Attire Bridal - Apr/Mar 2020 (Issue 76)

13 Hello from your new editor! If you read our January/February issue you’ll know Demelza has moved on to pastures new – we miss her terribly and wish her all the best! This is my first venture into the trade side of weddings, as I was previously the editor of one of our consumer bridal titles for just shy of three years. I have to admit I was daunted at first, but now I’ve found my feet I’m loving my new role! I can honestly say the emails and phone calls I’ve had welcoming me has been overwhelming – you bridal lot are a lovely bunch and I can’t wait to meet you at all the 2020 shows. Speaking of exhibitions, we’ve got nine pages dedicated to the places to see and be seen over the next fewmonths – think London Bridal FashionWeek, White Gallery, Interbride and Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week. I’ve also been busy catching up with bridal designers worldwide, from Israel’s Galia Lahav to the UK’s Suzanne Neville and Paul Zeni Bridal. And let’s not forget our super retailers, including an exclusive chat with TWIA retailer of the year Bellissima Weddings… I hope that you enjoy my first issue – please do reach out at with any feedback on how you think I’m doing!
