Hannah Claire is a boutique clothing and jewellery brand, who luckily for local brides, has now designed an occassional range including bridesmaids dresses! Handmade in NZ with a focus on simple styles that create flattering silhouettes, each style promises to be worn time and time again after the big day. I asked Hannah to tell us more about her range…
“The aesthetic of our occasional range targeting bridesmaids isn’t the stereotypical bridesmaid dress. I have made a point to produce dresses that are suitable for bridesmaid dresses but fall within the range of occasional dresses. Simply because I want to provide our customers with value for money and offer them a dress that not only, would be perfect for the day but also you wouldn’t think twice about wearing to a wedding as a guest or any other formal occasion.
Another main factor i was aware of was peoples varying budgets, therefore with this range i have decided to introduce varying price points in accordance to the material so each dress is available in either silk or polyester. There is also a wide range of colour choices and each styles can be moderated to meet the individuals taste as well as made to measure for an additional cost.”
