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 2021 “Desert Dreamers” Collection

The new 2021 collection draws inspiration from the book of the anthropologist Barbara Glowczeski about culture and rituals of the Australian indigenous inhabitants Warlpiri.
The “Desert Dreamers” collection encompasses the brand signature aesthetic with sleek silhouettes that pair perfectly with the Charlie Brear’s iconic pieces, alongside beautiful new styling additions.

Charlie’s contemporary style is highlighted in the new bias cut dresses which are equally as beautiful on their own as they are layered with the styling additions, which form an array of textiles and textures sculpting an individual  bridal look for every bride.
