Charlie had been a stylist for 10 years when she was required to source a plethora of vintage wedding dresses for a commercial shoot. On selling the dresses afterwards, she was surprised at how popular they were and that ‘light-bulb’ moment inspired her to found The Vintage Wedding Dress Company in 2005.
Its success in-house led to the first collection selling to market in 2011. Brear produced additions, a collection of unique styling pieces to complement the made-to-order line. Starting with a simple crepe, satin or chiffon dress and layering everything from sequined overdress and tiered skirts to hand-beaded pieces, belts, sashes and sleeves, a bespoke look can be effortlessly customised to create a unique bridal look.
The company was re-branded as Charlie Brear in January 2013, in time for the launch of her first mainline fashion ready-to-wear collection.
