Sanyukta Shrestha is an award winning wedding dress designer who we are so pleased to have selected to stock in the

Her unusual yet gorgeous materials make her bridal gowns even more special. We love them!
About Sanyukta Shrestha
Sanyukta takes inspiration from something or someone and then creates styles which are completely unique to her. For instance her last two collections have taken inspiration from icons such as Audrey Hepburn & Wallis Simpson. You will see some full tulle skirts and slash necks which are from the Audrey collection yet when created with the beautiful sustainable materials which Sanyukta uses we get some very fluid skirts and bodices.
The Wallis Simpson collection highlighted more sleek lines and fitted bodices, some with high necks and lots of detail.
The current collection has been designed for real Sanyukta brides.
Whoever Sanyukta’s collection is inspired by, one thing’s for certain, it will always be flexible! It’s what we at Vow love about Sanyukta’s designs – you can add a sash, chiffon overlay, lace overlay, hand beaded belt or pleated feature skirt so you can have many looks during your special wedding day…
Born in Nepal, she has been awarded best designer several times in Nepal and international beauty pageants, since the year she started her design journey at the age of 17.
A graduate of London College of fashion, she worked for bridal design and retail industry in the UK for 5 years before setting up her own label. With her fresh and beautiful approach on her design, she has brought the fresh breath of air to the British bridal industry.
Most of the fibres used in the wedding collection of hats, fascinators and accessories are wild fibres which are skilfully hand spun and hand loomed by village women in Nepal.
Through blending sustainability with her ethical believes, Sanyukta intends to create opportunities for women in this area of the world, by merging and turning their traditional skills into delicate fabrics and exquisite designs.
Sanyukta’s bridal collection goes beyond the one special occasion, they are artistically made and valued as collectable pieces of sustainably hand-made, hand woven and hand crafted products.
Each style within this exquisite collection follows ecologically green guidelines, with fabrics from ethical and fair trade certified manufacturers.
The making of each pieces is also equally considered, using beautifully tactile eco fabrics of soft hemp silk, 100% bamboo, 100% wild nettle, wild hemp, organic silk, soya, banana, 100% organic & fair-traded cotton, hand loomed in Nepal and handmade in the UK.
Sustainably sourced – Fairly traded – Ethically produced – Beautifully handmade – Desirably presented
A Tale of Sanyukta Shrestha
Beauty of the collection:
Beauty Behind: Health & Environment
‘Let’s be beautiful and create beauty around us!’
It is hard to conjecture that Sanyukta Shrestha’s luxurious and intricate bridal millinery pieces are made of a prickly plant (Nettle) from the foothills of the Himalayas. Nettle is generally not associated with luxury or wedding. However, the London based designer aims to change pre-conceptions and revolutionise the bridal industry by using these wild fibres in her designs.
The fabrics used have been specially sourced from villages in Nepal. Local villagers painstakingly collect nettle and hemp from community forests in controlled amount, so as not to adversely affect the ecological balance. Chemicals are shunned in favour of traditional bleaching agents like ash to treat the plant. The fibre is eventually hand-spun into fabrics by the villagers.
