NEW! Fabienne

*Please note: This gown is available exclusively online only until late October when it arrives in our global showrooms. If you have a GLL showroom appointment in late October and wish to try on this style, please email [email protected] 

Feminine, opulent and wildly romantic, the Fabienne gown was inspired by the woman who dances fearlessly to the beat of her own drum. Luxuriously delicate panels of French Chantilly lace cascade from the two-tone ivory Galloon lace bodice and fall dramatically back down to earth. Ending in an eyelash lace trim, Fabienne’s full circle skirt comes alive with movement. The gown is truly poetry in motion –  free from side seam boning, the fitted bodice has an elasticated waist and is suitable for all body shapes and sizes. The sweetheart shaped lining moulds to the body with gripper elastic around the neckline while the décolletage is framed by a playful lace trim which graduates to form one line of trim around the centre back.

The Fabienne is designed to be floor length at the front. If you wish to have a little extra length on the front hem (as seen in images 2, 5, 6, 18, 19, 24, 25, 28, 29, 31), please include this in your order notes at checkout.

“Created for the passionate woman with an appreciation for all things beautiful, Fabienne is a feminine dress profoundly effortless by nature. It softly glides with an air of drama and is truly poetry in motion – it moves as you move. I’m in love with how the trim compliments the French Chantilly lace which falls to a dramatic train. Comfortable and easy to wear Fabienne is equal parts opulent Boheme and classic renaissance beauty” – GLL Founder, Megan. 

“The Fabienne bride oozes playful femininity and leaves you wanting more. Fabienne is both sexy and earthy. Lace trim armbands frame the décolletage in the most subtly sensual way while tiers of laces are finished in the most delicate eyelash fringing. The Fabienne woman is earthy, soulful and spirited. This dress truly beckons the soul to shine through – especially when the full circle skirt is taken to the dance floor!” – GLL Stylist, Bec.

Your gown will be made to order, especially for you. Our Customer Service team will be in touch with you within days of you placing your order to discuss your measurements, height and size preference. It's important to note that our gowns are specifically designed for an easy, comfortable and versatile fit with luxurious stretch laces and stretch components in each design. Your measurements act as a guide and we make your gown to the dress size that each part of your body fits. This might mean your measurements have placed you as an all-over, equal size or your bust, waist, hip may differ in size categories. Don't worry, this is very normal and everyone is different.

Simply choose the dress size that best suits your general dress size in the size dropdown menu below. You can add your measurements, height and wedding date to your order and we will also confirm this with you after you place your order. If you do not have your measurements on hand whilst you are ordering, don't worry, we will get them off you at your earliest convenience.

Each style dress has specific measurements we need, some more than others, depending on how fitted it is.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
The Fabienne has built in cups so there is no need to wear a bra.

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

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Fabienne is fully lined with a soft stretch ivory lining in the bust and a satin ivory lining in the skirt.

What does this dress feel like to touch?
The Fabienne feels soft and luxurious. It has been handmade with French Chantilly eyelash lace and Galloon lace.

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 [email protected]

How is my dress made?
We hand make your dress especially for you in our studio. We are based in Queensland, Australia and we deliver worldwide.

Can I alter the design of my dress?
We would love to give every bride 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.
