Loren Chiffon

Due to our exclusive luxury laces, this style is extremely limited. We recommend securing your gown as soon as you know it’s the one.

With a classic, unstructured silhouette and beautiful, delicate details, the Loren has become one of our most iconic gowns. The Loren is for the woman who wants a dress that she can make her own, as this simple, elegant gown, which will always be a GLL favourite, can be recreated to suit any Grace girl.

Beginning with a stretch French lace bodice with hand-cut appliquéd motifs and an invisible Italian mesh neckline, The Loren is known for it’s soft, feminine accents. Featuring a stretch waist, which can be accentuated by wrapping the long pieces of silk chiffon that fall from the back of each strap, the Loren is a dress that defines the waist in the most flattering and subtle way. For a more whimsical feel, these pieces of silk chiffon can be left untied to create beautiful movement. We love the sheer lace back of the Loren, which has dainty mesh straps and silk chiffon strips that are tied to create a criss cross effect. The free-flowing silk chiffon skirt has a satin lining, and can be handmade with no train or a 40cm, 80cm or 120cm train.

Stylists' Notes

We envision the Loren Chiffon in white with the Virtue earrings, as the vibrant turquoise will pop against the fresh white lace. The Gabriela veil will add a traditional, yet effortless feel to this feminine gown.

The Loren Chiffon in ivory is perfectly styled with the elegant Maya earrings and Jolie veil for a timeless and romantic look.

Special Notes + Questions

I want a train…
We can add a 40cm train to the Loren gown for a traditional, yet understated feel. Alternatively, an 80cm or 120cm train can be added for a more dramatic feel.

Can I wear a bra?
You can wear a skin coloured strapless bra or an adhesive bra if you want more shape and support.

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

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Loren has a fully lined skirt, however the bodice has sheer mesh detailing.

What does it feel like to wear?
The Loren is a beautiful, feminine gown to wear. It was been handmade with lightweight lace and soft, delicate silk, with no structure or boning, which makes it comfortable and easy to wear.

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?
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.
