The Couture Collective #1 Meet Ann Wilson of Strictly Bridal by Ann Wilson

We love our new issue of QB, and we love our feature on some fabulous Queensland wedding gown designers. In fact, we love it so much that we're going to feature one designer a week so we can share them all!

Here is the very first ...

Ann Wilson 
Bride: Katie 

Thanks to multi-award winning designer Ann Wilson, newlywed Katie was able to float down the aisle in her dream gown – an exquisite creation featuring French lace and a dreamy full skirt. Based on the Gold Coast, Ann's dedication, love and passion for designing has seen her become a creative force on the Australian bridal scene, with her designs known for their feminine silhouettes and beautiful fabrics. 

How does this bride's gown embody your label's aesthetic?
After working together with Katie the result was an exquisite contemporary and feminine wedding gown with a full flowing skirt.

Did the bride have any particular requirements which she wanted her dream gown to embody?

Katie’s only requirements were the full flowing skirt and French lace.

What kind of wedding was it designed to suit?
A formal wedding.

Your label in three words?
Timeless. Exquisite. Romantic.

Are there any key trends which have come through in your latest collection?
It’s a very feminine collection featuring beautiful fabrics, soft silk organza, lots of beautiful different types of laces, layering, fishtail silhouettes and amazing beadwork. The process of creating the perfect bridal gown is very exciting for me designing is like weaving magic.

As a designer - are you meticulously organised, a chaotic creative or free- thinking? 
I believe the process of creating the perfect bridal gown is like weaving magic and for me that means free thinking.

You are inspired by ...
Travelling to beautiful new cities and meeting wonderful new people. 

Your favourite fashion designer?
Akira Isogawa

Your best advice to girls looking for their dream gown?
Attention to the overall fit of the gown and structure and of course you want to feel like a princess!!

Do you have particular music, candles, flowers, etc. which are always in your workroom?
Flowers and beautiful photos of family.

What is your vision for Strictly Bridal in the future?
I want to create new designs that are fresh, interesting and different and show my identity as a designer. I want to make the process of choosing a wedding gown the most enjoyable and memorable experience ever. My goal is to make every bride who wears a Strictly Bridal by Ann Wilson gown the happiest bride ever.
