Bride & Co along with Eurosuit recently launched their 2018 Collection, at the hip Mesh Club in Rosebank, Johannesburg. It’s not everyday that one gets to see exquisite wedding dresses up close and personal, so it was a rare opportunity to touch and feel the gowns.
It was a good idea to have @Tali_Babes (the character from Showmax’s “Tali’s Wedding Diary”) as the “virtual host” to introduce the evening. I say virtual because Tali was on a video recording, who welcomed guests before the welcome drinks.
The actual MC for the night was always elegant K Naomi Noiyane.
A few of the wedding gowns, worn by gorgeous models of course, came flowing out, along with the “grooms” dressed to perfection by Eurosuit.
After chatting to the Marketing Manager for Bride&Co, Daniela Solomon, I learned that the bridal gowns range in price, from about R3 500 to R25 000! But one can also rent some of the gowns.
Established in 2008, Bride & Co has grown to become one of South Africa’s most beloved wedding and evening wear stores, offering customers an unforgettable look for any occasion. And that is just the thing, Bride & Co is not only for brides, they have evening wear for every occasion. Here are some photos of non-bridal garments.
With 10 stores nationwide and a wide variety of suits, suit separates and dresses on offer, the Bride&Co and Eurosuit team are able to help customers style their perfect look.
For the ladies, Bride & Co offers three exclusive international brands – Bride & Co, Oleg Cassini and Viola Chan – all of whom are launching new styles as part of The 2018 Collection.
Oleg Cassini bridal wear offers brides a romantic and elegant look. The Oleg Cassini bride embodies a classic, timeless and sophisticated demeanor as she remains perfectly poised. She conjures up memories of the vintage brides of yesteryear, with her soft but glamorous image. She is refinement personified. Oleg Cassini is a style icon and known for creating some of the most memorable fashion moments of our time. As the designer for both Grace Kelly and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, Cassini’s unique designs ushered in a new era of timeless simplicity based on clean lines and crisp forms with opulent and luxurious fabrics.
Words such as fashion forward and trendy come to mind when thinking Viola Chan, the final brand on offer for ladies at Bride & Co. The Viola Chan bride is confident, independent and edgy. She oozes sexiness but at the same time keeps it classy and elegant. She is sultry and can be dramatic with an air of mystery that makes her irresistibly gorgeous, chic and always fabulous. Viola Chan has become an internationally celebrated designer of bridal gowns. These gowns bring edge, sophistication and a red carpet look to the bridal industry.
Viola has said that “The bridal gown is one of the most important dresses in a woman’s life. It represents love, trust and faith and I love creating a gown that will put a beautiful smile on her face when she finds ‘the one.’ Her gown is a reflection of her style so it is essential that every last detail is thought through, down to the tiniest bead or button. It is these intricate details that are going to give her a unique wedding day look and make her feel special when wearing the dress.”
The 2018 Collection also sees the launch of all new evening wear styles from these three brands as part of their social occasions offering. Whether customers are looking for the perfect matric dance dress or simply need a showstopper for a night out on the town, these brands offer the most glamorous looks.
Eurosuit has the men covered with suits to buy or hire. Whether looking for suitable corporate wear or work attire, attending a red-carpet event, a special occasion, for a groomsman or for the groom himself, Eurosuit has a selection for men of all styles.
