BrierAnim was formed in late 2007 after its founders, Anne Brierley and Mercy Anim, discovered that their talent for Fashion, Design and Dress Making was becoming ever increasingly popular. Starting from their home office near Leighton Buzzard, they first provided a service to friends and family. Now, BrierAnim provide a service all over the UK.
This partnership looks to have been formed at De Montfort. The ladies behind the label have focused on everything bridal including gowns, bridesmaid gowns, corsetry, lingerie, and special occasion wear (aka Honeymoon).
BrierAnim strives to deliver the best in high-quality, reasonably-priced Wedding Fashion, using the very best skills and materials, we’ll provide you with a finished product that will ensure a truly magical day.
Although they mostly specialize in bespoke services, BrierAnim provides some photographs of their work. It is unlikely you will find a plain, white dress as they have recently focused on “East meets West and North meets South. Wedding Dress Design for a Multi-Cultural World”.
BrierAnim provides these guidelines for pricing.
- The average cost of a Bridal gown including fitting, pattern cutting production and basic design sketch is around £1500.
- The price can rise above this depending on the complexity of the dress, the fabric used, the amount of beading and embroidery detail and if the client desires a full design service which would include more detailed design illustrations with fabric swatches.
- Adult Bridesmaid Outfits start at around £250 and children from around £150, again depending on fabric choice and design complexity.
- Special occasion wear, prom dresses and made to measure outfits start at around £250.
