Pure Magnolia Eco Bridal Boutique

I am over the moon when I found out about this local designer.

Just as Eco Fashion Week 06 wraps up, I am met with more eco-goodness.

This time, in the most beautiful dress a girl will ever wear. Of course, that's my inner hopeless romantic speaking.

Pure Magnolia is a local bridal boutique that makes eco-friendly wedding dresses right in her North Vancouver studio.

I was invited to her launch event for the plus size and modular collection.

The dress on the right started out as this cute little number.

After adding a tulle skirt, it becomes this magnificent walking down the isle vision.

I love tulle.

I am no stranger to modular clothing, I love pieces that take on a complete new life with the addition or subtraction of one element.

This dress is a two in one, your ceremony and reception dress just one tulle away.

Patty also understands the female form and is dedicated to creating a piece that will flatter any figure. Her new collection will embrace the ladies with more va-va-va-voom and embrace plus size curves in flattering ways.

This beautiful plus sized gown took my breath away.

I have always dreamed of a floor sweeping stunner. But this slightly cropped version may have me rethinking my vision. This way, those amazing shoes I picture myself wearing are also effortlessly showcased.

The theme of this whole week of posts have been that eco can be so chic.

These Pure Magnolia gowns may just take the cake for being the chic-est.

All Patty's fabrics are either manufactured in North America or Europe and all produced in ethical ways. She also supports Our Social Fabric.

She also works hard on making sure every square inch of fabric is utilized if possible. Some will be turned into these darling embellishments.

All the gowns are made to measure and take up to 4 to 6 months to make. Fitting appointments are made along the way so brides can have as much input as possible in the look of their gown. A lot of her gowns are actually inspired by the brides that the gown was originally created for.

Her attention to detail and craftsmanship is outstanding.  The lace detail on this dress was refurbished from another dress.

All these belts can also go with any other dress as well.

Patty will make sure you will shine bright in your eco-chic gown.  She can even update your mom's old dress to make it current and your own.

For the first year ever, she is also having a sample sale and selling some previous clients' gowns on consignment and at huge discounts.

All gowns come as is, but they are in immaculate condition, after all, we only wear our wedding dress that one day.

The sale starts this Saturday. Check here for event details.
