➳ DECADENT DAYDREAMS WEDDING GOWNS | CALÉCHE BRIDAL INTERVIEW {ADELAIDE}

BRIDAL COUTURE NORWOOD SOUTH AUSTRALIA WEDDING DRESS DESIGNER

"I feel I couldn’t create anything but Wedding dresses as I have been immersed in this beautiful industry for over 20 years." Liz - Calèche Bridal

➳ Take us all back to the beginning of it for you - How and when was CALÈCHE born? Calèche began in 1973 in Adelaide in humble beginnings, Colette travelled across Australia promoting their range of daywear and evening wear. Calèche as a Bridal label was born from a request to make a Bridal gown and the rest is history. Eventually, Calèche was stocked in stores across Australia, as well as in boutiques in France and Italy.

Calèche is now a second generation business continued on by sons Eric and Herve, and with designer Elizabeth Foubert carrying on the tradition of European style designs.

Today, Caleche gowns are stocked in selected boutiques across Australia and New Zealand.

➳ What can CALÈCHE offer a Bride to-be for their Wedding day? At Calèche we understand that every Bride is different, and that is why we customise our gowns to suit each Bride.

We have a large range of different styles for brides to choose from in store. However as all our gowns are hand crafted by our talented team of seamstresses in our Norwood workroom, we also offer the ability to work with our Brides to create a new custom design or personalize an existing style to suit them.

➳ Did you always know that you wanted to design Bridal couture? I started my career designing in London for high street fashion labels, H&M and Topshop, after meeting my husband (Colette’s son) it was a natural progression to design Bridal gowns and so I entered the family business. Now I feel I couldn’t create anything but Wedding dresses as I have been immersed in this beautiful industry for over 20 years.

➳ What advice would you offer to a Bride that is just starting out on their search for the perfect Wedding dress? To keep their mind open! Many brides can be apprehensive to try on new and different styles, preferring to stick with what they know. However, I certainly believe there is absolutely no harm in exploring the different styles on offer to Brides today. In fact, very often I see Brides find that their dream gown is one they would not have initially expected.

Of course, once you’ve explored all the options, go with the gown that makes you feel the happiest!

➳ Do you have a personal favourite style? My favourite dress changes with each collection. My style is a bit more understated with classic clean lines and beautiful embellishments. For me it’s all about the bride, we make beautiful gowns that make the bride shine.

➳ Please tell us about the best part about what you do: The privilege of creating a gown for a brides perfect day is always a great pleasure. Creating a dress that someone feels their very best in is the most important part of what we do and I always ensure we have covered every angle, every detail and every concern that a Bride may have.

To see a Bride at her final fitting and the excitement and tears of joy always make everything we do worthwhile.
