Finding inspiration in the designs of the past and cinematic landscapes, New Yorker Alexandra Grecco released her first ready to wear collection in the spring of 2010. In her work, she has found herself drawn to classic, feminine designs that, while rooted in nostalgia, achieve a sense of timelessness. In July 2014, Alexandra Grecco's bridal line was launched, which paired her aesthetic with high-quality fabrics and intricate hand-embroidery, creating a truly ethereal, magical collection. Her latest collection is now available exclusively in Ireland at Ivory & Pearl
ATELIER EMELIA at ALICE MAY BRIDAL
Channel Parisian chic at it's finest with a gorgeous Atelier Emelia gown. Timeless and elegant, these beautiful bridal beauties are designed and made by three sisters. For over 40 years, their unique vision of wedding dresses have made the success of Evelyne, Chantal and Monique, along with inspiration drawn from Haute Couture design and authentic know-how. They like to say that 'a bride should wear her wedding dress just as she would wear her favorite pair of jeans, freely and simply.' The new collection is now available exclusively in Ireland at Alice May Bridal.
DAUGHTERS OF SIMONE at ARCHIVE 12
'Every place on earth houses a group of women unlike the rest. They are the vagabonds, the hippies, the outlaws. They are the wanderers and the starry-eyed. Each of our bohemian style wedding dresses are designed with these in mind.' Daughters of Simone are the newest addition to the Irish bridal market. Taking its name from philosopher Simone de Beauvoir and founded in the U.S. by two sisters inspired by their mother's 1970's wedding dress, Daughters of Simone dresses aim to bring unhindered unorthodoxy with antique lace, billowing sleeves and soft crochet patterns for the carefree, natural bride. The collection is now available exclusively in Ireland at Archive 12
The Immaculada creations are designed for daring and passionate brides who are both dreamers and romantic, who love feminine and sensual designs with a touch of class. Inmaculada Garcia's collection of stunning bridal gowns are the epitome of elegance and class, while nodding to the contemporary. These Spanish gowns are bursting with romantic zeal. The latest collection is now available exclusively in Ireland at Sharon Hoey's bridal boutique
