To translate the excitement of marrying her soul mate, emanating their story in a single look is perhaps the most daunting task for a bride. She is authentic and proud to say she’s not perfect – because who is? She’s perfectly imperfect and she’s in love, celebrating the next chapter with her significant other. Her legacy is a modern romance that can be told with just one glance. It is not bounded by bridal traditions, allowing brides to create and shape pieces together- a chance to reflect her inner individuality. It is honest, unique and exclusive.
Cathleen Jia is intuitively guided by the way fabrics naturally fall, highlighting your body at its most beautiful. The organic approach to design is raw, reconstructed and unfiltered, encapsulating the authenticity in the wearer. The belief that drama does not need to be loud is entrenched within the brand. With a keen eye for subtle details and effortless elegance, the pieces are wearable beyond the big day and can become a cherished heirloom that stays forever.
With each piece handmade in house, the Melbourne bridal loft is the soul where the design philosophy and conscious creation techniques are woven within. The devotion to eliminate wastage by hand cutting fluid silks and meticulous detail application breathes life and romance into your modern day bridal look.
The designs have travelled all over the world and been worn and loved by brides in traditional castle weddings in the UK, picturise coastal towns of Italy, glistening beaches of Mexico and vibrant cities of Asia. To try on the collections and become a #cjbride, click here to see our stockist page.
