Hot Couture weddings.

Here at Hot Couture we make a lot of wedding frocks, mostly for brides wanting something just that little bit unique and individual. We love it when the photo's of the special day come through and we see our frocks have been teamed with skull and crossbone tiara's, felt posies, red glitter slippers and charming settings.
We DON"T make traditional white wedding frocks as a rule but we would if it was something truly out of the ordinary. Most of our brides love colour and black. Here are a few photo's of our most recent weddings. If your in the market for a wedding or bridesmaid frock, have a look at our website and imagine any of our gorgeous frock's made up in the fabric of your choice. Love Joy XXX

Our girl's back

Our gorgeous girl Stavroula has been off travelling the world. London, Paris, New York you name it she's done it and now she is back home. Stav has had the most wonderful time, her boyfriend Aaron ( below ) her friends and family have missed her terribly. Life just isn't the same without a Stav in it and if you don't have one that's a shame, we don't want to share ours, sorry. We're so excited, she has great plans for Hot Couture as well as other plans I'm sure. I can hardly wait to catch up and hear all about her trip and all her fabulous idea's for the future. It's been quiet around here and I'm not talking sales. Welcome home gorgeous girl.

Our girl

Welcome back Stavroula!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Painting of Lena in Hot Couture

Ya! gotta love it when a customer has a painting done in one of your frocks. Lena Callaghan's mum has painted Lena in one of our fabulous polkadot number's. Lena is one of our fave customers from Hobart and she sent me this photo of the painting. I think her mum's pretty talented if you want to see more go to Lena I really appreciate you sending this on.

Our hot models

Just thought I'd share these great photo's of our stunning Hot Couture models Sarah Easter and Nikki Ward. We couldn't use these on our website but I'm sure you will agree the girls look smoking hot. Sarah is wearing the new Isle of capri pants and Jayne top. Nikki is in Sandra Dee with tight skirt. Thanks girls it was a tough shoot outside in the heat, it was a really long day. I love my girls they put in 100 percent and I appreciate them all. XXX Joy

Nikki Ward's 25th Costume party.

One of our lovely models here at H.C celebrated her 25th last weekend. Nikki had a Heroe's and Villian's party. Sadly we were in Melbourne and couldn't make it but we hear it was sensational. I was very proud to be asked to help out with Nikki's Queen costume. We followed Helena Bonham Carters Queen costume from Alice to a tee and with the help of Jen Rossiter doing hair and make up I think all up it turned out very special. So while we were at the Tim Burton launch Nikki was having her very own Tim Burton encounter. Happy Birthday Nikki from all of us here at Hot Couture. XXX Joy

Our beautiful new sarong frock.

Finally I have all my new frocks on the website. This beautiful sarong pattern comes from one of my very own original frocks I bought in my 20’s. I have been searching for the same Hawaiian floral fabric for years to reproduce and have finally decided that the Hawaiian fabric and bark cloth in Sarongs has pretty much been covered by other fab labels. To be completely different Hot Couture is offering this particular frock in plain cotton sateen. Our fave fabric cotton with a slight stretch. Loretta comes in a multitude of colours, yellow, green, chilli red, pale blue, hot pink, orange and of course black and white. You can add brooches, bamboo bangles & earrings. Don’t forget to put cascades of roses and hibiscus in your hair. Why not add your own floral. I’m starting to think this could be my favourite Hot Couture frock of all time. XXX Joy
