It’s all about Oz for Kudos Bridal Boutiques

Wendy Makin’s Toulouse, £999

Kudos Bridal Boutiques in Edinburgh and Dunfermline are looking to Australia to fill their rails with newness.

“At both stores, we have gowns arriving from Wendy Makin,” reports Lisa Davies. “Wendy is recognised as one of Australia’s best bridal designers. After more than 30 years, her dresses have become known for their quality of design, fit and manufacture.”

A handful of styles are making their way to Kudos, but it’s the floaty, angelic Toulouse (above, £999) and slinky Solange that have caught our beady eye.

Head to the Dunfermline store and another Aussie designer awaits. “Wendy Sullivan has over 33 years’ experience and her newest range features an ultra-feminine combination of vintage lace, flowing chiffon and luxurious satin,” explains Lisa. “The gowns are perfect for those with a more laid-back style.” Still need convinced? Taissa (above, £POA) effortlessly embodies this ethereal, nonchalant feel.

And what if your ‘maids are on your mind? “We also have the new Jenny Packham x Dessy dresses at our Dunfermline boutique (below, from £280),” adds Lisa. “These are exclusive to Dessy and we are thrilled to stock the full range in one place. They showcase the signature, elegant Jenny Packham style with the added bonus of Dessy’s extensive range of colours. Everyone’s sure to find something they love!”
