Having had a consultation with Colour Me Beautiful, Mrs Hopwood had a decent understanding of what colour and style of the outfit she should be looking for to wear to her son’s wedding.

“ I approached Deni-Deni as I wanted a beautiful bag to wear to my Sons wedding. I was unsure where to start, I didn’t even have my outfit at this point, but knew I wanted a beautiful keepsake to compliment it. Denise and I had various conversations where she took her time to understand my ideas thoroughly. Denise suggested a consultation with ‘Colour Me Beautiful’ to evaluate the colours and styles of clothes that would suit me. The session proved invaluable, and I did indeed find the perfect dress! Deni-Deni used my outfit as inspiration and sourced various fabrics and beads for my approval. I am now not only the proud owner of a beautiful, hand-beaded clutch bag but also of a small beaded purse the team had created and hidden inside as a surprise. I highly recommend Deni-Deni; they went the extra mile, and because of this experience I have since commissioned various other products for myself and my family. ”

Mrs Hopwood

The Brief

After much deliberation, she chose a muted blue dress made by Cabotine with matching hat. A short curved bolero echoed the dress which had a smattering of beads dotted around the lace bodice.

Mrs Hopwood is five foot four, and so the clutch bag needed to be sympathetic to her height and yet still accommodate her necessities for the day.

What We Did

Our Zena couture clutch bag pattern was the perfect pick for this outfit. The gentle curves reflected the bolero and hat and the interior area was roomy enough. Trying to get a perfect match to the fabric was tricky as it was not pure silk and quite often a manufacturer will have fabric made bespoke for their collection. As lovely as the clutch would be left plain Denise felt it needed a lift to make it special. She researched lace and beads, and Mrs Hopwood chose from some alternative ideas. Denise identified the bodice beads to be gunmetal hex beads and gently highlighted the flap with them. During her consultation; Mrs Hopwood mentioned she would be using a tiny purse so as a surprise Denise made a coin purse too. It certainly did the trick.
