The Carina Bolero

As promised ...........

we have begun to work on bridal pieces to add to our inventory available to purchase in our store without going through the custom made process. Its our hope that there will be enough variety and choice that everyone will find something that will suit and not have to worry bout getting something especially made.

One of our previous custom clients "Carina" inspired a really stunning piece which we have decided to develop as part of the new range. We are naming the piece after Carina as she really owned the look on the day of her wedding and each time Ger and I talk about that particular bolero its like..
" you know that Carina bolero" so now its stuck! (Thankfully Carina is a classy name to begin with! )
We also created the short sleeved version of this piece which turned out deliciously romantic with lots of feminine ruffles to boot!

Both Carina Styles will be available very soon to purchase in store in stunning raw silk dupioni.
In Style,
bonzie & ger

Wonderful design. Wish I was a bride to wear that... oops! I am happily married with two children...need to be carefull what you wish for...

Yvonne, it was absolutely wonderful working with you on my bolero :) The day was magical and the bolero certainly gave me the medieval/narnia/winter queen look I was going for. Even the packaging was absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to work with you again in the future! And by the way, I am so honoured that you named the bolero after me. I am sure it will make so many brides happy, I know I was over the moon with mine! People still talk about it...

-Carina :)

This bolero is gorgeous. I'm been thinking of wearing one for my October wedding and lace seems so cliche. Do you have any pictures of brides wearing??
