Bridal designer Henry Roth is currently on a Frock Around Australia tour to launch the new collections for both the Henry Roth and Michelle Roth labels and for a series of top to toe one on one consultations with Australian brides to find their dream wedding dress.
Henry has appeared on Project Runway, Beauty and the Geek and his gowns have also featured internationally on programs including Entertainment Tonight and Oprah. Complete Wedding Sydney caught up with him for some bridal fashion expert advice.
What are the latest collections like?
My sisterâ€™s collection Michelle Roth Couture is striking with a lot of draping and contouring with vintage lace through to translucent materials.
The Henry Roth â€śManhattanâ€ť collection is about the regal bride returning with sumptuous satin and sparkle. Thereâ€™s the new high low hemline which is knee length at the front and to the floor at the back. Itâ€™s very rock and roll.
Whatâ€™s inspiring you at the moment?
When you meet brides from all over the world Adelaide to Alaska, Sydney to Shanghai, they are inspiration enough. Weddings are so full on and I hear some amazing stories.
What are the big bridal trends on the horizon?
Gowns that make a significant entrance, whether it is a floating chiffon gown on the beach or sparkling and beaded in the ballroom.
What tips do you have for our brides?
Spend time on your hair and makeup. It does take two hours, even when it looks so sun kissed and natural! And for simple tousled up do it still takes hours. Choose a standout accessory then step back and let it breathe.
