A visit to a wedding dress design studio: Allbone & Trimit

I recently visited the lovely Catherine of Allbone & Trimit in her fab little studio in Crystal Palace. Catherine was one of the first wedding suppliers I ever introduced myself to before I’d even officially launched my wedding planing company so it was great to have a long oveerdue catch up over tea and cake, and yummy polenta lemon drizzle cake at that from the local Blackbird Bakery.

Catherine is a bespoke wedding dress designer, but not just your average white dress, Allbone & Trimit specialises in creating truly original and bespoke dresses for your wedding day in a range of luscious colours and fabrics.

Fashion Inspiration: Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012

Doing a little browsing today and came across the Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs spring/ summer 2012 collection. With lots of ice-cream pastels and the most beautiful giant broderie anglais detailing I thought they made the perfect inspiration for those of you looking for short wedding dresses and the models made their entrances via a white carousel, how fabulous would it be to have one of those at your wedding…
