Rania Hatoum Bridal & Occasions – we’ll be bringing 20 pieces from the full 2019 bridal collection and the classic best sellers.

What’s the signature style of your brand?

It’s very contemporary. Dresses are made from luxurious fabrics and European lace and embellished with abstract beadwork and embroidery.

Are there any key features retailers can expect from your pieces?

Expect something new from my Fall/Winter 2019 collection, ‘The Sleepless City’. With sleek and clean silhouettes with modern detailing and luxurious fabrics, this collection exemplifies the motto “less is more”.

What are your most popular styles?

Our best seller by far has been the ‘Marina’ gown from the 2018 collection. ‘Marina’ is a strapless sweetheart body contouring Italian baroque lace applique with a abstract detailing mermaid gown.

How many stockists do you have?

We don’t currently have any stockists in the UK, which is why we are very excited to attend The Harrogate Bridal Show.

We do, however, have over 15 stockists in the US, and then our flagship store in Hong Kong.

Why is The Harrogate Bridal Show so important to attend?

I am so excited for our participation at The Harrogate Bridal Show as it will be the first time I showcase my 2019 bridal collection in the UK.

When working in my flagship store in Hong Kong, a lot of my customers were British expats.

The numerous inquiries from British brides reassures me that my designs are perfect for the European audience. I really hope to break into the British bridal market and make many more brides’ dream come true.

Make sure you stop by and see these stunning designs by on stand number KS9 at Harrogate.
