Haute Couture outfit’s secrets : the wedding dress from First Creatures

We hear a lot of things about wedding dresses since the dawn of time. Everyone has a point of view: for the Haute Couture saleswomen, “It has to be a customer”; for the ateliers, “It has to reflect the savoir-faire of Haute Couture”; for the design studio, “It has to be innovative”; for the friends, “It has to be bright” and for the press, it has to be “wow effect”.

In fact, it’s all very subjective. All I know is that a Haute Couture wedding dress is only made with a client, according to her desire, her emotions. It is a design that can trigger a desire, an embroidery that can make her capsize, a silk sheet that can transport her, or a detail of the neckline that can touch her.

A wedding dress is a magical moment, a meeting between the designer and a woman.

This season, the wedding dress will take the codes of the collection and will be propelled into another universe. It will be the connection between my obsession with the ocean floor, with its creatures that create their own light, and the stars that shine in the immensity of the universe.

So we’ll start with a very specific subject. “Hello? Emmanuelle, do you think you could make me this incredible material called “royal jelly organza” in optical white? She answers me with enthusiasm, “It smells like a wedding dress…”. It was folded. Eighty meters of this silk organza in relief with a polyamide microfilm that gives it a bewitching reflection.

The workshops, on a base of bustier suspended by tulle illusion, will realize the volume and the cuts of the manta ray. The petticoat with multiple cups will give the effect of a medusa train.
The idea is that the wedding dress is light and airy, as if it were levitating.

Angeliki Tsionou, with her fragility and her diaphanous skin will be the perfect muse to bring the highlight of this collection.

For the hairstyle, the workshops have mounted more than 800 faceted crystal beads on metal rods planted in a chignon medusa made by Jack and the team of the Neville salon.

Nacre Halos

Nicolas will only have to underline, for the makeup, the translucent complexion of Angeliki thanks to mother-of-pearl halos reflecting the light.

For the music, at the moment of the passage of the wedding dress during the fashion show, Jean-Paul proposes a mysterious and bewitching echo taken from the soundtrack of the film Le Parfum.

Maison Julien Fournié is more than a fashion brand, it’s a luxury experience that transcends trends and seasons. With its commitment to excellence and innovation, Julien Fournié continues to redefine the world of Haute Couture and luxury.

Founded in 2009 by Julien Fournié, Maison Julien Fournié creates custom-made haute couture garments for its clients.

With over twenty collections, Julien Fournié has created a recognizable and well-known style. He creates Haute Couture wedding dresses, Haute Couture evening dresses, Haute Couture tuxedo, Haute Couture ceremony dresses, Haute Couture gown… He is able to cater to this particularly demanding clientele in terms of creativity, quality and service to create Haute Couture outfits.

Julien Fournié’s creations are intended for a very high-end clientele. Theses clients seek the uniqueness of the garment. They want a personalized service and a privileged relationship with the couturier. 

Julien Fournié has become a “guest member” in the official calendar of Haute Couture runway shows in 2011. This marked a first step in aknowledging Julien Fournié as a promising new brand in the circle of grand couturiers.

Since January 2017, following the sponsorship of the Chambre Syndicale, the French Ministry of Industry has granted Julien Fournié the Haute Couture label. This means that the Julien Fournié fashion house has joined an exclusive club of only sixteen names in the ultra-luxury world.

While respecting the tradition of Haute Couture, Julien Fournié has also forged new partnerships with high-tech giants such as Dassault Systèmes Apple and Tencent.

Julien Fournié was thus able to digitize the creation, design and personalization of his dresses. He is one of the rare designers of Haute Couture to master the new digital tools. Julien Fournié has introduced a new process in which clients are not just spectators of the creative process. They have become actors in the unique experience of creating a garment wherever they are.

Since December 2020, Julien Fournié has been developing a line of luxury bags and accessories. At first, the idea was to offer handbags seen in Julien Fournié Haute Couture shows and reserved, until then, for Haute Couture clients.

Since then, Julien Fournié has created new luxury bags ranging from evening clutches to tote bags and handbags becoming one of the most exclusive luxury handbags brands.

For the time being, these new luxury bags, Monogrammed bags and totes, clutches are exclusively available on the online boutique of the House.

In 2022, Julien Fournié has launched few pieces of jewelry sold on his online store.
