Find out more about the new affordable luxury collection from Catherine Parry, which will be unveiled at bridal trade show London Bridal Week
British bridal brand Catherine Parry are launching their new collection, Solitaire, at London Bridal Week on 25th-27th March.
The Solitaire collection will consist of 18 different designs and will be in keeping with the Catherine Parry ethos – which prioritises quality and fit, whilst remaining affordable. Suggested retail prices for the collection start at just £595, making it excellent value for both brides and retailers.
“The bridal sector is going through a period of great change and there’s a growing demand from boutiques for a good quality, design-led bridal collection priced at a level that enables them to compete with outlet and chain stores, and to satisfy the increasing number of brides with a maximum budget of around £1,000 - as well as those with more to spend,” says Maria Ryan, designer and co-founder of Catherine Parry.
Catherine Parry had an extremely successful 2017 – they almost doubled their stockist network, drawing in new retailers attracted by the excellent value, quality and customisation options offered by the label.
"Whilst Catherine Parry gowns have always offered exceptional value, with the new collection we were keen to have a lower entry point than we’ve ever had before, to give retailers and brides a high quality product with an even more affordable price tag,” comments Simon Ryan, the other half of the husband and wife team behind the brand. “The new collection offers something for every bride and every budget, with suggested retail prices from £595 to £1,635."
The duo behind the brand originally started out as retailers, giving them an invaluable insight into the industry from both sides, but they sold their boutique in October 2017 to allow them to focus on their label and repeat their incredible business growth in 2018.
Retailers visiting London Bridal Week can see Catherine Parry at stand D47, opposite the entrance to White Gallery, and can find out more about the brand via their listing in the Bridal Buyer directory.
