Charlie Brear had been a stylist for 10 years when she was required to source a collection of original vintage wedding dresses for a commercial shoot. On selling dresses afterwards she was inspired to start The Vintage Wedding Dress Company in 2005. Spurred on by the growing interest Charlie was receiving she then decided to launch her capsule collection of made-to-order bridal gowns offering a contemporary take on vintage glamour. It’s success led to the first collection selling to market in 2011. The company re-branded to ‘Charlie Brear’ in 2013 in time for the first mainline fashion ready-to-wear collection, which, similar to Bridal has Charlie’s signature feel of beautifully cut silhouettes in exquisitefabrics, all made in London.
With a fashion-led aesthetic the Charlie Brear 2016 bridal collection offers a stunning range of gowns in printed silk organza, pleated chiffon and geometric lace. With contemporary beaded touches, a continued focus on co-ords and an expanded additions range, the collection can be styled in ever more innovative and beautiful ways.
