Helen English has run a successful, high profile bridal salon in Sydney’s Paddington for the past 20 years. Helen’s background in fashion started earlier when she modelled in Europe for top designers such as Claude Montana, Gianni Versace and Krizia. It was during this time that her interest in rare fabrics and haute couture was piqued. Returning to Australia, Helen realised that there was a market for made to measure wedding gowns that were beautiful yet simple. Using her knowledge garnered from years in fashion both here and overseas, Helen created a range of dresses that were understated yet exquisite.
Today, Helen still creates dresses using the finest French and Italian laces and oversees the making of the dress from start to finish (very rare in today’s market.) Hand finishing, applique and beaded trims are a specialty and each dress is made on the premises. Her testimonials are proof of the service that Helen and her experienced staff provide. Finding the perfect wedding dress can be an ordeal. Helen’s approach is one of time and care.
