Designer Spotlight - Étoile

Designer Spotlight - Étoile




We’re lucky to feature some of the most incredible bridal gown designers in the industry here at Belle Amour Bridal, but today we wanted to highlight one in particular - specifically, the Étoile collection from Élysée. Here’s a little background on where this collection came from and how this designer has created the perfect balance of elegance and modern femininity in these designs.




In 2019, Élysée launched its bridal division. Its name comes from the ancient Greek word "Elysium," which refers to a place or state of complete happiness. It's impossible to resist the timeless and gorgeous designs of the Élysée collection! As of February 2020, Christopher Russell and Mark Russell have been the Artistic Directors of the Élysée division. In the golden age of European design, their gowns were lavish and impossibly breathtaking. They have more than 15 years of experience at some of the world's most prestigious bridal and eveningwear houses, creating a unique and influential design aesthetic that resonates with brides all over the world.







A fresh dose of elegance and youthful femininity was introduced to the Beautiful Bridal collection in 2020 when it was rebranded Étoile and made part of the Élysée Division. This collection is designed to achieve the same level of luxury as Élysée, but at a modest price point, while maintaining the aesthetic of Étoile's sister line Élysée. The body-contouring fit and tastefully modern embellishments of Étoile will delight brides with its classic and contemporary silhouettes. With Étoile, French for "STAR," each bride's natural brilliance is accentuated so she can shine like a star - what’s not to love about that?
