Intricate floral appliqué, sophisticated beading and lace work of the very highest quality are created by hand in the Chelsea atelier, in designs and patterns entirely unique to Phillipa Lepley, and each client.
Shimmering tulle twinkles with pearls, and beading cascades down like rain. Delicate, feminine flower petals are sewn by hand onto tulle, a highly skilled task. The result is a work of art that from afar may look like lace but is a unique embroidered tulle design bespoke to Phillipa Lepley. Classic, clean draped designs and slim, body-sculpting skirts allow details, such as buttons, beading and pearls, to shine. Add subtle sparkle in the form of a glamorous, embellished element, such as an elegant hand-worked veil or jewel-encrusted lace bodice.
Virtual consultations are available by appointment, conducted via phone or video call. Clients are invited to share ideas and they will receive expert advice on how to begin creating their dream dress.
During a virtual consultation, having developed an in-depth understanding of a client’s individual needs and their silhouette, the dedicated specialist will be able to offer advise on styles and cuts to suit. She will share advice and guidance on where to seek further inspiration across the Phillipa Lepley collection, presenting a number of custom fabrics and embroideries. After the initial virtual consultation a more in-depth video consultation can be arranged, after which couture sketches can be drawn, and the vision will begin to come to life.
Phillipa Lepley uses only the most luxurious, sumptuous European materials, from smooth Italian Duchesse satin and classic silk tulle to elaborate French lace and the lightest satin organza.
In dreaming up her exquisite gowns, Phillipa Lepley pays great attention to the choice and combination of fabrics – the quality and nature of each one determines the overall shape of every dress, and its impact. For some, simplicity is the ultimate in luxury couture and our fabrics suit them just as well as those seeking an elaborately embellished, voluminous princess dress.
