One of the first images that caught my eye at the newly-launched Etsy Weddings was a dress by Claire La Faye. This silk wedding gown is the featured image for the dresses category and, after a few more clicks, I soon found myself slightly obsessing over the label.
CLF by Claire La Faye is a handmade bridal range, available exclusively online. Described as “casual with a luxury edge”, these dresses are beautiful. It’s an American label, which means UK brides would face a little increase on the postage costs, but judging by these pictures it’d be worth it – and the designer asks for all your measurements to ensure a completely perfect fit, thus eliminating the worry of ordering something that doesn’t look amazing on arrival.
OK, I always struggle to resist anything handmade, but just look at all the details! Feathers, beads, ruffles, lace… gorgeous.
