Earlier on this month I recived a lovely surprise ariving into The Bridal Lodge (the studio where I work) just like any normal day and greated by all the lovely girls with a cheer and been told that RSVP Magazine had choosen me for the Best Bridal Designer 2016 in there 2016 wedding style awards, I was over the moon with excitment I think you could tell by my snapchat story that day how much the award ment to me to say I was speachless was the understatement of the year, and those who know me know I'm not quite. my hard work and risk of launching my first full bridal collection right in the middle of my final year of secondary school had payed off
Balancing school and designing was never much of a challange for me as I'd been designing bridal since the age of 13. In my final year of school which ment a load of studying I decided to launch my first full bridal collection as I always dreamed of launching a collection after seeing the effect my dresses had on brides and thought I'd have to go to design collage first, however while I was researching colleges I noticed that the design atelier I had trained in since the age of 13 covered everything except illustration drawing on a 3 year college course having discovered this I felt confident to launch my first full collection. which I started working on during the summer before 6th year.
I launched my collection in October 2015 when I was just 17 years old and I managed to study for my leaving cert while designing for brides and celebrity stylist Marrietta Doran, I arrive to the The Bridal Lodge everyday after school and started my homework then I would design dresses after I designed I then studied and the I would get up early yet again to study before school
I adore designing bridal soo much and I still offer couture for brides as I believe they should have the dress of there dreams that suits there personality for there perfect day, a brides walk up the isle is a there red carpet moment and they deserve to have an amzing dress!.
I'm absolutley delighted to be RSVP'S Magazine's Best Bridal Designer Of 2016 words can not even express how happy I am, thank you soo much RSVP Magazine! xxx ❤️
