Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver is pleased to announce that British designer Charlie Brear will soon be available to Colorado brides! Named by Women's Wear Daily as "One to Watch" at London Fashion Week, Charlie Brear is a stylist-turned-designer who dresses the chicest London girls - and more recently, women as far away as Japan, New Zealand, and now the United States - with her ready-to-wear line and her bridal collection. Little White Dress is among the very first boutiques in the United States to carry Charlie Brear's exclusive designs.
Perfect for brides who want a low-maintenance look on their wedding day, but who won't compromise on style and quality, we knew after seeing the collection that Colorado brides would be enamored of these gorgeous gowns. Made of the finest sandwashed silks and delicate laces, Charlie Brear's gowns are both distinctive and versatile. The collection includes beaded lace sleeves, lace shrugs, head pieces and over skirts, allowing brides greater customization to create their own bespoke gown.
We loved meeting Charlie and her team at New York Bridal Fashion Week! They are stylish, sweet, and smart - and their British accents are just as charming as the gowns! Get to know our new designer and her bridal gowns by taking a peek at our exclusive viewing of the collection.

Get to Know British Bridal Designer Charlie Brear and Her Fashion-Forward Collection
Brides: Is this the first time you are showing in New York?
Charlie Brear: Yes! We decided to come because we've had more inquiries from U.S. brides this year than ever before.
Brides: How long have you been in the biz?
CB: I created the Vintage Wedding Dress Company in 2005. This year we're re-branding it as Charlie Brear.
Brides: Describe your bride.
CB: She knows her own mind and style. Kay Barron, the fashion features director of Net-A-Porter, said it best: "both directional and instinctively feminine."
Brides: What makes your collection unique?
CB: We have everything a bride needs to transform her dress, from under- and over-skirts to tailored jackets, belts, and silk sashes. And all Charlie Brear gowns are designed and produced in the U.K.
Brides: What celebrity would you love to dress for her wedding?
Wondering what we mean when we say that these gowns are distinctive yet versatile? The next photos show how one silk low-back gown can be styled three unique ways by adding a delicate back panel and sleeves of different lengths. Amazing, right?!
All of the Charlie Brear gowns can easily be styled in a variety of ways so brides can individualize their own wedding day look with stylish accessories like brooches, sashes, and even the softest white leather tie belt.
How fun are these next two looks? An off-the-shoulder fully-fringed gown that moves like a dream, and the most luxurious feather jacket over a sweet lace gown? YES, please!
