Introduction to the Kirei Collection

Rolling in Roses are a small-scale British bridal label with a focus on thoughtful design and high-end craftsmanship. They have launched a new collection of wedding dresses and we’re delighted to showcase some of their stunning creations, designed for those brides “who walk to the beat of their own drum.” 

They use fabrics that are gentle to the earth, dressmaking techniques that are traditional and refined, and their designs are a blend of the classic and the avant-garde. “We are not fast fashion.”

The new Kirei Collection of wedding dresses and bridal separates from Rolling in Roses is inspired by designer Hayley’s honeymoon in Japan. “I fell in love with how the peacefulness and tranquillity of Japanese design can be seen in everything, from ceramics and print to gardens and architecture. The intention to keep things as simple as possible with no unnecessary or frivolous detail and let the basic form and essence of things speak for themselves.”

If you are looking for modern, ethical bridalwear that doesn’t compromise on style or sustainability, are a vegan bride, or planning an eco-friendly wedding, we are sure you’ll love this new collection.

Rolling in Roses is a Recommended Supplier of The Natural Wedding Company directory. Find out more about them here.

Ethical credentials

Rolling In Roses pieces are distinguished by their standard of workmanship and luxurious eco-friendly fabrics. Hayley and her team are proud to maintain traditional couture techniques and contemporary design, for brides who are looking for an alternative to mass-produced, mainstream bridalwear.

All their gowns are individually made to order by a tiny team of seamstresses in York, where every single piece is designed, drafted, cut, and constructed.  This small-scale production means they can always guarantee the exceptional finish of their dresses and achieve artisan quality workmanship with all its divine hand-finished details.  No production lines or faceless factories here; each dress is made from start to finish by one expert artisan who knows the bride’s name and wedding date, and who personally takes care of every last detail. 

“I’m over the moon to say that 94.8% of the fabrics used in this collection have sustainable certification; whether that’s organic, closed-loop, vegan, biodegradable, compostable, or recycled, meaning our materials are produced in ways that protect the environment, are low-carbon, protect natural resources like forests and water, and are cruelty-free and ethically made. And even the 5.2% of fabrics we use without certification are natural biodegradable fabrics, so we’re incredibly proud.” – Hayley Neil, Rolling in Roses designer.

Introduction to the wedding dresses

Below you’ll find details and photos of our top 10 dresses from the new Rolling in Roses ethical wedding dress collection. If you’d like to book an appointment to view and try any of these dresses, please contact Rolling in Roses directly via their booking page.

The Bureiku Dress

What Rolling in Roses says about The Bureiku Dress: “This striking gown is both showstopping and comfortable. Sophisticated long sleeves extend past the wrist and are crowned by pleats at the shoulder to match the folds at the neck and hip. The fabric has a slight stretch which helps it mould to the body and flatter the figure without restricting movement.”

Made from luxury heavyweight organic Italian crêpe, which is a perfect vegan alternative to silk.

The Daisuki Dress

What Rolling in Roses says about The Daisuki Dress: “Highly flattering and supremely comfortable, this gown is an understated beauty, with subtle and intriguing details. Delicate corded straps wrap around one another to create a crossover back, whose angles are echoed in the placement of the seams and darts of the dress itself.”

Made from luminous ‘Naia’ satin, which is an ethical, vegan alternative to silk, made from fibres taken from pine and eucalyptus forests which are sustainably managed to ensure no deforestation of ancient and endangered woodland.

The Komorebi Dress

What Rolling in Roses says about The Komorebi Dress: “‘Komorebi’ is an untranslatable Japanese word meaning ‘the sunlight that filters through the leaves of the forest’. The sleeves and back bodice panels are left sheer to display the lace against the skin, and the back is fully exposed, providing the perfect counterpoint to the chic high neck and long sleeves. Complete with killer fitted skirt and split to mid-thigh at the centre front, which then flares out gently to create a subtle puddle train.”

The 100% cotton lace fabric is made the traditional way on century-old Leavers lace machines by a ninth-generation family of lace makers in Nottingham.

The Nejire Dress

What Rolling in Roses says about The Nejire Dress: “This dress is chic, contemporary, and sculptural. The bodice and sleeves are crafted from a single piece of fabric, expertly manipulated and twisted to create soft drapes and folds. Cut wide at the neckline to display the décolletage, it fastens with a single button of Japanese mother-of-pearl at the nape of the neck. The fitted skirt has flattering diagonal darts at the back, a split to mid-thigh at the front, and an understated puddle train.”

Made from organic Italian crêpe and organic bamboo charmeuse.

The Shiki Dress

What Rolling in Roses says about The Shiki Dress: “Plunging necklines, dramatic sleeves, and beautiful movement. Gathered poet sleeves end just above the wrist bones, and the finest of spaghetti straps lays across the nape of the neck and holds the deep V necklines in place. The half-circle skirt is cut smoothly from the waist and skims the hips softly, flattering all figures.”

Made with British organic peace silk, a chemical-free British-produced satin has the lowest possible carbon footprint; even the Mulberry leaves, which are the silkworms’ only food, are grown right here in England.

The Shiruku Dress

What Rolling in Roses says about The Shiruku Dress: “A contemporary square neckline extends over the shoulders to fall into a soft cowl at the nape of the neck. Gathered three-quarter sleeves and interestingly places seams lend subtle details to this deceptively simple dress.”

Made with organic British peace silk, a chemical-free British-produced satin has the lowest possible carbon footprint; even the Mulberry leaves, which are the silkworms’ only food, are grown right here in England.

The Unaji Jumpsuit

What Rolling in Roses says about The Unaji Jumpsuit: “Simple but striking. A plunging V neckline is balanced by wide kimono-cut sleeves, and a fitted waistline is offset by the movement of wide-legged trousers. The nape of the neck is framed by the back neckline fastened with a single button of Japanese mother-of-pearl, and the back is slashed to the waist to show a brazen glimpse of skin.”

Made from beautifully soft eco-friendly satin with a subtle sheen, which is a perfect vegan alternative to silk.

Also in the new collection but not featured here are The Kumihimo Dress, The Kawaii Dress, The Yugen Dress, and The Koshiire Dress.
