If you can imagine the finest French maiden perched sedately on a plush velvet antique carved love seat, making her way through the magnificent shuttered stately rooms, dancing on the staircases of a majestic Chateau and whirling and twirling in the French countryside, you’re already half-way there.

From the evocative mink ‘Gatsby’ gown – resplendent in its stunning beading (and dare we say with a to-die-for back detail), the huge, voluminous petal veil that could and perhaps should feature, in its very own French Midsummer nights dream-like fairytale, to the the ‘Ooh-la-la’ swoon-worthy pièce de résistance that is ‘Magnifique’ (or ‘the dress with a bow’. I mean, could you find a gown that was more French?) These are to name but a few in the collection, so sit back and relax end enjoy this showcase of French-style beauty…

  • That’s always something that I found interesting about French dresses – they are always so unique and different than what you typically see! I think French dresses are more elegant, and seductive in style and make great additions to weddings that have a succulent/lavish theme. The large manor estate goes perfectly with these dresses!
