Designer Adele Wechsler, a South Africa native and current Toronto resident, doesn’t see green weddings as merely a passing trend, but “as more of a movement that’s here to stay.” Adele’s newest Eco-Couture Collection transcends preconceived notions of eco bridal wear by seamlessly blending high fashion luxury with organic fabric and fair-trade labor.
The stunning gowns — vibrant proof that eco-consciousness and couture aren’t mutually exclusive — are lovingly crafted in Canada using the following:
-certified organic hemp and silk blends
-remnant lace and fabrics
-many hand-cut, hand-sown details
-fair trade labor
“I want to reach out to women in a different way,” says Adele. The Eco-Couture Collection is designed “for the bride who cares about the world in which she lives.”
Adele’s previous collections include Hello Africa, a gorgeous line featuring the intricate hand-beading of Zulu artisans. Adele’s unique bridal designs are internationally known and have the irresistible appeal of drawing women closer together. “Through fashion we have transformed our worlds and journeyed into others and others have, similarly, journeyed into ours.”
Summer promotions and discounts are available.
