Amanda intuitively started designing clothes based on a personal passion to create utterly beautiful clothes that women love to wear. Her look is calculatedly understated but alluring.
The Amanda Wakeley woman is ageless - she has an attitude to dressing rather than being a specific age. She wears the clothes because they are sexy yet not overt.... they are body enhancing yet comfortable.... they are relevant yet appropriate to her lifestyle.... she has an enviable ease.
Day dressing is luxe sportif, evening is contemporary glamour, always with a luxurious use of fabrics, perfection of cut and attention to craftmanship.
The Sposa Bridal collection offers contemporary glamour, is always body enhancing with a luxurious use of fabrics, perfection of cut and attention to craftmanship.
