At Ivory and co they use an array of gorgeous silk fabrics and beautiful French and Italian laces to create a wide range of stunning designer wedding gowns. Every bride has a different vision of the look she wants to achieve for her special day so they ensure that only the best quality organzas, silk chiffon, taffetas and silk satins are used. Head designer Sarah Bussey also commissions original bespoke lace that is made especially for Ivory and co and is exclusive to the designer collections.
All gowns are designed with inner corsetry to flatter and enhance the silhouette of every bride and instead of just providing dresses to a standard UK size dresses are made as a new pattern block for each bride based on their body measurements. This allows brides to feel happy, confident and comfortable and concentrate on enjoying their special day.
An Ivory and co bride can buy the best quality designer dress possible for their budget. As they only use the finest silk fabrics many brides who are aware of our brand are expecting to spend more than for a synthetic dress but are often pleasantly surprised by our price range and the wide variety of styles we offer.
Ivory and Co offer something for every bride so each of the collections offers key style elements so our brides can find pure romance, clean cut designer looks, Great Gatsby vintage styling as well as floaty boho or amazing statement gowns.
With an emphasis on creating stunning gowns with the highest quality materials Sarah believes that it is essential to put the bride at the centre of the Ivory and co. design philosophy. “We understand that this is the single most important garment a bride will ever buy and wear. The most important element for every Ivory and co. bride is that we carefully look after her along the journey to make sure we understand every aspect of her dream dress and ensure that this time is an enjoyable experience to remember.”
The Ivory and co. dress collections provide a wide and varied choice for todays’ bride and Sarah feels this versatility has been key in connecting with her clients. “They’re truly designed for every bride. So many labels just stick to one style but that has never been their way of working. Designing for all brides whether they want a statement dress, a fairytale gown, 50’s chic or a totally relaxed non-formal look.
