Amy Mair Couture launches her 2017 Dove Collection

This month, Amy Mair Couture launches the 2017 Dove Collection at the Rachel Burgess Bridal Boutique, Penarth.

Encapsulating the textures and fabrics used in high end European haute couture fashion, Amy Mair Couture gowns offer brides something unique and often non-traditional. With a love of glamorous romance and femininity, her collections vary from the alternative charming romantic traditional wedding to haute couture.

The Dove Collection is the second line of gowns created by Amy Mair Couture, following on from her debut ‘Signature Collection’ in 2014. Each of her collections draws on influences from nature and travel, with this collection specifically inspired by animal movements and plants.

The collection is made up of three gowns; Florence, Rowe and Amaris.

Florence exudes romance. A truly fresh approach to a floral dress, it is made of printed organza in soft pastel pinks, cream and sage. Soft and pretty, it has elements of structure in the corset which then plunges into a dramatic full shaped skirt.

Rowe offers a more delicate touch of romance. Tulle weaved with stars and dots makes it textured yet femininely delicate. The full tulle skirt sits over the simple silhouette of the silk handle slip. The slip can go on first with the weaved tulle overlay styled to be classic or bohemian.

Amaris is a petite soft sequin gown with corded champagne French lace. A feminine empire shape with a flattering peplum, the gown is finished with a narrow singular bow under the bust and a sequin cascade into an extended puddle train.

The Rachel Burgess Bridal Boutique is the exclusive Welsh stockist for Amy Mair Couture and is based at 2 Victoria Bridge Penarth. Open Tuesday – Saturday 10am-6pm, for appointments call 02920 709 701 or email
