Designed: Meet White Dresses Nashville Designer Lela Rose

Meet Lela Rose, internationally acclaimed bridal designer behind the Lela Rose Wedding Collection offered at White Dresses Nashville.

White Dresses Nashville is head over heels in love with the romantic designs from our amazing designer, Lela Rose. Today, we are excited to share a little about this amazing (and Southern) designer from Texas who literally makes us swoon each market with her romantic designs. 

Lela Rose is widely recognized for her unique aesthetic of juxtaposing refined elegance with modern, whimsical designs through beautiful fabrication and handcrafted details. Upon graduating from Parson's School of Design in 1993, Rose worked with esteemed designers, Richard Tyler and Christian Francis Roth. After honing her love of couture fabric and fanatic appreciation of detail, Lela's vision and passion compelled her to debut her signature Lela Rose collection in 1998. In fall 2006, Rose debuted the Lela Rose Wedding Collection, pairing impeccable quality with beautiful fabrics and exquisite use of detail. 

Born and raised in Texas and having attended school in Colorado, Lela has long been inspired by nature, surrounding landscapes, and the sublime color palette of the lush outdoors, as well as her passion for food and entertaining. With this in mind, Lela not only creates beautiful designs, but also addresses a complete lifestyle, inspired by a world in which every day can be made into an occasion. The Lela Rose Wedding Collection can be found in speciality bridal shops throughout the country and we are elated to be the exclusive bridal shop in Tennessee. 

Our Nashville bridal shop weighed in on why they love Lela Rose.

Our Nashville bridal boutique loves every gown that is part of the Lela Rose Wedding Collection, but our shop owners simply gush over The Villa and The Magnolia Tree. 

The Villa is literally the dream wedding dress - a unique fabric, a perfect fit and a stunning neckline make this beauty a gown that just simply can’t be resisted. As a shop owner and a lover of all things fashion, gowns like The Villa are what make working in this industry so amazing. The way Lela transformed the classic wedding dress into a gown that I’ve never seen anything like before while maintaining the timeless nature all brides desire is something that should definitely be applauded.

The Magnolia Tree seriously made me gasp when I saw it for the first time. I love the illusion neckline and the gorgeous back. I feel like every inch - ever minute detail - of this gown has been perfectly designed and planned.
