Behind The Brand
Describe the woman you design for…
The woman I design for is one who is strong and confident, and I want to emphasize this strength. I design for a woman who is authentic, proud of who she is and of her history, who values and has love for herself. She has a specific look. She doesn’t want to be like anyone else and seeks to be the author of her own aesthetic.
What is your most popular piece?
Our most popular pieces always have a fluidity about them. That’s what brides always look for in our brand.
What advice would you give to brides-to-be?
Look for a person you wholeheartedly trust to bring your wishes to reality.
As a designer, what tips do you have for brides to get the most out of their fittings?
We assist our brides by offering many choices during fittings and will often further develop these looks by working with other brands. When designing, I capture what is most interesting for the bride, and choose one of my partners to create something personal or personalized for each one. This curation is important. When I don’t have the internal capacity to produce something, I will choose a qualified partner to assist.
Do you offer a custom design service for brides? If so, how long does it take to make a custom piece?
Yes, I offer customisation to both dresses and accessories. Customising is what I love to do. To make a personalized piece, I will need about 6 months.
What advice do you give to brides to care for their gown?
Casa Emannuelle Junqueira offers a range of services to brides to care for their gowns. We have an internal washing and restoration service. We also deliver a certificate of ownership of the dress to the bride that includes a serial number. This allows her to do what she wants with the dress, including the possibility of having it modified.
Why we love it…
Combining the dreamiest of silhouettes with luxe fabrications and textural touches, we love the effortless romance of Emanuelle Junqueira’s designs and her dedication to detail.
For the bride…
Looking for bold or detailed designs that are innately modern yet steeped in a timeless allure. Emannuelle’s gowns are for the confident bride drawn to pieces that exude both elegance and charisma.
Let the gown be the statement and contrast a flowing style like the ‘Tilda’ with simple makeup and accessories.
