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, 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.

Charlie Brear collections are designed and produced entirely in the UK, using a diverse range of hand selected fabrics and trims.

The 2023 Collection

The new Collection includes all Charlie Brear’s signature and new seasonal styles. Perfectly cut silhouettes are complemented by bold design features. All styles balance femininity and simplicity to create an aesthetic that will appeal to the fashion conscious bride.

The 2023 Collection features dresses which are not only beautiful as stand alone bridal looks but they’re also the perfect base to layer the styling collection with.
The Styling Collection is a range of bridal separates and styling additions which can be added on top of dresses, giving every bride the opportunity to create her own individual look.

Starting with a simple crepe dress and layering everything from a sequinned overskirt and a lace sleeve, to washed silk sashes, a bespoke look can effortlessly be created and customised. All pieces allow endless possibilities to transform a look throughout the day and night.
