Inspiration & Philosophy


Welcome to LWD Couture, a bridal bespoke service offering unique and sustainable options for your wedding gown and party.  Choosing a gown for your special day can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t fit under the standard sizes found in bridal boutiques.  LWD Couture offers custom designed gowns tailored to your figure so the size is made specifically for you.

LWD Couture’s ethos is to challenge the current fashion paradigm by creating ‘slow fashion’.  Unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that are made from longer lasting fabrics like silk, which are breathable and healthier to you and the environment.  Each design is cut to the exact fabric yardage, so waste is brought down to a minimum and every element serves a purpose.  All garments are hand crafted with care in a little studio nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, NC.

Everything is measured, patterned, draped, cut and sewn by hand so each gown is unique and tailored to the individual.   Gowns are cut from sustainable silk cloth that upon request, can be hand-dyed using natural dyes.
