Bridal company Anne Barge announced an exciting initiative: A new trunk show that will offer more wedding dress sizes! Instead of the existing size 4-8 samples, the company's Curve Couture Trunk Show will feature U.S. sample sizes 16-20.
"We're hoping that with Curve Couture, our brides will be able to see themselves in a dress with a realistic fit," founder and designer Anne Barge tells us. "She will still have to use her imagination to picture the look on her groom's face, but for now, we've helped her find the dress of her life!"
President of the Atlanta-based company Shawne Jacobs said that there is demand for more variety of high-end wedding dress sample sizes from clientele and stores across the U.S. So, they listened and launched the new initiative, which will feature Anne Barge's 15 best-selling styles from past and current seasons. "Introducing the Curve Couture Trunk Show is our new way of continuing Anne's longtime legacy of designing classic bridal gowns for real, beautiful women," Jacobs said.
The Curve Couture Trunk Show is kicking off on December 2nd at Mark Ingram Atelier in New York City and will continue to travel throughout the U.S. indefinitely.
