A little bit about the designer...
- • Catherine Parry is in fact Maria's grandmother, whom the designer named the brand after. Affectionately know as 'Kitty' to her family and friends, Catherine forms the inspiration of the whole brand.
- • Being born in Wales in 1922 during the waretime years, Catherine was in love with the Hollywood movies and the stars of the silver screen. Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn had a particular influence on Catherine's own refined and elegant sense of style.
- • During her childhood, Maria had many happy memories of watching some of the Hollywood classics on 'Nana Kitty's' knee and the Catherine Parry bridal collection is with no doubt a very fitting tribute to her grandmother.
- • New styles and designs are constantly being developed in Wales by a British design team with Maria at the helm. Using the finest fabrics and laces, every bead and crystal in the intricate detailing is tirelessly applied by hand.
- • With incredible structure and corsetry, the dresses offer a flatter fit so brides feel their very best on their wedding day.
Chatting to the lovely Lindsay from 'Dress in Love' based in Hertfordshire, she tells us a little more about why she loves Catherine Parry.
"This collection takes a fresh, fashion forward minimalist approach with the gowns having cleaner lines and sleeker silhouettes. Using new fabrics such as crêpe and unusual patterned laces, the dresses provide detail without the need for appliqués and heavy beading. Some of the new designs feature illustion backs, plunging necklines and cut aways which are very much on trend this year. Catherine Parry ball gowns have also been well received - one of our most popular styles in the new collection is a Mikado silk dress with a full high-low skirt and s 50's Bardot-style neckline. The collection is aimed at brides who want to express their creativity and individuality by mixing and matching tops and skirts to create their own look and we predict this year separates is going to be one of the biggest bridal trends. This collection is perfect as it comprises a wide range of lace jackets and tops, structure bodices as well and organza and chiffon skirts. The simpler dresses are designed to be accessorised with jackets, capes and belts"
