I know you want to feel beautiful, unique and special in your wedding dress and it’s hard when there are so many dresses out there that don’t feel right, they don’t express your personality, they are not you.
That’s why I created La Poesie Bridal, luxurious light gowns that marry traditional silk fabrics with edgy detailing for a modern bride.
Whether your look is effortlessly chic for City Hall wedding, ethereal layers for rustic barn or a barefoot elopement on the beach, relax I've got the dress for you.
La Poésie Bridal gowns are stocked in exciting bridal boutiques worldwide and your dress will be made to order.
Each dress is designed and expertly made in East London so that I know the skilled women I work with are paid fairly. Our lace is sourced from 19th Century mills in Northern France.
La Poésie bridal gowns are inspired by cool, creative and chic women like you.
Behind every La Poésie design is me, Monika Kashimbaya. I trained as a fashion designer so when you order a dress you get everything I know about making beautiful clothes and making brides happy.
I studied at Studio Berçot in Paris and then worked in design teams for luxury ready-to-wear labels, French fashion has influenced my less-is-more and subtly sexy approach to bridal.
A few year later moved to London and designed high street occasionwear. But the mass market didn’t cater to my love of fine fabrics or ethical manufacture, so in 2013 I started La Poésie in Hackney, East London.
“I WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE BIG DAY EXTRA SPECIAL! MY DRESS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL AND I FELT LIKE A MILLION DOLLARS IN IT."
I love seeing happy brides being true to themselves in their La Poésie gown.
