THE "Like a Bird" COLLECTION 2022
 
View the Entire Collection

"The title 'Like a Bird' reflects the idea of freeing a bird in the glory of nature and existence. A quote from the Miley Syrus song 'Like a Bird', catching the wind' really stuck in my head about the power of nature and beings that exist in nature. The idea of a bird flying and letting the wind carry it along really inspired me to explore a more freeing way to design.

 

The starting point for this collection was the looseness of sketching on the model template, free and feathery movements. I had quite clear ideas of how another nature inspired collection would reflect that, for example 'Shadow' is a clear reflection of it's inspiration. The shadow of the trees and flowers on the concrete through the glaring sun and 'Breeze' the independency of flowers being caught and blown in the breeze.

 

Our aim is to continuously create high end luxurious, intricately made and ethically aware fashion bridal wear. We are unique, contemporary yet utterly romantic, whimsical with subtle theatrical drama...…

Our USP is the flair for using textures upon textures, innovative design but still extremely elegant. We strive to create the perfect flattering silhouette with a touch of avant garden drama to reflect the personality of the dress...

Still

Still is a contemporary gown offering some still and calm in a statement filled collection, a beautifully innocent gown with a modern edge. It is graceful with a prominent and unique flower adornments mirrored on the oversized Peter Pan collar. This gown is elegant in a subtle straight silhouette, made of vegan recycled silk and heavilly embellished motifs on the collar. There is an optional pearl trim for the waist tie which can enhance the waist over the bust and  waist to hip darts on the front and back of the gown. The gown is hand finished with delicate mini pearls on the collar edge and pearl buttons in a sequence down the centre back. A modest yet neat train gives the back a statement detail. Custom orders are available if there are any amendments requests in the design.

The Like a Bird Collection price range is from £2,340 to £3,300, slips start from £935 and the separates from £1,000. The gowns are made to measure for each individual order, we pride ourselves on fit and not working to a standard size...

Breeze

Breeze features intricate polka dots on a tulle base with a centre pearl and a series of mini beads around the pearl. These details cover the whole gown with more defined details on the bodice and upper skirt. These defined details are laser cut flowers in a variety of styles and sizes - hand placed and individually sewn with the centre pearl and bead detail. Breeze is inspired by the freeing movement of the flowers in the breeze on a summers day. The laser cut flowers have their own movement and some independence from the gown and are only fastened at the centre. Their petals loose and carved free to move when worn. The details adorn the back in a mirrored effect and the cuff of the sleeve. The waist is pulled in with a heavy embroidered trim with sequins and mini beads and organza ribbon sewn on the edge to tie into a bow at the centre back. Adorned with a series of pearl buttons a signature Amy Mair Couture featured on our gowns. The overlay is worn over a satin back crepe slip, cut on the bias with a cowl draped neckline and back detail.

The base is a silky satin full skirt layer with a tulle overlay and the embroidery at the surface.

Our Serene gown is a timeless, demure, understated and an elegant gown one of our more classic pieces with elegance and limited contemporary appeal. The gown is corseted with encased bust cups, the bodice emphasises a small waist with a curved shape over the bust. It's neckline is romantic with a curve finished with scalloping edge. The lace is extremely luxe from our handmade supplier in Madrid. A beautiful lace with dainty beads and sequins, iridescent and with a silver thread to bring our various tones in. The sleeves are a slight contrast, con-formative in shape by adding some modern approach, the fabric of the sleeves are also used in a gathered layered skirt. The waist is finished with a pearl trim which is also used on the sleeves.As with many of our gowns the fastenings are pearl buttons with a satin button loop strong enough to hold the corset top

Shadow

Shadow is our most dramatic piece of the collection, largely due to the shadow like reflecting flower and leaf print a very bold embroidery. With depth and texture featuring beads and sequins over the embroidery details. The flower print trails diagonally over the body and exposes the upper left shoulder with a net base. There are extra layers of beadwork in a detailed bead, pearl and sequin prints these have been intricately sewn over the embroidery flowers. The embroidery covers the whole overlay with a dramatic detailing at the back with the embroidery heavy on the one side. Interestingly this gown is not symmetrical in detail it is unqiue in its detailing. It features a mini train with our statement pearl buttons as a fastening.
