As the latest designer to join the Eternal Bridal family, we’re taking you inside LPG’s atelier to meet the one-and-only, Lee Petra Grebenau!
Discover Lee’s biggest source of inspiration, the signature she leaves behind in each of her wedding gowns, what she likes to snack on while designing, and more.
How did you start your career in bridal fashion design?
As a child, I grew up in my mother’s atelier. I used to come every day after school and see all the seamstresses and work with a pattern maker. So you could say I grew up into it and I love it.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Inspiration finds me everywhere I go, but I have a big collection of art books and history books where I find most of my inspiration.
What do you love most about designing wedding dresses?
As a designer, I can express my love to couture in bridal dresses. I love the craftsmanship, the details, the embroideries, and the fabrics.
What makes an LPG gown so unique?
We use the finest quality materials out there, we create mannequins for each bride, and we create dresses made-to-measure. I think these are all really special and make our brand very unique.
Do you have a favourite LPG gown?
It’s really hard for me to say which dress I love the most, but I would say our latest collection, ‘Eternal Flame’ is my favourite.
Do you leave your signature on each design and if so, how?
In every dress, I create low corsets which make the body look like a perfect shape.
Describe an LPG bride.
An LPG Bride knows what she wants, she is self confident, and appreciates quality.
Quick fire round:
Pearls or crystals?
Lace or tulle?
Favourite artist or song to listen to while designing?
I love Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls.
One word to describe the LPG brand?
Big train or big veil?
Aline or fitted?
Favourite snack while designing?
I love to snack Skippy Peanut Butter with a spoon.
