Inspired by romanticism, great love stories, adventure and the beauty around us; Lorie x pieces feature hand inked and photographic prints and are made from luxurious silks, laces and brocades. The collections feature both gowns and separates that are feminine and fluid, unique and romantic – all designed and created in East London.
Recently described as ‘one of the most exciting young designers to have emerged into British bridal fashion of late’ by Annabel of award winning blog Love My Dress, and gaining support from the likes of Rock My Wedding & Stylist Magazine, designer Laura is continuing to develop one-off pieces with brides looking for something a little bit different, yet still beautiful and elegant.
Laura offers a bespoke service where brides-to-be are invited to have input into the design process of their wedding day outfit. Inspired by the styles featured in the capsule ranges – or a completely new idea – designs are developed to the brides’ requirements and vision.
An initial complimentary consultation takes place where ideas are discussed and design and print ideas can then be developed. The print can consist of anything from pretty flowers, to something completely personal to the couple, and can be photographic or hand drawn. This allows each garment to be completely unique and personal to the bride.
A toile is then developed to the brides’ measurements, and fittings take place to ensure the pieces are the perfect fit for the wedding day. During this time designs can be tweaked and adapted as they evolve, allowing a bride more freedom and to truly be a part of the process.
Ideally at least 6 months are required for the journey from start to finish, but this depends on the complexity of the design. As a rough guide, gowns start at £1750 & separates at £600 but are individually priced based on style, fabrics etc. Please get in touch to discuss further.
All garments are designed and made in London, and any digital printing is done in the UK.
Laura graduated from the London College of Fashion with a final collection of printed bridal gowns, developed from feeling that there was a gap in the market for something a little different & alternative, but which still used traditional references such as covered buttons & laces – something ethereal and romantic, yet with a modern twist. After working in the fashion industry for the past few years (and making a few bespoke gowns alongside), the idea never truly left her mind, and she revisited these ideas and grew the collection to also include separates, launching Lorie x officially in Autumn 2014. The designs bring something fresh to the bridal sector, with the unique option of having a print incorporated into a design which is completely personal to the bride, ensuring the outcomes are individual and extra special – each garment telling a different tale.
