Form-fitted bodices and feminine silhouettes are the forefront of Jenny Lee’s collections. Peplums and corsets emphasize the bride’s figure without sacrificing sophistication.
Jenny Lee has been around textiles and designers her entire life, and has said she began designing her own outfits at age 6. Designing, mind you, not selecting! It’s no wonder she’s so keen to ensure her brides have wedding gowns with impeccable fits and exquisite fabrics.
Many of the gowns in the 2015 collection were inspired by lingerie. Body-hugging shapes, exquisite lace and beautiful flowing tulle recreated the sensual, feminine feel of the most intimate of fashion.
Trains fall just short of a statement, often in trumpet, pick-up or A-line lengths. Jenny does not forget those who prefer shorter lengths, either, with a few above-knee skirt lengths available. Perfect for eloping!
Jenny Lee’s collections always emphasize fit. Each dress is composed by a single seamstress, making them nearly couture. Instead of street sizes, measurements are taken at several points to ensure the most tailored, customized fit possible. Jenny has said she feels a wedding gown must first emphasize the bride’s beauty through fit.
Special care is given to the textiles and material used in the gowns. Jenny visits European textile factories to personally choose the materials for her designs. From silk mills of Italy to hand-picked Guipure, Alencon and Chantilly laces from France that give a vintage feel to the gowns, she often finishes her designs with glowing ivory and champagne-colored satins that create a timeless look, well-suited for weddings in any season.
Leaning on the side of modesty, many styles come with detachable lace overlays, illusion panels or tiny cap sleeves, if you find sweetheart necklines or strapless are not quite your style.
