Diane Lelys: the bride wears tailor made
What do young girls dream of? Prince charming, of course! And when the dream becomes reality, it’s not surprising that it’s the princess dress that gets all the votes. Young ladies, stop dreaming! Diane Lelys, trained at Monique Germain, will certainly be your good fairy and will do even better than a princess dress: a unique adornment. In the spirit of haute couture, in noble materials made in France, the custom-made dress will sublimate your forms and the silk threads and embroidered fine lace of Calais or of Chantilly, will reveal the delicate curve of your shoulders… The dress will be just like in your dream, and after five fittings in the studio-boutique and nine months of waiting (symbolic wait!), you can finally… dream with open eyes.

Au fil d’Élise: the chic of special occasion wear
The bride is, by definition, the most beautiful woman in the kingdom, but mothers-of-the-bride and mothers-in-law also have the right to be elegant! Élise Rodolphe, designer of made-to-measure gowns as well as a line of prêt-à-porter 100% made in France, will see to that and receives her clients herself. “I work from the heart”, she says. “I prefer natural materials and coloured prints that are not found elsewhere. The dress of the mother-of-the-bride, for the most beautiful day of her daughter’s life, should be neither over-the-top nor too sophisticated, but distinguished, easy to wear and in line with her personality.” Refinement, to put it simply!
