TRUNK SHOW: Stephanie James Couture – Jan 30/31st

*** Update: all appointments for Sat. Jan. 30th are now filled,
we are now booking trunk show appointments for Sun. Jan 31st ***


We are thrilled to announce our first designer trunk show at Sash & Bustle!

We are starting the new year off with a trunk show with one of our fave designers, Stephanie James Couture. Stephanie’s collection is a *stunning* tribute to the vintage gowns and suits from years gone by. In my opinion, no one does a tea-length wedding gown like Stephanie. And the range of options and colours for each gown is incredible. Stephanie works directly with her brides to customize their dresses, adding a strap, changing the colour of a crinoline, or adding a bodice from a completely different dress are all possibilities when every dress is produced in house, in the designer’s own studio.

Stephanie herself will be flying up from California to spend a chilly Toronto weekend with us on January 30 & 31st. We will be hosting brides from 10am-6pm on both days, and appointments are booking quickly! If you would like to view the entire Stephanie James collection and meet the designer herself, this is your only chance in Canada!

Sunday Window Shopping: The Hilda by Kathlin Argiro


This is one of my favourite bridesmaid dresses in the whole shop! The “Hilda” by Kathlin Argiro is sophisticated, yet still sassy. And in this perfect shade of peacock blue silk, she would be perfect for a snowy Winter wedding. Flower and sash optional, but I think they also make the dress destination wedding worthy!

Dahlia is Delightful!

Our Stephanie James Couture fans will love the newest addition to the Sash & Bustle collection. The “Dahlia” has arrived! She is oh so pretty – gorgeous silk taffeta with a pleated bodice trim and hemline. And for an edgier bride, we had the crinoline dyed black! Black and ivory weddings are so popular right now, and the Dahlia would fit right in! If the black crinoline doesn’t work for you, don’t worry, you can have a simple ivory crinoline, pale blue, or one of the other dozen or so colour options. The coloured crinolines are a super fun way to customize your dress!
