To create gorgeous fun-to-wear, eco-chic wedding attire at a fair price. Sustainability, social responsibility, & affordability are our priorities and reflected in every aspect of our business. We partner with our clients to honor their values & give truly exceptional service.
At Conscious Elegance we are committed to creating Safe Space and strongly believe that everyone should have the right to marry, regardless of self-identity, gender expression or sexual preference. It’s so rare and beautiful when people find each other. We support love in its many forms among consenting adults and we welcome clients of all genders and expressions. Please see our Inclusion Policy for details.
I’m a third-generation dressmaker and have been a seamstress for over *cough* 28 years. I can still remember planning my wedding. There was lots of compromise (always!) but one thing I would not compromise was the dress. That dress was mine, all mine. It was the only bit that would be completely my choice. And my choice was not only going to be gorgeous, but eco friendly and socially responsible. My dress would be in harmony with both the earth and my values. And for my wedding, I was glad to let someone else create it and support a fellow artist. But it was a real challenge to find a truly ethical business that gave back to the earth instead of robbed it and didn’t support sweatshops or factories; I knew that there had to be others like me out there who cared about the footprints they leave. And so I created the change I wished to see and Conscious Elegance was born.
Our business espouses Zero Waste Principles. We use exclusively 100% certified organic cottons, pesticide-free hempsilk blends, and reclaimed materials in our dressmaking. We offer new fabric options with the highest percentage of plant fiber that we can find, to be kindest to our fellow fauna. We use certified organic cotton thread in all of our garments (very rare, even in eco-dressmaking!) and our private label is sewn on certified organic cotton. Our garments are individually created in private studios, by fiber artists who are living their Dream.
