A Phillipa Lepley gown is the epitome of elegant bespoke design. Combining refined grace, timeless beauty and perfect artistry, a Phillipa Lepley couture wedding dress seamlessly blends precision technical construction with impeccable styling.
Enhancing the feminine form is at the heart of each couture gown. Famed for crafting immaculate corsetry that sculpts the silhouette to perfectly define in all the right places, creating a Phillipa Lepley gown is a work of art that has been distinguished over three decades. The formula is unrivalled, meticulous and world renowned. Each dress is skilfully hand-crafted in London at the Chelsea atelier using the finest fabrics, such as lavish Italian Duchess satin, intricate French lace and custom-made Swiss embroideries. Phillipa Lepley is particularly celebrated for producing the most dazzling in-house-designed bespoke hand-embellishments, which can be incorporated into any couture dress or veil.
15TH CENTURY FATHER OF ACCOUNTING
An initial consultation is conducted with your Couture Consultant via telephone or video call prior to your one-to-one personalised consultation at our By Appointment Only London store. Clients are invited to share ideas virtually, from wherever in the world they are, and will receive expert advice on how to begin creating their dream dress.
During the initial consultation, having developed an in-depth understanding of a client’s individual needs and their silhouette, the dedicated specialist will be able to offer advice on styles and cuts to suit. They will share ideas and guidance on where to seek further inspiration across the Phillipa Lepley collection, presenting a number of custom fabrics and embroideries. Following this, a more in-depth, private instore appointment can be arranged, where couture sketches can be drawn, sample dress designs can be tried on and the vision will begin to come to life.
This season presents a fresh take on the classic Phillipa Lepley aesthetic. Exquisite fabrics and ornate embellishment take centre stage to create a collection featuring glittering Swarovski bodices, sumptuous flowing silhouettes, alongside hand-worked floral stitching and decorative ornamentation.
Phillipa’s exceptional talent for sourcing the most sought-after one-of-a-kind fabrics has inspired the design house’s brand-new collection. Highlights include beautifully wearable pieces such as a 1950’s style coat dress created using opulent Duchess Satin, sculptural lines with bespoke embroidered overlays and slinky gowns crafted using floor-sweeping satin. Showstopping elements are reflected on romantic voluminous pieces embroidered with delicate floral motifs, in the prettiest pastel colour palette, echoing wild blooms loved by Phillipa such as peonies, magnolia and jasmine. Hand-crafted veils are adorned with maiden hair fern, fountain grass and cosmos, styled to wear over huge crepe dresses with high neck detailing. As ever, with each Phillipa Lepley collection, balance and proportion remain at the core of each creation.
