The Joy of Bows…
One of our many passions at Nicki Macfarlane is a beautiful bow – we never tire of seeing them on our dresses! When Nicki was preparing for her latest article for the lovely website Wedding Planner, there was a general consensus in the office that bows epitomise happiness! Whether it’s a perfectly wrapped gift, a little girl’s hair, a beautiful party dress or a wedding day – these happy things are all enhanced by a beautiful bow.
Many of our flower girl dresses, First Holy Communion dresses and party dresses feature a silk sash bow which is tied at the back – a look that exudes tradition and a quintessential Britishness that we’re extremely proud of.
Some of our styles have bows tied at the front, such as Claudette or our organza bows give a different, ethereal look (see Organza Mirabelle). When it comes to accessories, our love of bows continues.
We are often told that we make tying a bow look easy, but it’s fair to say we do get a lot of practice! Over the years, some of our clients have asked us how to tie the perfect bow and so, with this in mind, we decided to create a video which gives you a step by step guide to tying a sash bow on a dress.
