I get about 30 to as much as 50 new inquiries every day and I try to answer each and everyone personally. Most are non Filipino overseas brides asking me to replicate some wedding gowns I’ve done for past brides. I have a lot of emails too from stockists overseas expressing interest to retail my gowns. Manila-based brides asking for appointments and brides whose wedding dates are closed already in my calendar.
I am overwhelmed but very grateful.
This has always been my dream and really, I cannot ask for anything more.
I have loving and very grateful brides.
I have an excellent staff that takes pride making brides happy.
I have a loving and supportive husband.
And most of all, I have beautiful and growing kids.
Suddenly, I realised I want more.
I want more time. Time to devote to my family and time to cater to more brides.
I’ve always considered it a privilege that these brides want us to be a part of their most special day.
But really I – as a person – can only do so much. And I cannot customise each and every gown. It will drain me, burn me out, and that is my biggest fear.
I do not want to lose the passion, but I also do not want this privilege taken for granted.
I want to do more.
Thus the birth of my RTW line.
This will enable more brides to wear our dresses.
This will address the stockists who want to re-sell my dresses.
This will lower the hurdles with a better system to accomplish more.
Just more ..
Took me months to think of gowns that will reflect how I see any bride.
Soft, fluid, silhouettes that celebrate the feminine figure, details that sing, gowns that will reflect the happiness every bride feels inside.
After all, it is still a girl thing 🙂
Months of preparations, of fine tuning the sizes.
Endless discussions with our in-house illustrator, finalising the embroidery patterns.
Weeks of doing and re-doing the embellishments with my in-house embroiderers and beaders.
Assembling the production line and training them to do more.
And now, we are ready.
Now more brides, local and foreign, can experience how it is to be a Veluz bride. To wear something so well thought of. To wear something that has been done with so much pride.
I hope and pray that brides will love this as much as we do.
I and my team are so proud to present the Veluz Ready-To-Wear wedding gown collection for 2013.
Angled pictures and detail shots to follow in the next few days.
