The ‘Love Awakened’ couture veil collection from Daphne Newman brings to life the belief that tradition can be honoured without the dismissal of personal style.
The Canadian born designer, uses her thirty years of work in couture design throughout every piece she creates. ‘Love Awakened’ is a collection filled with feminine, ethereal detailing that is carefully created to stand the test of time; pieces become cherished heirlooms for lucky wearers as they are not simply an afterthought, but instead a careful reflection of their own personal style.
Each piece is handmade, using fabrics the designer herself collects on her travels around the world (including silks and exclusive laces) from Europe and the Middle East. The time laborious skills of yesteryear are treasured by Daphne, who takes pride in techniques like weaving, beading and beautiful embroidery to create special masterpieces. My favourite veil, ‘Lavinia’, focuses heavily on drama. The piece, made of 100% Italian silk tulle, is striking with its delicate lace edging adorned with beading and pearls and a fine petal edge.
The pieces are available to Australians via the website.
