Relaxed & Intimate

Catwalk Shows

We love to show you our newest and bestselling designs on the catwalk, and at our events we give you the chance to see each dress up close as the catwalk comes to your table. The design team give you the details of every dress and veil as it comes out on the runway, so you can really get to know each style.

There is time after each catwalk show to look at the dresses and accessories in more detail, and to request to see styles again on our models.

Handmade accessories

Tour of our Studio

We will take you on a tour of our design and production studio, so you can see where your veils, tiaras, petticoats, belts and accessories are made here in the UK. We are so proud of our modern studio, where we create every design using the most beautiful fabrics. You will get a glimpse into our treasure trove stock room where we keep all of our crystals, pearls and laces, as well as a walk through our production studio where you can see items being made in front of you.
