Presenting a Luxe Rethink on Traditional BridalwearBased in West London, Pretty Heritage is a unique fusion brand that offers luxury evening and bridalwear. Having launched in 2016 with the Bohemian Rani collection, the label celebrates youth and individualism, working with the likes of Sikh Influencer and body-positive champion Harnaam Kaur (pictured) on its campaigns. Inspired by designer and owner, Monita's love of travel and art, in addition to her dual heritage as a British Asian. Having been exposed to multiple cultures, this inspired Monita to craft a fusion line which explores cuts and prints divergent to the traditional ethnic wear. Her latest collection, Elope – Love Her But Leave Her Wild, conveys the brand ethos brilliantly. Monita explains: “The fabrics in the new collection are fluid and soft, creating rebellious silhouettes. Today’s brides want to be themselves and express who they are and what they stand for.” Offering ready-to-wear as well as bespoke bridal and designs for other members of the bridal party, Pretty Heritage employs a team of highly experienced designers and technicians across the UK as well as in India. Have something specific in mind? The label offers a Bespoke Family Collections service, which allows you to collaborate creatively with Monita to create your perfect Big Day wardrobe, for yourself, your groom and your families if you wish. It’s an easy process, starting with talking over ideas before the designs go into development, and finally the finished outfits.
