Today, we now have the enormous pleasure of supporting an incredible, and fantastically talented, designer, who truly puts environmental surroundings at the heart of all things. Let me expose you to the wonderful and unique and natural collection that provides a bold new lease of life to vintage and princess wedding dresses.

Mia Sylvia is, basically, for that eco-conscious bride. If you've despaired concerning the environmental damage of fast fashion or if you like the thought of wedding gowns being given another chance, Mia's incredible work can make your heart sing.

With experience in textiles as a committed environmental activist, Mia Sylvia is a new and genuine eco-alternative for brides searching for something a little different. Let me hand you to Mia herself to inform us more.

"My designs are manufactured from vintage and second-hand dresses that I source after which re-purpose. I use natural dyes and also the bespoke colors and patterns that I create inside the fabrics and garments all originate from natural and hand-foraged pigments. Some of the ingredients I use to produce colors are plants, flowers, wood as well as food waste and scrap metals."

"These dresses certainly are a celebration of the things natural and make up a closed-loop system through re-use and regeneration. Each dress is handpicked and it is then re-designed within the studio. Gowns are hand-dyed in small, sustainable batches by ingredients for example avocado skins, turmeric, onion skins, rose petals, dried hibiscus, and plant roots."

Mia's hands-on approach is completely key here, with creating the shades and designs but additionally in making certain the dress itself is taken care of and re-purposed in a manner that works not just for you but also for that dress itself. Go

"Because each garment is vintage or pre-loved, I always think about the fabric first. Understanding the fabric is vital to the process and also the fabrics themselves vary from heavy silks to lightweight organzas."

The designs that Mia creates wonderfully echo the natural process that's created them. The strong 70s flower power design cues include embellishments for example frilled cuffs and necklines softened with flowers. Mia's hand-embroidered flowers will also be a joy to behold and every one of the dresses possess a strong, bold vibe that sits against very elegant femininity.

"I study the word what and symbolism of flowers and like to hide romantic messages inside the garments. The colors themselves will also be inspired through the best pre-Raphaelite paintings and I wanted the garments to almost seem like still-life paintings."

Each bit is a true 'one-off' and Mia may bring her flair for color and design with other pieces for the wedding too. She's pleased to color or dye shirts for grooms and groomsmen as well as bridesmaid dresses too to ensure that everyone can wear something individual and eco-conscious around the big day.

"I love the thought of the garments as being a blank canvas for color as well as for embellishments so I'm always available to clients to share their ideas and preferences. The pieces themselves tell a tale and if I can't dye a particular fabric as many will not allow natural dye, I can stitch onto these garments instead. I'm lucky enough to get work with uniquely wonderful clients – not just do they care regarding their environment, additionally they look for pieces that nobody has seen before and I such as this sense of magic that people create together."

I am entranced by these dresses. There's a powerful retro vibe that appeals but there's also the strong sense that each bit is a new undertake a classic. I love the shades and color combinations, so brave and thus bold. The floral embroidery around the bodices, the splashes of color, the watercolor-inspired shades on skirts, and, first and foremost, the initial nature of every piece and also the eco message that accompanies it is just exceptional.

"There's you don't need to be afraid of color and don't forget that this is the wedding day if you want to push the boundaries, then do!"

My mum also worked in bridal throughout my degree, I would help her with sample sales and become familiar with dealing with brides. I would say the bridal bug got me once I discovered lace. I love laborious handwork, texture, and dissecting fabrics with bridal you can explore and test out beautiful items to create something individual and unique. Go

What would you love most about being employed in the bridal fashion world?

It wasn't only the beautiful dresses or even the glamour that got me inspired, but the feeling if you notice that person wearing their perfect dress, looking just how they imagined. That is what keeps me going and dealing so hard, diving into the bride's mind and attempting to capture just how the to envision is to appear and bringing that alive. Sometimes it’s not the dress they can see, only the overall mood or essence of fashion they wish to portray, seeing their face if you have brought it all alive is quite special. Bespoke is my passion.

What would you think makes your brand so attractive to brides?

That each dress is bespoke and completely individual for them. From creating their very own fabric to creating, everything is unique and individual to every client.

Where would you start with each new collection – are you able to talk to us using your process?

The fabric. I always begin with the fabric or even the texture also it grows after that. There is a silhouette that I prefer to keep as under laying theme however building onto that to produce something unique. The team and I can create different samples and prototypes and critique them together, developing together once we go.

Would you say your designs are for any variety of body shapes?

Being predominantly bespoke I have been employed by everyone shape available and I feel it's important to realize that everybody isn’t a size six and six-foot-tall.

Can you share a little about your work/creative space around?

Over yesteryear year we have attempted to bring some life towards the studio. I love the area to seem like a work room and like each bride to determine where the dresses are made and also the girls at the office when they come to every appointment. The fitting room has enormous mirrors and rails and rails of huge fabric samples, you can hear the humming from the machines and girls employed in the other rooms the area feels alive.

This particular couple, Katie and Joseph, tied the knot on 7th September 2019 coupled with a wedding that intertwined aspects of tradition the couple appreciated for its symbolism, with a far more modern, creative wedding element. For example, the pair had two ceremonies around the same day, one of these incorporating seven blessings, inspiring the bride-to-be's Jewish heritage.

Katie wore the ball gown wedding dress, which she designed herself together with designer Dana. Just look at that beautiful detail!

"Although I hadn't spent enough time thinking about what I do on my big day, I didn't wish to wear a whole outfit that may never be worn again. And I realized I wanted it to possess some color too."

The beautiful bouquet and floral decor are intended by Katie's mother and cousin, who sourced the blooms via.

"They were the brains behind all of the decorations. My mother advised us on seasonal flowers and together we find the colors we most preferred. They both did an extraordinary job, the whole marquee looked wonderful and couldn't happen to be more perfect. They also made my bouquet and also the buttonhole flowers."

The couple hired a photographer to document their beautiful day.

"Joseph and I happen to be together since we met during our final year at University (in 2014). Joseph proposed in February 2019 by reading Katie a poem he'd written, whilst I was sitting on Tempelhof (a classic airport, now a park) in Berlin, where we live. We got married seven months later." Go

"Joseph was accompanied, in the woodshed within the garden, towards the ceremony within the marquee by his family, arm-in-arm together with his parents and the four siblings following behind."

"Katie then emerged on the other side of the garden together with her family, arm-in-arm together with her parents, and three siblings following behind. The sound of 'Unconditional' by Nick Mulvey was playing as the pair arrived at their ceremony."

After their first ceremony, the pair made their way, in rather unique transport, to their second ceremony location.

The bride's mother has by all accounts an incredible eye for decor and detail and assisted the pair in decorating the marquee.

"My cousin's beautiful handmade bunting (used first at her daughter's wedding in 2016) and also the natural surrounding from Thomas's garden, including some flower beds planted especially for that occasion by Joseph's mum. We borrowed candle holders and vases from family and friends, as I was to re-use where possible."

The couple was hired to feed their guests, by supplying drinks.

"Our cake was made by – Izzy creates the most amazing cakes which taste delicious. She designed a carrot cake, lemon, and blueberry cake along with a victoria sponge. It was three tiers. She is located in London."

"I am so lucky to possess so many good friends, but none of whom I desired to dress up in matching clothing. Friends played a role in the day in lots of other ways. I also wouldn't know how to start if I had needed to choose between them to become my bridesmaids!"

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"Make it personal. Think about why it is you are becoming married and be sure that that's front and center. If you can, make your ceremony! For us, it had been not about celebrating the fact that people had reached a stage within our relationship that people were prepared to make this commitment, instead, it had been about recognizing the gravity of the commitment I was making, asking us and friends gathered there on your day to be our witnesses to that particular promise and celebrating the beginning of our way of life as a husband and wife."
