Independent, ethical bridal brand Luna Bride has already graced the pages of The Kind Bride blog last spring with her romantic yet modern wedding gowns. We’re delighted to feature their newest designs, witnessing how the past few months were quite a productive time for Founder Keely Brightmore, who spent quarantine between her home and her Harrogate studio, focused on putting the final touches to her first ever bridesmaid collection, Hydrangeas.
True to Luna’s sustainable approach, Hydrangeas initial short run include three exquisite designs expands on the brand’s unique organic bridal gowns and has the same ethos of combining natural fabrics with beautiful design. The range completes a trio of true classics: a modern jumpsuit, a stylish wrap dress and a slinky bias-cut slip dress available in lilac and two shades of pink, which were inspired by stunning hydrangea blooms.
Each design is available in ten color ways and come in two of the world’s most sustainable fibers – linen and Tencel (hence vegan-friendly!) – providing a flattering fit for all shapes and sizes. Like all Luna products, the collection is made in England by local seamstresses. To increase the sustainability factor further, Luna encourage bridesmaids to keep the dresses to be worn again and again!
“It has taken a year to work out the perfect ways to create dresses that use high quality production whilst keeping affordability” explains Keely. “In a market where many people don’t realize that popular bridesmaid brands continue to use polyester and manufacture in China, this eco-conscious collection is something totally different!”
