The made-in-Canada brand has become synonymous with wedding dresses and bridal accessories. It is not without good reason that Gaby Bayona is establishing herself as one of Vancouver’s best known bridal gown designers – she was recently nominated as Western Living’s 2016 ‘Designers of the Year.’ What started as a bridal business in her apartment is now known internationally and has over 37 retailers worldwide.

Bayona’s inspiration for the latest collection came from “the neighbourhood where it all began –Gastown, Vancouver.” Each gown named after a street in the area, explores the bride’s flirtatious and sexy side, while remaining true to the brand’s more refined Kinfolk designs. The namesakes are freshened up with a handful of details such as low-dipping necklines, an emphasis on backless geometric features, and new draping techniques. French lace and chiffon meet in holy matrimony with off-white silk taffeta and off-white grosgrain ribbon in the Cambie gown. The Carrall flirts with nude mesh, off-white ribboned lace, chiffon, and a taupe satin ribbon that criss-crosses both in the front and the back of the gown.

It is all relative for Bayona. Earlier on this year she collaborated with her mother, who is also a designer, and together they launched Truvelle’s sister company, Laudae. The new bridal line “fills a hole in the market for the non-traditional and carefree bride” she says. With its classic mermaid styles, plunging necklines, high leg-slits, and tight fit, the brand sources locally, and uses ecofriendly materials. Each gown unique to its likeness is made-to-order according tho their size chart.

If you are in the search of a bridal gown, head over to Truvelle’s flagship at 235 Cambie Street, and celebrate one of Vancouver’s finest designers in bridal wear.
