As some of you may know I have a long career in bridal dressmaking. Today marks a huge day in that career as I have handed the keys of my bridal dressmaking shop back to the landlord and hung up the wedding dresses for now.
Running 2 businesses over the last 2.5 years has been tiring, stressful and very overwhelming at times. Especially when in September it is the peak season for both industries. September this year is also when I am due to give birth to my Husband and I’s first child. Seeing what 2016 had in store for us I knew something had to change. After many tears and sleepless nights I decided it was time to focus all my energy in to Glam Fit Bikinis and close the Bridal Shop. It was a tough decision to make as it is my first business that I've invested lots of my time, money and my brainpower into but it has been the best thing I have ever done. My mind is finally free to 100% focus on creating and designing some of the world’s best competition bikinis.
We have been busy over the last few weeks building our dream shop. We have done the entire shop fit ourselves, everything from demolishing the old ugly 70's décor to building new walls, laying floors, painting and installing new racks and mirrors just to name a few. Anyone who has had children knows how tiring doing all this can be when pregnant, but it has been totally worth it.
I loved designing the new shop. I wanted it to feel glamourous and modern and have gone with a Rose Gold/Minimalist theme. Our bikinis are high quality pieces and there would be no better way to show them off than in a shop that complimented them perfectly. We have big ornate copper mirrors off set with minimalist white racks and hanger and inspirational quotes in the office area to help keep the team motivated throughout the day. We all love having the room to work freely without being in each other’s space is amazing. I have no idea how we worked out in the back room of the bridal shop for so long!
I am excited to announce that the shop will be open for business as of the June. Keep an eye out for the exact date as we will be having a huge sale in store and online on all custom bikini orders to celebrate. We can't wait to share this with all of you!
