We have been loving short and cocktail-length wedding dress styles since our site launched. They channel the 1940s to 1960s in all kinds of amazing, vintage ways. And fabulous dress designers, House of Mooshki, are PROS at channeling those vintage vibes. From delicate lacy sleeves and full cocktail skirts to color underlays and prints and beautiful embroidery, they are able to capture a moment in time that will up the ante on your whole wedding look.
House of Mooshki has been at the forefront of short, tea length wedding dress design for the past 10 years. They're totally a market leader with their creative designs each new season and personalized service. They're based in the U.K., but have U.S.-based trunk shows that are the perfect venue to try on their styles and meet with their designers face-to-face and customize their own gown.
Here is a bit more about their process from the team:
“How do I want to look?” “What will people want to see me in?” “Do I have time to get it made and altered?” These are just a few of the questions that we get asked on a regular basis and one of the main reasons why we operate the way we do and why we differ so much from your regular bridal stores.
A decade ago, we made our first collection and one of the first dresses we designed was a gown called Olivia. She started life as a long ballgown, and as we did the line review, we somehow felt it just wasn't right and therefore took a pair of scissors and cut her off. It's not just about cutting an A-line dress and making it shorter to create that vintage look. You must completely change the skirt shape so that it twirls in that very vintage way. She was instantly a huge hit and is still sold to this day. We knew offering a range of customisations like this was also something that was critical to who we are and how we wanted to operate.
We are now, a decade later, the world's largest designer of retro vintage short tea length wedding dresses. We are copied the world over, and yet no one can match us on design or the quality of bodice and corsetry we hide in every dress we do.
At House of Mooshki, our designs are vintage-inspired but with the modern design elements you want. Every dress is made to order, and you can even design your own. If a dress is short, it can come in long and vice versa. You can have colours, fishtail, pencil, high-low… the options are endless.
Unlike many designers, we design ALL our dresses to work in plus size. None of us at Mooshki are the same and we wouldn't want to be. We are all individual, just like you, and just like our dresses. We make your size, whatever that may be.
We are U.K. based but travel to the USA four times a year to New York, Chicago, Dallas, and L.A. If you're anywhere near there, come and meet the design team, see our beautiful dresses, and create your own bespoke wedding gown. Or contact us at [email protected] to get started from anywhere.
