Ellen Wise Couture Bridal: Allegra
Shop Allegra by Ellen Wise
First of all, it’s total madness! Ellen covered the Allegra dress with champagne flowers from head to toe and we are here for that! This one-of-a-kind dress is enough to show what attracted fashion experts to Ellen’s unique style and undisputed talent in the first place. Let’s dig deeper into the story of how it came into fashion:
With an eye for design and a passion for craftsmanship, Ellen began designing her own garments as a creative outlet and wearing them at professional events. During an outing in particular, the jacket Ellen was wearing caught the attention of a boutique store owner while browsing the store. The shopkeeper was delighted with its design and details and asked if he could wear the jacket in his shop. This encounter inspired the transformation of a lifelong passion into a business venture and Ellen Wise Couture was born.

The virtual experience with Ellen Wise Couture Bridal
For this new bridal collection from Ellen Wise Couture, Ellen has thought of everything – including how to make shopping for dresses for brides from the Covid era a beautiful and unforgettable experience:
Ellen Wise Couture offers a designer direct experience for brides looking for a one-of-a-kind haute couture dress in just two months. After an initial virtual consultation, Ellen provides personalized sketches and fabric samples before creating the bespoke design as a toile (a muslin prototype) and sending it to the customer for an initial adjustment and further virtual consultation. Ellen and her team then work to engineer and refine the final garment with any adjustments required before sending it to the bride for final adjustment and review. This final virtual meeting ensures that the final refinements can be handled perfectly.
