The Design Consultation | Couture Wedding Dresses | Phillipa Lepley


A bespoke Phillipa Lepley gown is a triumph of British design and craftsmanship. Attention to detail and perfectionism are paramount: using classic tailoring techniques, sophisticated in-house hand-embroidery and bold thread-work, every Phillipa Lepley wedding dress and evening gown is scrupulously crafted by hand.

Phillipa Lepley source the most exquisite fabrics and work with the world’s best artisan mills, all with the same quality ethos and commitment to producing excellence. Back at the London atelier, from numerous fittings and the creation of two complete toiles, each and every stitch is calculated and refined on a client’s specific measurements to ensure the dress sculpts the body and optimises definition. The aim: to create a spectacular gown of timeless beauty where fit, balance and proportion are fundamental to each design, crafted so precisely and thoughtfully for each individual’s shape.  The Phillipa Lepley team are carefully trained and directed by Phillipa herself to craft and deliver nothing short of perfection.


An initial consultation is conducted with your Couture Consultant via telephone or video call. Clients are invited to share ideas virtually, from wherever in the world they are, and will receive expert advice on how to begin creating their dream dress.

During the initial consultation, having developed an in-depth understanding of a client’s individual needs and their silhouette, the dedicated specialist will be able to offer advice on styles and cuts to suit. They will share ideas and guidance on where to seek further inspiration across the Phillipa Lepley collection, presenting a number of custom fabrics and embroideries. Following this, a more in-depth, appointment can be arranged, where couture sketches can be drawn, sample dress designs can be tried on and the vision will begin to come to life.

"My aim is to celebrate the client. Not only to frame their figure in the best way possible, but also to portray the essence of their character"
