Leah Da Gloria: Australia’s most-loved premier Bridal Designer

‘It is easy to dress some model, but it is very rewarding to dress someone with a regular body, and you make them look amazing and feel amazing, which is priceless. That is the best part.’ – Leah Da Gloria

Leah Da Gloria is a Sydney-based designer specialising in bridal gowns and couture costumes. She graduated from the Sydney Institute of Design in 2007 and won the finalist position at the Australian’s Project Runway Season 4.

The designs were inspired by European fashion; sinuous lace and glittery sparkling crystals embody, whether, in a mermaid, a ball gown or a fit and flare style, our brides will be the spotlight on their special days. 

‘Each piece is special. There is emotion attached to it. Each girl is like a work of art. I want to transform people, not to be different but to be their best version of themselves. It is very satisfying when a bride puts on the gown you spent hours creating. You can see that they are really happy and they like YES! Job Done!’ – Leah Da Gloria
