About the Designer  

With a love for fluid silks, unusual laces and luxurious sheers, designer Stephanie Garbuttā€™s dresses are an escape from the uncomfortable corsets and layers of net that confine traditional bridal design.  A romantic with a little British edginess, she seeks synchronicity between fashion-forward style and bohemian dreaminess, favouring only truly wearable dresses.

Stephanie trained in Fashion Design at Nottingham Trent University School of Art and Design, graduating in 2005.  An experienced creative pattern cutter with a wealth of technical expertise, she has acquired an arsenal of advanced couture sewing techniques through dedicated practice and a spell with Brit-cool fashion label Emilio de la Morena. Fundamental to Stephanie's design ethos is that each garment must be as beautifully constructed as it is visually wondrous.  A devoted daydreamer with a love for storytelling, she imagines the wearer in an inspiring environment, picking vintage details and cultural references for each design.  Her bride might be twirling in a Kaftan on the beaches of Essaouira or sipping a cocktail in 1930s India while Billie Holiday plays on a scratchy gramophone.

Stephanie has been creating bespoke wedding dresses for private clients since 2014 and has built a reputation for achieving harmony of design, comfort and luxury for her brides.  Please see the contact page to request a private consultation for a bespoke gown or click here to see her debut ready-to-wear collection ā€˜The Hourā€™.

My goodness Stephanie you saved the day! Thank you so much for your help at such short notice and for making the absolute best of a bad situation. The dress fitted perfectly and was so much better than the shop could have ever done. Despite the stress Iā€™m actually glad things worked out as they did, to have something bespoke, just for me was truly worth it! Thank you so much for everything
