My current favourite dress is definitely one that divides opinion! We had her on display at a recent wedding fayre, and of the ladies who passed by our stand, as many said they hated it as loved it!
The gown is called Rita and whilst I can see how it can be challenging to traditionalists who expect a bridal gown to look a certain way, I rarely get as excited about a dress as I did about Rita!
This gown is quirky and sexy and a real attention grabber! It features a slim a-line silhouette, a flattering belt at the waist and a sweetheart neckline, all of which have the makings of a pretty dress. But what makes this gown so unique is the fabrication – it is made up entirely of tiny 3D fabric flowers! From a distance the texture is barely detectable, but the closer you get the more you can see the petals and flower shapes. It is so different and definitely fits the bill for girls who are looking for an unusual wedding dress.
This gown suits more athletic figures and girls with small busts.
Be warned: This is a gown that not all your guests will understand. Some might even tell you they hate it!

“Good Foundations start in the Shower”
As a Hairdresser/Session Stylist, I get a vast range of textures and conditions of hair through my hands and my message is always the same – Good Foundations to all hair starts in the shower with your choice of Shampoo and Conditioner, its Critical! My favourite allegory is that your hair is a delicate fibre and if you bought an expensive dress made with delicate fibres, you wouldn’t wash it in washing-up liquid ~ the same goes with your hair !
Moisture Repair Shampoo
You will be pleased to know that I have just found some great foundations for you in the form of KMS Moist Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.
The Shampoo gently cleanses the hair in a luxurious lather while at the same time revitalizing and re-hydrating its moisture levels. It cleanses the hair from root to tip with the first shampoo. In the second shampoo it injects a blend of Aloe & Vanilla which is held in the technology of the Moist Repair Range . This product fuses the latest innovations and ingredient,s inspired and extracted from nature. So the Repair and Hydration starts at the very beginning, laying the foundations for Repair and Condition to build on.
The Conditioner now starts to cement the foundations in place. Moisture Repair Conditioner will Repair and Reconstruct the damage internally, building the hair and making it stronger. Therefore, reducing breakage and damage, making hair less tangled, Moisture Rich and beautifully Glossy.
