Another Month Another Buying Trip…
Wow I can’t believe that March is nearly finished and that means we are just days away from our 1 year anniversary of me owning the shop. What an amazing year it has been but I am also still recovering from the most amazing buying trip that I have just been on.
Our buying trip to London kicked off very very early (04:00) on Sunday Morning and finished very late on Monday night but even though it was short it was absolutely amazing. We were in London for London Bridal Fashion Week which is a three day event held at London Excel and hosts some of the best designers in the world all together under one roof.
I was extremely lucky to be accompanied on the trip by Martine Blair. As some of you will know we are very privileged to have Martine working in the shop to do alterations to your beautiful wedding gowns to achieve the perfect fit for your big day. Martine has years of experience and has created some stunning wedding gowns and occasion wear so it was good to have a true expert with me to look at dresses especially in more technical terms such as structure, fabrics, alterations ease and fit.
We didn’t get to see much of London apart from the sky and what we saw from the Tube across the city but wow we filled the two days looking at the most amazing gowns, feeling the most luxurious fabrics and the most figure sculpting fits on the models of the 2020 bridal collections from across the world.
We also managed to do some celebrity spotting and saw some of the biggest names in bridal such as Ian Stuart, Randy Fenoli, Christine Dando and David Emanuel to name a few but weren’t brave enough to ask for any photos!
The most exciting part of the trip was that we found an absolutely amazing designer who we will be bringing to Aberdeen and I can’t wait to share more details on that with you but you will not be disappointed. Trust me the dresses are beautiful, fabrics amazing and the designer is so talented. We were both so excited and probably spent most of our time on this stand meeting the team, drinking prosecco and narrowing down which dresses to buy from their huge collection.
I am so excited to be adding another designer to The Bridal Boutique Family and sharing more snippets and sneak peeks with you over the next few months.
