Parsons Graduate, Elizabeth Fillmore, debuted her bridal collection in 1999 at the urging of the fashion director at Saks Fifth Avenue to cater to a glamorous, modern bride. It was a natural extension of her eveningwear line and is characterised by fluid gowns with feminine and romantic details.
As Elizabeth says, “I love the ‘magical’ aspect of a wedding gown, and the personal choice each bride makes…I design for the ‘Modern Romantic’…Individuality is so important to me and the look of each collection.”
The designs are a beautiful balance of Sophistication, Femininity, and a touch of the ‘Bohemian’…there is an overall lightness to the designs coupled with the personal touch of hand done accents on each dress – the flowers, trim or twist of a drape – that keeps the collection so special.
The Collection encompasses everything from slender bias cuts with graceful draping accents, chic fitted hourglass gowns, to ethereal empire silhouettes…The fabrics are extremely important to the look of the collection – Elizabeth uses all silk fabrics and linings, relying on mainly French and Italian couture fabrics that offer an added originality and richness to the designs.
“My bride has an independent vision – and I hope to fill that vision for her through my designs…”
