Lela Rose marries refined elegance with modern whimsy through beautiful fabrics and hand-finished details. She tells us about her love for wedding dresses and inspiration.
Tell us about your design philosophy and inspiration.
I base my designs on the idea that every woman wants to look great and feel great without a lot of fuss. Her pieces should take her from day to night with the luxury of comfort and quality. I find inspiration from so many areas. and New York City (where I live) is a large part of that. I bike everywhere, and am always seeing something new and interesting, whether it’s art, architecture or people.
