The Augusta Jones style is defined by contemporary clean lines with a twist - usually in the form of an unexpected bejeweled detail. Started in early 1999 by Charlotte Leung, her wedding dress label "Augusta Jones", set out to do things differently. She needed a range of bridal gowns that would fulfill three basic requirements: beautiful styling; flexibility of the range to suit a variety of shapes; and affordability. The dilemma was finding an existing line that could fulfill all three criteria. In the end she decided to design a small line for her own shop to offer brides these options. So successful was her initial collection that she launched the range in England in September 1999. The label is now available in over 150 shops worldwide.
Born in Denmark to a Danish mother and British Chinese father, she divides her time living and working between London and Hong Kong. After her first collection, Charlotte Leung teamed up with her stepmother, June Leung, an award-winning designer in her own right. June Leung brought her passion for art deco and period piece jewelry to the collection - very much in evidence by the extravagant detailing found in key pieces. They spend their time between the sample room and equally important, travelling the world for inspiration.
Successful from the start, this young company has been awarded three British Bridal finalist awards within the first two years of introducing the label. Their work is regularly featured editorially in Cosmopolitan Bride, Brides, Wedding & Home, You and Your Wedding and Wedding Day.
