Charlie Brear launched her first designer womenswear collection in the spring of 2013. The luxury British made brand offers a directional and instinctively feminine spin on the everyday. Brear had been a stylist for 10 years before setting up a company originally selling vintage wedding dresses and later designing and producing a collection of signature bridal gowns, which now sells globally under the Charlie Brear brand name. A strong contemporary aesthetic coupled with timeless understated dress design is winning the brand ever growing interest from magazine editors, stylists and high profile ‘girls about town’ including Alexa Chung, Florence Welch and Caroline Issa. Previously shortlisted as “one to watch” by WWD, The BOF have also shown support for both her bridal and RTW collections. Charlie Brear collections are designed and produced using a diverse range of hand-selected fabrics encompassing intricate lace, metallics and silks in distinctive signature shapes. The brand believes in creating luxury pieces with a strong focus on effortless eveningwear.
