  • Title: Ann Flavin - Dress Designer, Roisin Cross Silks
    Descriptive info: Dress designer.. Roisin Cross Silks.. Ann Flavin, a dress designer of immense flair and creativity joined the team at Roisin Cross Silks (RCS) in September 2009 but has been taking commissions from RCS clients since May 2009.. Ann trained as a dress designer at Grafton Academy and under the guidance of her mother who was also a designer with an excellent reputation.. Following her graduation from Grafton Academy, Anne and her mother opened a dress designing enterprise in Dun Laoghaire called Lorann in 1987, which they ran successfully together for 13 years.. Following the closure of Lorann, Ann took some time off to look after her two children and then eagerly returned to the dress designing business.. Ann quickly established a significant following largely generated through word of mouth in South Dublin and previous clients of Lorann, which was a testament to her unique skill and capability.. Her specialist expertise now lies in the design of wedding dresses and evening and party wear for special occasions.. She greatly enjoys researching trends and styles, working with clients from concept development, inspiring confidence in clients who may feel a little intimidated by the dress designing business and delivering on a dress that will truly inspire confidence and happiness.. Ann looks forward to many years of looking after clients in association with RCS and to producing truly magnificent creations in rich silks, across opulent colours.. Click below to view galleries:.. Bridal.. Coats.. Debs/ Evening Wear.. Dresses.. Co-ordinates.. Dress Design / Make Up Price List.. Dress.. 390.. 00 570.. 00..  ...   a size six model and, moreover, that it came with a £7,000 price tag.. Hence, I gathered as many images of my fantasy gown as possible and called into our neighbours at IMAGE Towers, Roisin Cross Silks, and beseeched them to make me something like.. this.. Fortunately, couturier Ann Flavin, right, had recently joined the team and, despite the complicated design and the nightmare client in question, she stepped up to the plate.. Once we sourced the perfect silk from Japan, Ann set to work on creating a pattern inspired by the original concept but tailored to better flatter my figure.. With just eight weeks to D day, it was a huge leap of faith, but three fittings later, and having put her own stamp on the design, Ann had pulled off a miracle.. The finished creation surpassed all my expectations and was a lot more graceful on me than the original, not to mention about 80 per cent cheaper.. Moral of the story? Try to think outside the box.. If you re getting nowhere with traditional bridal stores, look to the catwalks and eveningwear collections for inspiration and don t let budgetary restraints hold you back there s a plethora of skilled local couturiers out there only dying for exciting commissions.. Just be explicit about your wishes and the dress of your dreams is yours for the taking.. Ann Flavin can be contacted at Roisin Cross Silks, 22 Crofton Road, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin, 01 284 6282..

  • Title: Care of Wedding Gown Tips
    Descriptive info: For the Bride on her Wedding Day.. Avoid eating, drinking or smoking near your gown before your wedding reception.. Keep the cover on your dress until you are ready to put it on.. If accidents do occur, it will be protected.. Do not use pens or felt-tip markers near your gown.. Use pencils instead.. Ask those helping you with your gown to make sure they wash their hands free of hand cream and that they are not wearing any rings, bracelets or necklaces.. Hand cream could stain your gown and jewellery will snag on fibres.. High heels should also be banished until the very last minute.. We see numerous rips on gowns caused by sharp heels.. Avoid spraying on perfume and hairspray while in your gown - silk is very prone to staining by these two products.. If you must, drape a cotton sheet (not towel if you have beading - this may cause snagging) over the gown while you are spraying.. Specify to the driver of your Wedding Car that any leather seats are cleaned with clear polish only.. I have seen these seats cleaned with a coloured wax that subsequently rubs off onto the Wedding Gown.. If you are wearing diamante shoes, place a discreet strip of clear sellotape over the diamantes if possible as they often snag on dress hems.. Beware that bouquets may also snag on light chiffons, especially if they include sharp netting.. Avoid spilling any alcohol or water on your dress, especially any cream-based liquer as this encourages mould growth and can cause permanent staining.. Do not use salt on red wine stains as this fixes the stain.. Dab with a clean white cotton towel dampened with water and leave to dry naturally.. While a baby wipe will work on the day, it is very difficult to get a stain out properly after using wipes on it.. Fake tan perspiration stain dresses especially natural fibres such as silk and cotton.. Some synthetic fibre dresses will not be stained.. Beware of this if you wish to sell your dress.. If your dress is very creased hang it in a steamy bathroom for a few minutes.. Do not hang from a metal hook or bar as water may condense on cold metal and drip onto your dress.. Better again, ask your hotel to have a steam press available.. If you stain your gown with blood, lightly dab your saliva on it - the enzyme amylase in your saliva will break down the blood - do not rub.. Ask your dress maker to add a wrist-loop to the bottom of your gown so that you can hold it up easily when dancing.. After the celebrations, the gown often falls into a "black hole" - the newlyweds have left on their honeymoon and no-one may wish  ...   in order to reduce the risk of damp.. Wedding gowns should always be clean before being put into storage.. A soiled textile attracts pests such as clothes moths and carpet beetles.. If a gown has been worn, even though it may look spotless, it will need to be cleaned.. We do not recommend the use of pesticides to kill clothes moths or other insect pests as these can damage textiles.. Good housekeeping will reduce the likelihood of pest attack.. How to Choose a Dry Cleaner.. The best way to find a good Dry Cleaner is to ask friends for a recommendation.. If you see many wedding gowns hanging in their shop window then they may have a good reputation for cleaning wedding gowns.. Look at the workspace behind the counter - if its overcrowded and cluttered then it is unsafe.. Look at how the cleaners handle the gown - the mark of a good dry cleaner is good handling practises.. Are they wearing high heels? This is not acceptable as any person working with long gowns in delicate fabrics should be wearing flat shoes.. High heels will catch and rip garments.. Are they charging very low prices? This means they may be getting customers on price alone and not reputation.. High value garments such as Wedding Gowns warrant investing in a professional dry cleaner.. You may get lucky at a low price but you may not.. Above all, trust your instinct, don't be afraid to walk away.. Examine the care label on the garment the letter P in a circle means the dress can be dry cleaned with Perchloroethylene, which is commonly used in Ireland.. An F in a circle means the dress can only be cleaned with Fluorocarbon, a chemical that is not used in Ireland.. Your dress may have to be sent to the U.. K.. to be cleaned.. Many American dresses will say Do Not Dry Clean, Do Not Wash , a legal disclaimer denying any responsibility for cleaning advice.. It is best to avoid buying these dresses.. Ask the dry cleaner to test all the fabrics, dyes and attached embellishments for solubility in the dry cleaning fluid.. Beads can be especially sensitive to dry cleaning solvents and can melt in the wrong solvent.. A good dry cleaner should be able to wet-clean your gown if necessary - ask if they offer this service.. If you are not happy with the result, ask the dry cleaner to keep on trying to get the last few stains out but always err on the side of caution a clean though stained dress is better than a damaged dress.. Most of all, you must enjoy your day to the full and remember that very few dresses come through the day untouched afterall, it is the memories that count..
