Behind The Brand
Advice for wedding dress shopping…
Try to listen to your own style — trusting your instinct is essential. You know your style better than anyone. It can be difficult, but reduce how much advice you take on from friends and family.
Start things off concentrating on your personal style. Who are your favorite designers? What is it that you love about them? Think about your style icons. What about their look draws you in?
Your wedding gown should be a reflection of your everyday personal style, just kicked up a notch. Sticking with your every day style will help you feel at ease when trying on wedding dresses (something you don’t do everyday!)
What was the spark for your brand? Where did the story begin?
As the name suggests, The Mews began on a quaint little Mews in Bristol. Gail, my Mother and business partner opened our first boutique, while I went to school and then pursued my ballet career. Then, after I spent time in France and discovered our bridal designers, I knew we had to bring them to the UK. Eventually I joined the company and we opened up our London boutique.
The French have an unparalleled attention to detail – a standard of work they completely set for themselves. Every intricate detail is executed with a precision and passion that reflects everything they stand for. But besides the quality, what draws us to French designers is the way they marry elegance with ease.
What inspires you creatively?
Paris. It’s mostly a “know-how” reference in terms of fashion; it’s the encyclopedia of couture.
Most memorable place you’ve travelled?
Joshua tree, California. I’ve never seen light quite like it.
On a typical weekend we’ll find you?
Walking my dog Alfie, I love being outside in nature. Being a country girl originally I feel it’s good for the soul to try and get away from the craziness of a city.
A favorite quote?
“I’ve always had access to other worlds. We all do because we dream ” – Frida Kahlo
