We chat to Elbeth Gillis
“Some may think that my life revolves around fashion, but I have other interests too. I absolutely love to read. Although, come to think of it, I do read a lot of biographies on fashion designers, and I have a huge collection of books on the history of fashion… so on second thought, my life is surrounded by all things fashion!
I’m a bit of a homebody. Being in my house with my husband and cats, baking or doing DIY, is how I like to spend my free time. We watch a lot of films, my favourite being The Age Of Innocence – the beautiful costumes and cinematography captivate me every time. If I could choose a film star to wear my gowns, it’d be the beautiful Keira Knightley. She bridges that gap between old-world charm and modern glamour. I love every part of my job, down to naming the gowns. I look at a dress and then pair it with whoever it reminds me of, often a character from a book or movie, a client or someone I know. It’s such a lovely practice. This last year has seen a growing move away from very traditionally designed gowns to ones that take their inspiration from high fashion. Brides are realising that their wedding is an opportunity to make a statement. I love the excitement of the bridal fashion world!
