I met the lovely Linda of Dresses at No.9 at Leafy Couture’s hugely successful Yorkshire Tweet meet last week.  Hello to all you lovely lot!  Anyway, when she got in touch to share her gorgeous new collection of dresses with Brides Up North, how could I possibly refuse?

Linda tells us: Dresses at No. 9 announced the launch of its first ever collection of Vintage inspired bridal Wear at the end of February. The company now hopes to expand its bespoke services by providing clients with a selection of made to measure bridal wear offering individuality, style and elegance. We chose to launch the collection with a photo shoot on location at Ingrow Station and the Vintage Carriages Trust Museum, Ingrow.

During the 1950’s influences including film, television and music created a new market when teenagers became an emerging fashion voice. 1950s glamour had suddenly arrived. The era can be remembered for two fashion silhouettes; the full skirt and the pencil slim. Both styles placed great emphasis on the narrowness of the waist and we have taken this as our inspiration for our new 2011 Spring/Summer Vintage Collection.

By attentively listening to brides-to-be, I have spent the last few years offering free advice through Facebook, blogging and answering dilemmas in bridal forums alongside my growing bespoke bridal wear business.

It became apparent that many brides-to-be want to incorporate their character into a gown when it comes to their wedding and are choosing Dresses at No.9 as their leading choice of dressmaker.

.

“I am very interested in having you make my wedding dress; having researched several dressmakers in the region I already know that you are my preferred one.”

.

I wanted to create an individual look for many brides-to-be who are forced to choose certain styles currently available in the wedding gown market. Brides-to-be will not only be able to find their perfect wedding gown, but also receive assistance with vendor selection through our personal recommendations.

Having been working in the bridal sector for over 15 years and since re-establishing the business in 2009, a huge following have joined the Facebook group with order books almost filled to capacity for 2011 alone and accepting bookings for 2012.
