Coast Bridal Collection. In the Hotseat

Ellerie Bandeau Dress Coast

This afternoon i am so thrilled to be getting to know WWW sponsor Coast. I am joined by Kim; the design director at Coast who is here to share all about her job at Coast and the dresses they design.

Coast not only have an abundance of stylish and chic occasion dresses and accessories perfect for bridesmaids. But they also have a swoon worthy bridal range, with wedding dresses and accessories at a great price point. My favourite wedding dress has to be the Ellerie Bandeau dress above, oh so pretty. I know many of you chose Coast for your bridesmaids too and what a great choice you made.

Hi Kim, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?


I am the design director of Coast, I am married and I have fantastic 6 year old daughter.  We were married in NYC at county hall, after my husband proposed to me at the very top of the Guggenheim museum.  For a man that is very scared of heights it was quite a big moment for him as well as for me! It was all very fast and fun, we arrived in New York, he proposed and we were married a few days later! We didn’t even have a witness – we had to beg a man with the couple getting married after us to join our wedding too. Luckily he said yes!


What do you love/dislike about your job?


I love travelling all over the world with my job to find inspiration that will inspire the collections we design. I love all the people I have been lucky enough to work with in all the countries I visit as part of my role.  I also get a real buzz when I am in stores meeting customers as I love helping women feel confident, to look and feel their very best especially when it Is for the biggest day of their life.  There is nothing better than a satisfied customer.

What do you aim to achieve for your clients?


Coast aim to help women feel beautiful, confident and comfortable, there is nothing worse than a dress that doesn’t fit or flatter.  You have to feel a million dollars on your wedding day and those photographs last a forever so the dress has to be just right.

How Would you Describe the style of your dresses?


Coast creates wedding dresses and accessories that are a little bit more unique and individual than the average traditional style wedding dresses. We have a real signature in our brand handwriting, the attention to detail and beautiful fabrics that you expect from Coast.  We also do not make many pieces of each wedding dress, so they are really quite limited edition.  Our dresses are premium; they are as lovely as designer dresses without the designer price tags.

Do you have any tips for couples in selecting wedding suppliers?


Always research and check out the customer feedback of any specialist you are planning to use for your wedding.  Start a mood board of all your ideas.  Sign up for Pinterest, its brilliant.  My biggest tip is making sure you look like yourself on your wedding day!
