As part of our $60,000 Win Your Dream Wedding 2015 prize package, our lucky bride receives a luxurious robe by Willa & Mae. We spoke to the label's founders, sisters Emma Clark and Rana Reuther.
Why should a bride look no further than Willa & Mae?
Willa & Mae garments are designed to make you feel beautiful and sexy, which is how every bride wants to feel. They’re designed to flatter and are cut from 100 per cent silk, which feels luxurious on your skin – and helps set the mood for the honeymoon!
Why is a wedding the perfect time to treat yourself to something this special?
As a bride, this day is all about you. While you may only wear your wedding dress once, you can wear your Willa & Mae garment over and over, and each time remember the happiest day of your life.
What was the inspiration behind your latest collection?
We went to Fiji last year and loved the blues of the ocean and bright colours of the coral reef and fish. Holidays are all about relaxing and we wanted to bring that feel to our new range. We also give a subtle nod to the seductive sensibilities of Newton’s portraits through the chemises and camisoles, with plunging V-front and -back necklines, tulip-hem shorts and robes that feature waterfall hems.
What do you love about designing sleepwear?
The ability to design and create garments that make women feel good and look amazing. We want them to feel comfortable relaxing at home, regardless of who’s around. We also love being able to work with beautiful fabrics.
What are some of your most popular designs and shades for brides?
The great thing about Willa & Mae is we have a colour to suit everyone. Our neutral range consists of noir, white and nude, and the new colours of aqua and coral complement all skin tones. For brides, our robe is the perfect garment to wear while you’re getting your hair and makeup done, and can then be worn while you’re relaxing on your honeymoon.
