  • Blast from the Past: Danielle is back!

    Published Jul 20 2022 in #canadianfashion, #cherryvelvet, #newarrivals, #pinupperfectionphotography

    Flash back in time to the year 2012 when our lovely assistant and model muse Danielle worked with us at Cherry Velvet HQ. We named a dress after her that was as cheeky as she is! It had style, it had class and a wee bit of sass! This photo was from the very first time she ever modeled for us (wearing the Ava dress.) Photo credit: Pin-up Perfection PhotographyModel Danielle wearing a black and white polka dot dress from 2012Fast forward ten years and we’ve re-launched the adorable Danielle dress and tweaked her up to a 2.0 version with deeper pockets and a sharper collar. You'll find the same row of buttons, the cute wrap around collar that frames a v-neckline and the best view of all, a bra friendly V shaped cut out back! The best part is that this time Danielle is modelling her namesake dress!

    It was wonderful to see Danielle again after so many years and to catch up with her. She been busy! Married with a handsome hubby and three adorable girls!

    Plus they’ve started their own business too! If you’re in Hope check out Mountainview Brewing Co! Already a popular place to hang out! Taco Tuesdays and Beergarita anyone!?

  • Missing You & What's New!

    Published Jan 12 2021 in #cherryvelvet, #madeincanada, #newarrivals, #pinupdress, #plussize, #shoplocal

    Hey guys this is Diane, I sure miss seeing all of you and being able to chat with you in person. So for just a minute try to imagine you've arrived at our studio and we are hanging out, having a visit! Maybe you'd like to know what’s happening here at Cherry Velvet?

    The next dress that's coming is a brand new style called Jacqueline named after a very lovely customer. There were two long delays and the fabric finally arrived, 3 months late! Then, we had some computer issues which delayed production another few weeks. (yep that's 2020 for you!) So if you’re wondering why you haven’t seen very many styles lately, that is why.

    Remember when you lovelies joined in to name the new prints? Well, you will be seeing them soon. The good news is that the new Jacqueline dress is in production now!

    All year I search for unique fabrics and this year is no different. I have a lot of beautiful new prints on order. I'm also considering bringing back a few 'past prints' back. What do you think?  Would you like to see one or more of these prints again? If so please weigh in on our Facebook or Instagram post of January 12, we'd love to hear your feedback on these prints.

    Right now, I’m designing a brand new style that I think you will love. I’m calling it Isobel named after the littlest Cherry Velvet girl. Isobel is the daughter of two very good customers and she has been coming to visit us for many years. She told me she liked coming to Cherry Velvet better than going to Disneyland! True Story! The Isobel dress will be a sundress style with a front zipper, because of all the great feedback we've gotten about our other super popular front zip style, the Marie.

    I'm dying to show you this vintage travel poster print I've been saving for a dress coming this Spring. While we're not able to travel right now, we can dream about it, right?

    You may notice that we have been putting new zippers in our dresses starting with the Olivia dress. We heard feedback from some of you it was difficult to get zippers done up by yourself. The only way to solve this issue was to change to a new zipper that allowed the attachment of a zipper helper. I'm interested to hear your feedback about this new zipper. It definitely has a different look, it’s more exposed and visible than the invisible zipper that we’ve been using for many years.

    Thank you again to everybody who sent in those wonderful entries for Cherry Cheer. We hope you’ll continue to send us photos of yourself and tag us with #cherryvelvet. We love to see you in your dresses!

    So, please keep in touch and stay strong guys! I miss you!

    Put on something pretty everyday to boost your mood!
