At High Society we’ve always been fortunate to have the very best of British designers at our fingertips. In the bridal world, these include
Buying a British made gown has several advantages, one of which is the fact that you can request changes to the design. Often a neckline can be changed, lace up or button back requested, even a design change to the size of the skirt or a trim, provided it fits in with the original design. It means also that you can have your dress made to measure, or mix sizes. If a standard size does not suit your body shape, you can pay extra for a complete made to measure dress. This can be particularly helpful for a bride who has a larger bust, or is particularly short or tall. And let’s face it, not many of us have the perfect figures!
Buying British also means that you don’t have to worry so much about timescales. British designers can be more flexible about getting you gown to you within a certain timescale, and you know once it’s ordered that there is absolutely no chance of it getting lost half way across an ocean!
Obviously these top designers only use the very best silks and laces, so the end result with a British made designer gown is always very beautiful! British made normally costs more, and for a gown by one of the above designers, you can expect to pay approximately £1,750 to £3,500. There is however a new diffusion line by Sassi Holford, called So Sassi, which delivers hand made gowns made in the UK for between £1,000 and £1800. Take a look at these if you are determined to buy British, but don’t want to break the bank! For more details on any of the above, see Designers at High Society.
