The original dye-to-match doyenne, Ghost offers a capsule collection of timeless and romantic dresses, bias-cut in vintage-inspired satin. Flattering, floor-skimming styles are elevated by simple details spanning scooped backs and cowl necks. Dresses come in dusty pink and chalky hues, as well as rich jewel tones.

Maids to Measure
While working at Vera Wang, India Sellers saw a gap in the market for contemporary mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses in London, which hit the sweet spot between high street and designer. She founded Maids to Measure with her sister Sinclair in 2012, specialising in feminine, fuss-free silhouettes cut from premium silk chiffon. Colours have appealing names, like frosted fig and cream soda, while stylish details include cut-out backs and dropped shoulders.
