Slow fashion is not only sustainably created, but its bespoke couture turned into wearable art. Let’s take custom handmade wedding gowns to the next realm of bridal fashion through perfectly tailored and thoughtfully inspired design.

Ellen Wise Couture’s debut bridal collection Cielo celebrates the beauty of the celestial sky above and the infinite dimensions of the feminine through their customizable designs. This enchanting collection of light, airy, and embellished gowns create a gentle softness of woodland delight. They’re designed to be refined, delicate, and sophisticated. Brides, the team encourages you to make whatever changes you like to create your dream dress!

The Cielo collection is inspired by the simplicity of natural beauty. The dresses play with tulle and silk chiffons, French laces, hand beading, and delicate applique details of flowers, twigs, and vines. Standout pieces like champagne-hued Allegra are created with wildflower and vine motifs that wind along with the layered design. Other styles play with dimension and sparkle, with beading that captures the light and sends it dancing, like Perla.

What We Love

In an era where online shopping is becoming the new normal for wedding dresses, we love the custom virtual experience that Ellen Wise offers to her brides.

From the initial consultation through the final fitting the team offers a designer-direct experience for brides seeking one-of-a-kind style. Ellen provides personal sketches, fabric swatches, and a muslin prototype of the custom gown, shipped directly to the bride to try on. The team then helps via virtual consultation, and the final garment is constructed with all customizations in place, ensuring the most perfect fit. The turnaround time can be as little as two months!

They encourage brides to change the lace, skirt style, neckline, or sleeve design however they see fit. Any refinements that are needed for the dress and the vision to align are carried out seamlessly.

“It is often said that Haute Couture is the ultimate form of slow fashion. Today, “slow fashion” requires that we look even beyond the process of handcrafting our designs, and pay special attention to sustainability and ethical production of the materials we choose: is this silk environmentally sustainable? Are these laces made in ethically responsible working conditions? Is the manufacturing process contributing to local or regional pollution? These are but a few of the essential questions that I attempt to consider with each textile purchased and each design curated.”

From Ellen Wise Couture

Inspired by the beauty of the celestial sky and the infinite dimensions of the feminine persona, the Cielo Bridal Collection dresses are authentically bespoke, handcrafted gowns for the modern bride.

The collection includes design input from collaborating designer Fady Mechrek, a Lebanese couturier with over two decades of experience with Maison Elie Saab. Available for direct order and purchase, Cielo features 10 easy-to-wear pieces in a variety of silhouettes, lengths, embellishments and accessories. Each of the designs can be personalized and perfected from the comfort of home; alternatively, an in-person atelier experience is available by invitation only.

Providing an unmatched custom haute couture experience at an accessible price point, Ellen works with each bride to incorporate her own personal vision into the gown’s design. Whether it be changing the lace, skirt style, neckline, or adding sleeves, cape, capelet or a removable train, each of the designs are offered as starting points in the journey to the actualization of a bride’s dream gown.
