Featured Supplier: Joanne Fleming Design – Stunning evening and Bridal wear

Today I am featuring the rather amazing Joanne Fleming Design as my featured supplier. I came across Joanne through Rock and Roll Bride  and also through twitter. Her work is pure genius, so much so that I just had to share it with you.
Joanne works from a studio in Brighton and creates the most stunning evening, bridal and couture designs but at a price that won’t break the bank.  I asked Joanne to send me a few pictures for this piece and she sent me loads……It was SO hard to pick from them as all her dresses are beautiful I wanted to Post all of them. So I have picked out a good selection that shows of her style and show you how flexible she can be.

So a bit more information about Joanne:
Originally from Bath, Somerset, Joanne has been resident in Brighton for over 20 years, all of which have been spent working in the fashion industry. From stints sample-making for such luminaries as Giles Deacon and Luella Bartley, to working as a freelance designer/maker for Madame Tussauds exhibits around the world (dressing figures such as Scarlett O’Hara for Hollywood, and Jackie Kennedy for Washington), Joanne gained a wealth of experience that finally led to the setting up of her own Brighton studio in 2005.

Recently relocated to new premises opposite Brighton’s extravagant Royal Pavilion, the studio is crammed with sample dresses in jewel-bright silks and palest feather-trimmed velvets. These designs can be made-to-order in a wide palette of shades, or Joanne can create a completely bespoke design in collaboration with her client.
Specialising in evening and bridal wear, the Joanne Fleming Design label has become known for luxurious styles with a vintage reference. From art-deco bias-cut slithers of silk satin, to crisply structured figure-enhancing designs in translucent silk organza, each gown is constructed to flatter and enhance.

“She looked like the edition de luxeof a wicked French novel “ wrote Oscar Wilde, and it is this vision of the finished effect that inspires Joanne when designing……
The latest collection is named “The Beautiful and the Damned”, after the iconic novel by F Scott Fitzgerald, and uses fluid silk charmeuse and chiffon to glamorous effect in its evocation of an era of sophisticated but doomed hedonism.

    Oh Jo is my fave designer! I am such a huge fan. I cannot rave enough about her! The green cherry blossom dress above makes me think of when I got engaged in Tokyo under the cherry blossoms. It’s so beautiful. xxx
