2014 was a wonderful year for the team here at Ivory &co – it saw us move to new stunning premises, have our dress and accessory designs featured on the front covers of lots of bridal magazines and win the Perfect Wedding Award at the later part of the year for Best Accessory Collection.
We are thrilled that 2015 has started off in the same way for us. We loved attending the British Wedding Awards at The Tower Hotel in London where we won Best Bridal Accessories (and we were also nominated for the category of Best Bridal Dress Collection which meant so much to us!)
The last 12 months have been a dream so we would like to say a big thank you to all our loyal stockists and the lovely Ivory and Co brides who voted for us at the biggest awards to allow us to win – we are very grateful that our hard work has been rewarded x
We have been hard at work lately designing the most wonderful Art Deco inspired headpieces so if you are looking for a gorgeous statement piece for a Great Gatsby theme wedding or if you are going for a slinky 1920’s style dress and want the perfect statement headdress then check out the new designs which can all be seen on our website : www.ivoryandcotiaras.co.uk and look for these new styles in our bridal stockists around the uk.
We are excited to be able to give a sneak preview of our new bridal showroom!
It’s a treasure trove of over 500 designs of tiaras and headpieces (one of the largest collections in Europe) as well as a large selection of gorgeous designer silk wedding dresses.
This fabulous trade showroom allows brides to see the full collections and meet the designer whilst bridal boutiques can browse the stock and discuss bespoke dresses to be designed exclusively for their store away from the usual hustle and bustle of the trade shows.
At the Ivory & Co headquarters today we are just loving the feature in Wedding Ideas Magazine… Their Best of British article focuses on 5 top bridal designers and we are included!
I’s a fab double page featuring dresses from our new 2014 / 2015 collection and giving some background on our head designer Sarah Bussey, and the gorgeous silk fabrics she has used in the latest designs.
Thanks Wedding Ideas and congrats to fellow designers in the feature : Charlotte Balbier, Forget-me-not-Designs, Hazaar of London and Charlotte Mills footwear!
We are so exited to announce that for the 3rd year in a row we are again finalists in the category of Best Headdress Collection at the Bridal Buyer Awards.
We love this award ceremony (which will take place this year in September) as all the designers that work so hard every year in the bridal industry are recognised for their excellence – so congratulations to all other finalists this year too and good luck for September!
So sorry to everyone out there that we have been really quiet of late – it’s been an unusually busy time here at the Ivory & Co. headquarters (even busier than normal!) This has been down to a hectic show season as well as our exciting move to new premises…
This project has involved a lot of work – we have been renovating a beautiful place in the countryside to accommodate new offices and a huge showroom (this will be one of the biggest bridal showrooms in the country). Since the major building work finished we have been gradually moving in everything we need and are hoping to finally relocate within the next 3 weeks.
Now that the busiest time is out of the way we’ll have much more time to post news about everything that the coming months have in store for us – keeping you posted about the opening of the new showroom as well as 2 exciting designer events we will be attending in November (a Designer Event at BOA Boutique in Richmond and a Dress Launch at Grafton Manor, Bromsgrove).
We will also be sharing news about the beautiful new collection of dresses we are designing for the next season (which will be launched in London in April) and the new selection of bridal stores which are now stocking our Ivory & co. dress label.
So watch this space and we’ll be sharing all the exciting news in the coming weeks…
