The Phillipa Lepley ‘Acanthus Leaves’ lace wedding dress perfectly exemplifies the designer’s talent in creating couture dresses that are timeless and traditional, with a modern sophistication. It celebrates the talents of the atelier team, and has been precisely engineered and intricately hand-created from start to finish in London.
A stunning leaf motif has been embroidered on to tulle, then panels sew together by hand, to create one piece of moulded fabric with no visible seams. The dress is equally as beautiful from every angle, and a work of art in its own right.
Constructed with a signature Phillipa Lepley hidden corset, it has a full skirt that skims over the hips and open ‘v’ shaped front and back necklines. The leaf motifs are left raw at the neck and hem of the dress, creating a feeling of cascading movement, adding drama and beauty.
This dress can be made to order with pearl or crystal beading should a bride specifically prefer a beaded wedding dress.
Phillipa Lepley is widely recognised as being the leading British couture wedding dress designer. Her wedding dress shop in London, Chelsea, has over 50 dresses, all of which have been made in England from start to finish at her atelier.
