All our gowns are designed and created in our Sydney studio by our talented team who are dedicated to their craft, all who strongly believe a brides gown should represent her style, personality and make a statement on the day, be a stand out and forever a lasting memory of how special the day was.

Guipurean is for the strong, mysterious yet feminine woman with impeccable taste, with a strong desire to be distinct and statuesque in her own style, she will not settle for average. A GUIPUREAN BRIDE is unique, refined and elegant.

Our philosophy, to design, develop and create wedding gowns that are special, rememberable and focus on originality in replace of offering a “uniform” or seen and done before. It may be a design detail, a unique lace, a custom embroidery or a combination of all that give our gowns soul and individualism.

DESIGNER PROFILE

Designer and founder of Guipurean, Cassandra, has been designing and creating wedding dresses and special gowns for more than a decade, developing from her unwavering love of textile, design  and attention to details from an early age.

Graduating in Fashion & Textile Design after completing a BA major Art history, Cassandra worked as a hand beader in the bridal industry while simultaneously she began creating unique one off gowns for private orders and sample pieces in which to develop and refine her skill using high quality textiles, custom embroideries and bespoke finishes.

WHAT IS IN THE NAME?

Guipurean (pronounced gur-pure-ean)

From the lace ‘guipure’, intricate in design, it has its origins in history as a luxury textile.

The word guipure is derived from old French in the 19th century, “guiper” meaning to cover with silk, a luxury fibre that features dominantly in many Guipurean creations
