Harrogate

Buying Trip

Monday 13th September was the day for our annual trip to Harrogate Bridal Show, one of the trade shows of the year where most of the designers show their latest collections. This year we were browsing the fabulous 2022 collections from some of our designers! We made a plan prior to the day to ensure our day ran smoothly and we managed to fit in everyone who we wanted to visit!
Our first stop was the beautiful Hotel Du Vin for the incredible Jesus Peiro show! Of course, we were so excited to view their new designs and they absolutely did not disappoint! We all have a huge love for all things Jesus so we were all in our element sat in awe of the beauty in front of our eyes - we could have sat there all day! If you love classic elegance with a modern twist, you will absolutely love the Jesus Peiro gowns! Our ever growing list for the Jesus gowns we all loved needed cutting down (just a tad)! We did manage to narrow our very long list down, (shocking, I know)! To a wonderful list of beautiful (show stopping, may I add) gowns and some incredible accessories which will sit beautifully within our current collection!

Our next stop was the Harrogate convention centre where most of the other designers were showing their new collections, we were very organized before the show and had already completed all of our buying for Lillian West, Sincerity, Justin Alexander Signature and Blue by Enzoani! So, the next stop on our list was Kenneth Winston! If you’re looking for Hollywood glamour, Kenneth Winston will be the designer for you, intricate laces, beading and sparkle adorn their gowns beautifully, whilst the construction and fit of the gowns are so flattering! We added a beautiful list of gowns to our collection, again, we did have to force ourselves to narrow our list down a little! We can’t wait for all of our new gowns to arrive in the boutique! As soon as they arrive, we will be posting photos of them on Instagram! We know you will love them as much as we do!
In between our buying stops, we did take advantage of the wine bar and a sit on the comfy sofas to discuss our buying and next steps! At the end of a fabulous day, we ended with an equally fabulous meal at the Ivy, a gin and tonic was had, along with some incredible food (and a bread basket)! We then headed home after another incredible, fashion filled day of buying, until next year Harrogate! Lots of love, Jess and all of Team Lulu’s xx
