A steady loyal clientele grew with Clariscia from 1997 seeking outfits that would take them from; business wear, holiday resort wear, to their outfits for evening and special events. These clients began asking Clariscia to also design their wedding dresses as they found it impossible to find dresses that reflected them. Thus, a few years later, Clariscia Gill Bridal was born. Primarily, it’s concept was based around the bride who did not feel moved by a huge meringue type dress but who wanted something to compliment her personality.

 

A chance find in 2000 of a perfect location in central London meant a more accessible location for the continued growing client list with some clients now travelling from abroad to visit Clariscia.

 

Now, with increased requests from her clients, Clariscia will launch an online store stocking ready-to-wear clothing some of which will be limited edition, one off pieces these latter items designed as she feels spontaneously creatively inspired.
