Madeline Gardner Signature in Focus

Morilee designer Madeline Gardner has released a namesake collection showcasing couture looks inspired by the spirit of New York City.

Madeline, who is using lockdown well putting lots of time and effort into sketching and coming up with new ideas described the collection as: “This romantic collection really speaks luxury with beautiful laces, extra-long trains, highly detailed beading and lots of layers. Look out for sheer sides and bodices, plunging necklines and lots of florals.”

Let’s have a look at some of her favourite looks which are available in UK wedding boutiques now…

This absolutely showstopping gown is all about those bishop style sleeves! A real eyecatcher, and oh so chic! Style number 1047, named Avonlea features frosted, medallion style and geometric embroidery in a classic sweetheart neckline fit and flare style. The back of the bodice is sheer with highly detailed lace and covered wedding buttons. Avonlea is available in warm hues of ivory/honey and ivory/sand/honey. The gown is also shipped with beaded spaghetti straps for a change of look as you move onto your reception party and dance the evening away!

We are in love with this classic Venice lace gown with demure long sleeves. It is available both with and without bodice lining to suit your own personal style and is shown here without. We just love the beautiful detail in the lace! We recommend this dress is worn with minimal jewellery so not to overcomplicate it – our stylist recommends some simple drop earrings and nothing else is needed. Called Alexandria, style number 1046, the dress is available in ivory or a warm mix of ivory, sand and honey – which is a new mix for this season.

For a young, fun and ever so modern look we present you with Amabelle, style number 1043. This slim tulle lace gown features a romantic sweetheart neckline on a sheer rose embroidered bodice, full sparkle tulle skirt, highly detailed sparkle bead straps and a glamourous over skirt. This is a great dress to pick if you you’re your jewellery as it would work well with lots of added sparkle! Photographed here in ivory/sand/honey, it is also available in ivory/honey.

If a full ball gown is more your style, look no further than Angelina, style 1049. A gown fit for a modern-day princess with plenty of sparkle and sophistication. It has  all-over pearl, crystal and sequin beaded tulle over delicate sparkle tulle. We love the on-trend plunging neckline and full sheer sleeves – a perfect look for a winter wonderland wedding. Available in ivory/champagne/honey as pictured or ivory/honey.
