Fashion design and fine arts trained, Lisa Gowing debuted her Couture bridal line in 1997. Her collection of exquisite high fashion designs in layered silks and exclusive French and Italian laces immediately changed the face of bridal design in Australia. Trained in the intricacies of Couture dressmaking from a retiring industry expert twenty one years ago, Lisa uses only the original Couture techniques mainly forgotten in today’s fashion. Working with beautiful, luxurious fabrics cut in elegant, feminine lines Lisa’s bridal gowns are recognised as the most elite in high-end bridal fashion. Each gown is hand made locally and constructed in layers of silk and exclusive trims including European laces and crystal or jewel embellishments.
In 2001, Lisa decided to take her Couture collection to New York, successfully showing for four seasons and stocking exclusive stores in New York, San Diego, Hong Kong and Singapore.
