Forbes once compared Nicole and Felicia Chang to the Olsen twins. Sure, the two are young, petite sisters who founded their own fashion business and dress some of the world’s wealthiest women, but that’s where the comparison ends.
Unlike the Olsens’ monastic and subdued minimalism at The Row, the Changs create gowns that wow. Their bridal and eveningwear designs for their Taiwan-based fashion brand, Nicole + Felicia, are often decadent affairs bursting with fabric and heavily adorned with hand-stitched embellishments. These are dresses that take up real estate on the red carpet, as Chrissy Teigen recently demonstrated at the Grammys.
It's that extravagance that has led Nicole + Felicia’s signature tulle ballgowns to fill up ample aisles at weddings, both real and imagined (see: Taylor Swift’s I Bet You Think About Me music video).
Kim Lim wore one of their dreamy dresses in her wedding portraits. Chloe Ng, too, chose a captivating Nicole + Felicia gown that came with a silk flower train and required the assistance of a two-person team. And how can we forget Bling Empire star Cherie Chan, who had the mother of all trains at her secret wedding at the Château de Saran castle in France?
