I had the great fortune recently to visit the atelier of Laure de Sagazan in Paris, France. I was amongst several photographers participating in a couture photo shoot with some of the most beautiful, classy, elegant bridal gowns I’d ever seen.
Laure began her business in 2011, and explained to us the process used to create these amazing designs. The bottom floor of her atelier is a beautiful showroom, with many dresses on display, and is the place where a bride can have a look to find her perfect dress, or to try on one she’s already selected for a first or final fitting.
Each dress is custom made for each bride, many of the dresses include delicate lace, or in French, dentelle, which is made in France. Upstairs, you’ll find the atelier itself, with dozens of hardworking professionals creating the designs.
Laure shared that her designs are now sold worldwide. She was friendly and hospitable, and it was a pleasure to be able to photograph her gorgeous works of art in this space.
I highly recommend visiting her site (it’s in English and many other languages) at https://www.lauredesagazan.fr
