The design, modelling, pattern making and finishing teams at company headquarters work in close collaboration, tracking market trends and paying close attention to every last tiny detail, making each piece unique.
Spectacular and elegant princess dress with a natural waist. A design with plenty of volume, crafted in mikado, with lateral folds and pockets. The thread-embroidered back showcases the majesty of the fabrics and the finely worked details, like the bow and decorative buttons. A dress with great power and character for a bride who wants to look radiant on her wedding day.
Suggestive and with personality. This mermaid dress with a natural waist, crafted in lace and tulle, hugs the silhouette, streamlining it to the maximum and enhancing the sensuality of the sweetheart neckline. A simple but powerful design that enhances the elegance of your figure, winning you over with the floral motifs that make it all possible.
Like the best magic trick ever, this mermaid style dress is fitted at the waist and creates an illusion. The illusion of an incredible body in tulle and floral motifs in thread embroidery, that create a second-skin effect at the neckline and back. The skirt with a train crafted in crepe, is fitted at the hips and opens out at the bottom providing lots of movement and vitality. The drop sleeves, also in tulle, can be combined with a spectacular tulle cape.
We have all dreamed of a dress as magical as this. A dazzling design in crepe and tulle. A mermaid dress, fitted at the waist, that hugs the body and streamlines the figure, with a halter neck decorated with gemstone appliqué around the edges, pronounced armholes, narrow diamond straps and a spectacular V back. The skirt opens out low at the back into a spectacular train in the same fabric as the dress. A unique, simple and dreamy design.
For the bride who radiates confidence, global glamour and impeccable style, there’s Martina Liana — the embodiment of exquisite couture bridal design.
The Martina Liana wedding gown collection has risen from the celebrated mind of Chief Creative Officer, Martine Harris, and our international design team to the heights of the world stage as a major international bridal fashion label.
Every cut, every embellishment, every consideration of a Martina Liana design is made with one idea in mind.
“A bridal gown is more than just something a bride will wear once. She will replay the memories of her day in her mind for years to come and pictures of her will be passed down for generations. A bride’s love story inspires us and this is why we love creating magical and unforgettable gowns,” said Martine.
This passion to create an enduring memory is exemplified in the couture craftsmanship of every Martina Liana gown.
You can see it in the way the luxurious fabrics flow as a bride glides down the aisle. In the handcrafted fit, that accentuates a womanly form. And in the heirloom quality detailing that will leave every guest in awe – and stir the heart of a husband-to-be.
“We had a vision to create a bridal fashion label that blended couture customization and quality with exquisite design. We are proud that this vision has been brought to life through Martina Liana. Each new collection is even more captivating than the last and we feel validated by the amazing response this label has received from brides across the world.”
When you select a Martina Liana creation, you wear something far more than just a wedding dress. You make a statement. One that exemplifies the style, the attitude and the elegance of the bride, and the woman, you are.
Taking inspiration from gowns of the past, this Art Deco wedding dress with beading from Martina Liana is an updated, vintage masterpiece! An extremely sparkly style, this fit-and-flare gown is designed in a beaded, scalloped-lace pattern that sculpts the body perfectly. A sweetheart neckline accentuates the bodice of this gown, and is highlighted on either side by organic-lace straps that extend to the back of the gown. A completely-open back is highlighted effortlessly with the gown’s breathtaking, long train. The back of this Art Deco wedding dress zips up beneath crystal buttons.
A style that incorporates a traditional silhouette with modern detailing, this A-line wedding dress with sparkle from Martina Liana gives you the best of both worlds! Layered lace gives just enough coverage to this bodice while remaining semi-sheer and sexy — creating a nice juxtaposition against the frothy, full skirt. From the empire waist, the lace from the bodice trickles slightly, elongating your silhouette beautifully. A mixture of bugle beading throughout the lace and sparkle tulle within the skirt gives this gown an enviable shimmer, while a horsehair trim gives it a formal, polished look. An open V highlights the back of this bodice, while lace appliques adorn the skirt and train, creating a romantic and dramatic feeling. The back of this A-line wedding dress with sparkle zips up beneath crystal buttons.
A one-of-a-kind style, this wedding dress with handcrafted lace from Martina Liana is a head-turning design. The sheer bodice of this gown is adorned with bold lace that is hand-placed to elongate the body. From the sweetheart neckline, drapey lace falls into dreamy off-the-shoulder straps. The lace from the bodice extends slightly onto the hips, creating a negative space at the front of the gown, allowing the lace to truly stand out. Just below the hips, the lace and tulle skirt extends to the ground, finished with an organic hem and subtle sparkle throughout. The backside of the bodice is also sheer and highlights the gown’s boning. Ruching accentuates the back of the bodice, and a dramatic, soft train completes the look. The back of this handcrafted lace wedding dress zips up beneath crystal buttons.

Silvery beadwork swirls across the V-neckline bodice, up into spaghetti straps and across the low, wide scooped V-back shape of this gorgeous gown.
Glittering rhinestones create lines throughout Bria ? from the belt at the waist, to the V-shaped linings of the front, back and underarm panels of the bodice. Lace appliques sprinkle across the hemline of the dreamy soft tulle skirt, matching the lace on the fully lined front and illusion back of the bodice.
