Lauren Judith-Anne crafts bespoke bridal gowns for one-of-a-kind brides.
Hello lovely brides and lingerie lovers. I am a South African, dachshund obsessed, tea drinking ‘sew-aholic’ with an unwavering infatuation with the luxury lace aisle. I have a serious love for lingerie, bridal gowns and generally anything created with delicate textiles.
I just want to play with fabric and make beautiful things.
I completed my degree in Fashion and Textiles with Durban University of Technology in 2015 and I have been immersed in the bridal scene ever since. Being a total pattern and sewing junkie, I personally fit and complete all of my gowns so that no detail is left unturned. My favourite part about my work is being involved in creating each gown from beginning to end and really getting to know my lovely brides throughout the journey.
Most days, I can be found in my studio with a hot ‘cuppa’ in hand (very important part of life to make me a happy person), embellishing garments by hand, surrounded by our fur babies, each of whom you will come to meet and know individually, should we work together on a bespoke bridal gown just for you.
Lauren didn’t just bring my dream dress to life. She was my Skirt Fairy the entire day, carrying around Kg’s of lace and tulle, and making sure it was correctly “floofed” at every moment. She was also responsible for the first reason I cried on my wedding day, giving me a breathtaking gift: a framed artwork of me in my dress. She is not just a designer – she is an artist, a creator, a visionary, and a friend.
Intuitive design, beautifully crafted. Just love your beautiful lacework!
