If you live in Vancouver and know of at least one person in the city who’s embarked on a #SayYestoTheDress journey in recent years, you’re likely familiar with Truvelle, the indie-bridal label that crafts atypical, made-to-order, and relatively affordable wedding dresses for those who refuse to settle for stuffier, more conventional frocks.
Founded and helmed by designer Gaby Bayona, the label has been steadily reinventing the traditional big-day gown since 2013, thanks to the use of unexpected design elements like rose-gold sequins, dip-dyed trains, and bow-tie backs. Truvelle’s 2019 collection—released today (September 5) in time for the brand’s fifth birthday—forwards this vital work with the introduction of boho-chic tassels, pockets (!), and three-quarter-length sleeves in eight dresses that, somehow, manage to look as fresh and swoon-worthy as they do timeless.
Like with Truvelle’s past collections, each frock in the line is named after an important woman in Bayona’s life and crafted with the utmost attention to fit and quality, resulting in flattering V-neck, scoop-neck, and A-line cuts that offer comfort and support as needed. It’s enough to make us wish that wedding season was just a teensy bit longer…
