Trash Couture Bridal Gowns

By Sophia Hussain
What happens with the fabric remains from luxury fashion design houses in Paris?  One designers “trash” becomes re-invented into couture fairytale-like bridal gowns.
Danish designer Ann Wiberg founded her avant-garde label Trash Couture “as a pro-environment couture brand”.  She creates unique wedding gowns using natural silks and vintage cotton lace, combined with leftover fabrics from exclusive fashion houses in Europe.  

Trash Couture designs use up to 50% off-cut materials, and the vintage materials are used as raw material. The entire collection is hand-sewn in the company’s own atelier in Copenhagen.  What a fabulous way for brides to add a bit of luxury to their perfect day.


Although Trash Couture bridal gowns are most likely only worn for one day, like most couture designers, Wiberg creates evening wear that can be worn for various  other life celebrations.  


Trash Couture gowns have been worn by the likes of Penelope Cruz, Rachel Weisz, and Cyndi Lauper – and exclusive designs have been created for Desperate Housewives and The Devil Wears Prada.  

Who knows? Perhaps a Prada remain has been given a new life in one of Wiberg’s bridal couture gowns too.
