Designers Jane & Marilyn recently hosted an open house to showcase their newest offerings. Spring and summer offer lots of occasions when you want to look your best, but finding something high quality that fits well and suits the occasion can sometimes be challenging. Jane & Marilyn offer an entirely different shopping experience. This high-quality line of ready-to-wear and couture dresses is made from lightweight wools, silks and cottons in a rainbow of colours. High quality fabrics mean designs by Jane & Marilyn will last for years, and flexible styling makes their dresses incredibly versatile.
The showcase featured current collections and samples from their new bridal service.
Jane says, “We’re very excited about our new bridal service. We launched it because we have had a number of brides approach us asking if we can produce our designs in bridal colours – which of course we can. These ladies are often getting married for the second time and don’t want to take the tradition wedding gown approach.” The bonus is that a few small adjustments post wedding could allow these dresses that could be worn for years afterwards.
Jane added, “We are also finding a lot of mothers of the bride to be are contacting us really desperate for something glamorous but appropriate as they have been so unimpressed by the typical mother of the bride offerings that are available currently. We can offer them sophisticated, elegant pieces, in their own colour choice, tailor made for a perfect fit if desired. In addition, our designs are versatile so they’ll be able to wear them again and again.”
Jane & Marilyn also offer stylish waspie belts and a hat collection designed to co-ordinate with their beautiful dresses.
Available in sizes 8 through 16 (US sizes 6 through 14), dresses can be adjusted to fit perfectly with Jane & Marilyn’s demi-couture service, or you can choose to have a made to measure dress designed from scratch for you and you alone.
I wore their lovely designs to Ascot, The Henley Regatta and autumn weddings last year. Their ‘Gina’ design is one of my favourites. While the dresses are investment pieces, when I calculate the cost per wear they are actually excellent value for money. Simply changing up my accessories can give the dresses a whole new look.
An homage to the style of the 1950‘s, dresses by Jane & Marilyn are made to flatter your curves, providing ‘Grown up glamour for real women’. Whatever the occasion, Jane & Marilyn offer beautiful designs to help everyone look and feel their absolute best.
