydreamer' Dress Collection
Taking inspiration from texture and light and the ways in which they impact one another, Lyn Ashworth's latest collection for 2018 literally feels enveloped in dream-like qualities. Reinterpreting the brand's signature sophisticated aesthetic, prepare to be dazzled by gorgeous textures and decadent ruffles, finished off with a healthy dose of twinkles and tulle. Featuring everything from hand appliqued three-dimensional embellishments to delicate beaded lace, we see the collection put a wonderfully modern take on classic vintage style. Whilst playing with various intricate elements, the collection also experiments with colour, offering the opportunity to have the dresses not only in ivory and champagne but a beautiful soft blush pink too.
When speaking of the collection, Sarah Barrett, the creative director at Lyn Ashworth explains 'we are surrounded by texture and light. Different light can portray a different texture and a different texture can portray a different light. As the sun rises it creates the daydream effect and as that small window of the golden hour is upon you, your imagination is transported to a moonlight place.'
Some of our favourite elements from the collection (to name but a few!) include the gorgeous floral applique bodice as seen on the 'Heavenly' gown, the fabulous tulle and beaded shoulder details as seen on the 'Champagne Blush' gown and the timelessly elegant bodice and subtle floral detailing on the 'Harmony' gown.

Champagne Blush Gown
With ruffles in abundance, this gown is literally a show-stopper and perfect for anyone obsessed with girly touches. Featuring an intricate sequinned bodice and over the shoulder tulle strap, the look is finished off beautifully with a hand beaded floral brooch.
Channeling a vintage look, the floral jacket finishes off this chic look wonderfully and is the perfect accompaniment for the ceremony part of the wedding.
One of our favourite looks of the collection, the Harmony gown has a real Audrey Hepburn feel to it. We love the daintiness of the neckline and the subtle trail of petals that cascade down the lengh of the dress.
Featuring an off the shoulder bodice, one of the top bridal trends this year, the 'Heart's Desire' gown is a wonderfully modern take on a vintage look.
Delicate feather light flowers are the show stealer on this gown, creating a gorgeous whimsical feel whilst the sweetheart neckline makes for a truly flattering look.
If you fancy adding a Parisian feel to your wedding day look, we have one word for you - monochrome. We are in love with the subtle black touches throughout this collection and the 'Love's Dream' gown is the perfect example of this.
Timeless and insanely flattering, the 'Love's Promise' gown is a lovely elegant look and we think it looks fab with a red lip, as seen here!
With a beautifully embroidered bodice and full skirt, the 'Midsummer' gown will ensure you feel like an absolute princess on your wedding day.
If you're after a look that can feel both modern and classic, then the 'Moonlight' gown is the ideal choice. With a jacket to transform the look, this is a dress for those who wish to dazzle.
With all the ethereal feels, the 'Nature's Promise' gown features the most gorgeous floral applique lace detailing and channels the daydreamer aesthetic beautifully.
Spring Rose Gown
Featuring dainty embroidery and beading teamed with light as air fabrics, this dress offers comfort as well as style.
Simplicity at it's finest, this dress is a super flattering cut whilst also feeling like something a little bit different. Note the fab monochrome touches making another appearance!
Summer Breeze Gown
Perfect for weddings all year round, the long sleeved 'Summer Breeze' gown features beautiful three-dimensional flowers along the sleeves and bodice that then cascading the length of the dress.
Combining detailed and unique lace with layers upon layers of feather light fabric, prepare to literally float around your special day in this dress.
