We went along to Wendy Makin's showroom to view the Makin Couture 2013 Collection (expected to be in Australian stores from January 2013) and it was dreamy! We always expect great things from this award winning designer and we were not disappointed.
The collections reveal was held at the designer's Woolloongabba showroom. Special guests and media were invited to an exclusive first-look preview of the new collection, which featured 18 handcrafted and Australian-designed bridal gowns.
"We've already experienced an overwhelming response from brides regarding a number of gowns. This includes the Caldeonia which was showcased at this year's Queensland Brides Design Awards, and was crowned the Supreme winner," Mrs Makin said.
The gowns incorporate various design features that are expected to be popular in 2013, such as the use of sheer lace overlays, floral patterns and overskirts. For us the standout gowns in this 18 piece collection are Caldeonia, Katelyn, Reegan and Ramona, as they push traditional bridal design barriers, and perfectly represent Wendy Makin's signature style and forward thinking.
Earlier this year, Wendy Makin opened a store in Melbourne, Brides on Collins, to meet the current demand for high quality and tailored bridal fitting and design services in Victoria.
In October, Wendy won the Couture, People's Choice, and Supreme awards at the 2012 Queensland Brides Design Awards and received a Highly Commended for the Avante Garde category, all of which will be shown in the February 2013 edition of Queensland Brides.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the stunning gowns on display earlier today...
