Here at the L J Group we have our very own design team, working year-round to bring you fabulous, commercial gowns, veils and accessories.
Our passion for fashion knows no limits, but that passion is tailored to ensure we deliver collections that suit real women, and their fabulous figures.
We start with giant inspiration boards which have anything and everything on that spark joy to us as individuals. We then pick our favourite images to concentrate on and the fabric search starts.
Once our fabric samples arrive then the fun really begins. We take each sample and discuss how we can use it. Some of our favourite ones may be used as over skirts as well as veils!
We keep our waste to an absolute minimum, so everything is used!
Once our fabric selections have been made its then over to the sketches.
We have books full of past sketches / designs and we spend time looking at those before we start on new ones. We’ve normally got a head full of ideas once the materials have been chosen so this is always the really exciting part!
Each design is well thought out and each team members' opinion matters when it comes to our gowns.
It’s a lengthy process which sees lots changes as we develop and improve the patterns. Once a pattern is confirmed, we head into the production process.
Further changes may be made as we start to see our visions coming to life and at the end of this wonderful, often long, creative process we end up with our final collection!
We take great pride in the quality of our dresses and believe our brides will love every inch of their British designed gown!
