  1. ETM-front cover

    After an early but exciting start at Erica Stacey HQ, a super talented bunch of Manchester based companies got together to collaborate on a creative shoot, resulting in some stunning images.

    At Erica Stacey Bridalwear we offer a fabulous ‘couture’ service where we work closely with each client to design and create them a stunning dress for any special occasion.

    Wanting to promote our made to measure evening and prom wear side of our business, we teamed up with the fabulous local photography studio Love Exclusive who are based in Deansgate Mews, just off Deansgate in Manchester.

    The hair and makeup was beautifully done by Helen Masters Makeup & Hair Styling, assisted by Leanne Rose Makeup and complimented the gowns perfectly.

    The stunning jewellery and accessory designer Ann McKavney of Eleventh Heaven kindly lent us some stunning pieces to complete the look.

    The new Great Gatsby movie opens in UK cinema's on May 10th and we couldn't resist the temptation to post some images to celebrate the occassion. We could pretend that we are trying to make a meaningful comparison between the roaring twenties and how after a time of great hardship following world war one America enjoyed a prosperous recovery; and that maybe we will enjoy such an economic recovery in the next year or 2 ................ but the fact is we just love beautiful dresses!

    The original novel was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and took 3 years to complete finally being published in 1925. There have been several screen versions of The Great Gatsby with the most famous (until now) being scripted by Francis Ford Coppola in 1974. It starred Mia Farrow as Daisy and Robert Redford as Jay Gatsby; hopefully the new film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire (yes spiderman) will live just as long in the memory.

    Enjoy a nostalgic look at some iconic images of the era; we have shamelessly added some stunning shots of the shoot we did last year at Morecambe's fabulous art deco hotel, The Midland. The shoot took place on the first Monday in March 2012 and the temperature on the beach was 21 degrees celsius, what a difference a year makes...................roll on Summer! Special thanks to Jenny and Keith from McAvoy Photography, Ade from Verdure florists, Hayley the model and Jeni Morris the make up artist.
