Eleganza Sposa were delighted to sponsor and support the Glasgow Caledonian University 4th Year Fashion Business Students 2013 Fashion Show. We set the students the challenge of designing exquisite wedding gowns for our in-house Eleganza Iconica Collection. Four inspiring winners were selected, one from each of the Eleganza key looks.
Dawn Beattie, a Fashion Business graduate from Glasgow Caledonian University, won the Principessa category in the Eleganza Sposa Wedding Gown Design Project. Her dress 'Aurora' perfectly fits our Principessa bridal style, which includes dramatic silhouettes that will transform the bride into a princess. We spoke with Dawn to learn more...
Which fashion designer do you most admire?
Gareth Pugh, I love his original designs and architectural shapes. His designs make such massive impact. I think he’s amazing.
How did it feel to have your design selected by Eleganza?
When I found out my design was selected, I was completely shocked. When it finally sank in I was so excited! I can’t wait to see it made up and hopefully on a beautiful bride on her wedding day.
What was the inspiration behind your design?
The foundation of my design came from “The Nutcracker Suite” by Tchaikovsky in the Walt Disney Film- “Fantasia”. I found the music and the characters created in “Fantasia” to be beautiful and inspiring.
What are your plans for the future now you have graduated?
Now that I have graduated, I plan to take some time to decide what direction I want to take my career in.
The 'Aurora' gown designed by Dawn Beattie will be unveiled in an exclusive event at our Eleganza 'Iconica' Boutique.
