Some people like to have something different from others in terms of fashion and style, they like being creative. This is exactly the person of director of British fashion label Mother of Pearl, Amy Powney.
She said that during her wedding period, she struggled to find a dress she liked, and so naturally, she designed it to her taste.
She told the Independent; ‘I’m not a traditional wedding gown girl, but as a designer, I had the luxury of making my own outfit.’
She has launched a new bridal capsule collection, tagged ‘Pearly Whites’, the purpose is to help brides that are looking for something of slight different.
According to Powney, ‘I decided I wanted to offer options to other women out there who like me, don’t want to get married in a conventional wedding dress. The Pearly Whites line features beautiful, easy-to-wear pieces handmade in our studio.’
The features of her small collection are;
Two mid-calf length shift dresses, one with long fluted sleeves and cut-away shoulders, and the other with puffed sleeves, shoulder ruffles and an embellished pearl collar. There is also a chic high-waisted pair of trousers with faux pearl detail on the waist and a matching ruffled shirt, and a pair of white mules with an oversized bow and a pearl lined strap.
She also added something uniquely whimsical for the bride, the pieces made entirely from organic materials, with long lasting techniques.
Due to her creativity, she won the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund in 2017 and has however, made Mother of Pearl more eco-friendly by spending the best part of her prize money on it.
Therefore, for brides looking for a wedding outfit that is both a style statement and sustainably sound, the answer is ‘Pearly Whites collection.’!
