The Winnie Experience
Every Winnie’s bridal dreamland provides a decadently furnished and tranquil environment for brides to find their perfect dress. Housing over 200 gowns, each Winnie flagship is complete with spacious bridal suites, where brides and their beloved guests can privately experience the intricacies of Winnie’s extensive selection of designer gowns. The romantic ambiance is illuminated by opulent chandeliers with hints of Swarovski elements radiating from the couture gowns. Intimate fitting spaces, plush furnishings, glamorous décor and an overall feeling of luxury and relaxation will provide the perfect backdrop for the most special bridal moments.
The Winnie Couture collection is filled with gorgeous, scintillating details and whimsically romantic silhouettes. The latest styles are leaning towards the soft and airy dresses with layer texture skirts that give off an angelic vibe. Also in vogue are illusion necklines and contouring silhouettes. Detachable skirts and sleeves are in, so there’s an emphasis on the multi-functional. There’s a rise in lightweight lace, tulle and organza fabrics sans embroidery or embellishment, just plain and genuine ways that bring an airy twist to the whole essence of a bride. It adds up to a very breezy, somewhat soul-soothing tone and feel.
The flagship offers a complete selection of crystal belts, delicate veils, and statement jewelry to complete the entire bridal vision. Importantly, Winnie’s bridal dreamlands are often venues for heartfelt joyousness and celebration where brides are given the opportunity of jubilant bonding with friends and family.
A Celebration of Love
At Winnie Couture, brides and their loved ones create lasting memories with lots of love, laughter, and champagne toasts! Each bride has her own unique story to tell, and Winnie thrives on highlighting these special moments.
It’s a place for brides to share priceless memories with their loved ones—a place to reconnect with friends and family who are brought together by the exciting task of finding “The One”. Where best friends are the most supportive entourage and where loving parents witness their precious daughter blossoming into the beautiful bride, they have always envisioned her to be. A truly magical moment that fills the room with joy when the bride sees her reflection: a blushing bride in her dream dress with tears of happiness as she says yes to not only the gown, but to a new chapter of her life.
“These are the unique moments that keep us going at Winnie Couture: the celebration of brides and the love they have for their friends, family, and themselves,” says Winnie.
High Velocity Trajectory
The idea of the highly successful brand emerged, as so many startups do, from a gap that Winnie identified in the market when she got engaged to Chris and began to hunt for the perfect wedding gown to suit her style. After a long despairing search, Winnie created her own gorgeous dress. She married her life partner Chris Lee in 1999 and inspired by the success of her designing experiments, decided to help other women find their dream dress.
Winnie Couture was co-founded by Winnie and her husband Chris in 2001. Thereafter, driven by passion and devotion to the bridal fashion industry, they’ve gained continuous success. After just a few short seasons, the couple has positioned the Winnie Couture brand as one of the fastest growing, most-in-demand bridal collections across the country and in just less than five years, their wedding dresses have become available in over 150 stores. Winnie’s dresses have earned a reputation for uncompromising craftsmanship. This devotion to quality has gained her a global following and made her one of the most respected designers in the wedding industry.
Winnie Couture wedding dresses are distributed through Winnie Couture flagship stores and finest retailers throughout the world. The brand is now regarded as a global leader in the bridal and couture fashion industry, continuously developing a range of unique and luxurious wedding attire that is consistent with the brand’s values. The brand has expanded across North America, providing services in various cities like San Francisco, Nashville, Charlotte, Boston, Chicago, Beverly Hills, Atlanta, Houston, and Dallas.
Featured in prominent high-fashion publications such as People, Forbes, Harper’s Bazaar, Brides, The Knot, Modern Luxury, The New York Times, Glamour, etc and frequent appearances on National TV shows and Hollywood films, Winnie’s profoundly feminine gowns are known for their immaculate craftwork and impeccable fit. Aside from the bridal collection, Winnie’s meticulously luxurious red-carpet designs have become favorites amongst industry insiders, Hollywood celebrities and fashionistas. Influencers around the globe have visited their flagships and documented their experiences and their weddings through Instagram, Tik Tok, Facebook and YouTube, all of which have fuelled Winnie Couture’s explosive growth, taking them from a single shop to hundreds of authorized retailers, eight flagship stores and multiple franchise locations.
