New Ms Fit Feature: The designers behind Rue De Seine
Tis' wedding season and lucky for us, and our Ms Fits, Rue De Seine made a stop at the local bridal boutique, Ceremony on their Nomadic Love tour. Ceremony exclusively carries this line of gorgeous and bohemian influenced gowns in all of Massachusetts. The gowns in this collection embody the free-spirit, style and bohemian lifestyle that we love. Each gown is unique in its gorgeous silk, flowered detailing, lace and feminine silhouette and are just as beautiful and stylish as the designer behind it. We are thrilled we had the chance to meet New Zealand designer, Greer Osborne, and lucky she took time out of her busy North American tour to share with us about what she is loving in fitness and fashion and a little more about her business partner and the artistic director at Rue De Siene, Michele Corty!
WHAT IS KEEPING YOU BUSY THESE DAYS?
We have just moved our design studio to Chicago where we are hoping to connect with more American brides who we see are to become our biggest market. We are having the Nomadic Love tour that started in Boston and will continue through the new year which involves a lot of traveling and meeting all of our beautiful brides. We will be visiting all our US retailers with the entire collection and will be there to help style the gowns. Visit our website for the full tour list at
. All Rue De Seine gowns will continue to be hand made in New Zealand.
WHAT ARE YOU LOVING IN FITNESS AND FASHION RIGHT NOW?
We have just returned from New York for Bridal Fashion Week where we saw some really interesting and beautiful things; my favorite was the styling of Naeem Khan's runway. We really love everything bohemian and the spring/summer 2016 Chloe collection was just glorious! In terms of fitness, we are always on the go, in airplanes or hotels, so any useful do-it-yourself fitness tips would be much appreciated!
HOW DID YOU GET INTO DESIGNING WEDDING DRESSES? WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR NAME, RUE DE SEINE?
Michele started Rue De Seine 4 years ago with husband Michael. The brand started out as a pop up store in Auckland, New Zealand. Rue De Seine is the street in Paris where Michele and Michael used to live and the brand is based upon the effortless lifestyle of the bohemian women. The gowns have a hint of cheekiness, a touch of boho luxe glam, flooded with florals, lace and of course endless amounts of white. I got into designing wedding dresses after a year spent in New York interning at a bridal fashion house, I then moved back to NZ, and after following Michele's beautiful work I basically asked for a job and have been on the design team ever since.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO BRIDES-TO-BE ON HOW TO PICK THE DRESS THAT IS RIGHT FOR THEIR WEDDING?
When choosing your gown, it's always nice to have friends and family around for such a big decision, we recommend only inviting your very close family and/or friends and keeping it to 2 people max!
