Charlie Brear had been a stylist for 10 years when she was required to source a plethora of vintage wedding dresses for a commercial shoot. On selling the dresses afterwards, she was surprised at how popular they were. Spurred on by the growing interest in these original vintage pieces, Brear designed a capsule collection of made to order gowns, offering a contemporary take on vintage glamour. Its success in house led to the first full collection selling to market in 2011.
Brear next produced Additions, a collection of unique styling pieces to complement the made to order line. Starting with a simple crepe, satin or chiffon dress and layering everything from sequined overdresses and tiered skirts to hand beaded pieces, belts, sashes and sleeves, a bespoke look can be effortlessly customized to create a brides own perfect look.
Brear was shortlisted for SS14 at London Fashion Week as “one to watch” by WWD.
Charlie Brear collections of Ready-to-wear, Bridal and Additions are designed and produced entirely in the UK, using a diverse range of hand selected fabrics and trims.
