Creatiques , Post Awards
January 2011 saw Creatiques become winners of Best Bridal Retailer at this year’s Wedding Idea’s Award Ceremony, an award decided by an on-line voting system by clients and brides. It is truly no wonder that Andrew and Rob Pearce have not had a moment to catch their breath.
The unforgettable and rather magical win in London on 14 January has meant great things for these two dedicated chaps. They have been very busy indeed and whilst maintaining the strawberries and champagne, vibrant and exciting high level of energy that is unarguably delivered to every client, their business is flourishing and has been nominated for further national awards.
Displaying the magic that is Creatiques their speech, which was both humble and gracious, set the audience to tears as Andrew explained that winning, was on par with being awarded an Oscar for best picture in the glamorous film world. Andrew said “It was amazing, and a true testament to the hard work of the proactive team at Creatiques and in particular to Rob Pearce who’s passion and determination continues to inspire.”
Looking forward, Creatiques are proudly revealing the ‘Grace Kelly’ which is to be featured on the cover of the summer edition of Wedding Ideas magazine. The attention to detail on this gown is like no other, the ‘Grace’ dress has optional exacting accessories made solely to compliment this fabulous gown from the Creatiques collection. Chez Bec has meticulously crafted a headpiece named, ‘Kelly’ and Emma Dunaway proprietor of Eden, a bespoke florist in Southsea is creating the floral art to be aptly named ‘Monaco’.
It is clear that attention to every detail is central to Creatiques, proving why they really are deserving of the Best Bridal Retailer 2011. Furthermore, Creatiques can proudly announce that they have been nominated in The News Business Excellence Awards, for Best Small Business of the Year, and Rob Pearce has been nominated for Business Personality of the Year. These awards are taking place on 11 March 2011. Andrew and Rob, accompanied by their formidable team will be in attendance and the icing on the cake will be to bring home another award.
Subsequent to their win in London in January, Andrew and Rob had a spectacular time at the Justin Alexander show at the Royal Beach Hotel in Southsea. The weekend saw Creatiques designer wedding dresses showcased. Andrew said: “It was a splendid night, with valuable assistance from fashion students attending the local university, who were exceptional!”
With all of the above happening at lightning speed the guys have been sure not to neglect their fantastic shop window and are currently putting together a vintage style inspired display. It, without doubt, will be worth a ‘drive by’. And if this is all not enough keep this talented duo busy, Andrew and Rob are about to launch their very own couture label, ‘Inspired’. Created through listening to their clients’ wants and needs, it is a collection that really is inspired, taking on their bride’s deepest thoughts and secret wishes.
So much more than a wedding boutique, it is an award winning experience.
