Pure Bride expo - 2019


The 2019 Pure Bride expo.

Strutt Design Studio loaded our cars with mannequins, organza sheers, brochures and a selection of some of our most exquisite gowns and outfits to showcase at the 2019 Pure Bride bridal expo on the Hobart waterfront. 

The space was filled with creatives, suppliers and experts in their crafts, with one passion in common .. Weddings. 

The talent involved in Tasmania's wedding industry is a credit to our apple isle. 

It was also great to finally meet some of the supporters following us and the amazing people we follow back from our Strutt Design Instagram account. 

In particular, meeting the florist extraordinaire behind the amazing Cabbage Flower shop, was an absolute treat.

The ladies from Little White bridal boutique are located at the other end of the state in Launceston, and they refer their southern brides to have their wedding dress alterations undertaken with us, down here in Moonah. So it was wonderful to catch up with them for a chat and a champers, and express how good it is to have a feeling of community in the Tasmanian wedding scene.

 

The gorgeous models 'strutted' their stuff down the catwalk to a stunning backdrop created by the outstanding ladies at King Billy Flora.

We chose to have gowns from our boutique by bridal designer Morilee, outfits for mothers of the bride and groom by Australian label Bariano, bridesmaid dresses from Miss Anne, as well as a couture bridal piece designed and created by our very own Rhonda Langford.

This gown is a glimpse into a collection upcoming that is a Tasmanian exclusive to Strutt.  Featuring gowns handmade here in Tasmania, with a strong focus on ethical manufacturing and sourcing, reducing fashion waste, and a chance for brides Australia wide to have a one off, bespoke wedding gown with a social and environmental conscience.
