Interview With Elizabeth Fillmore

Copied

On a recent trip to Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay, we had the chance to sit down with designer Elizabeth Fillmore. She told us all about her romantic Spring 2015 collection and what she thinks brides should know before they go to a bridal boutique.

WedLuxe: What type of bride do you design for?
Elizabeth Fillmore: I like to say that the look is “soft, sophisticated, and feminine.” My bride isn’t looking for mom and dad’s approval. She is independent; more creative-minded and strong but still feminine.

WL: Where do you get inspiration?
EF: I’m inspired by everything from music to film to couture. I have a great respect for couture details, many of my appliqués are based on archival couture images.

I also take inspiration from the fabric, from the lace. I have an endless love affair with lace but I use lace that no one else has sampled. Recently, I used a lace with a subtle spiderweb and bouquet pattern.

WL: Is there a specific style you’re drawn to right now?
EF: I’m a slave to the bias cut. It gently flows over the body and flatters everyone. The cut is very languid and liquid. I trust my instinct when it comes to fabric; the Spring 2015 collection has two gowns (Monet, above left, and Degas, above lower right) with a floral tulle overlay for a whisper of colour.

WL: What are your tips for brides when they shop for a wedding gown?
EF: Do your research. Know who you are, really who you are. Don’t try to please mom or your best friend; make sure it is about you and your personality.

Keep the location of your wedding in mind and be educated. You’ll be able to ask for what you are looking for. It’s easier for the consultant if you say you’re having a beach wedding and want a lighter dress. They’ll know what to pull.

If you love Elizabeth’s gowns as much as we do, you can find them in Canada at Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay.
