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

The queen of statement wedding dresses is St. Pucchi. These designer gowns are luxurious, lavish and timeless. St. Pucchi gowns are often infused with colored jewels, hand embroidery, delicate beading and sparkling crystals. Some of the more opulent gowns from St. Pucchi come from her Couture collection. These dramatic dresses are often adorned with Swarovski crystals and lavished in lace and silk.

New Designer(s): Year round my ears and eyes are open for the latest bridal fashion trends, and the newest, or up and coming bridal gown designers. There are certain designers I hope to always continue to work with and carry, and at the same time, there is always interest in new or different designers.
In my efforts to bring the best of the best selection and quality of bridal gowns to Colorado brides, I meet with, and check out a variety of potential new designers at Market in April and in October. Today, most of the morning was spent with one of these potential new designers. Final decisions may not be made until October market, but stay tuned for possible announcements of new designers and collections available at Little White Dress!
Justin Alexander: Two Justin Alexander collections (named Justin Alexander and Justin Alexander Signature) have been available at Little White Dress for more than four years. These dresses are ideal for our more traditional brides, and brides seeking a quality, silk gown at a reasonable price. Justin Alexander skipped ahead this Market, and instead of presenting a Fall 2012 collection, they presented their Spring 2013 collection, normally not available until October 2012 at Market!
With a renewed commitment to creating a cohesive and complete Justin Alexander Signature Collection, and a renewed commitment of Colorado exclusivity to Little White Dress for the Signature Collection, our brides can look forward to six new 2013 Signature Collection Gowns arriving at Little White Dress in August/September.
The gowns feature classic, A-line, modified ballgown, or modified mermaid silhouettes, with ivory, metallic silver or gold linings under lace, lace, lace of all varieties and patterns. Lace is Justin Alexander’s new “Signature,” instead of the silk dupioni fabric of past 2007-2011 collections.

Did you know? An aspiring designer once had two young sons, one named Justin, and the other named Alexander. The designer now had a name for his collection of wedding gowns. Justin is all grown up now and running the business his father began.
Elizabeth Fillmore: Delicate details of lace, appliqués, and the ever-so-slight gathering and draping of fine silks create a stunning sophistication in Elizabeth Fillmore’s Fall 2012 Collection. How many times did I say “beautiful” or “gorgeous” in 45 minutes at Elizabeth’s showroom today?
There is a light and ethereal feeling in her gowns, which must be so peaceful for the brides wearing them. I LOVE the care and attention each gown receives as the designer herself is right there during their creation in her studio. These dresses are hand crafted in New York and made in the USA. And did I mention beautiful? And did I mention gorgeous?

Liancarlo: Unbeknownst to both of them, I’m sure, I see Claire Pettibone and Carlos Ramirez, the creator and designer of the Liancarlo Couture Bridal Collection, as kindrid spirits. Their gowns could not be any more different, but they are both gifted artists who are deeply inspired by the world around them – evident in how they live their lives, and in the creation of their masterpieces. They are both very smart, humble and grateful people who work hard and laugh a lot. Each of their wedding gowns is a work of art, created with a strong intent for perfection.
Carlos’s inspiration for his new collection was his desire to evoke the feeling of heirloom pieces, but with today’s modernity (heirlooms also inspired Claire’s new collection!). His feeling of “gentile opulence” is achieved with the use of luxurious fabrics, hand-cut satin flowers, corded Chantilly lace, and the subtle use of lyrical and jeweled embroideries. I am so happy and honored to have these gowns at Little White Dress! Hand crafted in Miami, made in the USA.

Simply Divine: Elizabeth Fillmore “Deco” gown – satin back crepe bias v-neck sheath with illusion-beaded “deco flower” back.
Cate Loves: The people and the stories behind the gowns. And designers like Claire Pettibone, Elizabeth Fillmore and Liancarlo who insist on keeping the production of their gowns here in the USA.
Musn’t Forget: Flat shoes. In this world of fashion, I enjoy checking out what other women are wearing almost as much as the new bridal fashions. Maybe not, but others are probably checking out my outfits and ensembles each day as well. So while in New York, I do my best to teeter around in the most fabulous high heels that I can, but it’s the flat shoes tucked away in my bag and worn between appointments with designers that bring me such joy.
It’s no secret that Denver brides are loving Liancarolo wedding dresses.
Watch this video to learn about the latest Liancarlo bridal gown (Style no. 5802) recently added to our store. It’s a French Alencon lace cap-sleeve mermaid gown. We paired it with a Badgley Mischka “Castellano” belt to offer a a splash of sparkle.
