"We'd pull out of the publication tomorrow! We want these images in Vogue and we need those to be embargoed until we get published!"


Our stylist Nico communicated this message to our editorial team loud and clear.

It was the eleventh hour. We were less than 12 hours away from publishing. Everything has been planned.

The contents were organised and the stories were set! How could she just decide to pull out the images at the last minute and everything is in chaos!


It has been on celebratory mode all along. We reached a milestone achievement of our first year anniversary with digital publication. It was not easy. In fact, far from it. The journey was liken to be a turbulent ride but a very rewarding one. It was our first publication since 5 months ago when we managed to publish the Summer edition in the midst a worldwide Covid lockdown!


We certainly did not expect such a decision. The team shot this series during one of the hottest day during the British summer. Everybody was tired but in high spirit. We were cheering everybody on.


"We should be glad they are submitting for Vogue! It is gonna be worth it!" It's alright we published something less. It does make a difference but we will be fine." said Erin, our assistant editor-in-chief.



Nico, the stylist was also the designer for all the statement headpiece for the images. She has an exceptional talent in making the model looks fabulous and glamourous in her accessories which has some x-factor oozing in every shot. The photographer Tim Copsey is a veteran photographer with tons of experience in editorial shoot. He knows the story he wants to portray, he knows the angles, he knows the vibes. Everything on set was led by his equally experienced partner-in-style Nico.


We couldn't be happier when we received the images. They were not the usual kind of bridal shoot we see on social media. These were truly something different.


Featuring Kayla wearing Yolanda from Elysian Collection.

Giorgia Couture created only one new design for 2020. The off-the-shoulder ballgown was it!

The entire collection was supposed to be called Dream of Love, an named inspired from the term "Liebestraum" a romantic and virtuosic piano composition by Franz Liszt.

You can book an appointment with us to try this dress from "Dream of Love" today.

P.S: Were these images published eventually? You bet! The road to Vogue isn't a walk in the park. There is no resistance, it just isn't going to happen for this one, yet!

Thank You for this very special recognition. It was absolutely unexpected. Entitled "Singapore Prestige Award" I went to their official website to find out more. This award is all about giving recognition to small and medium-sized businesses that have proven to be the best in their market over the past 12 months!


I mean for at least half the time we have been on partial lockdown in Singapore and our international retailers too!

All shortlisted companies are asked to support their nomination with evidence of their work, positive feedback from their clients, information on previous accreditation’s and recognition as well as highlighting the most outstanding parts of their businesses.

We have done alot of work but I not too sure if those could be under innovative practises.

And the criteria read:

The judging panel base their decisions upon areas such as service excellence, quality of the product/ service provided, innovative practices, value, ethical or sustainable methods of working, as well as consistency in performance. The winners selected are those who can best demonstrate their strengths in these areas.


Okay. I was thrilled to be nominated for sure.

As a designer who has no formal education on fashion design, this is definitely one of the best thing that happened to me since my journey with weddings and bridal design.

While I have spent my ten thousand hours in front of the piano since I was a child, I was nowhere close to winning an award for piano.


We got on a call with the award team. This guy named Andre has emailed me 4 times through the month between 23 June and 17 July. I owe it to him for being relentless at contacting us.

So I was told that customer reviews and feedback on our services will play an important role in the judging process. Of course! I was secretly delighted that we have been conscientious in asking for reviews from our clients. You know, clients don't reply immediately for such requests because they are busy with their life. Some do revert immediately upon receiving the link but not everyone does. And we have accumulated quite numerous reviews over the years!


We have also accumulated quite many media features from our past endeavours, pre-covid.

We just need to submit these links in the questionaire and that's about all.

For the haters out there (just kidding), one interesting thing is that in Andre's email, (and maybe due to our no reply since they landed in our spam inbox,) he highlighted specifically that there is no cost involved. (Aka the award team do not allow bribery! lol. Yeah, great we don't have budget for that too!)


And approximately one month after we confirmed our participation, I received an email from Chris, the other guy who processed our questionaire, that they wish to speak to me. He has some news for me.


Oh exciting!


Yes, indeed. We have been successful in winning the award.

Thank you!


One of the best news so far since Post-Covid lockdown!

The other best news is we are gonna continue UK trunkshow this year because it has been requested by our stockists partners!


Thank you for the love!

I know... How often do we get to say we are back to the 20's, like literally!

The age of influence in the arts including music, paintings, architecture and fashion! The 1920's was a Golden Era for exuberance, flamboyance and artistic. Welcome back!


In Giorgia Couture, we love the vintage. Especially Baroque and Roccoco style from the vintage vibes.

But we want to stay true to catering for the modern, chic and fashion forward brides. So we have compiled a set of themes that are trendy and inspirational (I hope) for all brides-to-be for 2020. Right from our designer's sketchpad to your screen!

We give you a glimpes of Baroque and Rococo Styling.
