My Flosstastic Dentist!

lololol for lack of a better title. Everyone meet my brilliant, hot and fun dentist, Chanpreet!

I met Chanpreet in a very interesting way. Long story short, sometime last year, I needed a good dentist and she needed a dress made for a friend's ghanian wedding. My brother was one of her patients and so he linked us up! Woop! I got my treatments done and few months later, I got to make her a dress. Chanpreet is such a lovely, down to earth person. She owns a nice & stylish private dental practice with her husband in Victoria called Hermes(doesn't get more fashionable than this! lol ); yet she opts to work in my local NHS practice for a few days a week, because "what about the less privileged?!" such a kind heart! 

When we had a consultation, she told me the colours for the wedding were blue and yellow and she wanted a long fitted african print dress. I had to get the print and make sure that she'd like it. So when Chanpreet walks in for her fitting, and the first thing she says is: "I love the print", I feel so relieved. She has a great body and she sure turned heads at the wedding, getting me a few clients in return. Here's what she had to say about her dress: 
"I am so happy with the amazing dress Wura made me. It was so comfortable to wear and fit me perfectly! Everyone at the wedding was so impressed with my traditional outfit. I can't wait for my next bespoke dress! Thank you Wura! xo"

Me & Chanpreet :)
 Here's a few more pics at the actual wedding, I love the gold purse!

Bridesmaids - Teal & Coral

Happy New Month Everyone! :D I'm so ready to end the first half of the year with a bang! woop! Time does fly by..

Summer is here, well kindof, hence that can only mean more and more weddings! :D In February, I was approached by one of my clients to make her bridesmaids' dresses. She was initially undecisive as to whether to have bridesmaids or not, so getting their dresses was a delayed process. They had first bought off an online store, however when it was delivered, they didn't like them at all, neither did it fit well. This can be so frustrating and stressful when you only have a month to go to the wedding. Luckily, I was able to help :) She told me her colours were Teal & Coral - stunning combination. So I went looking for ideal fabric and this was the outcome. It was a lovely day, bride looked divine; her hair done by Jadoy, and few months on, they are going strong! Thank God :)

MOH's hair also done by Jadoy
