Keen to see you ladies get the most out of shopping for your dream dress, we highly encourage attending special industry events that can see you benefit from one-on-one expert styling, viewing full gown collections in just one appointment and even receiving exclusive offers.
And today we have news of one such event taking place at top North Yorkshire boutique, The Little Pearl. Owner and professional bridal stylist Diana McMann will be hosting a Stella York Trunk Show at this lovely Pickering boutique from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th February, giving ladies the opportunity to view and try on designs from the label’s fabulous new collection, plus those who purchase a gown during the event will receive a complimentary veil. So, more money to spend on the shoes, right?!
Booking an appointment in advance is a must and so we’ve invited Diana to the blog to give us the all-important details…
Can you give us an overview of what the event will include?
Diana says: There will be fizz, sweet treats and a complimentary veil if a bride finds her gown. Ladies will get to view and try on a larger collection of Stella York gowns to what we usually have in the boutique. All of the dresses are from the brand-new collection and they will only be here for this weekend event, so it really is a fabulous opportunity for brides to see the very best of what this amazing label has to offer.
How many appointments will be available on the day?
We have six appointments on each day and so can see up to 18 brides over the weekend. Appointments will be one-and-a-half-hours long with every bride having the boutique completely to themselves with expert styling and advice on hand.
Tell us a little about the Stella York collection…
The new collection from Stella encompasses a variety of modern shapes and styling, with a new focus on clean lines and simple fabrics, such as beautiful crepe and Mikado.
Any favourite designs for you personally?
My favourite has to be style 6758. She is the ultimate classic bridal gown. The fit of the bodice is just incredible, plus it has pockets…a total dream!
What type of bride is a Stella York bride?
This collection from Stella lends itself to all kinds of styles of weddings. There truly is a style for everyone; from boho to glamorous. The collection will appeal to fashion-forward brides, but who still desire an element of tradition.
Does the collection feature any key trends for this season?
Yes. Statement lace insert trains, classic Mikado fabrics and plunge necklines.
What sizes are Stella York designs available in?
Stella is available in all sizes, from UK size 4 to plus size.
What is the price range of the Stella York dresses that you stock?
Generally, £1,000 to £1,500.
What are you looking forward to most about the event?
We love seeing that beaming smiles on our brides’ faces when they first turn around in their dress and completely fall in love! Making our brides wedding dress dreams come true is what it’s all about!
Do you have any advice for brides-to-be attending the event? Is there any research they should do in advance?
As these gowns are here for this weekend only, we advise to have already tried a few styles on before attending. This will help you to make more of a firm decision on the day as we don’t usually have these gowns in store.
