Nature is embedded into Hermione de Paula’s rich heritage of craftsmanship and creating dresses sustainably is at the heart of her design philosophy. The ateliers ever evolving collection of core artworks and silhouettes are available in a custom made-to-order service for gowns, veils and accessories. Hermione de Paula’s custom service has been established to perfectly compliment the Bespoke and Couture creative dress odysseys the house is known for.

Timeless silhouettes are combined with Hermione’s favourite embroideries to create a uniquely personal collection of artworks from her romantic archive. Each gown and veil are individually crafted and hand made-to-order by the same team who create HdeP bespoke pieces but designed for brides who for whatever reason, cannot commit to the immersive bespoke & couture journeys. Hermione feels passionate about offering a selection of her favourite designs in this custom collection as a more accessible approach to the design houses bridal-art experience.

Hermione de Paula has worked closely over the past decade to align her botanical roots to shape a new way of embroidery and approach to bridal design. Each custom gown starts from hand sketching and painting within her London Atelier, which in turn evolves into embroideries where the artwork is painstakingly drawn into each pattern piece. This artwork is then hand embroidered by HdeP’s team of artisans, accumulating hundreds of hours of development and craft into each and every dress, that mirrors its bride - a one off which cannot be replicated.
