London-based label Self-Portrait was founded in 2013 by Han Chong. The womenswear brand is best known for their occasionwear, producing beautiful and intricate designs which have been seen on the likes of Meghan Markle, Priyanka Chopra and Reece Witherspoon.
Across ready-to-wear, bridal and childrenswear collections, Self-Portrait is effortlessly feminine with a distinctive modern edge. The brand was propelled to fame with the launch of their first dress, the Azaelea, which was created from cut-out guipure lace, taking a contemporary approach to traditional lace and reimagining the material for a modern audience. From here, the brand became renowned for its use of feminine accents- from lace to ruffles to floral prints. Soft fabrics meet sculptural details for a high fashion edge, seen in dramatic puff sleeves, bold box pleating and elegant tiered skirts.
Although known for their formal wear in the shape of sheer ribbon-lace midi dresses and delicate chiffon maxi dresses, Self-Portrait also offers party-ready styles and pieces for the everyday. Playful mini dresses in jewel tones, ribbed knit dresses and puff-sleeve tops are versatile and unique, sure to turn heads no matter the occasion. Flowing cotton day dresses and pastel-toned knits are perfect for daily dressing. Across intricate evening gowns, stunning midi-dresses and glamorous cocktail dresses, Self-Portrait is opulent and distinctive time and time again.
With a flagship store in London, Self-Portrait stores are also found across Asia, in cities such as Bangkok, Shanghai and Taipei. Their collections can be accessed online, through the brand’s website, as well as via Harrods, My Theresa and Matches Fashion.
