After winning the regional award for Yorkshire and the North East in November at the biggest wedding industry awards ceremony, Middlesbrough based designer Kate Fearnley has scooped the prestigious national award and the accolade of Wedding Dress Designer of 2019.
The event was held in London at the “Cafe de Paris” and was attended by the top wedding industry suppliers in the country. The Wedding Industry Awards are open to wedding professionals who deliver all aspects of services to the highest standards. Past clients vote for their winner after completing a questionnaire, where a series of questions were answered and scored. The judging panel took this information alongside lots of other criteria to make a final decision.
Kate is a well-known name on Teeside and has been established for the last 16 years since starting her Linthorpe Road Business. In the early design days, she was known predominantly for dressing celebrity clientele. She is no stranger to awards either, having won several high-profile accolades including 'Young Fashion Entrepreneur at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards. Kate is now known mostly for her stunning and much sought-after Bridal and Prom designs.
Kate's reaction to the award win is one of delight and surprise. “Winning this award really is one of the highlights of my career, we pride ourselves on giving the highest quality of service to all of our customers. We listen to their ideas, sketch and plan the designs, advise and carefully choose fabrics, tweak designs to give the absolute perfect fit. We want to create our client their dream dress, and we are delighted that we have been recognised for giving the unique experience that we do. We are over the moon, and we really are looking forward to working with lots more brides and prom girls.”
All of Kate's designs are bespoke and handmade for each individual client, everything is made on site in the design studios.
