Moon River – Cathleen Jia Collection Release!


Moon River is the latest Made to Measure collection by Cathleen Jia.

The collection is true to the vintage aesthetic that Cathleen has become renowned for with her local and international brides.

Inspired by the vintage glamour of its muse Audrey Hepburn, the six gowns that make up the collection are boldly unique, timeless and elegant.

All of Cathleen’s gowns are made with love and authentically in her Melbourne studio. The craftsmanship has never been more evident than in this collection, from hand pleats, delicate beading, and hand cut 3D lace flowers – the attention to detail is second to none.

This is Cathleen’s first collection to incorporate pleats. Collaborating with Speciality Pleaters in Williamstown, one of the 2 last surviving custom pleaters in Australia, it’s an ode to the traditional craftsmanship process and is just another one of the small details that adds quality.

The six gowns that make up the collection are crafted from the highest quality silk and hand finished with perfect touches.

The range starts at $4000 and you can see them here.

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I’m crossing you in style someday.
Oh, dream maker,
you heart breaker,
wherever you’re going I’m going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world.
There’s such a lot of world to see.
We’re after the same rainbow’s end –
waiting ‘round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.
