about the brand
The proposal of the Lela Rose brand is to make the dress show your personality and the style of the wearer and not the other way around. “Our brides definitely want a dress, but they don't want to feel like the dress they're wearing. That's why they never look like the traditional one,” says Rose.
That's why Rose usually works in two areas: classic dresses with sculptural flowers and softer, more feminine dresses with floral appliqués, a hint of sparkle or an interesting cleavage.
“I think something we're known for is that we don't just offer strapless dresses,” she said. "Our most popular dresses are the ones that aren't strapless."
The inspiration behind this latest collection by Lela Rose was based on the idea of “bringing southern charm to the modern era”. The line featured feminine details and clean lines (the designer's trademarks), with extravagant touches such as floral appliqués, embroidery, chokers, lace and a vintage touch.
Dresses that are perfect for the bride whose style is both feminine and modern. Her favorite from the collection is a strapless dress tied with an origami bow on the front.
The collection brings together various models, such as a dress with bow, floral application, with strap, strapless, with swing, pants… a collection of 10 dresses to suit a range of modern brides.
