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 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.
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 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…
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!
We love this site – it is such a useful tool for brides in helping them to find “The Dress” – if you have not yet come across it – take a look – it has dresses by so many different designers, so if a bride is looking for a particular style (for example Strapless ball gown style) the site will show all dresses in that style by all the designers – this can help brides to shortlist their favourites without visiting lots of different shops. the site even allows to you book appointments direct with boutiques to try on your favourite dresses.
