Nerecina Wedding and Custom Gowns | Interview with Wedding Dress Designer Plus Size

Delighted Extraordinary Bride Week! Every year, we like to showcase the latest plus size and designer wedding dresses — and today, we ECSTATIC wanted to share an interview with Jenine Nerecina, of Nerecina Couture.

Jenine is an on-demand wedding dress designer, and in her interview she made me laugh several times during our interview. Jenine and I met a few days after the Oscars (more on Jenine’s red carpet in a future post!)and while she’s tired—she’s sparkling too!

Let’s talk about custom plus size wedding gowns!

Custom plus size wedding dress

Based in Los Angeles, California, Nerecina Couture creates plus size wedding dresses for brides who want to stand out.

“The brides decided to choose Nerecina wedding dresses because they couldn’t find what they were looking for at the big box corporations. My goal is to create fashion items, gowns that combine bridal and fashion. As a designer, I really come up with options for brides that aren’t available yet.

A calling life

When asked how she got into fashion design, Jenine laughed and said (sparkling eyes), “This is my only thing! I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer when I studied sewing at the age of 7 in the Philippines. My grandmother taught me, and starting in high school, I actually started making clothes.”

Fast-forward a few years to 2018, and Jenine starts her brand. “Before Nerecina, I had a straight brand. But when I started Nerecina Couture, I knew I wanted all sizes – but I knew I wanted to change it. I said, ‘I’ll show fat girls.’”

I will only for fat girls.

“When I told people in my life about my plans, I received some scornful looks,” she shared. “An old friend said to me, ‘A skinny girl would never look at a fat girl and ask what designer she was wearing.’”

Jenine grinned as she recalled, her smile growing wider as she added, “Now, whenever we film outside, people always ask who we are. And when a skinny person asks what the brand is, I laugh to myself.”

Inspiration

Designers can sometimes feel overwhelmed when asked about their inspiration, as there are many aspects that feed their creativity.

For Jenny, “So for me, I love novel fabrics that create beautiful silhouettes. I really thought about how the fabric would look on the body. Jenine definitely shows a love of novelty material, as her pieces often feature feathers, sequins, transparent black mesh (ooh la la!) and other design elements.

Multi-Purpose Apparel

Because Jenine designs for unique or non-traditional brides, she always strives to create designs that can be worn again. I want brides to be able to speak“I can wear this to my wedding, and I can wear it to my work charity gala.”

Jenine works with bridal clients in her studio in Los Angeles or she’s happy to meet via Zoom. “Some brides worry about Zoom,” she shares, “but it works great. I guide my clients through the entire process, and we have fun and laughs along the way.”

When asked about oversized wedding dress trends for 2023, Jenine shared that she sees many brides ordering custom styles for “court weddings” or smaller ceremonies outside of the wedding. traditional large.

“I also see brides becoming more adventurous with oversized wedding gowns,” she shared. “Overalls are really popular, and I sewed my satin jumpsuits in various shades of white to wear at the reception. I really like that.”
