So, you are inspired by a certain era and know exactly what you want your wedding gown to look like but you can't find a vintage original - what is a girl to do? A beautifully designed and hand made vintage-inspired gown could be the answer, so we are lucky to have Lizzie Agnew exhibiting at our Vintage Bridal Fair on Sunday 13th June.

Inspired by some of fashion's most glamorous eras, Lizzie Agnew designs and makes beautiful vintage style gowns and dresses from her studio and award winning boutique, Atelier, in Queen's Arcade, Belfast. Since attending St. Martin's School of Art in London, Lizzie has spent over 20 years designing and creating beautiful garments, her work has appeared in numerous publications including The Guardian and The Irish Independent. She offers a unique design service and by working closely with the client can create a fabulous gown for any occasion.

Whether it's a wedding dress, evening gown, or just a gorgeous frock Lizzie's beautiful designs, and her use of luxurious fabrics such as fine silk dupion, shantung, taffeta and velvet will make any woman feel sensational in a classisc garment which can be treasured for years to come.
Also very popular are Lizzie's 'Dresses To Go'. These pure silk, vintage style, wrap dresses are available in a wide range of colours. If you have a particular colour in mind, Lizzie can make up a special order for you - perfect for bridesmaids! There are three parts: a 50's style tiered petticoat, fully lined silk skirt & matching bandeau bodice. Size is not an issue! It will fit most figures - from size 8 to 14 - and as with the colour, sizes outside this range can be made to order.

The Frock Around The Clock Vintage Bridal Fair will take place on Sunday 13th June at Malone House, Barnett Demesne, Malone Road, Belfast from 12 - 5pm. Admission costs £5 and there will be goodie bags for the first 100 visitors.
