Designing wedding Gowns.

April 10, 2012 § Leave a comment

We had a really enjoyable evening at David Frank in Lancaster on Tuesday,3rd of April, where we show cased some of our designs and ideas in a bridal evening and fashion show.

My Mum came up to me after the show and said…’beautiful!’ (as mums do!!) and then told me how lovely the burgandy dress would be in Ivory! She’s right of course, it would! Its so difficult to show every idea, in every colour and detail! There are so many ideas around, and each brides wants a different look, for her wedding day.

Being a designer is all about creating, for each different client,designing for there personality and making their wedding gown dreams come true! The brides who come to me want to make that individual statement, they want a gown which nobody else will have and which has their own personal ‘wow’ factor!

The gowns we show are just ideas, and show our workmanship and different colours and details. My brides all have their own ideas, which I turn into a reality for them and im proud to do so, and im proud to be part of their wedding day.

Lily – A handcrafted showcase gown by Jennifer Pritchard Couchman Bridal, Lancaster

November 6, 2010 § Leave a comment

The inspiration for this showcase dress comes from the classic 1950s movie stars, such as Audrey Hepburn. The design evolved from a number of hand drawn sketches, and maquette’s, before the gown was hand crafted in my studio at The Storey in Lancaster.

Neat seam lines are cut  into a contemporary and elegant silhouette – a sleek classic design. I introduced an exquisite  twist to the design by adding a lower ‘v’ back and an oversized bow detail. The gown is a mix of silk dutchess satin and silk crepe cut on the empire line and falling into a soft a-line with a small train. This dress can be recreated in many different fabrics and colours and other design details can be added if prefered.
