Amanda Wakeley is one of the country’s best-loved luxury British brands, and the company sells a range of designs that epitomise Wakeley’s ‘clean glam’ signature fashion style. A firm favourite of celebrities across the world, the brand specialises in designing cocktail, evening and bridal dresses, with a focus on creating a simple, uncomplicated look – featuring designs that flatter the female form.

From Model to Designer

Originally, Wakeley worked as a model in New York, before returning to London to open her flagship boutique store in the heart of Chelsea. Regardless of the fact that she received no formal fashion design education, Wakeley’s designs were swiftly snapped up by celebrities and royals alike, including Princess Diana. These days, celebrity admirers of Wakeley’s designs include Naomi Campbell, Jennifer Lopez, Kourtney Kardashian and Christina Applegate.

Simple Evening Style

Amanda Wakeley’s designs generally veer towards evening and special occasion-wear, with sculpted cocktail dresses, and simple, flowing evening dresses. Generally speaking, her clothing uses only one or two shades of colour, allowing the natural texture and form of the fabric to steal the show, and her designs often focus on accentuating the female figure, with curve-hugging shapes and elegant draping.

However, in addition to her dresses, Wakeley also designs a wide range of tops, skirts, coats and jackets and trousers. Many of these garments are well suited for casual occasions or for wearing in the office. She also has a bridal brand called Sposa, which features sophisticated floor-length bridal gowns.

Luxury British Brand Style

In addition to her range of women’s clothing and bridal gowns, Wakeley also designs a wide range of high-end accessories. These include elegant shoulder bags; clutches and totes; bold, contemporary jewellery; scarves; belts and even accessories for pets.
