DIRECTOR OF WAXFLOWER BRIDAL // Kathy Holdsworth
I absolutely love everything bridal and fashion - especially when the two combine! Before opening my boutique, I was lucky enough to work in the luxury bridal industry for thirteen years. I worked for a British bridal accessories desginer and became a senior stylist and manger of a well-known bridal boutique in the UK.
This experience helped me to build a wealth of knowledge about the industry, and fuelled my passion and dream to open my very own boutique. During those eleven years I received a BA HONS Degree in Footwear Design and Making from Cordwainers at The London College of Fashion. Whilst there, I made footwear for Tommy Hilifigier, Commes des Garcons and Topshop etc. I was also lucky enough to do an amazing internship at Rebecca Taylor's Fashion House in New York, and in London at ' Browns Focus' and 'Emmy London', and in Bristol for 'Hermione Harbutt'. I learnt SO much invaluable info about the fashion industry and am proud to be able to share this through Waxflower Bridal.
From all of my amazing experiences and my designing studies at The London College of Fashion, I have come to understand and appreciate beautiful craftsmanship and the quality of pieces. I understand how the use of beautiful fabrics and the cut is SO important. A good cut and the use of exquisite fabric, makes you feel and look amazing! That is why I stock the designers that I do, they are the best!
I guess you could say I AM Waxflower Bridal! From the moment you contact the boutique, through emails, appointments, fittings and collection, it will always be me working with you through your bridal styling journey.
I am so proud of what Waxflower has to offer brides. Not only do I cherry pick my designers to give you the best of modern British bridal, I go above and beyond to give you the personal experience you deserve in finding your bridal outfit. Also, the importance of the perfect fit is something I truly believe in which is why I oversee all fittings with our experienced in-house seamstress.
During your 1 hour 30 minute appointment with me, you have Waxflower Bridal boutique all to yourself. I take pride in offering you a relaxed atmosphere where you’ll feel comfortable trying on an inspiring selection of dresses, bridal jumpsuits and separates. You’ll never be made to feel rushed in finding ‘The One’.
I absolutely adore my job and I can’t imagine doing anything other than working with my brides. With years of experience in the bridal world, I am here to guide you with my knowledge of fabrics, styling and fit. But mostly I enjoy getting to know you and helping you find the look that feels right for you and your big day.
Even after you have chosen your Waxflower Bridal dress or outfit, I love when my brides contact me for advice on their shoes or accessories. I truly care and love being a part of the entire process of putting your bridal style together to make sure you feel the very best version of yourself on your wedding day.
WHY CALL THE BOUTIQUE WAXFLOWER BRIDAL?
Why the name ‘Waxflower Bridal'? Well, the Waxflower is a beautiful small flower (perfect as a bridal bouquet filler!) which in the language of flowers means 'Everlasting love', so romantic hey!? I thought it would be a very fitting name for a boutique assisting brides in celebrating the everlasting love they have found.
