Today I am thrilled to spotlight on the beautiful 2017 Luxury Collection from Cape Town based Bridal Gown designer Elbeth Gillis.
Founded in 1997 and hailing from South Africa’s creativity capital, Elbeth Gillis has built a reputation amongst brides for dresses that are synonymous with timeless elegance, sophisticated femininity and unparalleled quality.
Relentless in her pursuit for distinction and refinement, Elbeth employs only French laces, and the best silks and chiffons.
Brides looking for something different will fall in love with both the enduring, Audrey Hepburn-like design aesthetic, and the customer service for which the brand is known.
As the head of her eponymous brand, Elbeth embodies the same virtues that her brides find in their dresses – style, charm, and uncompromising class.
With a three-year fashion diploma from The Cape Peninsula University of Technology behind her, as well as decades of experience in the industry, Elbeth’s work is testament to her talent in creating the perfect garment.
She will never forget that the real triumph is in producing the finest quality hand-made garments that dreams are made of.
With the highest quality craftsmanship, Elbeth and her team create master pieces.
Meticulously detailed, uniquely personal, and constructed from only the finest and most luxurious materials sourced from around the world – an Elbeth Gillis couture piece is forever.
Elbeth has designed two incredible collections for 2017 now available at six selected stockists around the UK.
Luxury is comprised of exquisitely detailed, full-length gowns, while Milk and Honey is for the bride who wants to mix and match separates to get her defining look.
Today I want to focus on “Luxury”, a delicious 8-gown collection for 2017, worth poring over and savouring.
Like her previous collection, Opulence this collection is sensual though this year with an emphasis on backs and shoulders and that wonderful line from nape to waist.
Backs plunge to the hips in a variety of ways, from keyhole openings to illusion backs and lace tattoos.
Necklines also reveal more décolletage, but with a sophistication that is quite becoming.
Silhouettes include everything one could ask for, from a satin ball gown to flowy skirts to figure-‐fitting gentle mermaids.
Sourcing only the best fabrics from around the world, Elbeth employs stretch satins, silk chiffons and beautiful lace overlays..
And this time you’ll find that beading, with all its refinement and intricacy, adds the glamour that makes this collection utterly sumptuous.
Luxury ‐ you’ll want to savour it.
Thank you so much to Elbeth for sharing her exquisite new Bridal gown collection, the perfect fusion of classic design and new trends.
