Brides are transported to a bygone era of romance and luxury as they enter the Gwendolynne salon. The designer’s relentless pursuit of timeless beauty appeals to a contemporary bride who’s seeking a unique heirloom that can be treasured for generations.
Working with a French trained hand-beader in her Fitzroy studio, Gwendolynne choses each detail, each bead, technique and thread to create a unique embellishment exclusive to the label.
With over 25 year experience, Gwendolynne’s intuitive approach to her work has resulted in a unique signature look, with details that include luxurious couture hand embellishment (some featuring Japanese Beads and Swarovski crystals) and exclusive fabrics (such as French, Swiss and Italian lace) – the styling is sensual and romantic with an effortless elegance.
With a design approach that explores tradition in a modern context, each Gwendolynne collection evolves in a well-versed blend of historical references from Victorian, Art Deco, Nouveau and mid-century design and is lovingly made in Fitzroy, Melbourne.
