BRIDAL GOWNS WITH VINTAGE SOUL
For 20 years, we have been making vintage style bridal gowns, with a romantic and casual flair. Our dresses stand out for their impeccable finishes, delicate lace and poetic elegance.
All dresses are made by artisan hands in our small workshop in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. We design dresses with vintage soul with a special attention to the sustainability of their sewing and fabrics.
We also gather original vintage pieces and elaborate unique pieces made with antique materials.
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY IS ROOTED IN EVERYTHING WE DO
We select and conserve vintage pieces for their fabric, pattern, or style. We attend trade fairs and markets around the world to locate the very best clothing and materials. We also choose suppliers in the textile world whose unique approaches complement your vintage look.

Her particular vision allows her to create current and romantic designs with a nod to the elegance of other times.
“My goal is to bring to your hands pieces made with patience and savoir-faire in our atelier.
I am passionate about working with lace and delicate antique fabrics that have been rescued from another era.”
”Fashions fade, style is eternal.”
