Pret a Porter

by ateliertammam

You may not be aware that our little couture house also has a wonderful selection of ready to wear wedding gowns, perfect for the eco-conscious, budget led, yet style focused bride. All are available from our new “E commerce” website where you can order your gown to be shipped straight to you!
The collection is named after the other side of my family, aptly “White” (Yes Vera copied me)

We will be adding more designs to the collection next season to accompany the dresses, which include the best selling “Abbie” Dress originally designed as a bespoke brides maids gown in emerald green for my wonderful friend Abigail. We have sold many bespoke versions of this dress as both bridal gowns (in silk or organic cotton sateen) and bridesmaids dresses (in bamboo and cotton sateen) but our ready to wear gown is even more popular, cut just perfectly to skim and flatter every figure using organic fair trade cotton sateen and wild golden peace silk, with just enough train and so easy to accessorize to suit your day (we have had brides wear with a faux fur bolero in winter, with our Rhea cape, on its own accented with beautiful flowers, cut off to tea dress length and the sash tied in a variety of ways) making this popular dress unique to everyone who chooses it.

Do take a peek at our other bridal and bridesmaids designs available now, and any out of stock items can be ordered and delivered within 12 weeks (usually within 6 and of course we will keep you updated). Despite not coming to the atelier for this service one can order as many dresses as one likes (at no extra cost for postage or packing) and try them all, which ever don’t fit or are unwanted can be sent back to us for a full refund.
Also on our new website is the incredible range of hand crafted peace silk scarves, perfect for Mother of the Bride or bridesmaids (or even for oneself) gifts.

The Lucina Puro collection is a timeless assortment of hand crafted accessories created by some of our beloved and favourite artisans. The scarves are hand woven using the finest harvest of wild eri (peace) silk from the forests of Assam, by a hand weavers co-operative in eastern India. The prints are applied by our master Kalamkari printers in Andrah Pradesh who have developed and perfected  a natural dye process that is environmentally friendly, vibrant and uses the local natural resources. We have had our very own blocks created in our signature peacock and deco swirl designs to ensure our beautiful adornments are unimitable. As the print (or embroidery or detailing) is always applied by hand, each individual item is completely unique and one of a kind.

The collection also accommodates a range of deco silver wear crafted by artisans in Kathmandu, Nepal.

So for those who can’t stretch to a bespoke couture gown, or if you just need a little bit of affordable decadence in your life, rest assured the Tammam ethos, quality and luxury is always intrinsic to every collection. Of course we would love to see you at the atelier, but understand not everyone can make it to Bloomsbury.

Yours in pret a porter
