“Simplicity well-carried out” is how wedding dress designer Delphine Manivet describes her personal style and her designs in an interview with bhldn.com.
Manivet chose to end her studies of economics to pursue her true dream of becoming a fashion designer. Manivet moved to Paris and started working for a design house until one day it was time for her to find a dress for her own wedding. Unable to find anything that felt truly her, Manivet designed her own dress. She channeled her creative energy into wedding dress design and now has her own design house in Paris.
Manivet’s ideas are inspired by eighteenth century portraits, the symbolism of the wedding gown, and the individual femininity of every girl. Her goal and biggest challenge is to create timeless looks.
Her dresses are all about the mix of modern and vintage and dream and simplicity. Manivet looks to every day as an opportunity to gather inspiration for her next design. The designer loves looking for vintage inspiration at flea markets and charity sales.
Manivet names the dresses in her collections after men’s names. “For me, it’s a way to pay tribute to the man who is never included in the process of choosing or making the dress, but counts in the choice for sure”, she says.
Manivet’s looks are absolutely beautiful and worth taking a look at. I love the simplistic femininity of her gowns and her classic use of white! Please read this article on Manivet for more about her. Here is her website. Browse through her collections; they are stunning.
