'Exclusive Originals' is the label for my online brand Coral Turner Couture ready-to-wear unique one-of-a-kind dresses, they ensure you can happily attend a wedding knowing that no-one else will have the same dress as you. I've seen it happen, two women turn up to an event wearing the exact same dress, its no fun, unless of course you are twins and planned it that way!
I've designed a capsule collection of dresses, that are made in unusual fabrics, they are 'fabrics with personality', a reflection of the wearer, some are vibrant, bold and distinctive in a variety of styles. Long sleeves, or sleeveless dresses, short hems, maxi length, below the knee, fitted and loose fitting it's a small intimate collection.
Whilst making these dresses, I was thinking of what you would wear as an engagement party dress, or meeting your future in laws for the first time. Partying with your girls, attending the wedding; or are you The Mother of the Bride? The going away dress as you wave goodbye, these are my specialist areas, all with a couture finish alongside attention to detail.
I also provide a custom-made service at my studio in London a signature label simply titled Coral Turner; a consultation by appointment starts a conversation. At the consultation we discuss your requirements in terms of design, fit, fabric, what accessories do you intend to wear with this garment, and it doesn't have to be a dress; some of my ladies have tailored suits, or separates. Here we look at timescale and budget, as you have to allow time for fittings, its a fun process as we work on your desired outfit together. There is a consultation fee due at this first meeting, however, when you decide to go ahead that will be taken from your final invoice.
As a dress designer I am interested in the individual. I do believe that when you look fantastic, you feel fantastic, that's my ultimate goal.
