Grace Loves Lace launches first eco wedding dress
03 Aug 2021
A first for the Australian bridal brand, Grace Loves Lace launches its debut eco wedding dress
The first of its kind for bridal, 'Lumi' by Grace Loves Lace is sustainably and ethically handcrafted in the brand’s Australian studio. Featuring fabrics and trims expertly engineered and developed over a two-year period, the gown’s construction is eco-friendly, with pieces verified by the Global Recycling Standard (GRS) certification. From the exclusive lace to the soft tulle and the decorative covered buttons to the eyelash trim, each part of Lumi is a conscious choice for the planet.
Founder and creative director, Megan Ziems, said: “Knowing that up to two thirds of the sustainability impact of fashion happens at the raw materials stage, we made the decision to source and develop our own 100% eco lace in our signature pearl lace design. As a brand, we never stop looking for ways in which we can do better and Lumi was the natural next step in innovation. Repurposing what’s traditionally seen as waste product to create a valued heirloom - to me that’s revolutionary.”
The new Lumi Gown (£2,200) and Lumi Veil (£390) will be available from July 29, as part of the Grace Loves Lace made-to-order offering.
