New trader: Hello Trixie


"Hello Trixie is a custom bridal and evening gown business created by Laurelle Gardiner. It’s joy and passion at its finest: bringing together a fashion designer that loves what she does, and a client, ready to see her dream dress brought to life. 
Whether she’s creating wedding gowns, bridesmaids’ dresses or evening gowns the focus is always on gorgeous fabrics, great fit and good fun. Each dress is custom made, which means one of a kind and made to fit. The client and I work together by discussing style ideas and then putting together a final design. Next we go fabric shopping, and then I get to work. We meet up over a number of weeks for fittings, until finally her dress is in her arms, safe and sound, ready for the big day." - Laurelle Gardiner
