Chatting With The Experts: As One Weds
Born out of the desire to provide alternative designs for the unconventional bride, As One Weds aims to redefine bridal accessories and change our perspective of what brides should (or shouldn't) wear on their wedding day. Naturally, we couldn't help but dedicate some time to chat with the team behind the brand and we have a feeling you're gonna love each and every piece. Curious? Keep reading then!
Q: What elements of everyday life inspire you each time you’re curating a new collection? Are there any other artists whose work sometimes inspires you, too?
A: Everyday, we are inspired by the people around us, who help influence each of the collections we curate. We love celebrating the little nuances and traits people have that set them apart from each other and we always aim to reflect that in our collections. Each of our pieces has its own distinct identity that we believe helps reflect the unique personalities of our shoppers. Choosing pieces that are fresh and offbeat allows wearers to express themselves in ways like never before, allowing them to stand out from the monotonous bridal crowd. While the bridal scene continues to offer the same familiar fluff, we are ransacking the other end of the spectrum by offering a contemporary edge that celebrates all things eclectic and stylish. All the designers we carry are also so good at what they do, so they certainly help excite and inspire the forward movements of our vision and collections.
Q: What is an ‘anti-bride’ for you? What’s so different about her?
A: An “anti-bride” for us is someone who is not afraid to be different and craves originality. She is a raw spirit who is able to see past the sea of flower crowns, through the ruffles and bows, and isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of traditional bridal. She’s here to create her own rules of what’s “in” and is not restricted by trends or norms.
Q: What is your most favourite piece of your current collection and why?
A: Our favorite pieces from our current collection are the Beacon Studs that come in both Antique Silver and Black. They are an evolution of the statement earring and feature an edgy, modern silhouette from Art Deco influences. We love that it also comes in black for those who dare to venture a little farther. They also easily transition from the wedding day to life after, so you can keep wearing and loving them for years after the big day.
