Since our very first trip to New York Bridal Fashion Week, we’ve been smitten kittens with the work of local wonder woman Alexandra Grecco. This talented designer does it all, whimsical and romantic, tailored and modern – whatever the bridal style you’re after she’s literally and metaphorically got you covered!

Finding inspiration everywhere from the intricacies of architecture in the historic French Quarter, to the soft, pastel hollyhocks of Il de Ré, Alexandra’s designs are continually evolving. For her latest collection The Magic Hour, Alexandra tells us of her Wilder gown “I was inspired by silhouettes & details that could be found in a 1920’s circus. Wilder has floral elements hand-embroidered on illusion tulle that are made to look like tattoos.”

After being out of reach to Australian brides for far too long we’re pleased to report Alexandra has found not one but two homes here in Australia. South Australian brides-to-be will find her stunning creations on the racks of The Bride Lab in Adelaide (click here to make your appointment today. Sydney brides-to-be best flock to Hope X Page on the Southern Beaches for their Grecco fix (appointments can be made online here).
