Today I returned to Leonie Claire Bridal in Brighton to meet with Sarah Arnett. The shop smelled of perfumed candle and was full of beautiful gowns. Leonie and her lovely team greeted me with a beaming smile and a much needed coffee.
Sarah was sitting on a sofa drawing, “I think I have just the dress for you” she said “Wow!” I said looking at her sketch! She talked me through the concept and talked of silk, georgette, crystal and sparkles! Of course I can’t tell you exactly what the dress is like only to say that it’s the one. I tried on some similar shapes to give me a feel for it.
The thing is, although I’ve not seen the dress I utterly trust her designs. I know that it will be amazing in every way yet quite me at the same time. How clever to be able to do that?
