Little story behind this rare label:
During my time in the UK, I had the pleasure of meeting a skilled pattern maker at Laura Ashley. She was dedicatedly crafting a bridal dress, pouring hours of work into achieving perfection. This particular dress, being one of the latest samples, exuded flawless fit and overall aesthetic. Through conversations with the pattern maker, I gained valuable insights into the brand and its rich heritage.
Additionally, I stumbled upon a documented picture from Laura Ashley featuring this dress. While its precise name eludes me, it may possibly be referred to as Eleonora. Despite the absence of its original belt, this dress holds immense significance. It serves as a symbol, representing the beginning of Laura Ashley's exquisite dress collection—a cherished gem and a piece of history in its own right.
