When we first stepped into Harrogate Bridal Show last September, Blue Lace was still in its infancy and it was time to embark on the journey of choosing our designers. Confident that we had excelled in creating the environment for Blue Lace, we now needed to bring in the designs that would launch us into the spotlight and complete our signature bridal experience. Undoubtedly Harrogate is the largest and most important event on the bridal calendar, and just walking through the doors we were in no doubt that this would lead us to the collection of gowns that would perfectly create the image we were aspiring to. Our dream has been to offer our brides a choice of contemporary, classic, elegant styles with a full range of fabrics, cuts and finishes. Undoubtedly the collection of designers at Blue Lace has every element required to accommodate even the most discerning brides.
So, let’s meet our designers!
I’m going to kick things of with the incredible Lazaro! Lazaro Perez, a talented designer originally from Cuba, truly is the Mozart of fairytale gowns.
Lazaro’s collection is a sumptuous mix of dreamy romance, timeless elegance and just a sprinkle of diva glam. Designed to enchant and seduce, Lazaro creates frothy ball gowns to sculptured trumpets. Goddess gowns in luxurious fabrics shimmer and bedazzle.
Lazaro creates perfection for a brides evening under the stars, an opulent ballroom bathed in golden light, or a magical destination far far away.
Need I say more?
Next up we have the fabulous Demetrios! Demetrios James Elias, originally from Greece but now living and designing in Milan, is the master of romantic, ethereal, dreamy gowns.
Where dreams begin and style is forever!
We are carrying an amazing selection from both the “Starlight” and the “Platinum: Clair de Lune” Collections. These luxurious, dazzling dresses will guarantee an entrance that nobody will forget and a true statement for your special day.
A real must see, ladies!
And now for the most trusted source in the bridal industry, Randy Fenoli! Originally from Illinois, USA, Randy progressed to become fashion director at the infamous Kleinfeld Bridal Salon in New York City. Today he is the star of “Say Yes to the Dress” seen by millions of viewers every week!
Randy’s mission is to educate, elevate and empower a bride to choose the most important dress in her life and to realise her own personal beauty.
We agree with Randy that no matter what size, age or shape EVERY woman is beautiful and we can overcome any challenge. We are thrilled to be carrying some beautiful gowns from Randy’s Silver Springs Collection, a good mix of styles with an understanding of what works for real women.
A gentleman and superstar!
Next we have the classic, traditional elegance that is Grace Philips. Grace and Phil are two innovative young designers from Durham in the south of England who excel at designing and creating gowns that are fit for a royal wedding! Similar to what we have seen on Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie in the last two years, these dresses exude regal, high end opulence.
Grace Philips designs are not just wedding dresses. The structure and cut, coupled with amazing fabrics such as duchesse satin and mikado contour your body and scream glamour.
These signature silhouettes are fishtail and full ball gowns. Extravagant, yet understated, these wedding dresses have no fuss or flounce but clean lines and amazing trains with pure red carpet glamour.
To follow that, we have Anny Lin, an inspirational designer originally from Vietnam. Anny Lin comes from a long line of bridal designers and has built up a growing following in the last few years.
Inspired by tradition the Anny Lin collection weaves together modern and classic designs, incorporating contemporary tailoring, unique modern style with elegant and innovative flair.
As the only stockist of Anny Lin in Northern Ireland, we are confident that these gowns represent originality and are a real breath of fresh air in the bridal market.
Last, but certainly not least, we have our wonderful Special Day. For over forty years Special Day has been designing beautiful, high quality bridal gowns to the Irish and international markets. Designed by the lovely Joanne McFadden, we are pleased to stock their three bridal collections- The Claddagh Collection, The European Collection and The Beautiful Brides + Collection.
The Claddagh dresses feature classic and modern designs with high quality finish and exquisite fabrics. The European Collection is more affordable without compromising the designs and fabrics. These dresses come with a wide choice of styles from fifty’s inspired tea lengths, to soft flowing chiffons. The Beautiful Brides + is an amazing collection of award winning dresses that are specially designed and cut to celebrate real curves. Each gown is designed with couture construction to flatter every shape.
