‘Plie Pleats’ is a traditional, yet modern heavy-weight Silk Zibeline wedding dress, with a voluminous skirt – fitted at the high hip and so accentuating a feminine silhouette.
Inverted pleats hidden in the side seams and centre back add further volume and subtle detail.
A scoop neckline at the front echoes and emphasises the collar bones, and on-the-edge-of-shoulder straps sit over a waisted bodice with a hidden defining corset.
With a dramatic, contrasting low V back neckline, the dress descends in to a 7ft long, full train to the rear. The tulle rouleau belt is hand tied at the waist.
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.
