Couture Wedding Dress: Venice Low Shoulder Bow
“The Venice Low Shoulder Bow’s simplicity gives the brides an effortless elegance on their big day”
Venice Low Shoulder Bow is one of the most complex dresses to create and beautifully showcases just how skilled Phillipa and her atelier are. The pristinely-simple duchess satin bias cut-style wedding dress has been designed with sumptuous drapes of fabric at the neckline, drawing the eye to the face and collar bones.
Elegant lines and the most luxurious Italian duchesse satin create a striking silhouette on a bride, which is refined and understated. The corseted bodice is softened with a draped and moulded duchess satin overlay blending cleverly into tied bow straps at the shoulders. The straps are positioned to create an off-the-shoulder neckline softly flowing into both the front and back, creating a romantic and sensual look.
The form skimming skirt is cut to compliment the scooped neckline and gently cascades to a fuller volume at the base of the dress. The gentle A line skirt is finished with an elegant train to give the bride the ultimate feminine feeling on her wedding day. The craftsmanship on this couture wedding dress is second-to-none; the bodice appears to be totally seamless with all the different elements blending immaculately into one another in a celebration of fabrics, craftsmanship and femininity.
Phillipa says, “What I love about the Venice Low Shoulder Bow is the simplicity which gives the brides an effortless elegance while the hidden corset ensures the female form is shown to its fullest.”
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.
