The Enchanted Collection is a new, exclusive and bespoke bridal collection from Kasia Austin. Known for her exquisitely embroidered gossamer gowns, Kasia draws inspiration from the ethereal and vibrant colours of the countryside around her West Sussex home.
The epitome of intricacy and craftsmanship, Kasia's romantic bridal collection, with its whispers of fairy stories and countryside weddings, is redolent of love. It hards back to the days of romantic weddings in historical novels, showcasing a range of gowns, from the beautifully simple to the highly ornate.
Kasia colour washes and embroiders natural fabrics – luxurious satins, smooth silks, floaty chiffon and exquisite French lace to create her fairytale-style. "The fabrics I use, the chiffons and silk, move differently with the bride," Kasia explains. "This new collection is more fitted, yet still floaty and flexible, the material moving like waves in the wind, ensuring that the bride looks radiant on her wedding day."
Making each dress is a personal statement, with ideas and inspiration taken from the heart of the bride, is the very essence of Kasia's designs. Whether you have a beach wedding or a countryside celebration, whether you're barefoot in the sand or with the grass between your toes, there's a dress or you.
We discuss which flowers will be used to embellish the dress," she continues. "If she, or even her grandmother, loves a certain flower, we can incorporate that, using old applique techniques to decorate the fabric. The style of these flowers and their placement make a truly unique dress that is immensely personal to each bride."
Kasia likens embroidery to painting: "The gown is my canvas and the needle and thread my brush – this is what makes these dresses so special."
