COUTURE WEDDING DRESS: VIENNA WOODLAND LEAVES
An enchanting, whimsical choice for a bride who is looking for a fresh, yet intricately detailed feel to her dress.
‘Vienna Woodland Leaves’ perfectly showcases the ornate embellishment and masterful thread-work expertly hand-crafted in the Phillipa Lepley artisan London atelier.
A tulle overlay delicately embroidered with hundreds of woodland leaves is gracefully moulded over a fitted corseted bodice defining the waist, before organically flowing into a fluid skirt with a 70 inch train.
Stunning laser-cut organza leaf motifs are carefully positioned one by one, creating a 3D effect, gently weaving from the narrow straps across the soft sweeping neckline and throughout this gown.
The hand-worked ivory embroidery of the strawberry leaves, holly leaves and life-like petals are illuminated by the crisp white duchess satin gown beneath.
Like every embroidered Phillipa Lepley piece, the design is created in house with hours spent to beautifully depict the intricate details found in the natural world. Phillipa says, “When we design embroideries, I love for them to be very organic and natural, with flow and movement throughout.”
Worn here with a matching embroidered top to perfectly frame the feminine neckline, featuring individual leaf motifs naturally growing around the shoulders. An exquisite ‘Woodland Leaves’ veil, just as intricate as the dress, has also been created should the bride wish to complete her look with full floral romance.
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.
