We talk to one of the most exciting names in the bridal industry right now – the fabulous Modeca…
Tell us about Modeca
Modeca Bridal first started in 1946 in The Netherlands as a little shop that sold lace, buttons and other little knick knacks. Modeca then successfully started designing hand crafted bridal designs, and from that point on, the business flourished. Today, Modeca is run by owner and director, Dick van Zutphen, and each design is created within our small team in The Netherlands. Just two team members come up with ideas for the new collections, drawing sketches, then together with the whole team we finalise the design for each single dress.
What collections do you have?
The 2016 Modeca Collection has 43 romantic, classically beautiful bridal gowns and the newly-launched 2016 Le Papillon by Modeca collection has 23 wow-factor designs featuring the finest lace with vintage undertones.
What makes Modeca gowns unique?
The attention to detail in the cut, the fabric, and in every bead and pearl hand crafted for the bride. All the dresses are designed to flatter the figure, making you feel absolutely amazing!
What’s your bestselling style?
Brides love our Sephora, Shine, Sidney, Soul, Suzette and Swan styles from the 2016 Modeca Collection. Sandrea, Sindy, Soft and Stacey of the Le Papillon collection have also been extremely popular.
What advice would you give to brides starting their dress search
Listen to your heart! It’s your big day, so it’s important that you choose your dress yourself. It’s nice to get advice from friends and family, of course, but ultimately it must be your decision. Also, listen to the advice from the professionals in the bridal boutiques, and don’t get fooled into buying a copycat dress online (for more information turn to page 36). Our official stockists can be found at modeca.com.
What can we expect from Modeca next?
We will continue to produce the highest standards in bridal, creating high end, high quality bridal gowns. Getting the bride’s dress right for her special day is something we always do with care. We are always available to help our brides wherever we can, giving her the excellent service she deserves.
