Today I’m absolutely thrilled to spotlight on the work of Eliza Jane Howell & share her exquisite Debutante Collection of vintage inspired Wedding Dresses.
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
She says of her new Debutante Collection…
“We love all the fashion from the 1920’s and 1930’s and especially the look of Lady Diana Cooper, Margaret Duchess of Argyll and the Mitford Sisters.”
“The mood of the photography from this period, mainly by Cecil Beaton , was the inspiration for our Debutante Collection shoot.”
“The Debutante collection itself is all about glamour, and we built on the beaded look from our past Legend and Decadence Collections.”
“We took the degree of beading to the next level, using more elaborate and complex beading techniques.”
“Inspiration was very much from the Art Deco Movement and iconic builds from this period, especially the Chrysler Building in New York.”
“But it important to say the collection is vintage inspired, so we have designed a new vintage look and we would like to think that we have created the new age of the wedding dress.”
Here is just a small selection of vintage inspired wedding dresses from the collection…
Thank you so much to the brand for sharing their stunning collection.
The romance of bygone eras is as beautiful today as was then.
Exceptional tailoring, sleek lines, intricate beading, and vibrant colour brings together a collection that exceeds special, its extraordinary.
