So the honeymoon is well and truly over and it’s back to cold (extremely cold) harsh reality of work.
This year I’m focusing on two areas which I think are under-served in the wedding market. Whilst I love designing and making wedding dresses, I’ll be honest that I can’t compete commercially with the high-street bridal market in terms of price or speed. My designs are labour intensive and, consequently, expensive. I am still designing wedding dresses, in fact have a couple of commissions so far this year.
However, two areas in which I do believe I can offer a unique and valuable service are the bridesmaid market (unique designs for multiple ages, shapes and sizes with a colour theme), and also the market for mother of the bride/groom.
Whilst laid in the sun (sigh), I had a hundreds of design ideas. In fact I found the beauty of Sri Lanka immensely inspiring…
This week I made a start on a new collection of bridesmaid designs.
