Her shoes are a true investment piece, bride-to-be.
#2 The last thing you want to be on your wedding day is uncomfortable. Diane Hassall has created style with comfort. Her beautifully made collection flaunt sumptuously soft leather linings that will leave your feet feeling happy all day too. Get ready to dance the night away under the stars in your favourite Diane Hassall shoes, bridal babe!
#3 If you’re looking to wear something unique to you on your big day, then the label’s Shoe Artistry service will be right up your street. This is the perfect way to bring your own touch of creativity to your bridal shoes. Choose between fabulous 50’s style bows, enchanting roses, embellished flowers and blousy blooms. Plus, as they’re removable you’ll be able to simplify your shoes after the big day too.
#4 The delicate nude and sumptuous blush colour palette of the designer’s first collection suits all skin tones beautifully, and works perfectly with an ivory or white bridal gown. These hues are soft enough to work with traditional ivory while not fighting it.
#5 You’ll love the fact that Diane Hassall’s delicate lace and suede accents are built to last. These specifically sourced fabrics will wear well while still creating a truly chic and unique look.
#6 If you’re looking for luxury, then prepare to be swept away with the designer’s use of dreamy French lace, gorgeous Italian satin and premium quality suede. All of Diane Hassall’s styles can be hand-beaded and the brand’s pure silk ribbons are hand-dyed to match.
#7 You’ll be delighted to know that each and every shoe is created with true, quality craftsmanship. Made by craftsmen with years of experience using traditional shoe-making techniques, you can rest happily in the knowledge that each shoe is beautifully stitched and created in the label’s small artisan factory in Europe.
#8 The last thing you want as you take to the aisle on the big day itself is a slip, fall, or uncomfortable, ill-fitting shoes. All of Diane Hassall’s chic styles are tested to ensure great fit. This is a label that wants you to feel every inch the princess on your wedding day.
#9 If you’re looking for originality, Diane Hassall is where to find it. You’ll instantly fall in love with the designer’s signature chic style. With every style designed by Di and all of the fabrics sourced by the label, you’ll love the uniqueness of the brand’s offerings.
#10 Finally, did you know there’s a style to suit every type of bride in the ‘Di’ Collection? Regardless of whether you’re a fashion-forward bride or someone who wants something a little more traditional, Diane Hassall has the style to suit you…
