Eliza Jane Howell

Gill Harvey named Eliza Jane Howell after her grandmother, who was also a fashion designer.

These gowns are all hand beaded and sometimes come with extra embellishments of hand embroidery.

Each dress is individually made by combining exquisite traditional and modern beading techniques and patterns. It's this blend of old and new that makes an Eliza Jane Howell dress truly unique and an heirloom piece to be passed on to the next generation.

In 2016 Gill Harvey for Eliza Jane Howell was voted Best Bridal Designer by the first ever UK Wedding Awards and in addition won Best British Bridal Designer in the British Wedding Awards.


During 17th & 18th centuries it was the custom for the sons and daughters of the gentry to go on the Grand Tour. The paintings and fabrics from that era are the inspiration for this dress. A masterful fusion of contemporary style and classic sensibility.

Naples encompasses show stopping British design and features dazzling beadwork.



Adorned in understated but mesmerising pearl sequins,  this designer gown is simple & elegant in style. Vintage inspired jewel work to the hips and shoulders evoke independent minded, flapper era glamour.


The Uffizi Gallery in Florence was an essential stop on the "Grand Tour"of Europe, a rite of passage for the sons and daughters of gentry in the 17th and 18th centuries. Combining the luxury & distinction of this era with embellishments that evoke the vintage glamour of the 1920s, this designer gown is eye catching and elegant. With a delicate, figure hugging silhouette and show stopping exposed shoulders, it is a wedding dress that won't be easily forgotten.
