in the studio with verena von pufendorf

“Yes!” That’s what I thought when I first saw the wedding dress in Verena von Pufendorf’s studio.

Now scroll down to see what I mean, then come back up here, because I need to tell you more about it.

Verena designed that wedding dress for herself and she told me that when she put it on that day, her nerves settled immediately. Today, she keeps it in her studio to show customers who are considering ordering a wedding dress from her. I don’t know about you, but I think that dress alone is a pretty convincing argument to get married.

In case you have no plans to get married, Verena designs a whole range of other dresses, all equally as stunning. I had been following her as a designer for a while and I’m so glad I finally took the chance to visit her in her Berlin studio to see her collection up close. She adds new styles every season, from that showstopper in the picture just below to cool everyday dresses, like the one she’s wearing herself, a short velvet dress with capped sleeves that she’s just added to her collection. The designs are made-to-measure and she has them produced in Germany. You can buy them from her online shop, as well as complimentary garments, but I think you really need to see them up close and feel them. The silks she uses are light as air and the detailing on the clothes is quite incredible, from hand-died feathers from the 1920s to the lace she orders from France.

I really hope Verena opens her own shop soon. Until then, you can see her collection here. And then quickly make an appointment.

      Hahaha, ja, vielleicht sollte man Ausdrucke von dem Kleid ganz zufällig überall in der Wohnung liegen lassen…

      “Musst du immer so viel ausdrucken? Die Farbpatrone ist schon wieder leer!”

    Ich hatte die große Freude den Traum aus Stoff und Schnitt an meiner Freundin zu bewundern. Verena steckt wahnsinnig viel Zeit und Liebe in jedes einzelne Detail, was sich mehr als bezahlt macht. Jedes Stück ist ein Unikat und einfach wunderschön.
