Welcome Libelula to Girl Meets Dress!



Inspired by vintage shapes, LIBELULA‘s head designer Sophie Cranston creates beautiful colours, feminine and delicious dresses, from long evening gowns to mid length dresses.  Libelula is fast becoming the label to watch. This brand is known for its in-house designed, vibrant prints and use of luxurious fabrics. Remember when the magazines went crazy and Cranston was the fashion name on everyone’s lips thanks to rumours that she was going to be designing The Duchess of Cambridge wedding dress.

The Duchess of Cambridge has worn Libelula on more than one occasion, most memorably when she chose a black velvet Dulwich coat with diamante clasp for the wedding of Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Louise Stourton. Then more recently, to Coworth Park, near Ascot, to watch hubby Prince William and Prince Harry play polo. For this day out she choose the silk Rebecca dress from Libélula’s Autumn Winter 2011 collection – and it is still selling today! The printed knee-length frock in a summery sea-green hue with ladylike buttons leading from the belted waist up to the high stand collar – is the perfect style for a day event with wedges, or an evening occasion with high heels.

Cranston studied fashion design and honed her skills in the backrooms in Saville Row and Bellville Sassoon. She then won the prestigious Designer of the Year Award at Graduate Fashion Week in 1999, an accolade shared with such luminaries as John Galliano, Christopher Bailey and Alexander McQueen. She then went on to work for McQueen himself, and next set up Temperley in 2000 with Alice Temperley. After 2 years she decided to follow her dreams and went to the South of Spain to learn Flamenco and Spanish and it was here in a small white washed village in Andalucia that Libelula (Dragonfly in Spanish) was born.

As the label grew it made more sense to move the headquarters to the UK and it can now be found in many of the leading boutiques around the country, and also internationally. Cranston’s  studio is based in Hampshire and she now juggles dresses with motherhood and family life.

Libelula now also offers wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses in their signature shapes and fabrics.
