    As a proudly Canadian company, we love working with local brands and businesses that exemplify the level of care & quality that we maintain ourselves.

    ...So...that being said...

    ...have you met Pam? ♥️

    Pam of Mirror Mirror Bijoux

    She's the lovely face & talented hands of Mirror Mirror Bijoux, a well-known local jewellery designer here in Vancouver, BC and an overall entrepreneurial force.

    She also loves our dresses 😘 (She's Team Chrissy!)

    Under MMB, she designs and handmakes vintage-inspired jewellery that echoes old Hollywood glamour. Primarily working in crystal and glass, she adds elegant detail like ethereal finishes that sparkle like the night's sky. 

    She’ll often also incorporate real vintage beads or brooches into her pieces, giving that legit Vintage vibe.

    CV Aficionados will be quite familiar with her & MMB, we not only carry her jewellery, including exclusive pieces, but she sometimes drops by our events...



    ...and often pops in to collaborate with our designer, on the next beautiful baubles to go with our dresses. 



    Whenever they meet, they pour over a multitude of beads and pendants, to create complementary pieces that add versatility and flair to our clients' wardrobe.

    Recently, she's branched out to save us all from the worst thing imaginable...A bad hair day!
    Have you tried a Great Hair Day Turband? We have!

    They're easy-to-wear, insta-wow accessories for those days when a ponytail or plain ol' hat simply won't do.



    Want to try one? Pam will be on hand at our next studio shop weekend @ 1635 Powell Street with a variety to try!  

    Friday :: July 5th :: 2pm-7pm 
    Saturday :: July 6th :: 11am-5pm 


    We hope you enjoyed this little spotlight on one of our favourite local entrepreneurs.
    We think it's so important to support our fellow #womeninbusiness ♥️

    BLOGGIN' NEXT WEEK :: PART 2 of our customer spotlight on The Snow Family. 

     

     

  • The Snow Family: A "Cherry" Tale (Part 1)

    Published May 31 2019 in Cherry Velvet, Customer Appreciation, Made In Canada

    In the many years that we have been in operations here in beautiful Vancouver, BC, we've watched our customers come and grow into an enthusiastic, body positive community. 

    Feeling so blessed to have such wonderful people supporting us, we wanted to take a moment or two to recognize one such family, who have been delighting us at our studio with their excitement and charm since 2014.

    May we present to you, The Snow Family.

    Science Shirt and Retro Dress Family

    You might recognize Jon, the provocative patriarch, as our erstwhile model for our Men's line of shirts...

    But the real Belle of the Ball is the buxom and beautiful, Brandi Snow. 

    Tea Cup Print Retro Dress Plus Size

    ...And of course, we cannot forget our "Littlest Velvet", Miss Isobel!

    Adaline Cats Retro Dress

    Even though we don't offer Girls' sizes, we love that Isobel can't get enough of our styles.
    It warms our heart to see how much she loves to match with her mum & dad. 

    Dinosaur Dress Mens Shirt

    But it touches us even more than she's always the first to our door, so eager to help out the team. We love our little Hanger-wrangler! With fashion on her mind, we may have a young designer in our midst... 

    Cherry Velvet Dresses Patterns

    We love that each member actually has their own favourite look -

    Of course Jon loves all our Mens' shirts, but as a lover of all things V, the Chrissy & Marie are Jon's fave dresses (who doesn't love adjustable cleavage?) Both Isobel and Brandi are currently Team Brigitte, with our Pandamonium Print on point.

    Panda Print Retro Dress

    But Brandi admits that she will always have a fond place her in heart for one of her first styles (and one of our earlier designs), a little number named, "Melody". 

    Tea Cup Retro Dress Mad Hatter Tea Party

    We think it's so neat that Jon was able to send us this old snap from a past Studio Shop way back at our old Gastown location. 

    ...Could this have been the very moment she decided to say "Yes" to the Dress? ;)

    Stay tuned! In next week's blog, Brandi shares her thoughts on aging gracefully and why 95% of her wardrobe is Cherry Velvet dresses! <3
