All that Glitters Mainline Collection 2018 Bridal Salon Show by Charlie Brear

'All That Glitters'

Bold, glamorous, fearless and seductive are all words that describe the 2018 Charlie Brear Mainline Collection. With a subtle nod to 70s Cher and referencing the film Pretty Woman, taking 90s attitude and grit mixed with sophistication, the mood is fun and relevant to this season’s easy-going CB bride.


The use of luxe textured fabrics and perfectly cut silhouettes create a light-hearted mood that’s both pretty and aspirational. Cut away necklines, low backs, off-the-shoulder sleeves, front-split skirts and sheer lace panels give the collection its directional, fashion-led feel, whilst uneven pleating, layering, voluminous sleeves and pockets add detail and individuality.

The collections focus this season is on stand-alone dresses but stays true to its roots with new hero accessories and separates in the label’s signature range of Additions.  CB brides can continue to style their dress for a unique look.  Standout pieces of the collection include Avalon, an effortless strapless luxe crepe gown with soft flared bodice overlay and long waist tie; Elua, a tailored dress with graphic dandelion lace sheer sleeves and back panel; and the Keala, a wide-sleeved boxy cropped lace top with optional eyelet lace trim neckline.
