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
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.
The new Phillipa Lepley collection reflects the contrast between fabric and silhouette: flawless hand-embroideries of delicate meadow flowers and fine sparkling embellishment are juxtaposed with bold shapes, regal necklines and fairy-tale ballgowns.
Striking, clean and classic – this season introduces a variety of styles from cleverly cut chiffon dresses, grand off-the-shoulder shapes with bounteous skirts to magnificent sculptured Duchess satin. Phillipa Lepley’s in-house craftsmanship takes precedence, featuring glamorous, but girly hand-stitched bodices bejewelled with shimmering aged Swarovski beads and oversized pearls. Detail is also drawn from botanical influences reflected on beautiful hand-embroidered floral tulle – sourced exclusively from Switzerland and crafted into the most magical statement dresses. The result; a dreamy reinterpretation of the brand’s signature presentation of innovative and luxurious couture wedding gowns.
