Phillipa Lepley is always one of the first names I think of when recommending a wedding gown designer to brides who want that classic, elegant and sophsticated look. Phillipa’s style very much focuses on the classic wedding dress, but reimagined with modern twists. The new 2018 collection exemplifies her unparalleled talent in creating beautiful, bespoke dresses. Rather than following fashion trends Phillipa strives to create sophisticated, quality dresses which flatter the individual, to stand the test of time.
New striking features for 2018 include high-neck lines, and a collection of quirky yet serene cover-ups such as whimsical balloon sleeves, dramatic capes and full-length, silk, finely-embellished veils.
Sprinklings of polka-dots, floating leaves and petals from Phillipa’s favourite seasonal flowers, including maidenshair fern, primroses, gypsophila and lily of valley, have been embroidered on to tulle by hand creating patterns that are completely bespoke. In the same way, Phillipa can create a design especially for a bride, incorporating her favourite flower laid out to depict a unique picture.
True to form, Phillipa Lepley is all about the shape and the fit; flattering tailoring and the creation of elegant lines. The new dresses are expertly cut with a contemporary edge, perfectly proportioned. As always, the seems are invisible, the corsetry is remarkable and the fabrics are luxurious and rich. Everything you desire from your dream gown!
Each dress is a unique work of art. I mean, let’s all take a moment to appreciate this beautiful number below! If only I was getting married myself right now! I love it!
