Lesley Cutler Bridal Wear, established in 1994, and based in Milton Keynes, is a little piece of bridal royalty. Shaking hands with Lesley, is shaking hands with history. She has worked on beautiful gowns for some of the most famous, and instantly recognisable faces in the world, but as she is so discrete, she doesn't like to mention it.
Her bespoke gowns are unique, and inspired, with no gown ever being reproduced twice, so you are assured of a totally original outfit, whether it be your bridal gown, bridesmaids, or for the Mother Of The Bride, or Groom.
When you visit Lesley for your bespoke gown, you first have a private consultation with her, not to try on gowns, but to talk about 'your gown'. You choose the fabrics, the lace, the beading, sourced from the very best suppliers in the country. Lesley will sketch your ideas and so starts your journey to creating your totally unique, hand made wedding gown.
.for me dressmaking is a passion
Lesley trained for 4 years at the London college of fashion, graduating to work for Norman Hartnell as a hand finisher and then top quality companies including Alexon, Aquascutum, Planet, and Windsmoor.
As senior pattern cutter Lesley worked on the Bridal Range for one of Britains leading wedding dress designers, Ronald Joyce.
Lesley then became workroom manager for Royal Wedding Dress designer Elizabeth Emanuel, ordering fabrics, pattern cutting, supervising machinists and hand finishers, taking measurements and fitting clients.
The opportunity to work on some of Emanuels elaborate and imaginative creations was invaluable to Lesley, giving her a thorough knowledge of cut, proportion and balance. The expertise and skill shines through in her ability to tailor the shape to ensure a perfectly fitted dress.
Clients have the confidence to ask for anything their imagination can produce.
Lesley, inspired to do the thing she loves most, now devotes time to her own fashion design and made-to-measure Bridal wear. After all Brides-to-Be are looking for something that really stands out.
Lesley has created some of the most fashion forward and yet timeless wedding dresses for brides as well as some the most elegant and complex gowns for mature brides, who want something special, but can be a challenge to find in traditional bridal stores.
BrideCo is very proud to be associated with Lesley Cutler Bridal Wear. Unique, creative and talented, Lesley is a designer in her own right, with exceptional skills and has a fabulous small team, to ensure your gown is produced in intimate surroundings, with love and by expert hands.
