“Inspired” at Creatiques in Southsea, Portsmouth A wedding shop in Portsmouth has celebrated the launch of its own collection of dresses.

Andrew and Rob Pearce invited friends and business pals to enjoy a glass of fizz and take a look at their “Inspired” range at the award-winning Creatiques in Marmion Road, Southsea, last night.

The launch comes ahead of the debut of the dresses in Wedding Ideas Magazine, the organisation which awarded Creatiques the title of Wedding Retailer of the Year in January.

Andrew said, “It’s amazing to see what we have designed come to life. People have fallen in love with the collection and to see it in national press is amazing too.”

Rob said “Brides have cried when they’ve tried them on. We’ve already sold half the dresses.”

The designs have been inspired by feedback from Creatiques’ customers and all the models and photos have been created with input from local companies from around Portsmouth.

One person who is particularly delighted with the collection is the bride who wore the first dress, Frances Painter. Frances, a hair stylist at the adjoining salon, has had the dress she wore at her wedding in April named after her.

Frances said, “I feel very lucky and honoured that one of the dresses is called ‘Frances’. I love the Inspired dresses. They are all very unique but there’s something for everyone.”

The dresses can be seen in this month’s Wedding Ideas magazine which is out today (June 16th). Alternatively to arrange a viewing in person, telephone Creatiques on 023 9282 6622. Further information can be found at
