Amongst a sea of labels in the bridal industry, there are designers you stumble across whose pieces completely stop you. There’s a magic behind their work that’s hard to put your finger on, a passion you know comes from a deeply inspired place. And as you delve a little deeper into their story, you learn that it's a boldness these creatives share that separates their work. A desire to do things differently, to take the hard route if they have to, to create work that does justice to the ideas they dream up.
When it comes to boldness and passion, Daphne Newman has it in spades. Daphne's veils are inimitable, and the difference lies in the story imbued in every piece. Scouring the globe for rare European fabrics, Daphne creates designs inspired by the memories of her journey to find each piece of lace, and the people behind it. The result is a decadent, couture-like approach to veils, with intricate embroidery and delicate scalloped lace woven over diaphanous layers of tulle, or blends of beading and fringing that feel like wearable art.
Here’s a little peek at some of our favorites we recently shot in NYC. Head over to the Daphne Newman website to shop the collection or enquire about a bespoke piece that can be customised to suit your gown.
