THE INSPIRATION

Hand-worked flowers scatter over dresses like a garden in a dream… Fall in love with the charms and colours of Mother Nature, which inspire Phillipa Lepley to dream up fairytale dresses.

The intricate, delicate details found in the natural world, which provide a source of delight and inspiration for Phillipa, take centre stage, in the form of hand-embroidery and beading in exquisite floral designs. Timeless styles, with voluminous tulle skirts, gathered waists, high necklines and signature internal corsetry, are the epitome of elegance. The shapes are inspired by couture houses of the 1940s and 1950s, with contemporary designs embellished by bespoke detailing that is drawn and stitched by hand in London.

“I want every bride to feel that her dress is perfect, and part of her.”

PHILLIPA LEPLEY

THE STORY OF THE SEASON

Clean lines, sculpted silhouettes, balance and proportion are of utmost importance, resulting in a beautiful, completely bespoke dress that is a true labour of love – without mathematics, there is no art.

Symmetry has been used in the collection’s most feminine dresses and matching veils to beautifully subtle effect. Floral motifs, drawn and embroidered onto tulle by hand, cascade down satin bodices and full, layered skirts. Accents of seed pearls and tiny crystals add twinkling details to each exquisite look. Any element can be tailored; perfected by Phillipa is tulle embroidered so delicately it gives the appearance of lace, with each petal uniquely placed according to the client’s shape and preference.

BESPOKE EMBROIDERY

Exquisite embroidery of unparalleled quality requires an exceptionally talented team. In Phillipa Lepley’s London atelier, nimble fingers sketch, stitch and sew; creating, as if by magic, true labours of love.

Each bespoke embroidery design can incorporate personal touches that continue to delight clients, from the use of a favourite flower within a design to the hidden embroidery of significant initials or dates. Every person is different, and will suit a specific style, colour and boldness of embroidery – swatches and sampling ensure this perfect balance is achieved. If a client is particularly interested in specialist techniques and components, the Phillipa Lepley team can develop truly one-of-a-kind couture embroidery designs.

EMBELLISHMENT

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.

WORLD-RENOWNED CORSETRY
