Bridal Designer: Grace Lee of Lee-Lim
After working under CFDA award-winning designers such as 3.1 Phillip Lim and Robert Geller, GRACE LEE launched her eponymous bridal line in Chicago last year. LEE-LIM is at once structured and dreamy. She credits her continuous love of moody and ethereal colors from the Romanticism period as her main source of inspiration. Her gowns often feature minimal cuts with exceptional details and draping inspired by designers like Ricardo Tisci, and the nostalgia we feel for the 20’s. From afar Grace’s gowns may look simple, but up close intricate layers of different silks, laces, and tulle are pieced together to give each piece movement and life. For Grace’s upcoming collection, she looked to rocker babe PJ Harvey as inspiration and her album “Is This Desire?” Rock on, indeed.
