Little White Dress is one of only seven bridals boutiques in the United States that carries Sassi’s London-based collection.We are thrilled that brides will have the opportunity during our trunk show to see dresses in the Sassi Holford collection that are only available for a limited time in the United States! Sassi was kind enough to chat with us before the trunk show so we could share with our brides more about her as a designer.

Tell us about yourself and your family.
I’ve been designing wedding dresses for over 30 years – I have a “less is more” approach with my designs. I am thrilled to say that earlier this year I won the Best Dress Designer Award with Wedding Ideas Magazine and then just two months later I picked up the Best British Bridal Designer Award with Bridal Buyer – the UK’s two most prestigious bridal designer awards!
My husband, Martin, handles the marketing side of things -so it’s a real home away from home at the office! We have three beautiful children – Charlie is 16 whilst the twins, Missie and Hugo, are both 12 (we recently welcomed another addition into our home – a Shih Tzu-cross who’s almost 11 months old and called Monty – he too comes to the office on occasion!)
I have two boutiques: my flagship boutique in London exclusively offers my Couture Collection and I meet with clients every month there. My other boutique is based where I am in the South West of England and this is where the Signature Collection is available (in addition to selected bridal boutiques in the UK and North America).
Sassi after accepting her 2013 Bridal Buyer’s Award for Best Bridal Designer
How did you get started as a bridal designer?
I had just finished school and a friend was due to get married but had no real budget for her dream dress. I offered to make the dress for her (overnight I might add!) and, whilst I had clearly underestimated the full extent of the task, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment –it was a success and things naturally progressed from there.

How do you get your inspiration for each new collection?
Whilst I tend to draw on all areas of life and fashion I do find that my brides are a constant source of inspiration when I’m working with them in one of my boutiques. They share their opinions and ideas with me – their passion has always been hugely motivating and inspiring.
Describe your vision of a bride who wears your gowns. What is her personality and style?
My brides are brilliant – they’re savvy, independent career minded women who aren’t afraid to make a statement and show their romantic side.
The Thea gown
How do you come up with the names of your dresses?
They normally stem from brides and people that I’ve met in the past who I feel have characters that match my designs.
What are the differences between brides/weddings in the UK and the US?
I see a lot more brides in the US choosing to have bridesmaids at their wedding and the sheer size of the US, as a country, lends itself to offering so much more in terms of choice and variety – you can get married outside for a start (mind you – you generally have better weather for it…)!
What is your advice for brides looking for their wedding gown?
Try all the dress shapes first and you will just know when you find “the” dress – you’ll look and feel at your most beautiful …but you must never compromise on your comfort!

With 45,000+ weddings in Colorado every year, and half of all engagements occurring between Christmas day and Valentine’s day – it’s officially “Bridal Season” at Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver. Brides from throughout Colorado, the entire Rocky Mountain Region, and the U.S.A., are visiting Little White Dress Bridal Shop to find their most amazing wedding gown. This year, brides are in for a special treat, and will have the opportunity to meet three renowned and leading bridal and fashion designers who will be visiting Little White Dress Bridal Shop during their trunk shows. Each designer will personally assist each bride in finding her perfect wedding gown from their new 2013 collections.
“It has always been my desire to create exquisite feminine clothing using the finest fabrics and precious details; to combine a vintage feeling with modern style. In 1994, with the partnership of my husband Guy Toley, we began. Over the years, it has been a joy to see our collections carried in the finest boutiques in the world. I have a very romantic vision of how fashion can enhance our beauty and indulge our dreams. I invite you to share that dream.” Claire Pettibone
“I take great care and pride in what I do, it’s part of who I am. My whole approach to art is how I approach fashion. I give myself the ability to play and experiment. My designs are what I am and who I am, and that is what a Liancarlo dress becomes as well – part of you.” Carlos Ramirez
“My 2013 collection is a celebration of the women who have inspired me throughout my career. Their stories and their influence is seen in the dramatic details, exquisite embroidery and stunning trains featured in my gowns. The excitement in a bride’s eyes the moment she sees herself dressed in the dress of her dreams is matched by my own.” Matthew Christopher

Little White Dress Bridal Shop is thrilled to be welcoming the one and only Claire Pettibone for our 2013 Claire Pettibone Trunk Show February 22-24!
Claire Pettibone has been designing her feminine, romantic, vintage-style wedding gowns for nearly a decade. But life changed for the wedding dress designer last May when the world learned that Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, got married, and that his bride, Priscilla Chan, wore Claire Pettibone’s “Sky Between the Branches” gown.
The excitement didn’t stop there. Claire Pettibone and the staff at Little White Dress Bridal Shop were surprised and ecstatic to learn after the wedding that the new Mrs. Zuckerberg, using a pseudonym, had actually visited Little White Dress and purchased her gown right here! The intricate, delicate dress that Priscilla Chan wore, as well as Claire Pettibone herself, were featured in worldwide news and style coverage, on television, in newspapers, and online in the days and weeks following the Zuckerberg wedding. We are honored to have been part of raising awareness of Claire Pettibone’s stunning designs to brides around the world.
Since the Facebook bride chose Claire Pettibone’s gown for her big day, life at Little White Dress has been different too. Brides travel from throughout Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region specifically for Claire Pettibone wedding dresses, which are only available in Colorado at Little White Dress Bridal Shop.
Despite her status as a celebrity wedding dress designer, Claire Pettibone is as focused as ever on making every bride look and feel her most beautiful. We are delighted that Claire will be helping LWD brides find their perfect dress in person during our trunk show February 22-24.
Meet the delightful and gifted Claire Pettibone and experience true paradise right here, right now, with her entire Spring 2013 “An Earthly Paradise” collection. Call us today to book an appointment at 303-814-8972.
