We catch up with the fabulous Chanticleer team to find out about their latest gowns…
What makes Chanticleer gowns unique?
From initial design to finished dress, all Chanticleer gowns are handmade with love, care and attention to detail. As our designer Tracey Salt would say, they are ‘her babies’, so she really does expect the best for them.
Why should brides choose Chanticleer?
Chanticleer bespoke gowns are all handmade in our studio in Cheltenham Spa, by our small team of highly qualified seamstresses who have over 30 years of sewing experience each. Our attention to detail makes our gowns irresistible to many brides, and we source the most luxurious silks and laces to create little magical masterpieces.
What advice would you give to brides starting their dress search?
Stay calm, go with your gut instinct, and don’t overwhelm yourself by trying on to many dresses on your first day! Instead, choose a max of 8-10 dresses in one or two shops and then go home and work out what you loved and didn’t love. If one of the designs stays in your mind, then try it again, and only if it’s not right should you continue your search.
What is your best selling gown and why?
Laconia from our Blue Ribbon collection is our bestseller. That dress just has something about it – no matter what shape or size our brides are, they always look amazing in that gown.
What can we expect from Chanticleer next?
Oh, we don’t like to give too much away, but our 2018 collection is looking to really push the boundaries once more. Classic Chanticleer styling will contrast with a creative quirky twist. Watch this space!
