Gloucestershire-based fashion designer, Beatrice von Tresckow, is renowned for her use of bold colours, luxurious fabrics and exquisite beading and embroidery. But it's sustainability that is of the utmost importance to the designer.

'We champion slow fashion and are passionate about being an environmentally- and socially-conscious brand. Rather than follow fickle trends, we want customers to invest in our garments, not just for years to come, but also for generations to come', said von Tresckow.

Located in the Montpellier area of Cheltenham, von Tresckow's couture designs offer the very best in formal occasion wear and wedding attire – and with a fashion career spanning over 30 years, her knowledge on dressing for wedding season is second-to-none.

Von Tresckow's expertly curated wedding edit is a collection of exquisite garments, perfect for the mother of the bride or groom or an honoured wedding guest.

Think tailored jackets paired with a coordinating dress or flared trousers, elegant maxi dresses that drape effortlessly to the floor and silk slingback kitten heels that offer both style and comfort.

'Always choose something which makes you sparkle — sumptuous colours and striking elegance. And whether jackets, dresses or trousers, comfort is paramount. Ensure that and you will be able to style it again and again in the future and the garment will always bring back the happiest of memories,' said the designer on choosing an investment piece for a special occasion.

Von Tresckow's designs draw influence from a childhood spent in India, Kenya and Afghanistan, with her eye-catching pieces featuring jewel-coloured taffeta and satin, delicately embroidered chiffon and embellished fine wool, among many other luxury materials and craftsmanship.

The team proudly supports local businesses both at home and abroad — von Tresckow's designs have been made in the same workshop in India for the past 26 years, where it employs third-generation families and cherishes ancient skills and specialist craftsmanship.

Von Tresckow was also the winner of SoGlos's Cheltenham Festival Shop Window competition back in March 2023, with judges in unanimous agreement that her striking display of rainbow silks a worthy winner of this year's top spot.
