The Story of a Gown
Steeped in the magical world of couture and hand beaded behind the enchanting doors of India’s historic Ateliers, the story of a Bo & Luca gown begins in Australia before a global adventure (woven with the magic of traditional artisan techniques and craftsman skills) unfolds.
In a sunlit studio in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, all dreamy whites, morning light spilling onto raw wooden floors and amidst the racks of whimsical embellished white gowns blowing delicately in the breeze – designer Shannon Pittman designs and hand-cuts each new collection of bridal gowns.
With the free-spirited, daringly different bride instinctually at the forefront of her design vision, each piece is unexpected, unique, unimaginably beautiful and unlike anything remotely bridal – speaking instead to the wearer and her loves.
From here Shannon travels to India to bring the collection to life. Spending months sourcing luxurious fabrics and the finest silks from the local silk mills and overseeing the intricate beadwork and embellishment by local master craftsman, that come together to create the breathtaking finishes and opulent fabrics, synonymous with a Bo & Luca gown.
