Fall in love with ivory feathers dancing amongst layer upon layer of silk tulle.
Filmed on location at the stunning luxury wedding venue Aynhoe Park in Northamptonshire, the model wears ‘Floating Feather’ – a couture wedding dress made from start to finish at the Phillipa Lepley atelier in Chelsea, London.
Fall in love with the billowing movement and soft voluminous shape of this statement feather skirt. Layer upon layer of silk tulle has been individually tiered and combined with hand sewn ostrich feathers to create a feeling of air and lift.
A signature Phillipa Lepley waist defining corset forms the base structure of the dress. The strapless bodice has been cut with a sweetheart neckline and then finely draped with silk chiffon; the sweeping crossover detailing held with thousands of minute, invisible hand stitches – a fascinating work of art in its own right.
The fabric will be fitted perfectly around the bride’s figure, the corset moulded to her shape, to beautifully accentuate every curve. Delicate buttons at the back finish this dramatic look.
“This is one of my favourite dresses that I have ever created. It took weeks and weeks to bring together. From the initial design through to the making of it – the whole process was incredibly exciting. It really is like nothing else when you see it on it – I hope this video captures an element of that.”
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.
