Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver has been selected to be the exclusive retailer for Emmy London in Colorado and one of the first retailers of Emmy Shoes in the United States. According to owner Cate Malone, “Brides want shoes that are just as special as their wedding dress, and for years I have been asked where to find unique and beautiful wedding shoes. The addition of Emmy London shoes to the Little White Dress collection provides the perfect compliment to our bridal gowns and fulfills this desire to find wedding day shoes more exquisite than anything available online or in a department store.”
Emmy London, designed and crafted by artisans in a specialty workshop in London, include signature hand beaded decorations, vintage inspired heels, and the best Spanish and Italian leathers. Swarovski crystal, Mother of Pearl shell, and silk satins add a touch of decadent luxury to these heirloom-quality shoes.
Designer Emmy Scarterfield gained her expertise in accessories by working in Italy for Bottega Veneta, Georgio Armani, and in the factory that makes Manolo Blahnik shoes. After returning to the UK she noticed the gap in the market for elegant bridal shoes and brought her creative vision to the luxury wedding market. Throughout the past 10 years, Emmy London shoes have been applauded in the press and have been adored by stylish society women and celebrities. Emmy London designs bespoke shoes and accessories for The Duchess of Cambridge, her sister Pippa Middleton, and her mother Carole Middleton, including designing the mother of the bride’s shoes for the royal wedding.
After years of success in the UK, Emmy London launched her bridal collection in the United States in 2014. Little White Dress Bridal Shop was chosen as one of the few specialty retailers of Emmy London shoes in the United States. These beautiful shoes will be arriving this summer at Little White Dress!
Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver, Colorado has been selected to be the exclusive retailer for the Marchesa Bridal Collection in Colorado. According to owner Cate Malone, “It is very exciting that the Marchesa bridal collection will be in Colorado for the first time ever. I believe that a wide variety of brides will adore these impeccably made, romantic yet modern gowns from one of the most respected names in fashion.”
Marchesa, designed by British born Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig, is a luxury fashion brand based in New York City. Known for their elegant eveningwear and one of a kind couture designs, Marchesa fuses exquisite detailing with a strong sense of femininity, romanticism, and beauty.
Chapman and Craig met at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London and blended their talents in 2004 with the creation of Marchesa – named after their muse, an eccentric Italian heiress known for her style and fashion. Since then Marchesa has become well known for dressing celebrities on the red carpet, including Penelope Cruz, Kerry Washington, Rihanna, Kate Hudson, Halle Berry, and Sandra Bullock.
As the ready-to-wear and couture collections continued to grow in success, Marchesa introduced the bridal collection in 2009. Known for artful laces, delicate details, and romantic silhouettes, Marchesa bridal gowns epitomize elegance in wedding dress design. Each Marchesa bridal gown is specially made to order in the United States for every individual bride.
The Marchesa bridal collection is featured in the world’s most exclusive retailers and finest bridal boutiques. Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver is the first and only retailer in Colorado selected to carry the distinctive Marchesa Bridal Collection.
Carrie Underwood, who performed at last night’s Time 100 Gala in New York City, walked the red carpet in the beautiful Raven gown by Claire Pettibone. Raven is a favorite of ours from Claire Pettibone’s Still Life collection of wedding gowns. This gown would look equally as stunning on a bride who isn’t afraid to don a colorful, out-of-the-ordinary look for her wedding day!
For brides who want to stick to a more classically bridal look, this beautifully embroidered gown with delicate sequins is also available in ivory. We think both versions are absolutely enchanting!
