Introducing the newest designer to
From the moment we saw LimorRosen’s beautiful gowns grace the runway, we knew we had to share her designs with our brides back home in Toronto. We love the delicate details and unique
We would like to introduce you all and give a huge warm welcome to our newest designer to the MRS. bridal team,
Modern romance: feminine, dreamy, comfortable dresses with a twist.
Designer Limor was born and raised in the suburbs of Tel Aviv. She graduated from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem where she learned to relate to garments as works of art. Later Limor attended the Instituto Europeo di Design in Madrid, coming into contact with the high standards of the European fashion industry.
After training as part of the design team in the Diane von Furstenberg fashion house in New York, and working in Israel as a designer of women’s clothing and bridal gowns, Limor set up her own studio, LimorRosen, in the heart of the Tel Aviv gallery district.
You can expect to see Limor Rosen’s gown EXCLUSIVELY at MRS fall of 2016.
MRS. What is your favorite dress thus far that you have designed?
Limor: It is extremely hard to to choose as every designs is dear to me and it wouldn't have been made unless I was happy with it, but I feel that the Olivia dress from Urban dreams collection has just the right combination of sexy and chic with a laid back attitude that I love.
MRS. If you could/could’ve dressed anyone who would it be?
Limor: I would love to go back in time and dress my grandmother for her wedding. she was a fashion designer herself and past away when I was very young so I would have liked to know what she would have thought of my designs.
MRS. How do you turn a bride’s vision of her dream gown into an actual dress? What is the most difficult part?
Limor: developing the trust of the bride to be is extremely rewarding and something I find highly important. Many Brides come with an idea of what they want, or have a clear vision of the style they are looking for. However most girls change their mind and may eventually choose a dress they originally didn’t even consider. That is one of the most fun aspects and I love when the bride comes with an open mind and is willing to try new silhouettes but it is also the most challenging part to help here vision the final dress ,sometimes based only on pieces of fabrics pined together. when we custom make a dress for a bride in our studio, we build the dress one step at a time so she can see the dress "come to life" during the process and has the option of choosing and changing along the way.
MRS. Describe the entire design process from idea to final gown. How long does it normally take?
Limor: Designing a new dress is always exciting. The design process starts with finding a source of inspiration, I collect this information from many different places: Books, the Internet, movies, art etc. Once I have decided on the theme of the collection I will start to sketch, drape and search for new fabrics and textiles. During that process I will work closely with the pattern maker and discuss it technically to see if it’s even realistic or just something that is only in my dreams. Making a collection can take up to three to four months.
MRS. If you were to walk down the aisle today, what type of gown would you choose?
Limor: If I were to walk down the isle today I would have worn pants, just cause I don't think I would have been able to choose just one dress:)
MRS. Do you have any advise for anyone who wants to follow in your footsteps and set up their own design company?
Limor: Take the time to work for other designers first and know the business. and most important- be true to your style t copy or imitate other designers, you would stay relevant is only if you have a unique point of view.
MRS. What can we look forward to seeing from you next?
Limor: More feminine silhouettes, intricate yet soft designs and layering of laces which would add depth to every design. and the rest is a surprise:)
MRS. How did you become interested in couture bridal design?
Limor: I was looking for a field that would allow me to use high quality fabrics, the best pattern makers and sewers and intricate designs. and I found it to be possible only in bridal couture. the best thing about it however is being able to take part in this special process, getting to know my brides and knowing that I made them happy and beautiful on this once in a lifetime event.
MRS. What inspired the 2017 collection?
Limor: Inspired by the soft detailed patterns and their outstanding elongated feathers, “Birds of paradise” collection blends this flowing tenderness with nature's incredible geometric patterns. This collection incorporates soft, slender silk tulles with polished and fine beaded lace to create feminine, romantic silhouettes.
MRS. What is one of your favorite designs from your most recent collection?
Limor: I love the Aria and eve gowns- they are dreamy yet intricate and sophisticated at the same time.
MRS. What style of woman do you design for? What inspires your designs?
Limor: My brides are feminine , chic women. they are independent , open minded and free thinking. they know quality and are willing to travel to find what they are looking for.
MRS. Are your gowns best in a certain type of venue or setting?
Limor: they can fit every venue depending on the overall styling of the bride ( shoes, jewelry, hair and make up).
MRS. Who is your favorite iconic bride?
I loved Carolina Herrera's dress for Olivia Palermo. it was a cool twist on the classic tulle gowns.
