L’atelier

DRAWING YOUR LACE IS A GREAT PROCESS FOR YOU AND THE DESIGNER, IT’S LIKE CREATING A SECOND SKIN THAT IS COMPLETELY PERSONALISED.

We are proud to manufacture sustainable, storytelling lace in the Netherlands, inspired by our brides’ background and heritage. After your wedding day your gown might not be worn again, but you may not want to part with it either. To encourage environmental friendliness, Mansion M’Elise offers a circular solution to give your wedding dress a second life. We can transform your lace gown into a beautiful modern painting or create a stunning crib for your newborn.

Born in London, she has moved no less than nineteen times, from Europe to the Middle East and back. Now she makes wedding dresses and party clothes with influences from the many cultures she has become familiar with. Editor-in-chief Liza thought it was time for a chat with the designer.
