THE KAREN DORNELLIE ARTISAN COLLECTION
LOCATED ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT, I AM A BRIDAL DESIGNER WHO LOVES TO HELP MY BRIDES FIND THE DRESS OF THEIR DREAMS.
I will work closely with you to bring all your ideas to light. No need to compromise on style or fit. We will work within your budget but my work is always to the highest standard and my fabrics are of the best quality.
Alternatively if you or someone you know wishes to make your wedding gown, I can help with personalised sized patterns and access to fabric samples.
I can even offer help and support, should you require it.

I will be introducing my new collection which is inspired by the couture of the golden age of fashion with nods to Chanel and Christian Dior, Balenciaga and Schiaparelli.
I am bringing bridal design up to date with my use of ethical and sustainable fabrics and to use UK based materials as much as possible. I will be making everything in my Isle of Wight base and using only UK companies for any outside help I may need to achieve the perfect finish and look.
Until now eco fabric has not been 'pretty' or delicate enough to make a stunning wedding dress but fabric technology has recently achieved the impossible with silk type fabrics made from bananas, oranges, bamboo and to recycle polyesters.
No more hemp or hessian or 'scratchy' materials.
Beautifully fine and sheer and so much more respectful to our natural world.
I hope you find the journey to make your wedding dress for yourself or another brides goes well.
I have created The Atelier as a place for you to contact either me or my colleague Sue Field who is a well respected high end pattern cutter.
