Modern Debutante by Hera Couture

Celebrating the wisdom of femininity, the Modern Debutante collection pays homage to Hera Couture’s past brides – because every woman they have worked with, they’ve learnt from.

In designing this anthology, Hera has gone back through time and remembered all the hope and wonder their brides have expressed. The result is a collection that represents and reflects a woman’s desire to not only feel beautiful but to feel authentically themselves.

“I’ve strived to design for the international bride, imagining all the different types of women I’ve
encountered over the years. I want to embody their personalities and style as much as possible and I want to create designs that stand out from the crowd while empowering women to choose a piece that they love and hold dear to their hearts. I want brides to choose a design which is a little out of the ordinary and absolutely, one hundred per cent personal.” – Katie Yeung Hera Couture Founder and Lead Designer.

From slinky to classic, soft to structured, layered to minimal, the gowns are inspired by the passing seasons, each with their own idiosyncrasies, strengths, and fragility. Katie expertly constructs and drapes each gown, capturing the feeling of a misty spring day or glinting snow, and while the range embraces traditional elements, it pushes the boundaries of bridal fabrics to incorporate the avant-garde. Fully beaded pearl tulle, micro tucked pleated satin, buttery crushed satin and three-dimensional textured jacquard are textural and sumptuous, yet comfortable and lightweight to wear.

The Modern Debutante Collection is for brides who acknowledge the wisdom of the past, but head into the future with courage, strength and vulnerability. Wild or calm, ethereal or minimal, a Hera gown is true to nature, fluid in her adaptability and confidence, and ready to take on the world. The range is available in sizes UK0 to UK36.
