Today I’m thrilled to spotlight on the work of Eliza Jane Howell & share her exquisite Stardust Collection of vintage inspired Wedding Dresses.
Inspired by the stars and constellations they mirror the beauty of the night sky and beyond into space.

Renowned designer Gill Harvey has brought together her years of experience to create the Eliza Jane Howell Bridal Collection.
A graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, Gill Harvey was originally known for her Medici knitwear collection.
More recently it is her collaborations for the labels Invite and After Six that have kept her to the forefront of the occasion wear industry.
These labels are now known as The Gill Harvey Collection.
Named after her grandmother, the Eliza Jane Howell Bridal Collection has been designed for the modern day bride who would love to wear a dress that oozes the glamour, sophistication and decadence of the golden age of fashion.
Taking inspiration from exquisite vintage gowns, the Eliza Jane Howell collection is the epitome of grown up glamour.
New for 2017 is the exquisite Stardust Collection…
Speaking of the Collection…
“We shot the Stardust Collection at the Asylum Chapel, a stunning grade 2 listed chapel in Caroline Gardens, South London.”
“The chapel is part of a complex of almshouses built in the early 1800’s and “asylum” is the old sense of the word meaning sanctuary.”
“During the Second World War the chapel was bombed and was never fully resorted.”
“This gave the space just the mood that we were looking for.”
“The dresses in the collection are all named after stars and constellations and the highlights include Zenith with its more contemporary and modern looking beading and the elegant but sexy Zeta dress, which echoes the bias cut dresses of old Hollywood.”
“This fully hand beaded gown drapes over the body showing just a hint of a woman’s curves and with its low, sexy strappy back, it’s a dress worthy of any modern day Hollywood starlet.”
“Our hand beaded Mitzi and Mimi capes are already causing a sensation.”
Thank you so much to the team for sharing their sensational new vintage inspired wedding dresses.
They are quite simply out of this world…
