When I first began English Wedding I remember writing a little ‘about’ piece. The blog was for every bride and groom, and to showcase every side of English style from classic elegance through punk and folk, via city chic and our artisan heritage. I stand by that today: we’ve shared amazing inspiration and real weddings for every kind of couple. I’m proud of that.
And in these unsettling times I’m determined to keep supporting independent wedding businesses as much as I possibly, possibly can. Today I’d like to share sustainable British bridalwear brand Lee Klabin. Lee has just unveiled her AW 20/21 collection of statement bridalwear, fusing high fashion with incredible ethics and a look I just LOVE!
We’re right behind London designer Lee Klabin when she says the woman should wear the dress; not the dress wear the woman. Lee’s bridalwear is designed to be worn again and again, evolving into a beautiful part of your wardrobe: a treasured piece to re-style countless times.
The cornerstone values of Lee Klabin bridalwear are enduring, disruptive & dynamic femininity. All pieces are made in Britain, with luxuriously soft and 100% sustainable materials: UK bred Alpaca and cruelty-free silk, cactus leather, milk protein jerseys and Seacell /Merino yarns. All feathers (which are used in Lee’s jewellery collection) and leathers are reclaimed and ethically sourced. This is design with a conscience and without compromise.
Lee Klabin bridalwear stands out a mile from the rest, with gloriously flowing knitwear, 1920s inspired decadence and fashion forward styling. It’s a beautiful reflection of the values of the brand: Enduring, Disruptive & Dynamic Femininity with a big commitment to celebrating the evolving beauty of women, by creating exceptionally made sustainably chic pieces that emphasize their varied styles on all occasions.
Lee’s mission is to change perceptions of sustainable clothing and disrupt the codes of traditional fashion. She is passionate about designing pieces that exude responsible fashion or “Ethi-chic”, helping serve society and the preservation of our planet.
To further decrease the brand’s carbon footprint, Lee has meticulously selected only UK based production companies to make her collection, to help both our local economy and the environment. This coupled with the brands enduring support of its chosen four charities enables its customers to regularly give back through the brand.
