“I like my designs to be structured, elegant and feminine – not an obvious combination to put together but, to me, that’s exactly what makes it interesting.”
Margaux Tardits the world of luxury fashion, having worked with top design houses including Balenciaga, Oscar de la Renta & Lanvin means she holds a wealth of high end experience, technical knowledge and style. For something unique and individual Margaux Tardits is your girl.
Carte Blanche Bride is delighted to be offering Margaux Tardits exclusively to Australian brides for the first time in 2018.
Margaux’s adventurous exploration produces everything from the bold and wild to ‘dreamy’ and romantic. An original designer bursting onto the bridal scene. The materials are delicate and light, yet strong and noble. Chiffon, Calais lace, silk gazar Margaux seeks above all, movement and texture.
She knows both the creative process, through her job as a stylist, and that of the craft and manufacturing, thanks to her initial training in sewing / model making.
Margaux Tardits describes the moment she realised she could combine her passion for designing and dressmaking in a career as a fashion designer as a pivotal one:
“From earliest childhood, I loved creating and inventing new things – it runs in the family. One day my mother told me that if I became a fashion designer, I could combine design and dressmaking in my work. I must have been seven or eight at the time. It became an obsession.”
Each gown is crafted using only the most luxurious natural fibres; the finest silk chiffon and crepe, as well as quintessentially French lace from Calais – a fragile and disappearing art Margaux is determined to preserve.
“I work predominantly in silk chiffon and crepe. Silk chiffon gives the figure a softer, hazier feel, while silk crepe gives it a more structured and modern look.”
With each gown, Margaux’s aim is to celebrate the wearer’s unique femininity and beauty, to make her feel desirable and for the groom to fall in love with his bride all over again. Classic silhouettes are reworked with modern lines and a mixture of vintage and contemporary details, while a clever use of layering reveals glimpses of plunging necklines and low backs without giving too much away. To give each design its own signature, Margaux gives each model the name of a cult film star; famous and inspiring.
"I’m an out-and-out fan of the veil. For me, it’s the finishing touch and immediately gives a suggestion of magic and mystique."

"The women of today are free. They have character and they want to have it their way – this inspires me no end. I love the idea of using a dress, a hairstyle, or make-up to reveal a woman’s beauty…It’s essential that a bride feels beautiful, desirable and feminine on her big day."
