There’s a newbie coming to Kudos Bridal Boutiques – get her on your radar pronto.
“We’re going to be launching the exclusive Wendy Makin couture collection in the new year and can barely contain ourselves,” unveils owner Michelle Scott. “Wendy is recognised as one of Australia’s best bridal designers. After more than 30 years, her dresses have become known for their quality of design, fit and manufacture. She never fails to amaze us. Head to our Edinburgh store for fashion-forward hues and out-of-the-box styles!”
The strapless Flora gown (above and below, £POA) surely counts as the latter: although its sweetheart neckline and strapless silhouette is undoubtedly a classic, it’s constructed from metres of more unusual, multi-coloured botanical lace, pooling delicately into a small train.
“This season, my mantra is less is more,” Wendy explains. “Utilising soft, floating fabrics, beautiful laces and exquisite textures, this collection is the definition of today’s modern bride. It’s largely unstructured and, most importantly, easy to wear. My signature aesthetic is simple elegance, and, since I started my label in 1993, I employ only the best materials I can get my hands on to achieve a timeless look and feel. I love working closely with my brides and this, I believe, is what keeps my gowns fresh.”
Stay tuned for incredible 3D florals, ribbon-strewn bodices, lingerie-inspired boning and unusual square backs from this cutting-edge, Australian brand.
