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…

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…

Successful Designer Day at Krystle Brides in Bath!

Krystle Brides

On Saturday the 20th April, Sarah and I went to Krystle Brides in Bath, for their Designer Day event. They had lots of brides booked in to try on our designs, and we were there to advise them on what styles would suit them and Sarah was also on hand to design bespoke dresses for them. By the end of the day many new designs had been sketched and several brides have ordered the dresses of their dreams!

Krystle and Shelley were fantastic hosts for the day, and made us feel very welcome. The shop is beautiful and we were pleased to see so many brides coming along to try on our dresses and chat to us. If you are a bride in Bath, Krystle Brides really is a shop you must visit!

It’s an exciting day here at Ivory & Co!  Tomorrow for the first time our brand new dress designs will be unveiled to brides at the Designer Day we are attending at Krystle Brides at Bath.

All the beautiful new styles will be available for brides to see and try on.  There are stunning new styles from our Haute Couture Collection – dresses with classic styling, huge dramatic trains and flattering silhouettes to give a tiny waist.  These are made in fabulous fabrics – pure silk organza, and silk satins.

There are also new styles from our Heritage collection, 1920’s inspired bridal gowns that could have stepped right out of The Great Gatsby.  This is right on trend for all the brides wanting that Art Deco look that is so in fashion.  These are floaty stylish dresses in silk chiffon and with soft silk draping cowl backs and glittering crystal accents.

If you want to be amongst the first brides to see these stunning new styles – just call Krystle Brides on 01225 446844 to book an appointment.

Our brand new dress designs will be unveiled in just 9 days time at a special event at Krystle Brides in Bath!

This will be the first time that brides anywhere will be able to see designs from the new collection (yet to even be unveiled to bridal stores – due at The White Gallery trade show in May).

There will be over 40 gorgeous dresses for brides to try on – many from the existing 2013 collection and 5 brand new stunning styles as a sneak preview.  They will be on show for brides to see from Thursday 18th April until Saturday 20th.  On the Saturday I’ll be there at the store as a Designer Day where I can help brides find the perfect dress to suit them and discuss any alterations etc… I will be bringing my sketchpad and will even be able to design bespoke dresses from scratch.

So if you want to be the first bride to try the new styles or if you want to discuss the dress of your dreams with me then call Krystle Brides on 01225 446844 to arrange an appointment… I look forward to seeing you there.
