Mori Lee designs began over 60 years ago. Since 1985, Madeline Gardner has been the designer behind the Mori Lee wedding dress and wedding gown collection. Gardner went to school at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Mori Lee was one of the first to make wedding dresses and gowns available to all women.
Mori Lee strives to meet elegant classic designs and modern styles. Mori Lee is always looking toward the future and knows that women just want to “to feel pretty, both inside and out” on their wedding days. The classic silhouettes of the Mori Lee collection include mostly ball gowns and trumpet style dresses. However, Mori Lee has four other lines under the Mori Lee name.The Blu collection by Mori Lee is very contemporary. Blu has impeccable detail and focuses on femininity. Using quality fabrics, such as tulle and lace, and adorned with unique design elements like lace appliqué, these dresses are soft and beautiful. Many come in light pink, or blush, as well.
AF Couture by Mori Lee is elegant and sophisticated. These dresses include intricate beading and embroidery. The silhouettes of this line are mostly trumpet style, with a few ball gowns thrown in. The form fitting style of these gowns and dresses are very feminine and show of the bride’s figure.Julietta is another line designed by Mori Lee’s Madeline Gardner. This plus size line of gowns and dresses contains the same design elements as all of the other Mori Lee collections. Beautiful fabric, pretty embroidery or beading, and soft feminine touches make up this line of dresses.
And finally, the Voyage line by Mori Lee is for the daring bride that wants to add some excitement to her wedding attire. These dresses are very contemporary. Some of the bodices are elaborately beaded and seemingly unattached to the skirts, some bodices are longer than usual, and some are designed with delicate lace overlay. A few of the dresses are tea length while some are shorter in the front than the back. These dresses are definitely not traditional, but they are stunning.
