Award winning creative partnership Christine Wilke and Jane Hancock launched Lou Lou in 1991 after graduating from the prestigious London College of Fashion. Christine graduated in Design and Jane in Pattern cutting.
Lou Lou began as a bridesmaid label and the company was soon successful because Christine and Jane shared a passion for innovative design. In 2009 Lou Lou launched a range of simple, well-cut, elegant yet affordable wedding dresses. It proved to be another turning point in the history of this successful, innovative company and evolved into their vintage-inspired signature look. In 2018 Christine & Jane launched the Louise Bentley collection to sit alongside Lou Lou Bride.
Designing is our passion and our inspirations are widespread: the subtle palette of the Impressionists, vintage fashion plates, silver screen movie stars and theatrical design not to mention our mothers who introduced us to the sewing machine.
We feel that being bridal wear designers allows us to be more creative and imaginative. We love understated glamour and like nothing more than a well cut dress with clean lines and romantic detailing. For us everything is in the detail. We’re very hands-on with every aspect – design, fit, sales and presentation.
