Spotlight on: House of Mooshki
You've probably never heard of House of Mooshki - because the bespoke bridal design house works on a small scale, designing individual dresses for individual customers. As a result? It has a really short lead-in time - their record is 18 days from commission to finished product!
Dresses are made in a variety of lengths and fits: we're talking tea-length, calf-length and long with a train, and in a variety of colors, too. The Harriet dress (above), for example, is available in tea-length, calf-length and long with a train, and in ivory, vanilla and ivory, blush and Champagne, and pure Champagne. Size-wise, these gowns start at a size 2 and go up to an 18, but House of Mooshki also offers a bespoke measuring option.
We know what you're thinking: these gowns have got to be super expensive, right? At the risk of sounding like an ad, dead wrong: prices start at around $2,350. So, okay, not cheap - but not as wallet-busting as Galia Lehav or Berta Bridal! We love the beautiful dyed lace detailing of the fall 2014 collection, pictured here, and y'know what we love even more? House of Mooshki's "real brides" gallery on the website. It's such a great way to see what your favorite gown would look like on a non-model figure, we're surprised more designers haven't done the same!
