Back in May, Stella McCartney helped make Meghan Markle's wedding day dreams come true with the elegant high-neck reception dress she designed for the now-duchess. Now, it's your turn: Stella McCartney is about to make all your bridal fantasies a reality, too, with the launch of her first ever wedding dress collection, Stella McCartney "Made With Love."
Renowned for her legendary evening dresses and bespoke designs, Stella McCartney is making her official grand entrance into the world of bridal with today's launch of Stella McCartney "Made With Love," her new collection of wedding dresses and bridal pieces, perfect for modern brides who crave clean silhouettes and sleek details.
"I wanted to design pieces that would be comfortable and special and have a strong emotional attachment, but still make you feel like yourself," Stella McCartney exclusively told Brides. "So when it came to designing ‘Made With Love,’ I thought it was important for the name to feel more personal and loving and reflect the experience and feeling of that special day."
"Having been a bride myself and being honored to have been asked many times to do wedding gowns for some of my dear, close friends; it’s something that I feel very passionately about and is very close to my heart," she explained. "I think that in this day and age the wedding day is something very different to how it’s traditionally perceived, and I think that the house of Stella McCartney really represents something a little more effortless."
And these wedding dresses are truly effortless. Think unfussy silhouettes, the sultry surprise of an open back, and modern attached capes.
This new collection isn't just filled with frocks, by the way. It also features a sophisticated ivory tuxedo and lace embroidered jumpsuit for bold, unconventional brides or those looking for a second outfit for their wedding after-party. Dance floor, here you come.
"There’s also a personal message inside each garment to stay with you forever," hints Stella McCartney, who has designed each piece with a sewn-in blue tag, toting a sweet message from McCartney herself. "Something blue and something new," she explains. How special is that?
The 17-piece Stella McCartney "Made With Love" collection is available at select retail partners including Nordstrom, as well as in Stella McCartney stores by private appointment.
