ENCHANTING GOWNS. We love coming across emerging designers, especially when we feel so strongly about their creations! London native, bridal couture designer Moira Hughes is one; bringing her experience and knowledge of the European bridal couture market to Australia. Her gowns are designed with a modern, romantic aesthetic in mind, and are made for the bride to enjoy throughout her wedding day (even whilst dancing!). Moira, who's studio is based in Paddington, Sydney, works with brides throughout the country to create the perfect dress for them, using beautifully unique silks and laces not readily available in Australia. We recently spoke with her to gain an insight into how she became involved in bridal couture designing, and some tips she has picked up over the years.
What inspired you to get into designing, particularly in the bridal space?
I have always loved designing wedding gowns! We get to work with the very best fabrics from around the world and create a gown that a bride remembers forever. Designing and creating a wedding dress that allows a bride to feel the best she has ever looked is an amazing feeling. There is nothing like the thought of the bride taking those first steps down the aisle towards her husband in the perfect gown - unbeatable!
