There’s no doubt about it – committing yourself to a gown made entirely from scratch is a pretty big decision (and one we explore in the current edition, FYI), as is finding the ideal designer to do the job. Ease your mind with Angus-based Pamela Fraser Designs’ exclusive ‘Meet The Designer’ events, to be held this month (on Saturday 22nd September) and next (Saturday 20th October).
“If you’ve ever considered having your gown hand-made just for you, come along and learn about the process,” urges Pamela. “I’ll be able to take you through the costs and simple steps involved in making your individually designed dress. You’ll be shown around my studio, where you’ll see all the amazing fabrics and trimmings up close. You can also look at my collection of sample dresses.”
It’s a stress-free opportunity to weigh up whether this avenue is right for you or not. “Many brides-to-be buy a dress and have it altered to suit, which adds extra cost,” argues the designer. “Why not look into the idea of having your dress made to fit?” And if you still need convincing? A 10% discount will be available on the day. Get in quick. “The offer will apply to anyone who arranges an appointment, with a view to having a gown designed,” explains Pamela.
Meet the Designer Events, Pamela Fraser Designs, Saturday 22nd September and Sunday 20th October, 10am-4pm
