Spilling The Tea With Ivory White
We’re over the moon to be having a catch-up with the lovely Sophie, the brand-new owner at Ivory White, a super chic bridal studio in Duffield. This stylish space has some ridiculously gorgeous gowns gracing the rails and your experience here is guaranteed to be personal, luxury and memorable for all the right reasons. So, let’s have a natter with Sophie to find out more…
Sophie, it’s lovely to hear from you! How did you get into the Wedding Industry?
“Prior to owning Ivory White I was working as a Designer Fashion Buyer for the beautiful Young Ideas Boutique. I realised my love for bridal wear when I got married myself in 2018. I had always dreamt of owning my own business and when I heard the news that Melissa the previous owner wanted a change of direction, I jumped at the chance to take over Ivory White. Already a stunning established business that Melissa had developed over the last couple of years she was so incredible and taught me the details of how to run the shop based in the centre of the beautiful village of Duffield.”
Wow, what a journey so far! What are your plans for Ivory White going forwards?
“For me it has been important to update Ivory White and put my own spin on it, my main aim in this process has been to try to offer dresses that I feel you haven’t seen before with unique pieces for every bride as well as offering something for every budget with dresses ranging from £1000-£3000. Over the past year I have worked really hard to grow the business and have been overwhelmed by how much it has come on leaps and bounds from changing the colour scheme to liven up the shop to planning lots of in store events for 2020 getting our brides involved not only in finding their perfect dress but also becoming part of the Ivory White Family.
Tell us a little bit about the bridal designers that are stocked at Ivory White?
“I have recently introduced absolutely amazing brands including Pronovias one of the world’s biggest global bridal brands, Watters offering beautiful premium contempy gowns, Willowby by Watters for the perfect Boho look as well as brand new collections from our incredible Essense of Australia who keep on top of the latest bridal trends and offer the best sparkle around.”
What do you love about being a part of the Wedding Industry?
“My main passion is to make women feel amazing and I always strive to provide the best service as well as a helping hand in to finding ‘the one’ for our brides with my experience of working within fashion as well as understanding myself how difficult it can be to find that perfect dress for such an important day.”
