Dedicated to bringing you all the latest bridal news hot of the press, we’ve got details of another new designer landing at one of our Sponsor boutiques – this time it’s one for all you Yorkshire brides-to-be.
As of December, the lovely Diana McMann, owner of The Little Pearl Bridal Boutique in Pickering, will welcome the beautiful ‘Shakespeare’ collection from Noya by Riki Dalal – making them the only stockist of this designer the county.
Perfect for brides keen to make a statement, the stunning collection features stand-out detailing, fabulous fabrics and figure-hugging silhouettes.
In-the-know Diana is here now to tell us more, including how to snap up an appointment at a special Designer Weekend, between Friday 10th and Sunday 12th November, where you lucky brides-to-be will be able to view and try on these truly lust-worthy creations…
How would you describe the style of the Noya by Riki Dalal designs and why are they a good fit for The Little Pearl?
diana says: Riki Dalal is world renowned for her exquisite, extravagant haute couture bridal gowns. Riki launched Noya, a luxury ready-to-wear collection, to enable brides to have that modern, fresh bridal look without the couture price tag.
Sexy and modern silhouettes with statement detailing are huge bridal trends at the moment, and something that was missing from my collections in the boutique. As soon as I saw the Noya collections I just knew it would be the perfect addition to the boutique.
Can you tell us a little about the Shakespeare collection?
The Shakespeare collection is inspired by the writers most powerful female characters. The collection is full of romance but with a bit of an edge! There’s shimmering tulles, 3D florals, luxurious laces and stunning embellishments. The collection has a real mix of unique styles too, from illusion beaded separate toppers paired with tiered tulle skirts, to sexy fitted gowns with dramatic lace over skirts.
Which design catches your eye most from the collection?
I am totally in love with Olivia from the Shakespeare collection. I love the separates look, even though you wouldn’t think this was a topper and skirt. The floral detailing and lace is out of this world, nothing like I’ve seen before!
What type of bride would the dresses appeal to?
The bride that wants to have that haute couture look, standing out from the crowd and highlighting their individuality.
What is the size range and price range of the collection?
The gowns range in price from £2,000 to £3,000, with sizes available to order up to an 18.
Do you have any events coming up that would be of interest to our readers?
To launch the collection into the boutique, we are hosting a Designer Weekend, on Friday 10th, Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th November, at the boutique. The whole collection, plus gowns from the ‘Casablanca’ collection, will be here for brides to try on for the first time in Yorkshire! Every bride that finds their dream Noya gown will also receive a complimentary veil, plus lots of other treats too! Just contact us to book your exclusive appointment for this event!
What can brides expect from an appointment at The Little Pearl?
Every bride who comes to the boutique has the place completely to themselves. I love to get to know my brides, hear about their wedding plans and just have a really fun bridal experience. We chat through their bridal style, whilst I offer advice on different looks and how to accessorise too. The boutique is a really warm and relaxing environment for the bride and their guests, plus we always have lots of delicious treats too!
What is your top tip for brides-to-be when dress shopping?
Have an open mind to trying on different styles to what you are usually used to. It’s the one day you can ‘go for it’! I just love the look on my brides’ faces when they fall in love with a gown they never thought they would. It’s magical!
