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 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.
Today is an exciting and very busy day for the Ivory & Co. team as we are packing everything up at our showroom ready to go up to the Essential Collection to set up…
We’ll be spending a long time setting up our stand ready for the opening of the show on Sunday at Stoneleigh in Warwickshire. We are really looking forward to catching up with our lovely customers who are coming along to the show – and maybe meeting some new ones too.
We will be showing our full collection of wedding dresses including the new 2014 designs as well as the new collections of headdresses and jewellery too. There will be literally hundreds of new sparkly items for bridal shops to browse over and choose from for their brides.
So to any shops planning on coming along – pop over to our stand (no. D5) for a glass of bubbly and a chat – it will be lovely to see you and show you the new creations!
