We want to introduce a new series featuring and focusing on our amazing designers! Each week we will introduce you to one of the lovely designers we carry in the shop and share their collections with you, so you can become more familiar with the styles we carry! This week, get to know Bo & Luca!

"The Bo & Luca story is one of art and beauty, of exoticism and culture; one of artisan skill and ancient craftsmanship, steeped in the magical world of couture...

Rewriting the rules of bridal design and not driven by either trends or tradition, these are the gowns that tell an epic story – the story of the wearer and her loves. Speaking to her traversing ways, to her passion for adventure, to her desire to take the road less travelled, to her liberation to dress for herself and her story. Fiercely independent with a soulful allure, her style is as innate as her story unique. Her days are spent wandering and her euphoric nights dreaming. Wherever she is, she is going her own way.

Woven into the fabric of each piece is the magic of traditional artisan techniques and craftsman skills. Designed and hand cut in Australia by designer Shannon Pittman, couture-like pieces are hand beaded at an Atelier in India, where each bead is hand placed on the finest silk by local master craftsman over a three month process. The dying art of tambour, traditional artisans skills and textile traditions protected and honoured, creating the label’s signature luxurious aesthetic."

MAE GOWN – The MAE wedding gown is an iconic piece from our new TEMPLE collection. A Bo & Luca team favourite, the MAE gown has been crafted from the finest crêpe silk, which has been hand-dyed in a loose leaf white tea to lend the fabric its creamy hue. The cuffs of this gown have been delicately hand-beaded, using champagne gold and cognac-coloured stones and beads. The gown has a low-V front and back, with the front waist knotting at the waistband, while the skirt is a semi-fit and flare with a front split.

"With the free-spirited, daringly different bride instinctually at the forefront of her design vision, each piece is unexpected, unique, unimaginably beautiful and unlike anything remotely bridal – speaking instead to the wearer and her loves.

From here Shannon travels to India to bring the collection to life. Spending months sourcing luxurious fabrics and the finest silks from the local silk mills and overseeing the intricate beadwork and embellishment by local master craftsman, that come together to create the breathtaking finishes and opulent fabrics, synonymous with a Bo & Luca gown."
