Are you launching anything exclusive at the Atelier that hasn’t previously been seen before?
We will exhibit our 2015 capsule collection… From a lovely short dress with silk organza puff sleeves to matching shorties and shirts for baby boys, or a ice blue silk dress with a gorgeous back, 2015 is all about ribbons, fantastic fabrics and lovely details.
Where do you find your creative inspiration?
My first inspiration came from my own wedding. It is such an important and unique day… The bride and the groom want everything to look perfect and beautiful.
I am impassionate with beauty… I like to think I can add a little touch of beauty and refinement in weddings… It is a kind of gift I wish to offer to the brides.
My creative inspiration comes from a background not just of Parisian chic but also from the artistic and aristocratic surroundings of my family. I also love watching the catwalks from the best designers all over the world.
Fabric is very important to me. Once I have sourced the most exquisite materials, I love to play with fabrics, ribbons and colours to make them harmonise.
What makes your brand unique and stand out compared to others in the wedding industry?
Eight years ago, I created Little Eglantine and presented my first collection of flower girl dresses and page boy outfits, in a French style of timeless elegance. Today the brand is sold all over the world, and is cherished by celebrities and society women. Little Eglantine created the dresses of the flower girls and pageboys for Claire Lademacher’s wedding with HRH Prince Felix of Luxembourg.
With Little Eglantine, children receive the personal, warm and sophisticated touch of French “Haute Couture”, which set Little Eglantine’s collection apart. What makes Little Eglantine so unique not only lies in the exceptional and innovative design we offer, but also in the choice of our embroidered or plain taffetas’ fabrics or silk organzas and much more.
Smitten with perfection and refinement, I create unique garments for children, and I travel all over the world to source my fabrics. I work with the finest materials and I skilfully match colours and shapes for everyone’s delight.
“I want children to be beautiful for special occasions. That’s why my creations source their essence in French refinement and good taste, whilst also retaining children’s mischievousness and innocence” says Stephanie Staub, Designer.
Why do you think the Quintessentially Weddings Atelier is so special?
I think the Quintessentially Wedding Atelier is an absolute unique experience for the bride-to-be. It gives the brides and grooms access behind the scenes of some of the world’s legendary brand names and insider secrets experts. Far from the big shows, they can experience a new level of luxury, as well as an exceptional and personal service from the best wedding experts.
What can the lovely brides and grooms attending the Atelier expect from you this year?
I am absolutely thrilled to dedicate myself to the lovely brides and grooms attending the Atelier. I love listening to their wishes, how they see their wedding, what colour theme they have in mind, and create with them the children outfits of their dreams.
If you could give your brides any piece of advice what would it be?
I recommend the brides to order their children’s outfits only three months before their wedding, as children tend to grow up fast.
I always recommend the brides to think of the style they want for their wedding, as this helps when choosing the right dress and colour. Do they want a sophisticated wedding? A countryside one? For each wedding style there is a perfect dress. And photos of the bride and groom surrounded by flower girls and page boys is the cutest souvenir ever.
