Blossom and Belle
Situated in a luxurious studio in Poppleton, York, Blossom and Belle specialise in the creation of one-off bespoke Bridal and Evening Gowns.
The Designer Antonia has 20 years experience as a couture Bridal wear designer having worked under the label Antonia Houston Bridalwear after graduating with a BAHons in Fashion and Textiles.
Blossom and Belle was established in 2013 when two sisters in law Antonia Aitken and Sarah Cartright decided to design a ready to wear range for the real woman. Creating beautiful clothing that you want to wear and you feel and look fabulous in, not what fashion dictates you to wear.
With her love of Couture bespoke gowns Antonia yearned to reintroduce her skills as a Bridalwear designer within Blossom and Belle. Her specialism is to make every bride feel beautiful and special on her wedding day. It does not matter what size or shape you are we are able to create a gown that will make you look and feel wonderful.
Each Blossom and Belle gown is completely unique. When you come to the studio Antonia will sit with you and go over your own ideas. Looking through fabric samples and sketching an array of designs you will go away knowing you are in safe hands. Our gowns are made using the most luxurious of fabrics, trimmings, beading and embroideries. All our bridal gowns are lined in silk providing the utmost in luxury. We have a range of sample dresses for you to see or try on enabling you to have an idea of what style of gown will suit you.
The process of having a couture bridal gown is very special. After the design is chosen we will take your measurements and start creating a pattern. A toile is made which is a mock up of the dress in calico where you will begin to see your design taking shape. After the toile is perfected we will then start creating the gown in the chosen fabric. There will be approximately 5 fittings from start to finish to ensure the gown is just right. Blossom and Belle can work on your available appointment times so any day or time is fine for the fittings making life easier for you.
