Who is the face behind Naya?

I’m Evie, the founder of Naya Bridal. After my degree in Fashion Design I went straight into working for a fashion brand as a designer. I soon realised the importance of knowing where your clothes come from, and whether sustainability has been a factor in making these clohes. Knowing that your wedding dress was made locally and sourced ethically is more meaningful than ever.

Our Ethics and Sustainability

Designing bridal wear has always been a dream of mine, so why can’t we make it sustainable too?
Imagine how many wedding dresses are stuck in attics never to be worn again. I source pre-loved dresses and fabrics, and remake them into contemporary styles, sewing every piece myself. Doing this means I can create modern wedding dresses at affordable prices, but most importantly, each dress has a story, and has been made with sustainability in mind. Every gown is a one-off style that has been thoughtfully developed throughout a long process of deconstructing and rebuilding.
Consideration is given throughout as to where the fabrics come from and how much waste is accumulated along the way.
The service of creating a custom gown means these dresses aren’t made in bulk, and the fabrics sourced are controlled and considered. Using clever pattern cutting techniques, this reduces excess fabric going to waste.

Did someone say Alterations? We also offer an alteration service! If you need a pinch or tuck on your gown head to our Alterations Page for all the details.

(Disclaimer: Due to the dresses being remade from pre-loved gowns, this means these dresses have character.
The fabrics aren’t brand new from a factory, and therefor have small imperfections such as little pulls.)
