Introducing the newest designer to

MRS. BRIDAL

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,

Limor Rosen

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.

Q&A

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. 

 

Jamie & Matt: Boho Glam

Kelly Power

We love a bride that knows what she wants and sticks to her guns. Jamie was exactly that type of bride. She came in with her family in tow and knew that while she wanted them to love her choice, it was ultimately her choice and she was going to pick what she loved. That's exactly what happened when Jamie tried on a stunning sparkly number by Canadian designer Theia. She knew instantly that this was the look she was going for. There were modifications she knew she wanted to make to the dress so that it was unique to her style and taste. With the help of our amazing seamstress Larissa, the end result was a fit-like-a-glove, one of a kind, stunning gown.

In her own words.... 

I chose my sparkly Theia dress because it was more evening gown than bridal gown and I’m more eclectic than traditional. I knew the simple silhouette covered in the sequins and beading would give me that understated “wow” factor.

Jamie married Matt on June 6th 2014 at the Mill House in Picton, Ontario. Jamie described their wedding as "Bohemian Glamour....Elegant, yet casual." The wedding had a very relaxed, down to earth feel and was chalk-full of unique details like the 1001 origami cranes that created the ceremony backdrop and the giant dream catchers handmade by Jamie and her family. The amazing barn venue was filled with the scents of fresh flowers from fields near by and delicious food, the sounds of fantastic music and the love of wonderful family and friends. She described it as a "dream come true." Sounds like it to us!!

Caitlin & Tyler: Romance & Fireworks in Muskoka

Every so often we have a bride who walks through our doors who knows exactly what she is looking for. This bride has a very distinct taste or idea in her mind and knows herself very well. This was the case with Caitlin. When Caitlin, her sister, and her mom visited our shop for the first time they knew they were looking for something elegant but unique- something that people would say "wow! I haven't seen anything like that before!" It wasn't long after we put her in "Analise" by Elizabeth Fillmore that she knew that this dress fit the bill. Caitlin describes her quest for the perfect gown....

I'm not really a puffy or lace type person, so right from the start I knew finding my perfect wedding dress was not going to be easy. I wanted something different, but still traditional. I started scouring wedding magazines and tearing out pictures of dresses I liked and showing them to Tyler. I wanted to make sure that Tyler loved the dress that I picked, as I wanted him to be blown away when he saw me for the first time. Ty was great help, he definitely knew what he didn't like and thankfully we were on the same page. It was really important to him that I looked like myself on the day in something that was very me. 
We flew back from London for friend's wedding and my mom and sister had planned a day of wedding dress shopping! We went to about 6 bridal boutiques in total that day with MRS being our last stop. The day had not been a success, until...I tried on the beautiful Elizabeth Fillmore gown a.k.a. my dress at MRS! You hear of people having 'the it moment' when they just know its the right dress and I definitely did. When I came out of the dressing room with the dress on, I knew it was 'the one' when all 3 of us - me, my mom and sister started to cry. It was a magical moment and I knew my search was over. It took me one day to find my dress and I never looked back. Each time I tried it on I fell more and more in love.

Caitlin was not afraid to make a statement and she wasn't afraid to customize either. In fact, we were able to set up a private fitting for Caitlin with Elizabeth Fillmore in her New York City studio. It was there that the creative process continued. Elizabeth and Caitlin worked together to make small tweaks in the original design to reflect more of Caitlin's taste and personality. The result? A truy one-of-a-kind wedding gown. What's more amazing, and truly a testament to the wonderful person Caitlin is, beyond the initial appointment when Caitlin chose the dress, all correspondence regarding the changes/customization with our team at MRS. was done over email due to the fact that Caitlin was living in London, England at the time. It was this trust in our team- that we would come through for her in the end- that made the process enjoyable for all parties. When Caitlin returned home for alterations and for her big day- we were delighted to see the final product- and so was she- to say the least!

Caitlin married Tyler McGraw on September 13th, 2014 at Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club. We knew that the wedding would be stylish, sophisticated yet personal and intimate, given what we had learned from meeting Caitlin. She described her vision for the wedding as "soft, romantic, magical, and elegant- all while incorporating the stunning outdoor setting of Muskoka. Judging by the photos by the talented  Storey Wilkins Photography it's clear to see that romance, magic, and elegance was definitely in the air. Caitlin sums up the day beautifully...

Our wedding day was truly a magical day filled with love, laughter and celebration. Tyler and I were overwhelmed by the love and support we felt on our wedding day. Before getting married, Ty and I dated for almost 14 years. Growing up he was the boy next door that I knew I needed to be with. We started dating when I was 15, he was 16 and we have been together ever since. We wanted our wedding day to be a celebration of our commitment to each other (past and future) and to honour our friends and family who have and continue to play a large part in our lives.There were a lot of laughs, some happy tears, but above all else this indescribable feeling of love and warmth.

One Summer, Two Sisters.

Kelly Power

We've said it before and we'll say it again- if there is one thing that gets us even more excited than when one of our brides says "YES" to their perfect gown it's when her sister does too! That is exactly what happened to us last year with two very special brides. First, we met Dayna. Dayna was looking for a romantic yet sophisticated gown for her July 5th nuptials. She came with her Mom and sister Allison. They were such a pleasure to have in our shop- sweet, supportive, and stylish: triple threats! Dayna tried on several lace gowns but when she put on Amy Kuschel's "Correta" gown, that was it. It encompassed everything Dayna was looking for: stylish yet sophisticated, classic but with modern twists, and elegant but with some sexi-appeal as it fit her body beautifully. She paired her dress with a stunning birdcage headpiece and as you will see below, the look came together beautifully. Dayna's overall aesthetic for the wedding really complimented the venue- A private polo Farm in Alliston, Ontario. It was rustic chic with stunning details as captured by Jamie Coyle Photography.

We were delighted to see Dayna, her mom and her sister leave our store so happy; we were shocked (and delighted) when they returned not too long after... but this time for Allison! Yes, that's right, BOTH sisters were planning their weddings for the SAME summer (kudos to Mom for juggling that!). Again, they were a pleasure to have in our shop. 


Allison too was drawn to lace but was looking for something a little more modern with clean lines. Again, armed with her amazing entourage, Allison finally stumbled upon her perfect gown- a stunning Rose and Delilah lace sheathe gown called "Daphne". Daphne is the epitome of fun, sexy and romantic. The raw edge capped sleeve made the dress unique and fun while the stunning plunge back made it oh-so-sexy. Just as her sister did, Allison brought her own touch to the dress by added a stunning headpiece to complete the overall look. Allison was married on September 6th 2014 at Knox College Chapel at University of Toronto and then the Fermenting Cellar in the historic distillery district. The romantic affair was captured beautifully by Magnolia Studios Photography.

Now, let's be honest, this type of situation does not always bode well for two sisters- competitiveness, jealousy, etc... can tend to sneak in. This could not be further from the case with Dayna and Allison. They were so unbelievably supportive of one another and never seemed to mind swapping turns in the spot-light. There was never a fitting where the other sister wasn't there giving the bride her full attention. Their love and complete joy for one-another is truly visible in their photos. Their weddings, although sharing the same summer, were so unique and equally stunning in their own right- just like Dayna and Allison themselves.
