Valentine Avoh's designer: Valentine launched her eponymous bridal label in 2017 from Brussels, having graduated with a major in fashion design from London College of Fashion. Her previous work experiences include working for Alexander McQueen and Alexis Mabille. "In love with fashion and sewing, my aim is to design haute couture pieces for modern brides," Valentine told POPSUGAR. "I produce all the pieces myself, from sketching to sewing, and making paper patterns. I mainly get inspired by music, red carpets, vintage movies, and everything in between. My clients are who really inspire me to create differently."
The Valentine Avoh Bride: wishes to highlight her femininity without compromising ease. Valentine Avoh is for brides who want to look glamorous on their wedding day, wearing a carefully handcrafted piece made in the finest materials such as silk, French lace, embroidered tulle, or feather. They love the bespoke approach, knowing that each dress is made to their measurements and can be customized according to their taste and bodies — or they can also go for a truly unique design.
Valentine Avoh's Current Mission: Since the lockdown I have been updating my website, my social media platforms, and sketching for my 2021 collection. Now that the lockdown is over here in Belgium, I have resumed work on the few wedding dresses I have left for the year, as 70 percent of my brides had to postpone their weddings."
