Rosalynn Win is a name you need to know if you’re looking for that perfect bridal gown and artisan accessories. Veils, belts, silk garters and even Christening gowns…. You’re bound to be enchanted just as I was when I recently spent time with the lovely Sydney designer.
With a background in fashion design and theatre costume, Rosalynn launched her couture wedding label in 2009 with the opening of her boutique in Paddington. During that time her gowns were featured in countless magazines and on the red carpet and she gained recognition as a talented designer when she was awarded the Couture Designer of the Year by WEOA.

She spent six years in her Paddington boutique before deciding to add an extra dimension to her business and expand to include an online boutique.
“I found that there is a gap in the market for beautiful veils, belts and silk garters that are of high quality and are able to be passed on for generations or to be kept as one-of-a-kind mementos.”
She has now expanded into these very things.

Spending time with the designer, I learnt that a Rosalynn Win veil is made from the softest tulles with just the right amount of gathering and sheerness. For brides who prefer embellishment, there is a gorgeous selection of fine lace trims to fuller French lace scalloping or unique hand-beaded patterns to choose from. All veils are attached to strong metal combs that can be moulded to suit all hair types and styles.
It’s not fancy photography in this next image, it’s one of Rosalynn’s veils flying in the background.
In recent times belts have become a much sought after accessory to compliment bridal gowns. A great way to accentuate curves or add that finishing touch, Rosalynn Win belts have been exclusively designed from initial pattern to beading details using the finest of Swarovski crystal which means that many of her belts are one-off creations.
For the bride looking for a quality and personalised silk garter, look no further. With the option of having your name and wedding date embroidered onto the garter, it makes for a wonderful keepsake. Embroidering options come in soft silver, gold or even powder blue for that perfect and discrete something blue. Brides also have the option to have a sample of their wedding gown lace hand sewn and embellished as a feature on the garter too.
Behind the scenes when I shot with Rosalynn Win, Natasha Foster and Kristine.
Kristine is photographed here in the “Montreux” gown with jewellery by Tessarella House. For the make-up, I emphasised glowing skin and added a glossy winged liner against an almost nude eye. Hair was softly curled and worn loose.
