🌿 I’ve been dabbling in the world of Pinterest this week and came across an interesting little article about Sustainable, Fair Trade, Ethical & Slow Fashion and what those terms really mean…
As someone who works with textiles I really care about the environmental impact of my work and the clothing I create for my brides. As a bespoke dressmaker I’m ALL about slow fashion – a thoughtfully designed and produced garment which is worn, cherished and loved. I work with UK based textile suppliers and as I make all my own designs I can guarantee they’re not made with sweatshop labour or modern day slavery… but there is room for improvement 🌿 I plan to start working with textiles which are more sustainably manufactured, and next year I’m committed to become zero waste – I’m going to donate all my excess materials and offcuts to local community projects (like sewing groups at my community centre & craft classes at local schools). I’m also really keen to get my mitts on recyclable packaging materials for my Etsy shop. If anyone has recommendations on that one please let me know 🌿
What are your plans about how to live & work more sustainably?

Endless thanks to @salsabilmorrisonphotography for inviting This Modern Love to take part in this gorgeous styled shoot earlier this year – so thrilled to see the shoot featuring my Helena kimono has been featured on Rock My Wedding!
❄️ FEATURED ❄️ ROCK MY WEDDING ❄️
“If you’re having a winter wedding, using blue can sometimes feel scary, as it can be a very cold colour. But chose a soft and delicate shade like cornflower blue, and pair it with gold accents and soft pink tones, and you have a beautiful colour palette that feels seasonal, but warm. Think winter sunrises – that perfectly crisp cold light of a clear blue sky, tinged with the delicate pink warmth of the low sun” – @rockmywedding

Beautiful bride Anna wore a bespoke This Modern Love gown for her gorgeously stylish wedding this summer at the Hampstead Heath Pergola 💗
I met with Anna at my studio and she blended two of her favourite designs together; the sheer lace petal appliqué bodice with a cut away back from the Victoria gown and the ivory tulle princess style skirt with appliqués scattered at the waist and over the hips from the Rachel gown… and voila! A beautiful gown for a beautiful bride 💗
Huge congratulations to gorgeous couple Anna & Zak – I’ve loved seeing your beautiful wedding photos (📷 stunning photography by Maureen du Preez) – wishing you both a happily married life together! 💗 xxx
Gorgeous bride Katie wearing This Modern Love for her romantic wedding in Lewes 💕 💕💕
Katie chose an exquisite soft sage green silk for the lining of her bespoke gown, with champagne tulle skirt & a stunning cream corded lace with eyelash fringing for the bodice of her gown.
Love these captures of Katie’s stylish day in Lewes and gorgeous outdoor celebrations with lanterns. Congratulations to the beautiful happy couple! 💕 xxx

Love this pretty autumnal styled shoot in Italy last month with London based photographer @IraGelormino, featuring Modern Love lace gowns & ivory tulle veil… 💗
So excited that my Victoria floral appliqué bridal gown design has been featured on superstar wedding blog ‘Aisle Society‘ 😍
“An exquisite floral appliqué lace on a tulle background gives this dress an illusion effect and creates a romantic bridal look. It also features a v neckline and striking cut away back design before falling to a simple a line duchess satin skirt with a white chiffon overlay and dramatic train.“
This gorgeous styled shoot is the work of Victoria JK Lamburn who shot the series ‘Perfect Wilderness’ at Kynance Cove in Cornwall.
Take a peek at my Victoria gown available in my Etsy shop & get in touch to book an appointment at my studio for a free design consultation 💗
Thanks ‘And So To Wed‘ for their article on independent Bridal designers and for featuring This Modern Love!
Their post features my Miranda gown from my 2017 collection lookbook shoot at Caroline Chapel Gardens, London…
