8 years self-employed with my studio for bridal fashion in Leipzig
A lot has happened in the last 8 years. My colleague joined me in the second year of business and she still actively supports me today. We moved from the southern suburbs to Reudnitz, expanded our beautiful studio apartment with a small showroom, workshop, office and kitchen. In the meantime there were three of us, at the moment there are two of us again and we are excited to see what the future will bring. The last two years have not been easy for us either. Again and again lockdowns, canceled and postponed weddings and finally the energy crisis have taken a good deal of the former ease. My little son, who was often ill since daycare started, also made things pretty hectic.
It was all the more important for me to give my studio a little love this year. I’ve always loved decorating the shop window. Our wedding dresses hang on beautiful copper rods, and a new addition this fall was a clothes stand just for our two-piece suits that I ordered from Etsy. In the spring we redesigned the wall and hung new curtains. What was missing was a new mural! After the start of our new bridal fashion collection, I was finally able to take on this project and immortalize some of Sophia Molek’s beautiful photos on canvas.
Photos on canvas as decoration for the studio
Maybe you’ve already read it on Instagram: I was inspired by Anne of Green Gables for our new collection of lovingly boho and vintage-style bridal fashion. I love the photos that were taken at the Kössern manor soooo much! So it was only logical that I would like to have some of them as murals as well. Luckily Photowall asked me if I would be interested in a cooperation. The canvases are indeed beautiful and even our photographer Sophia Molek was very enthusiastic about the quality of the print. The large canvas actually consists of two individual pieces – one measuring 50 x 50 cm and one measuring 100 x 50 cm. In addition, I ordered a single canvas for decoration and for measuring in the format 50 x 70 cm. I arranged this in front of our dress doll with a delicate string of lights and bridal shoes from Rachel Simpson Shoes.
Two piece for the bride
Since this autumn there has been a separate clothes rail for our tulle skirts and bridal skirts, which you can combine with the lace tops and bodices to create a beautiful, individual two-piece suit. I ordered the copper rod from Etsy and think it’s super pretty. I’m still considering hanging the tops a little higher and putting the bar with the skirts underneath. That was actually my plan.
Sustainable wedding dresses, made in Leipzig
Of course there are also “classic” wedding dresses to be discovered in our studio for bridal fashion in Leipzig, whereby these are always modern and simple at Schleifenfanger. It is important to me that the brides can move freely on their wedding day and that the dress feels natural. I am very proud that we have been able to use more and more natural and sustainable materials in recent years. There are already laces made from certified organic cotton, and many base materials are made from the sustainable Tencel fiber. For chiffon, which should flow and not crease, we rely on recycled polyester.
With us, the bride knows what she is wearing on her skin – and she knows where her wedding dress comes from! All wedding dresses, two-piece suits and accessories for the bride and groom are made in our in-house workshop, which is right next to the showroom. So when you come to us for a consultation, it’s quite possible that you’ll hear the sewing machine humming in the next room.
Oh, I’m very happy with our new look for the studio. I think the new canvases go perfectly with our boho-style wall design that we did ourselves in the spring. I am very happy.
