This wedding dress could have come straight out of a dream – even looking at the photographs gives you a breathless sensation so just imagine how the bride and her guests felt! Designed and created by Simon Henry Couture using wedding dress material from Bridal Fabrics, the gown is truly stunning and unique. How can YOU get the look for yourself? Read on…
Simon is something of an expert when it comes to textiles and his talent can clearly be seen shining from every last thread of the gorgeous, breathtaking dress pictured here. Having published three internationally-successful books on the complex and artistic subject of dressmaking, he is a respected authority on the subject and is always in high demand for his couture wedding gowns as well as prom dresses and red carpet outfits.
An international couture client list featuring many celebrity names proves the innate talent Simon has for creating clothing of extremely high quality. As well as working independently, he also designs and samples surface embellishment and embroidery for other couture houses, with a speciality in tambour beading, digital machining and goldwork. Lots of knitting and crocheting feature on his extensive CV and his self-designed patterns have appeared in publications all over the world.
As if all of this were not impressive enough, Simon also finds time to be a successful quilt-maker and tutor (for which he has won awards), beauty therapist, masseur, make-up artist and hair stylist - we wish he would share his time-management secrets with us!
The gown pictured here was created by Simon using two of our wedding fabrics:
The soft ivory colouration of this no-snag fabric is beyond beautiful - rich yet refined, elegant yet flamboyant. Simon, who has experience working with almost any fabric you can name, says that our Duchess Satin ‘sews like a dream’ - high praise indeed!
Matching scalloped and fringed edges frame a delightful floral motif that extends deeply into the lace body. Throughout, more floral motifs vie for your attention as the pretty, feminine lace continues - there is something indescribably beautiful about the pattern the motifs create and this lace has bags of couture style.
