Leah S Designs is now designing wedding dresses in black, blush pink, latte and champagne. Leah loves coloured dresses now, after 14 years of making dresses in white and ivory. We spoke with her to uncover more about the gorgeous coloured dresses currently available on her website.
Leah started incorporating colour in the wedding dresses at Leah S Designs about two years ago, starting with an all purple dress. Now, her coloured range has expanded to over 10 different styles! If you would like to give your wedding a unique touch, go with a dash of colour in your outfit. Leah believes that champagne with ivory gives off an especially couture look and feel.
Ivory bridal lace over Latte trend
Leah loves trend spotting from American designers and taking in her customers’ feedback, which led her to finally incorporating colour to her fashion label. She follows coutourists on Instagram and noticed a lot of ‘ivory lace over latte’ going on, took inspiration, and created the Georgie and Katherine wedding dresses in those two tones.
“As a designer, you learn very quickly which colours are safe to use. You can’t go wrong with neutrals – for example, the blush pink colour has the power to warm up a cool skin tone. The latte can make you look more tan and the champagne can even out your skin tone if you’re on the darker side.”
Black wedding dresses
From our previous interview with Leah, we found out that she LOVES black wedding dresses and she even displayed a black wedding dress outside her store! She told us that wearing black would be a real “rebel statement” because it’s unexpected. If Leah could only wear ONE colour for the rest of her life, she would wear black, black and MORE BLACK. She was seriously considering only having black and white clothes a few years ago!
When asked about her thoughts on multi-coloured dresses, Leah explained that she’s been highly keen on doing a multi-tone pink and ivory wedding dress. She also shared that Leah S Designs’ designers are experimenting with every type of dye they can find. For now, she’s trying out different looks with pink coloured lace, so keep an eye out for it in her next collection!
The inspiration behind her latest photo shoot was to experiment with Leah S Designs’ popular Tamworth and Eildon wedding dresses by making them up in black instead of ivory. This was a creative decision, inspired by the Time’s Up movement, to conduct a collaborate photoshoot at the Melbourne Botanical Gardens. Modelled by Elizabeth Anne, photographed by six star photography, makeup by Donna Lee, hair by Amanda Durrington and flowers by Foxy evergreen.
