Design your own Mother of the Bride outfit

FB ClappingDesign your own Mother of the Bride outfit

I have a truly stunning Mother of the Bride to share with you today!

This is the lovely Margaret in her very own, bespoke designs. Her dress is a variation on our Amanda style. This flattering shape with side swept pleats suits almost every one. Margaret wanted her dress cut with a sweetheart neckline so we were delighted to oblige. She chose a Silver Pure Silk Dupion fabric with a contrasting shade of Turquoise Pure SIlk Dupion for the highlights.

Margaret also chose two jackets for the two separate celebrations – the first is a longer length version of our Evie jacket in Pure Silk Dupion. The jacket collar facing and lining was in Turquioise silk and the sleeve buttons are Swarovski crystal. The second jacket is a panelled variation on our Lola jacket in a heavily embroidered beaded lace in a darker shade of silver.

Naturally the waist embellishment on the dress had to match each look so we made it removable. To cordinate with Silk jacket there is a matching bow with contrast lining and a diamante brooch, and for the lace jacket a lace bow with a different brooch.

Every detail of these pieces was chosen by Margaret to be exactly what she wanted and we loved guiding her through all the choices. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures of your family and gorgeous daughter Margaret. You can see more images below

The Bespoke Design process

107a

 

The Bespoke Design process.

I’ve been working on some more bespoke designs today. I love getting busy with the sketch pad and working out the final details of a design. I never have a problem coming up with new ideas – the problem is sorting through them all to make sure I get the right match for the Client’s personal style. This is a vital part of what we offer – the world is full of ‘off the peg’ solutions but I want to make clothes that reflect the personal and unique style of my Client!

The picture above shows the second stage of the bespoke design process and the sketches that I produce to finalise a design after a Consultation. The hat, fabric, colour and diamonte trims shown are just a few of the thousands of options available. Sometimes a Client will fall in love with a particular fabric sample or colour and it can help me formulate the design when I have them in front of me. We have an amazing collection of diamante trims to choose from too so I like having the prettiest bits of bling around me to make sure I select the perfect ones.

Once the sketches are finished I just have to wait for my lovely Client to make the final decision. I know that this can take time. Making a decision about the right look is an important one, especially when you now the Wedding photographs and video are going to last a lifetime. I do strongly believe though that when we get the combination right the Client just ‘knows’. When we get the magic combination everything falls into place and all the stress of making the decision falls away.

Perfect!

Once thats done we’re one step closer to another unique, made to measure, personal style statement for another ‘Yummy Mummy’ Mother of the Bride.

New Collection Preview

We are so excited to be working on our new Collection! We’re not ready to reveal it to you all just yet but here’s little tease of one of our gorgeous new Wedding Dress designs.

This is our ‘Giselle’ gown which has a soft, boho, vintage-inspired look. A layer of ribbon edged, sheer chiffon is a feature of the bodice and looks delicate and feminine. The body of the gown is soft and fluid and has a traditional full length, floor sweeping hem line.

The gorgeous fabric is an absolute show stopper – fluid and delicate but lavishly embroidered with shiny iridescent sequins. The light catches this beautifully and whether you plan your ceremony for day time sunshine, artificial evening lights or candlelight this is a stunning choice.

Perfect to ensure that absolutely all eyes are on the Bride!

Hope you like it xx

Swarovski Crystal Bridal Gown details

Detail

Hello

This is a close up shot, of the edge of a delicate lace capped sleeve. I love how you can see the details of the intricate texture and all the hand sewn Swarovski crystal droplets.

When you commission us to make your Bespoke Wedding Dress we will tailor every single detail to your preference. This was Amy’s choice, but what would make your dress personal, and unique?

Sometimes when Clients come to see us the sheer choice that we offer can be overwhelming. I love seeing the look of wonder growing on a Brides face when she realises that she can have ANYTHING! Any style, any fabric and any colour – all perfectly made to measure. It gives me my ‘Fairy Godmother’ moment as I know that my design expertise and my super skilled workroom can make all the Brides Wedding Dress dreams come true.

Lets make it happen 🙂

Love Maria xx

A quote from a Client

Bev RossThis is the beautiful Bev Ross at her recent Wedding. She had a unique celebration that was full of details that made it special for her and her new Husband. She wrote us this lovely message which has left us all very touched.

“I just wanted to thank you again. I can’t believe how amazing I felt in my dress. And there isn’t one picture of me in it when I wish I was thinner or taller or anything, and that’s down to your amazing work and the whole emotional experience you gave me.

You have no idea how important it was.”

Thank you so much Bev! It was an absolute priviledge to be part of your special day.

Ariel the Little Mermaid

ArielHello

This is another of our brand new exclusive designs. It’s just been finished and this is a quick snap of it on display on a mannequin in the Studio.

It has slightly cutaway shoulders and a key hole decollette finished with a swarovski crystal button. The fitted mermaid, or fishtail shape is fitted to the body and then flares out into a beautiful full hem.

The fabric is stunning – sheer tulle embroidered with sequins, beads and flowers in shades of blue, turquoise, silver and green over a blue satin under layer.

As usual with a new design we had a debate about what to call her. This one has been christened ‘Ariel’ after Ariel the Little Mermaid, one of Disney’s Princesses. It’s a terrible pun – but a gorgeous dress!

Hope you like it.

Love Maria xx

Mother of the Groom

IMG_0847Hello

These gorgeous pictures arrived from Claire today. Doesn’t she look amazing? She chose our Juliette Dress with the Evie Jacket as her Mother of the Groom outfit. We’re thrilled at how good she looks.

This cocktail length dress is such a flattering shape. It’s neat and modern looking but still incredibly soft and feminine. The Pure Silk Dupion fabric is available in a million different shades so it’s easy to find the perfect one to suit your colouring and preference, as well as making sure that you outshine the other guests!

Thank you for sharing Claire!

Love Maria xx

Grown Up Glamour for a Mature Bride

2015 Tony Awards - Arrivals

Hello

How AMAZING does Helen Mirren look? She’s 69 (I had to check and can scarely believe it!) and looks incredible. This dress is a gorgeous choice for her – and would be amazing for a mature Bride, or for anyone who wants to rock a red carpet or other special occasion.

I love the fact that she’s choosing carefully what flesh to show – so upper arms are discreetly covered but the decollete is beautifully shown off. Sexy AND smart!

If you’d like a dress inspired by Helens choice get in touch – I’d love to help you bring your vision to life!

Love Maria xx
