2011 kicks off with the Chevy Chase Bridal Sample Sale, where dozens of gowns are offered between 50-80% off. This twice-annual event gives brides on a budget the opportunity to shop many designers normally out of their price range. Unlike other fashion samples, bridal samples are sized 8-10; Chevy Chase Bridal’s expert in-house ateliers can alter many samples up or down to perfectly fit a wide range of sizes.
The winter shopping season, which typically caters to brides with late spring weddings, also includes trunk shows featuring the collections of Legends by Romona Keveza, known for her high-style, classically designed gowns, Simone Carvalli (dramatic gowns with expert craftsmanship that are a great value); Justin Alexander, which offers modern interpretations of classic silhouettes, as well as Chevy Chase Bridal area exclusive Badgley Mischka, known to be worn on the red carpets of Hollywood.
For spring, two designers exclusive to Chevy Chase Bridal, Rosa Clará and Pattis, will be featured in addition to famed bridal couturier, Lazaro’s mid-priced gown line, Tara Keely, and renowned bridal designer Stephen Yearick,
Rosa Clará is based out of Barcelona, Spain, and infuses the romance of the city into their design aesthetic. Rosa Clará has worked with designers including Karl Lagerfeld and design house Christian Lacroix to design capsule collections.
Founded in 2007 by mother and daughter team, Petty and Angel Yu, Pattis is new to both Chevy Chase Bridal and the bridal scene. Pattis emphasizes feminine and fairytale-like details with modernly romantic creations.
In May, Chevy Chase Bridal underscores their eveningwear expertise with their Mother of the Bride Trunk Show, featuring gowns from designers including Catherine Regehr, Enzoani, Fiesta by Rosa Clará, Daymor and many more.
“We pride ourselves on not only offering brides exquisite wedding gowns and a great selection, but also creating the best dress shopping experience a bride can have,” says Nick Kassman, owner of Chevy Chase Bridal. “We know how important the wedding dress is on your big day, and trunk shows are the perfect way for brides to see entire collections, save, and get the one-on-one attention they deserve.”
Chevy Chase Bridal is located in Mazza Gallerie, Floor Two at 5300 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Washington, DC. Appointments are recommended for all trunk shows; a 10% savings is offered for all trunk show orders placed.
