The Catherine Deane bridal collection is an exquisite adaptation of time-honoured techniques combined with contemporary design elements. We are passionate about taking something from the past and making it relevant to today whilst appreciating its original beauty.
Initially taking inspiration from vintage textiles, French lace and long-forgotten craft, we explored the natural world which provides an endless source of influential ideas. From the delicate beaded backs, inspired by dew drops on spider’s webs to the three dimensional embroidered flowers, our bridal collection is awash with nature’s jewels.
Born in Ireland, raised in South Africa and inspired by living in London and Hong Kong; Catherine’s designs take cultural references from her nomadic lifestyle and her passion for long forgotten craft techniques and femininity. Traditional techniques with a modernist twist of simplicity form the foundation of Catherine’s work and are fuelled by the continual search for new methods from around the world. Juxtaposition plays an important part in the aesthetic of Catherine’s designs. Between textile and craft, strength and fragility and old meets new there is a consistent balance drawn in all that she creates; every Yin has a Yang.
All of these elements combine to create one of a kind, wearable pieces that enrich women with a sense of femininity, beauty, and uniqueness.
