Every Woman Deserves a Unique Couture Gown
Victoria Park based couturier Angelina Arcaro says every woman deserves a one off Couture gown to complement their own uniqueness.
Arcaro Couture creates exclusive gowns to match any woman’s taste, shape and age. The newly released Arcaro Bridal Collection 2016 was designed with this in mind. Every gown is an original.
“The Arcaro mission is to show the ladies of Australia that every woman is beautiful,” said Ms Arcaro, the founder of Arcaro Couture.
“Whether a woman is size 6 or size 26 or has any figure type they can look stunning with the right gown design, incorporating good cut, shape and fit”.
Ms Arcaro will work with individual brides-to-be, and other clients, to create their dream gown. Arcaro Couture brides are encouraged to be as creative as their imagination allows. Ms Arcaro is able to guide them to a flattering design outcome.
“I give my full and personal consideration to every bride I work with,” she said. “I design a gown for them and them only.”
“I enjoy taking a bride on a journey from conception of the gown, to creation, through to completion. This is the ‘Couture Experience’.
“Most of the brides I work with admit to wanting to look as slim as possible in their gowns. There is nothing more rewarding than a bride walking down the aisle knowing that she looks amazing in an Arcaro gown that she had a hand in designing”.
With a Diploma in Fashion Design and more than 40 years of experience in the fashion industry, Ms Arcaro has a special ability to help create her clients’ dream gowns.
“My off the rack designs are influenced by season trends, but I am not governed by that. Arcaro gowns are different from the norm, and designed with the objective of creating lengthening and slimming appearances to suit any height, shape or size and every gown is a one off.” said Ms Arcaro.
“There is a gown to suit every woman in the diverse 2016 Arcaro Couture collection. I answer the call that many women have been making for years, that there is ‘little choice for fuller or unconventionally figured women’”.
“This just simply isn’t true anymore!”
