When and how did you get your start as a designer?
I had spent 7 years in fashion designing ready-to-wear in Paris and loved seeing my creations for the everyday, but after making my own wedding gown, I knew it was the next step in my career. I instantly felt inspired by the fabrics and loved being able to create a gown with more of my own style. The dress was romantic and bold, and I was able to dance all night. I was comfortable but it also felt so special. I want all brides to feel the same way I did that day. My hope was to bring a more relaxed, yet fashion-forward approach to bridal and to create gowns that fit the unique style of each of our brides.
Describe the rue de seine bride.
The Rue De Seine bride dances to the beat of their own drum. They are looking for something unique, flattering, and super romantic. When I take the collection on the road, our brides and I are so happy to have found each other.

Where do you find design inspiration?
Travel has always been my main source of inspiration. I want to share what I have experienced and seen through my work. The beautiful mix of cultures, architecture, and people will always be woven into the heart of every collection. The beauty of this world never ceases to amaze me.
What's your best shopping advice for our Lovelies?
When looking for the perfect gown, try on the unexpected. It will be love or hate, but at least you can tick off those styles that are constantly popping up in your Instagram feed.
About Rue De Seine
Living in Paris, Rue de Seine founder and designer Michele Corty was constantly inspired by the effortless bohemian style of Saint-Germain-des-Près, and its free spirited residents. After marrying the love of her life on Rue de Seine, a street humming with creativity, artistic energy, passion and art, Michele moved back to New Zealand and started Rue. All production takes place in-house. From initial concept and lace design to the final gown, the Auckland Atelier is where our designers, cutters, machinists and quality controllers work with the utmost care and love for their craft. Each Rue de Seine dress is cut singularly and is constructed from start to finish by the same seamstress, this helps to ensure consistency and the same high standard of finishing across every garment. Every lace used in a Rue de Seine gown is designed in-house and is exclusive to Rue de Seine, ensuring Michele and her Design Team can continue to create unique, fashion forward gowns that embody the bohemian spirit.
