THE 2019 BRIDAL COLLECTION

Custom, hand-crafted bridal gowns & pantsuits designed in downtown Los Angeles

 

THE GRETA GOWN


A ball gown for the modern bride. Crafted from gardenia-inspired floral jacquard, lined with silk and layered with fine tulle, this gown is a showstopper. An off-the-shoulder fairytale flounce, corset bodice and shirred waistband give way to a full skirt and sweeping train.

The bridal power suit. Feminine detailing and interior structure strike a delicate balance, giving way to an effortlessly chic ensemble.

THE FIONA GOWN


An ethereal goddess dress. Hand-embroidered tulle with 3D floral appliqué highlights the shoulders, accents the waist and cascades along the skirt.

THE ISABELLE CAPE & MILA GOWN


This dreamy lace cape with delicate hand beading is edged with floral eyelash scallops. The silhouette drapes gracefully over the arms and pools into a perfect train. Capelet & dress variations also available. The Isabelle is layered here with The Mila Gown.

THE FAYE GOWN


Plunging corset bodice wrapped in jacquard, layered with tulle and accented with hand beading and embroidered 3D organza petals. Mitered, variegated stripes give this pleated skirt an unexpected twist for the non-traditional bride.

THE MILA GOWN


A magic sheath fit to perfection. Two layers of buttery, sand-washed stretch silk charmeuse skim your body through the hip, cascading into a flared hem and train. Chic on its own, lovely paired with the Evelyn or Isabelle cape.

THE BIANCA CORSET & ANGELINE SKIRT


Sheer structure with mechanical stretch give this tulle corset a sculpted fit. Hand-embroidered appliqué float across this delicate skirt. Peachy-nude in hue, this ensemble oozes femininity.

THE AVA CAMI & GISELLE SKIRT


Silk double georgette makes this cami lighter than air. When draped, the skirt creates a soft a-line silhouette. Twirl and watch as yards of cloud-like silk float around you. Hand-beaded trim accents the waist.

THE LAUREL PANTSUIT


The pantsuit of your dreams. Fanciful yet elegant, a v-neck front and ballet-inspired back balance the audacious flare leg.

THE AUDREY CORSET & CAMILLA SKIRT


The Audrey’s sweetheart neckline and softly dipping back pair perfectly with the Camilla skirt. Layers of strategically cut fabric hint at traditional ball gown fullness, yet keep the waist lean and fuss free. A classic silhouette with modern detailing.

THE ISLA GOWN


A nymph-like statement piece. The plunging neckline with off-the-shoulder, draping diaphanous tulle straps, and hand-embroidered 3D floral appliqué across the bodice, give this gown a truly magical quality.

THE GWEN CORSET & SOPHIA SKIRT


The Sophia skirt is a timeless staple and the perfect pairing for the jewel that is Gwen. This lightweight, corded lace corset boasts surprising structure. The combination of rich almond-nude and delicate ivory are a fresh spin on a classic elegance.

THE DELPHINE GOWN


Textured, embellished, sophisticated. A delicate hand-beaded bodice transitions into frothy layers of lace and tulle. Slim through the hips and gently cascading into a dramatic full hem, the Delphine is a true showstopper.

Inquiries & Appointments

Please email hello@amandajamesbridal.com


 

Brides, come on by to pre-order your 2019 gown. Buyers, please inquire about becoming a stockist. Those in need of a special occasion gown, please reach out.

 

All of the looks are custom made. I order small batch novelty fabrics, use intricate construction and fit several times before the style is ready to be worn. The typical lead time is three to six months.

 

Customization is available in my downtown Los Angeles studio. In addition to what you see online, most styles are available for order in classic ivory, rich black and a range of specialty colors perfect for events and red carpet.

 

Come sip bubbly and play dress up.
