We caught up with top British bridal designer Mark Lesley to find out about his latest collections…

Why Should Brides choose Mark Lesley?
When choosing a Mark Lesley design you are assured of only the highest level of quality.

What advice would you give to brides starting their dress search?
Always book an appointment at a trustworthy bridal boutique and be open-minded. Make sure your posture is upright when trying on different styles as this will help determine the best shape of dress for you. Always seek you retailer’s advice and listen to their suggestions because they will have a wealth of experience and knowledge in helping brides just like you. If initially the dress isn’t quite perfect, ask about modifications as the smallest dislike may be able to be changed to create the perfect design for you.
What is your bestselling gown and why?
Our design 7168 is just sensational and brides are loving it! With the combination of a sexy illusion back, beautifully sculptured fishtail skirt, stunning lace patterning and sophisticated sparkle, it’s a show stopper that guarantees wow factor when you’re walking down the aisle.
What can we expect from Mark Lesley next?
The new collection has beautiful laces and exquisite beading, stretch crepe will be featured and a focus has been placed on stunning illusion trains extending up to three metres in length to create breathtaking silhouettes.
These new designs will be in stores throughout the UK
from this September.
