An afternoon at Laure de Sagazan Atelier in Paris
An afternoon at Laure de Sagazan Atelier in Paris. Paris is a city known for its elegance and style, and in addition, its fashion and fashion creators. One such visionary is Laure de Sagazan, wedding attire atelier in Paris that’s absolutely exquisite. I had the good fortune to visit the atelier in Paris for a Paris wedding editorial. Laure was warm and friendly, as were all of her staff that invited us into their workspace.
From the moment I entered the atelier, I knew we were in a very special place. You can read more about Laure on her web site, but here’s a bit about her:
After a fashion school graduation, nothing prepared Laure to get close to the wedding world. Nevertheless ! Totally in love with the old days, her skirts are inspired by old fashion standards and are customized to become modern ones. Sustained by literature and the cinematographic feeling, her wedding fashion is inspired by Godard or by Gainsbourg, skirt and hair waiving in the wind. Created in 2011, the trade mark Laure de Sagazan rapidly imposed her figures vaguely casual in the wedding world. Home-made creations 100% made in France, customized in the show-room of the 10th district of Paris.
As her web site indicates, 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. These dresses are elegant, yet simple. They’re for brides who love a vintage look, who are inspired by fashion of the past, but with a modern touch and sensibility. Laure explained that 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. I so enjoyed watching them work, it’s a true art form.
Laure shared that her designs are now sold worldwide, including a store in New York City. 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 to see more of her beautiful work.
