Kate Moss might have said ‘nothing looks as good as skinny feels’ but for the average Australian woman and even on her wedding day a size 6-8 (Kate’s size) is simply unachievable. While most brides would aim to drop a kilo or two before their big day, it’s unrealistic to expect everyone can be a supermodel-sized bride.
And it’s for this reason that Simply Bridal have chosen to put plus-size models in their debut fashion show this weekend. Real Aussie women is what owner Ann Wilson had in mind when she created her latest self titled bridal collection.
Ann Wilson has long history in Gold Coast fashion. From her first store in Robina Town Centre ten years ago ,she has gone on to become one of the Gold Coast’s most successful bridal businesses winning many industry awards along the way.
The big leap into her own label is being celebrated this Sunday in a spectacular show featuring over a million dollars worth of Callieja jewelery and a selection of Queensland’s foremost models including former Miss Australia Georgina Denahy and Eva Milic from Nine News as MC.
As the use of plus-size models on magazine covers and runways becomes more popular, it is refreshing to see the bridal industry embrace a variety of shapes and sizes in its shows and publications. Like the groundbreaking Dove real women campaign Strictly Bridal “Brides Day Out” will allow brides of all body shapes the chance to picture themselves in all styles of wedding gowns as seen on the catwalk.
The Spectacular show will take place on Sunday 7th of October at the Marriott Gold Coast and will be hosted by Channel Nines Eva Millic. The whole team at Strictly Bridal would like to invite you all to come see all the gorgeous gowns on show and join us in celebrating Ann taking this exciting leap into her own label.
Each guest goes home with a gift bag worth over $600 and one lucky brides goes home with the ultimate wedding package which valued at over $5000 including a wedding and bridesmaid gowns of their choice from the Strictly Bridal by Ann Wilson label, one night accommodation in an Executive Suite at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa including breakfast for two, and wedding hair and make-up by Lattouf Hair and Day Spa.
The bridal showcase will begin at 11am and finish at approximately 1pm. Tickets are just $25 and the event will include champagne and canapés on arrival. Places are limited so booking is essential. Phone 07 5592 9740.
