Life is made up of big and small moments. From birthdays to weddings, graduations to nights out with the gang, celebrating special events with loved ones is one of the greatest simple pleasures there is. On such occasions, the right outfit can take an already memorable night and make it unforgettable. Brazilian designer Martha Medeiros specializes in making gorgeous, one of a kind dresses for all the times you most want to cherish.
Inspired by nature and fueled by passion, Martha Medeiros is responsible for bringing handmade lace into the modern spotlight. Since the eighteenth century, lace has been a signifier of wealth and status. It became popular in Europe due to its beauty, elegance, and rarity. There’s a reason for that rareness as well: it’s a delicate, convoluted material that takes hours and incredible creativity to make.
With the advent of sewing machines, it became easier and less expensive to produce, but Medeiros believes in putting in the time and love required to hand craft this feminine, intricate material, which is a traditional craft for Brazilian women. It’s one of many things that sets her apart from other designers. Brazilian “Renascença” lace gives Medeiros the opportunity to employ underprivileged women and improve their lives. Impoverished women make lace for her gorgeous designs and gain financial independence in the process. It’s truly humanitarian work.
Her elaborate wedding dresses are highly sought after by brides looking to make a splash on their big day. Medeiros’s wedding dresses are unforgettable and truly showcase her passion, taste, and dedication to making women feel special when it truly matters.
But lace isn’t just for wedding dresses! Jessica Alba and Beyoncé have given this designer the thumbs up and have been seen at red carpet events wearing her breath taking designs. Always feminine and in touch with today’s trends, these gowns are not only technically profound, but they require personal skill, originality, a point of view, and the willingness to put in time and effort to make a truly unique piece. Make your next special occasion unforgettable with a one of a kind gown by Martha Medeiros.
