➳ BO & LUCA Q&A | BRIDAL WEAR FOR THE DARING ROMANTIC {SYDNEY}

LUXURY SYDNEY BRIDAL DESIGNER WEDDING DRESS NEW SOUTH WALES COUTURE

"It’s so important to feel like yourself on your Wedding day, and that’s why we design our pieces to feel sensual, elegant and freeing for your big day." Shannon Pittman - Creative Director, Bo & Luca

Question: How and when was Bo & Luca born? 

Answer: Bo & Luca was set in motion while I was living in Dubai, at a time when my closest girlfriends were having trouble finding the perfect wedding gown – a gown that represented the contemporary woman who was confident and worldly. Here, the brand was born but Bo & Luca was officially founded in 2012 when I relocated to Australia. I aimed to rewrite the rules of bridal design and create pieces that were not driven by trends nor tradition. Our gowns tell an epic story – the story of the wearer and her loves.

Answer: We offer our brides a refreshingly free-spirited approach to bridal wear. It’s so important to feel like yourself on your wedding day, and that’s why we design our pieces to feel sensual, elegant and freeing for your big day.

Question: Did you always know that you wanted to design Bridal couture?

Answer: I wouldn’t say that I always knew I wanted to design Bridal couture per se, however, growing up I always had an interest in tailoring and dressmaking as my grandmother was a renowned seamstress. She taught me the value of attention to detail, which I’ve meticulously carried through everything I do. It was my time spent in Dubai with a tailor and through searching for Wedding gowns for my girlfriends that really sparked my desire to design Bridal wear.


Question: What advice would you offer to a Bride who is just starting out on their search for the perfect Wedding gown?

Answer: It’s a real cliché, but when you know you’ve found the right gown, you know. I’d say go with your heart when it comes to selecting your Wedding gown. Block out any negative opinions from family and friends and wear the gown that makes you the happiest.

Question: Do you have a personal favourite style?

Answer: It’s difficult for me to pin point one style that’s my favourite, but if I had to I’d say one - the ROSA gown. I love the ethereal, fluidity of the gown with the subtle hints of skin at the waistline. It’s daring, yet demure, with a hint of the old world about it. Our new collection, which is debuting in October 2018, definitely has some gowns in it which are set to be my favourites.

Question: What would be the best part about what you do?

Answer: Gathering inspiration while travelling to create our new collections is definitely highlight of what I do. Seeing our brides in their gowns on their big day also brings me so much joy. You can really see in their eyes that they’re comfortable, feel beautiful and most importantly, are happy.
