The world of fashion woke up to some very exciting news this morning, as the first pictures of the Richard Nicoll for Topshop bridal collection were revealed! We're counting down the days until this collaboration (sweetly called 'Tie the Knot') arrives online and in store in late June. It's the sixth time Richard has worked with us, but the first time either of us have produced a bridal collection so it's an extremely exciting time!

As you would expect from one of the most elegant designers working right now, the dresses that Richard has created for Topshop are super contemporary and the antithesis of traditional frou-frou gowns. Beautiful lace shift dresses in blush pink and pure white compliment a floor length gown with a silk bodice, gentle peplum and sheer georgette underskirt. Every dress has a little bit of London cool – as Richard himself says, "these pieces are perfect as party dresses too if you're not the marrying kind."

To be honest, even the single girls in the office have been eyeing up the samples – you don't need to have a fiance to want to wear one of the Richard Nicoll Tie the Knot gowns! Keep your eyes peeled for their arrival very soon…ST120501_SHOT_03_043_F2_CMYK
