We chat to British bridal designer Emily Victoria White about her stunning designs and plans for the year ahead…
What makes Emily Victoria White gowns unique?
Having started off in the fashion industry, I tend to design for the more fashion-forward bride. If you’re looking for a modern elegant look with gorgeous lightweight fabric’s, then EVW is for you! Each dress is designed to be fun and flirty- when you’re wearing a dress all day, you want it to look just as good in the evening as it does in the day!
Why should brides choose Emily Victoria White?
It’s important for each of our brides to feel unique in their chosen gown, which is why we offer our made to measure service as well as our standard UK sizing. With our made to measure service, you can make changes to the design of the dress to make it feel more personal to your own style. It also ensures your dress will fit you perfectly, with no extra alteration costs! Every dress is handmade in our Hertfordshire studio, which means you can relax in the knowledge that your dress is being expertly made close by.
What advice would you give to brides starting their dress search?
Let’s be honest, most girls start their dress search way before they’re even engaged – I know I did! I always ask brides, ‘What style of dresses do you usually wear?’ this will give you a good indication of what will suit you and what you will feel most comfortable in. The important thing is to not get too caught up in what you’ve seen in a picture. What looks good on that particular model may not suit your body shape. You can put the same dress on 3 different women and it will look completely different on every single person. So keep an open mind!
What is your best selling gown and why?
Our best seller so far has been the Amelia gown – gorgeous ivory guipure lace with a nude crepe underneath. This dress features cropped sleeves, a low square shaped back, and a cheeky split down the front side. The best thing about this dress is that it is a straight cut dress, constructed from a stretch crepe, so the fit is just beautiful! We have also made a few adaptations of this dress for our made to measure brides by changing the bottom of the skirt into a fishtail, with a train. Overall, this dress is fun and flirty with no hassle! It’s my favorite too!
What can we expect from Emily Victoria White next?
As always we will continue to design with a fresh look at bridal fashion, with even more variety of texture and colour. Taking inspiration from brides themselves and creating what they want but cannot yet find. 2017 has already started off as an amazing year for EVW, and as we search for new stockists, we hope to make our gowns more accessible to brides all over the country.
