Eliza Jane Howell – Seriously Swoon-worthy Vintage Inspired Wedding Dresses

If you love all things Art Deco and vintage-inspired, you are going to fall head over heels for London bridal design house Eliza Jane Howell. Created by renowned knitwear designer Gill Harvey (and named after her grandmother) Eliza Jane Howell is a collection of exquisite Old World designs destined for modern brides with a love of glitz and glamour in a timeless form.

Each of the gowns from collections like Legend, Debutante and the most recent Grand Opera hark back to the decadent glamour of America’s Roaring 20s where full beaded sheaths and elegant, long-lined bias cut gowns oozed seduction and sophistication. Our favourite aspect of the catalogue? The sheer wearability of each one of these unique and effortlessly alluring creations. Stunning silhouettes with cinched in waists and ruched bustiers create, flatter and enhance an hourglass figure, while slinky A-lines – with the help of some perfectly applied, luxurious embellishments – drape over the body, hugging it in all the right places.

We are so crazy about this collection in fact that it was far too hard to edit down! From the debut ‘Eliza’ dress – with its soft chiffon panels, flattering V-neckline and gathered waist and shimmering sequin and floral applique embellishments, to the enchanting ‘Elsa’ with its capelet-like overlay top, Art Deco patterned beadwork and glamorous fit-and-flare train, every gown ticks all the boxes of an iconic, wearable wedding dress.
