Today I am delighted to showcase SophistiKatie, and their modern range of flowergirl dresses, customised and hand finished in Scotland.
Their pretty gown collection is created with rich satin, and light as a feather tulle designs, and is the work of designers Lorraine McRobert and Tracy Dunlop.
I hand over to the Brand to tell you all about what they do…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“SophistiKatie is a new range of Flower Girl dresses, designed and hand finished in Scotland.”
“Three stunning designs which can be customised from an array of colourful jewel trims or diamante appliques.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“Sophistikatie was founded in April 2015, with inspiration taken from both founders’ daughters’ Sophie and Katie to create a range of Flower Girl dresses as individual as every girl who wears it.”
What inspires you?
“Just like the bride, every Flower Girl also dreams of the perfect dress on the big day!”
“Having daughters of our own with two very different personalities, we understand the flower girl is now a very important part of the wedding party.”
“Our customisation options allow each flower girl the choice to express her personality while co-ordinating with the wedding theme.”
Do trends influence your work?
“Our launch designs are focused on the traditional Flower girl style with a modern twist through our customisations.”
“We also work closely with our current stockist to bring the bride a new range of trims which suits their personal tastes.”
“One stockist may have a specific trim exclusive to their Boutique, giving the bride the option for that all important bespoke dress.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“Since launching at the prestigious Harrogate Bridal Show in September 2015, we are at present stocked in 10 bridal boutiques across the UK, this number continues to rise weekly as our brand awareness grows.”
“We were also finalists for The Most Promising New Business at Ayrshire Chamber Business Awards 2015.”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“Our vision is for the SophistiKatie range to be available in Bridal Boutiques all over the UK and further afield.”
“We aim to build on our brand through communion range, and eventually party wear and accessories.”
“Think girls occasion wear, think SophistiKatie!”
