Dress Launch at Grafton Manor

Grafton Manor

We are so looking forward to the Ivory & Co dress launch at the gorgeous Grafton Manor in Bromsgrove on Thursday evening!

They are holding the event in their fabulous (heated) marquee where the dresses will be modelled in their catwalk show.  There will be further dresses from the collection on display for brides to try on and a display of our award winning accessories too so brides can find everything they need.

Brides will have a chance to chat to Sarah (the head designer at Ivory & Co.) about what they are looking for and to ask for advice.  She’ll have her sketchbook on hand and will be able to design bespoke dresses for any brides who ask.

There will be bubbly and canapés during the evening for brides attending as well as goodie bags.  For an invitation for this VIP event please call Grafton Manor on 01527 579007.  For more information about the event click here.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Fabulous Designer Days!

Darcywall B + W

A huge thank you to BOA Boutique in Richmond where we attended an Ivory & Co. Designer Event on Friday and Saturday!

It was lovely to meet so many BOA brides over the 2 days and help them find their perfect dress.  We had the opportunity to chat about their chosen venues, and the styles which best suited them and there were many happy brides at the end of each day who had made their choices and quite a few brides who opted for having a bespoke dress made just for them.

I was busy with my sketchbook both days creating new gowns depending on just what the brides where looking for and it was great to see these ladies so excited about having their dream dress designed just for them.

So many thanks for such an enjoyable time…

Designer Event at BOA Boutique, Richmond

BOA Boutique

 

We are so excited to be visiting Richmond near London this Friday for the Ivory & Co. Designer event at BOA Boutique on Friday and Saturday.

We’ll be bringing a huge selection of our dresses including new designs for brides to try and I’ll also be bringing my sketchbook for any brides interested in having a bespoke designer dress made just for them.

We will have everything from dramatic fairytale dresses to slinky 1920’s inspired gowns and chic tea length dresses, all in luxury silk fabrics.

BOA will be offering a special 10% off the dress for any bride ordering on the day – so it’s definitely worth going along to try out the dresses and to meet the designer.

Interest has been so high that availability is very limited for Saturday and there are a few spaces left for Friday – to book an appointment for this exclusive event – call BOA Boutique on 0208 948 2340.

We look forward to seeing you there…

Autumn Update!

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…

Perfect Wedding features Ivory & Co…

A big thank you to Perfect Wedding magazine for the lovely article they wrote about our head designer Sarah Bussey on their Designer Notes page – we were excited to see it here at the office!

3 of our new dress designs were also featured in their write up on the catwalk at The White Gallery – Issue 84.  Just another reason we love Perfect Wedding!
