Andrea Hawkes 2020 Collection ‘Identity’
Andrea Hawkes 2020 Collection ‘Identity’ includes 22 new dress designs, with styling additions including jackets, tops, overskirts, belts and veils.
‘Identity’ has been created to reflect the importance of each individual bride’s dress, designing pieces that are unique in their place throughout the collection. Fabrics have been developed and sourced from far and wide to ensure the quality of Andrea’s dresses are retained. The team develop all their plain silks with a specialist natural silk mill, and source French lace from the most renowned producers, hand crafting on looms dating back 250 years.
It’s really important to me as a wedding dress designer to have a strong understanding of the best fabrics, quality of fit, and how each garment works for the individual. I work with an experienced and talented team, who value these principles and believe in taking a personal approach with each and every bride.
Andrea designs classic couture shapes into modern contemporary designs, using the finest natural fabrics with attention to finishes and details creating a simplistic and strong aesthetic. Offering 3 levels of service, from standard size pieces, made to measure service and fully bespoke design to ensure every brides need can be catered for. Every dress is made with precision and care in our London studio.
The in-house production team has the experience and understanding to create couture dresses to the highest standards in beautiful natural silk fabrics. Including bias and fully corseted wedding dresses, using traditional techniques and finishes.

Modern & Simple Wedding Dresses for Stylish Brides
I have to say the Andrea Hawkes 2020 collection is a breath of fresh air. Brides looking for something utterly special, perfectly tailored and completely simplistic will find joy in these designs. Comfortable, flowing fabrics, teamed with beautiful detailing and sublime cuts are sure to give brides confidence to walk down the aisle. The contemporary dresses (and jumpsuit) allow for beautiful, striking and statement accessories to really make sure brides own their wedding day look. It also means brides can transform from ceremony to reception by a quick alteration in accessories. Or for a really minimal striking style, brides can leave their Andrea Hawkes outfit to really do the talking.
My very favourite pieces from the Identity collection have to be Carter’s cut out lace panelling and sleeves, Harriet’s high neckline, Nightingale’s soft polka dot lace, Perry’s vintage-esque silk lines and Wallace’s beautiful button front. Oh my.
How special are the bridal jackets, tops, overskirts, belts and veils also crafted by Andrea Hawkes? I mean those capes really are something else and we are definitely set to see many more bride’s rocking them on their wedding days. It’s the perfect alternative to a traditional veil for adding drama.
