Every woman dreams of a fairytale wedding. And for over 10 years, Ted Wu has been transforming blushing brides into radiant princesses.
Inspired by the simple beauty of everyday life, he weaves his magic into intricately embroidered gowns that are in turn elegant yet pretty. A lush garden, sweet-smelling flowers, or even a fluttering butterfly - all these can spark off vivid ideas for his trademark exquisite needlework designs.
Even as a young boy, Ted knew he wanted to be a fashion designer. His dressmaker mother was a big influence, and at age 13, Ted was already designing and sewing. His first job was with a made-to-measure boutique, and this spun off years of garnering experience in tailoring gowns for all body shapes and sizes.
In 1995, Ted Wu the bridal boutique was born. Today, the name is synonymous with stunning bridal gowns, fine embroidery work and quality fitting.
A classic Ted Wu gown features his forte of finely handcrafted Peranakan embroidery and beading against a lustrous ivory canvas of duchess satin, dupion silk or dreamy silk organza. The lines of the gown are kept uncomplicated so the embroidery can shine. An asymmetrical A-line dress, for instance, cuts a simple yet interesting silhouette and draws the eye with a flourish of hand-sewn silver threads, crystals and glass beads.
It's the perfect couture line for the elegant bride.
Evening gowns see a more dramatic palette such as fuchsia, royal purple, lime green and aquamarine-all of which are often inspired by the richly coloured traditional Peranakan kebayas. Again there is a play on silhouettes to suit any body shape, from structured lines in sleek Thai silk to soft, silky layers of French lace. Gowns are grand entrance-stunners with strong colour contrasts, opulent embroidery and extremely detailed Peranakan beading. Why, they're almost like priceless works of art.
For the young, modern bride, Ted Wu's Periwinkle line is sleek, fun and versatile. The focus here is on separates you can mix and match for a variety of looks. Like a sexy corset-styled top paired with tailored pants and a shawl. Having a beach party wedding? You'll find something playful and whimsical to make a splash in.
Ted Wu's Men's Wear offers just as much style for an equally well-suited groom. Choose from smart, snazzy suits in lightweight wool, Thai and dupion silk or luxe Indian and Chinese brocade.
At Ted Wu's, there will be no compromise on quality. Whether it's a design from the exclusive ready-to-wear collection or a made-to-measure customised piece, both bride- and groom-to-be can be assured of a perfect fit right up to the big day. After all, for Ted, his greatest satisfaction is when your fairytale becomes reality.
