In the stunning surrounds of the Teddington Arts Centre, which is a magnificent and slightly crumbling old cathedral, Carolyn de la Drapiere attended a wedding fair in early February. The Fair brought together all the aspects of wedding planning and bridal wear and what a fabulous day it was, with gorgeous models wearing beautiful dresses on the catwalk and hundreds of brides-to-be enthusiastically checking out all the options that would make their big day a roaring success.
The choice for Mother of the Bride / Groom is very limited. Shops tend to stick to the very traditional dress and jacket combination which can look fabulous on some women and awful on others. High Street stores churn out mass produced dresses that whilst pretty, look common and repetitive and chances are high that someone else will be wearing the very same thing. A nightmare that all women want to avoid!
Carolyn de la Drapiere offers women the completely individual, original option and that is the ability to have a bespoke dress made at a similar price to other high street options and certainly less expensive than many of the other dress / jacket combinations that are to be found in most bridal shops. Customers to our very friendly showroom can choose from our luxurious collection of silk creations and try on styles and designs at leisure. A dress or two piece outfit can then be created to totally suit the individual’s body shape and taste!
And it is all very easy. Choose a design, or bring a picture of something you like, choose some fabric, or bring your own, have your measurements taken and off we go. It’s as easy as one, two, three! Carolyn de la Drapiere has seamstresses with skills that are second to none, the garments are finished to the highest standard and the finished product is guaranteed to delight!
The Teddington Wedding Fair was therefore a resounding success, with a large group of women overjoyed to have found an alternative option to the usual run of the mill clothing choices for wedding wear. Our models, Kate and Krissy looked beautiful on the catwalk in a small range of our Spring/ Summer 2014 collection. The full range will be available on line in mid March.
Lots of Love Carolyn xx
