About Our Client
Hermione de Paula embodies a world where the exotic meets the traditional English country garden. Romantic surrealist prints and a look-closer approach to detail underpin her design philosophy, be it through one of her now classic kimono robes or couture embroidered gowns. There is always a sense of the bespoke, the hand-drawn, English craftsmanship. The designer celebrates the flora and fauna of the landscape around us: secret messages combine with flowers in disguise and paradisiacal prints for you to find. She made her debut at London Fashion Week in 2009 and has since gone on to expand the brand into multiple lifestyle categories with a renewed focus on bespoke bridal.
