Kate Fearnley bridal is harnessing two trends in one, and taking the bridesmaids’ dress out of its traditional comfort zone.

The Middlesbrough designer offers her iconic dresses in numerous colours and styles, enabling bridesmaids of all shapes and sizes to be catered for, as well as embracing the ‘colour pop’ trend that is rocking the bridal world.

“No two bridesmaids are the same” says Kate. “Different shapes, body worries and colourings can provide bridal headaches galore! The trend for having bridesmaids following a theme, but each feeling comfortable and fabulous is something we have looked to harness in our latest collection, and it’s being snapped up across the world.”

Most of Kate’s dresses can be made in different lengths. They can all be made in any available colour. Tweaks can be made to the backs, the sleeves, and the necklines, to ensure that each bridesmaid is flattered and feels amazing on the big day.

“Made to measure is available from our Middlesbrough boutique” continues Kate. “However more and more we are finding brides ordering one standard size too big for their bridesmaids from the internet, and getting them altered at their leisure. We are happy to provide telephone consultations to brides wanting to work in this way, and can suggest sizes based on measurements.”

The dresses are available from the website, www.katefearnleyboutique.co.uk and also by appointment can be made to measure at Kate’s Linthorpe Road, Middlesbourgh Boutique (01642 227344).
