Colette

Designed with a bohemian-luxe silhouette and Parisian chic details, our Colette gown is perfect for the traditional, hopeless romantic who wants a modern, yet timeless gown. With a whimsical, free flowing shape and statement accents, including a sultry low back, the Colette was made for the effortlessly cool and elegant GLL girl.

Beginning with a fitted stretch French lace bust, complimented by delicate spaghetti straps, with statement lace sleeves, which can be worn on or off the shoulder, the Colette is a beautifully understated gown that flatters all shapes. The highlight of the Colette is the alluring, low, scooped back, which is perfectly balanced by the fine straps. The flowing silk chiffon skirt, which falls naturally from under the bust, features a subtle French lace trim and side splits to create movement. The simple skirt then extends into a 40cm, 80cm or 120cm train.

Size + Fit

Our models wear a standard size XS (Australian size 8). Each gown requires particular measurements to be taken, these measurements then determine your dress size. If you are unsure of your dress size, please visit our sizing page to view our measurement charts and a video. Do not worry if you are measuring different dress sizes for different parts of your body, this is common. Our customer care team communicates with you throughout the process.

In between sizes? Each one of our gowns is made from a beautiful stretch French lace, so it all comes down to personal preference. Do it your way, choose whether you’d like a form fitting gown or a more relaxed fit.

The Colette stretches over the head and down the body with no need for zips or buttons. The fitted stretch French lace bodice, with delicate spaghetti straps, is perfect for all bust sizes. The flowing silk chiffon skirt, fully lined with a soft satin, has been designed with a subtle French lace trim and side splits, which then extends into a 40cm, 80cm or 120cm train.

Stylists' Notes

We envision our Colette gown with our timeless Gabriela or Colette veil, simple stud earrings and understated sandals. Alternatively, the Colette gown is perfect for the carefree, barefoot bride.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
You wear can a low back strapless bra or adhesive cups with the Colette gown for shape and support. However, it has been designed with a fitted bodice, so it is suitable for all bust sizes.

What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Colette gown is fully lined.

What does it feel like to wear?
The Colette is a beautiful and comfortable dress to wear. It has been handmade with a lightweight stretch French lace, with no restrictive boning or structure.

How long does it take for my dress to be made?
Generally our brides order between 6-24 months in advance. We require a minimum of 5 months to hand make our beautiful dresses. For urgent last minute orders please email info@graceloveslace.com.au

How is my dress made?
All of our dresses are designed and hand made at our studio on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Can I alter the design of my dress?
We would love to give every Grace girl what they request in terms of alterations, however each and every one of our gowns undergo intensive design processes to ensure that the fit, feel and balance of each dress is absolutely perfect. Therefore, we do not offer customisations, unless stated.

What if I lose/gain weight?
Our designs are crafted from luxurious French stretch lace, so often if you drop a size in weight, the original size still fits beautifully. If not, it is also very easy to have the dress altered by a professional seamstress if you would like it to be a little more fitted. Your measurements will determine which size you fall into.

Furthermore, we go to every effort to ensure your dress is the right fit. If you place your order well in advance of your wedding date then we can confirm your size right before your dress goes into production.
