WED x Stephen Walters

"Follow resident artists Amy Trinh & Evan Phillips as they visit the British heritage mill, Stephen Walters, to meet with the team and choose some of their exceptional deadstock fabrics to repurpose as alternative bridalwear. Family owned since 1720, Stephen Walters specialises in the Jacquard weaving of innovative fabrics, bespoke woven from noble fibres including silk, cashmere and linen and has been collaborating with Sarabande artists WED and Berke Yazicioglu to give these incredible fabrics a new lease of life.

WED is a Bridal and Eveningwear brand that draws inspiration from the spirit of surrealism and imaginative drape of early couture to subvert elements of Ready-to-wear practicality in order to challenge the notion that a Bridal dress is a one-day occasion piece. Recent press on WED includes Vogue and Business of Fashion and a custom gown was worn by Celeste for her performance at the Brit Awards 2020."
