Lorraine and Sandra
It all started with Lorraine, who has a long standing history in the Bridal industry as a whole. Having graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 1992 with a BA degree in fashion, she joined the Uk’s largest bridal wholesaler & retail company as a young designer. From there the love of the bridal industry grew, travelling all over the world as a young designer was both exciting & so rewarding. Winning several awards with the company over the years.
Lorraine has always been so passionate about fashion, fabrics, beadwork, design & quality. She started sewing at a very young age, following in her mothers’ love for dress making. As a teenager Lorraine completed many courses during her school holidays. The first being at Irelands Grafton Academy for Fashion, she then went on to complete others at NCAD, Irelands National College of Art & Design. It was evident from a young age she had a natural talent & passion in this area.
After some years Lorraine now married herself, living in Derby decided it was time to change her direction & the next step was to establish that all important connection with the bride & so opening a Wedding dress shop in Derby seemed the obvious thing to do. This is when Lori G Bridal Studio opened its door to Derby Brides to be. Located in Allestree, just outside Derbys City Centre with Free parking just outside the door.
After a short time it became apparent that Lorraine couldn’t manage it all & her “Silent” partner, her sister, Sandra came on board. Sandra has an extensive background in business & accounts having worked in both, her own & the family businesses. 13 Years later, this pair are still working together, loving everything they do, everything about bridal & offering their experience & expertise which is always valued by their brides
