    Natalie Chan Presents: Classic Capsule Collection

    One autumnal morning we took to the beautiful Lippincott Dining Room, inside Auckland’s most iconic department store Smith and Caugheys to stage our latest bridal photoshoot. Fresh flowers and greenery by Cartier for Flowers adorned the spacious room, with glassware and candles by Creative Style while chairs were provided by design specialists Kartell. The gorgeous bouquets also by Cartier for Flowers were held together with trailing silk ribbons by Feathers and Stone. Nicole and Zoe from Unique Model Management were the faces for the newest range with their hair tended to by Dry and Tea and makeup by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, wedding photographer Kirsty Peta Stone with assistance by Kimberly Elizabeth rounded out the dream team. The fanciful footwear was from Mi Piaci and all dresses and headwear from Natalie Chan.

    New Zealand Weddings Show Backstage Diary

     We loved being part of the New Zealand Weddings Magazine Show at New Zealand Fashion Week this year, and today we bring you a few backstage snaps of how our days went while we were backstage dressing models and preparing our collection for the catwalk!

    Models Rebecca, Sophie and Ariel in our latest designs. Pre-show its important for designers to hold fittings with models so we can allocate gowns to the girls that are best showcased for each individual figure.

     
    Designers often have show cards with all of the information of the outfit that each model is to wear, this ensures things run smoothly on the day and helps backstage volunteers get an idea of how the gown is to be styled.
     
     
    Hair and makeup is vital in helping to tell the story of the whole look. The team from Bobbi Brown and Joico did a wonderful job.

    Rebecca showcased the finale outfit in our capsule collection, this is of course usually reserved for the most standout look, which we thought appropriate for this bold veil and gown which featured a three metre long train!

    'Yours Ethereally' Bridesmaids

    In conjunction with the release of the new bridal gowns in the 'Yours Ethereally' capsule collection, comes a smaller collection of ‘pick and mix’ bridal separates. The premise is simple; you select one bodice design from three options, to co-ordinate with a tulle skirt of your preferred hemline (knee, calf, or floor-length) and in rose pink, grey or ivory. Styled with luxurious cashmere and dainty headbands these timeless and romantic bridesmaids styles complement a Natalie Chan Bride in the most charming way.

    All of the designs are available for viewing in the boutique or online here
