Divine Decadence a decade later

Sarina was a nineteen year old student in Toronto the first time she visited Divine Decadence Originals.  She met Carmelita Blondet for the first time and was treated to a tour of the store.  After the tour, Carmelita handed Sarina her business card and said “Come back to the store to buy your wedding dress one day”.  Ten years later, Sarina returned to Divine Decadence and bought the wedding dress of her dreams!  We love this story so much that we have to blog about it.  We will reveal pictures of Sarina in her wedding dress after the wedding.  So stay tuned!

This dress.. this dress!!

This dress…  This dress!  It’s rare a dress comes in the store that gets me so super excited, that it makes my jaw drop down to the ground.  I realize that this might be one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen.  The sequins are so beautiful that it brings this dress to life!

I knew that I needed to  photograph this dress and create this blog so I could share it’s beauty, even long after it is sold.  Click this link to see if it is still available in our online store!  See In Store

We loved working with you Meredith! Reign is a masterpiece!! XOXO

 

Meredith Markworth-Pollack was the costume designer for the glorious television series Reign.  At Divine Decadence Originals we loved having her come shop for the television show.  Meredith would come to shop at our store as often as monthly!  We were always so excited to see what she would pick for the show and to spot her purchases when watching the show on television.  The show is a visual masterpiece and is a display of Meredith’s amazing style, design and creativity.  We are so proud of Meredith Markworth-Pollack for winning the 2017 Canadian Screen Award for Best Costume Design.  Way to go Meredith!  Check out Meredith’s Instagram profile for some incredible insider pics and a lot of inspiration (@meredith_costumes).

Kate Moss Back Again!!

Kate Moss 2016Kate Moss graced Divine Decadence Originals with her second visit on May 10th, 2016!  The Supermodel was in town for only one day on business.  She made an appointment to see us one day before she arrived in Toronto.  The next day she came in for two hours shopping for day and evening summer dresses.

When Kate arrived out front, in her limo, we were so excited to see her!  As she made her way up the stairs she cheered ‘hola!’ announcing her arrival to Carmelita.  With the help of her personal assistant she was able to find several dresses that looked incredible on her, obviously..

This was Kate Moss’ second visit to the store but the first time Jens Krum, the manager of Divine Decadence Originals got a chance to meet her.  He stands firm on his claim that Kate is beautiful, down to earth, and “the coolest chick I’ve ever met”.
