A lovely girl, Laure, emailed me saying ‘ Will you give my brand a chance?’ … well when I got the photos through it was a no brainer … these dresses are right up my boulevard, and I can tell you its not everyday that I get emailed things that I want to feature on LMW. If it wasn’t for the fact that I ‘have’ to wear a bra I would have picked something like this for my own wedding – so stylish, cool and original. I LOVE these. I also like to showcase up and coming designers on LMW, whilst Ugo Zaldi are french, they do sell in lots of UK boutiques.
The label, Ugo Zaldi, was created was created 8 years ago by Laure’s 2 brothers – initially to create affordable cocktail dresses. Then, 2 year ago, they decided to do launch a bridal range, with the belief that any bride should be able find a great dress, in good material, with luxury styles, at an affordable price.
“We have always been attached to the purity of our styles and the fluidity of the dresses. Elegance, contemporary and chic spirit, are our main target for each creation. We are not that into “puffy” dresses, and have noticed that many girls wanted to find new refreshing bridal styles! The dresses can be worn for any wedding styles, eve for 2nd weddings, weddings abroad etc. Our dresses are exclusively made with 100% silk, and our embroideries are all Swarovski certificated and hand-made.”
For this sort of quality and style I think they are really great value with dresses starting at approx 700€ for a short bridal dress, and going up to about 1500€ for a long dress (available in UK 6 to UK 22). What are we thinking ladies??
