White Couture is honored to host a trunk show for a bridal legend, Reem Acra, this weekend!    Beginning Friday, April 23rd her entire collection will be in the studio.  Reem Acra is  an  inspiring designer who pushes bridal fashion forward and allows her brides to believe that any dream can come true. Like a fairy godmother, no matter what kind of gown a bride has dreamt about wearing on her wedding day, Reem Acra has created it.    She has  designed gowns that are modern works of art and  are unique enough to be displayed in museum and galleries. 

Celebrities and brides alike are knocking  at her door to wear one of her gowns . Many gowns are touched with unique embellishments  and  every gown is creatively constructed. One of our favorite gowns that is currently on display at White Couture showcases her style.   The silk satin gown that swirls and twists around the body with sophisticated origami pleating and then struck with embroidery. 


Reem Acra has made it possible for many brides to own their own dream gown: “There’s something for all my brides, for all the different price levels. There’s something that everyone can afford.” REEM ACRA


Reem Acra Trunk Show is this week on beginning Friday, April 23 – Saturday, May 1.  Schedule your fitting! Take advantage of special promotions and gifts all weekend long. Appointments are required so make yours soon! (435) 655-3180

Fashion Friday | New York Shopping Spree | White Couture Designer Bridal & Tuxedo

Friday, December 4th, 2009

The team at White Couture wants to share a little bit of our shopping experience in New York.  Each time we go to New York we get to meet with our designers and attend runway show after runway show.  It sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it?  Well it is fun but exhausting at the same time.  We run; literally run from show to show.  We stop for an occasional pretzel from our favorite street vendors and then run to the next visit.  We study the new “look” of the season and determine which of the styles best fit our clientele.  That’s where you come in!  We think of our clients throughout our trip.  We want to be sure to bring you the collections that you’re looking for.  This season we were amazed with the number of ballgowns and modified ballgowns we saw.  Guess what?  Ballgowns are back baby!  Of course I happen to know this makes many of you happy.  We all want to feel like Cinderella but now, well there’s an excuse.  Ballgowns are making the come back we were all hoping for.  Styles come and go with pick ups setting the trend a few years ago, a splash of color in a gown is still popular, and now…ballgowns.  Wait until you start shopping the newest collection.  You’ll love it.  And it isn’t just the designers you would expect to introduce ballgowns.  They are all over the place.

We were lucky enough to travel with our good friend and fabulous photographer Pepper Nix.  She documented much more then runway shows.  So maybe it isn’t so much of a stressful trip but I didn’t lie when I said an exhausting one.  We boarded our flight in Salt Lake City at midnight and landed at JFK at 6:10 am.  We headed straight to the hotel.  Our room wasn’t ready so we made ourselves at home in the bathroom located in the gorgeous lobby of our hotel.  If I remember correctly it had six sinks and Pepper used 3 of them to spread out her luggage and “stuff”.  We “freshened” up and then we were off to our first show at 8:00 am.  Then off to the next at 9:00 am.  We were off again at 10:00 am.  Well we finally made it to show number four and Pepper now had a clear understanding of Bridal Market in New York.  She begged us to stop and rest so we finally agreed to let her rest in the lobby of the Essex Hotel while we attended the show.  After an hour we came back to get Pepper and we found her laying down and sound asleep in the lobby!  LOL! It would have been a great photo but of course she has rigged her camera so only she knows how to operate it.  I hope the description creates the picture for you.  Pepper we had so much fun with you.  We can’t wait for the next market.  Thanks again for traveling with us and documenting the trip.  We hope you had fun.

We invite every current bride, future bride, and friends to stop by and see us at White Couture.  The entire new Fall 2010 collection we just viewed at Bridal Market will be available beginning January 1, 2010.  The designers have guaranteed every piece will be in stores no later then April 30th!  Call us if you’re looking for a particular gown.  We’ll be able to tell you when it will arrive or if you can’t wait, we’ll borrow it from the designer and have it shipped for a private fitting just for you.  See you soon.

Fashion Friday: Meet Reem Acra in Park City

Friday, October 30th, 2009

WhiteCouturewReemA highlight to our job  is going to NY twice a year to shop!  Yes, we get to go to NY and shop until we drop.  Oh and we drop.  While we were in NY last week we visited with Reem Acra.  You might see Reem in photographs and see her amazing evening wear on the red carpet but we were able to view her new bridal collection with her.  I can guarantee you won’t see some designers with the fame and reputation that Reem has joining her retailers on the floor to view her new gowns.  Reem is one of the special ones.  She cares about the girl that chooses to wear her gowns.  It is a privilege for her to hear about her clients and it is an honor to help you select the perfect gown.  I wish all of our clients could meet these wonderful designers.  To some it is a job and to others, well they just care.  Our bridal stylist Christina Hadlow graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.  During her interview with White Couture she told me how her role model was Reem Acra for many reasons but specifically for her talent.  It was a great pleasure to introduce Christina to Reem Acra during this trip.  Pepper Nix was there to capture it on film.  It was one of those days like sitting in the living room with your friends just talking about fashion; I wish you could have all been there.  View her new collection online or stop by and see it for yourself.  Reem Acra will be in Park City and traveling with her entire new collection April 23-24, 2010 for our trunk show.  Don’t miss the opportunity to get to know one of the most genuine and incredibly talented designers of all time!


Fashion Friday: Part 2 New York Bridal Market-Reem Acra

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Always amazing.  Reem Acra!  What a collection.  Reem was known for lots of embroidery, and fabulous ballgowns and really pricey gowns.  Well Reem still has fabulous embroidery for those that are looking for it but has introduced the use of tulle like no one else.  Her ballgowns and A-lines are sensational.  She introduced a collection that is full of modified ballgowns (for the girl that still wants to feel like a princess but doesn’t want the ballroom), shawls, boleros, some embroidered and some very simple.  Simple and Reem really don’t go together but WOW!  Wait until you see the collection due to arrive to White Couture January 2010.  You won’t believe the price!  Every gown under $3,500 and some as low as $2,000!  A Reem Acra at those prices is unbelievable.  We were so excited we bought more then we thought but so worth it.  We want to bring you as much of the collection as possible.  To see it all, well you’ll have to reserve your spot at our trunk show April 23-24, 2010.  Every gown from the collection will make it’s way to Park City!  Here is the sneak peak…Be sure to follow the blog.  We will bring you many more updates on new trends and collections and unveil one more new designer White Couture is bringing to Utah just for you!


Fashion Friday: New York Bridal Market

Friday, October 16th, 2009

NYC_New_York_Lower_Manhattan_and_Battery_Park_from_HelicopterNew York-Here we come!  Going to the Big Apple is one of the many things we look forward to each year at White Couture.  Twice per year our stylists have the opportunity to meet with designers and attend runway shows to determine the styles and collections we will be offering you–our customer!  The hussle of New York is great but imagine attending 20 runway shows in 36 hours.  That’s about what it takes to make sure we have looked at every new gown available.  We welcome your comments and suggestions.  Please let us know some of your favorite designers and we’ll be sure to check them out and talk about bringing them to Utah for you.  A this year’s market we’ll be visiting with new designers and those we already carry.  We’ll schedule trunk shows.  Do you know what a trunk show offers?  Trunk shows are an opportunity for the designer or a representative to travel with the newest collection and bring it to our studio for you to try on and enjoy.  There are many advantages to attending a trunk show but the top 3 reasons you should attend include:

1.  Special promotions and discounts are offered.
2.  Design modifications may be done with the designer in person.
3.  View and try-on every gown in the current collection.  Some may not be available at the studio on a regular basis.

Don’t let a trunk show pass you by.  Many trunk shows are offered throughout the year.  We invite you to attend those that interest you.

Be sure to follow our blog and leave a comment.  This month you could be the winner of a $100 Gift Certificate for your shopping pleasure!  Next week and during the month of October, Fashion Friday will bring you photos from the runway shows we attend, new designers available at White Couture, and designer interviews for a special post of  “meet the designers”.  Join us on Fashion Fridays for the latest trends.  Pepper Nix will be traveling with us at this year’s market to photograph gowns, designers and hot new trends!  Don’t miss these updates.
