The Sappho collection is inspired by the ancient Greek poet Sappho; a fiercely passionate woman whose words still burn brightly over two and a half thousand years after they were written. These dresses are romantic and wild, serving women who desire the comfort to experience their wedding day unrestricted, and the freedom to dance the night away with their lover. Each dress will come with a hand-printed gold letterpress card containing the heavenly poetry that inspired it.
This collection is our most ethical and eco-friendly yet, featuring luxurious fabrics which are kind to the earth and a sensuous delight to wear. Our materials include organic chemical-free peace silk which is friendly to silkworms and the environment, a vegan alternative to silk made of orange fibre, a sumptuous satin made from organic rose petal fibres, and even a super-soft lightweight crêpe made entirely of recycled bottles. Perfect for the eco-conscious bride looking to make sustainable fashion choices without compromising on quality or sophistication.
Features within the collection include a variety of necklines from plunging Vs to stylish crew necks, myriad sleeve styles, and statement back details such as keyhole openings, backless bodices, glass pearl buttons and sheer lace panels to show a suggestion of skin. The achingly delicate lace trims used are made by a ninth-generation family of lace makers on century-old Leavers lace machines in Nottingham. The subtle gleam of gold details and scintillating sequins found within some of the fabrics really come alive when day turns to night and will leave you spellbound at dusk.
The inclusion of separates alongside full gowns means that there are at least 30 different configurations on offer from this collection, so our zealously individual brides are free to choose a style that suits both their personality and figure.
