Trunk Shows & Events

Trunk shows are a great time to find your gown. A Trunk Show is a special showing and sale of an entire collection of gowns from a particular designer. Often, there is a discount during a trunk show. We would love to have you attend a trunk show with us this season! Below are links to websites, and descriptions of what each designer or event has to offer.

Appointments for these events are limited and book quickly.
Please call 919.783.8652 to schedule.

December 2 - 10:  Rosa Clará
Rosa Clará entered the bridal sector almost 20 years ago, opening the firm's first wedding gown shop in Barcelona. It offered innovative designs created from the highest quality fabrics to a growing market niche that didn't identify with the products on sale at the time. The company reinforced its position and influence on the sector when, among other initiatives, it partnered with haut couture designers of the stature of Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld and Zuhair Murad, signing exclusive contracts to make and sell their bridalwear collections worldwide. This decision, along with Rosa Clará's powerful brand image — reinforced by its role in opening Barcelona Bridal Week, one of the world's most prestigious bridalwear shows — and growing celebrity demand for its wedding gowns, boosted the group's brands and market position worldwide and paved the way for sales on all five continents through our own shops, franchises and multi-brand outlets. Prices range from $3,000-$6,000.

December 16 - 22:  Lea-Ann Belter
Forever painting and drawing, Lea-Ann knew from a young age her future lay in her creativity. Upon graduating from an art-focused high school, Lea-Ann continued her formal education at the Sheridan College of Crafts and Design, where she specialized in glass and textiles. She went on to earn her diploma from the International Academy of Design and Merchandising, after which Lea-Ann trained with a couturier where she refined the characteristics that define her work – flawless execution and impeccable quality.

Lea-Ann ultimately found her calling when she designed a wedding dress for her brother’s fiancée. She found bridal was the perfect expression of her love of fashion, amazing fabrics, timeless aesthetics, and meticulous execution. Before long, Lea-Ann opened her first wedding gown boutique in the exclusive Yorkville area of Toronto. Five years later, she launched the Lea-Ann Belter Bridal Collection through a network of retailers.

In 2005, Lea–Ann opened the Lea–Ann Belter Bridal flagship store on Toronto’s Queen Street East, and in 2007 she was named Wedding Gown Designer of the Year at the Canadian Wedding Industry Awards. Lea-Ann moved both her shop and production studio in 2012 to their permanent home in Toronto on the corner of Dundas Street and Broadview Avenue. Her designs are available in a curated selection of bridal boutiques across North America and Europe. Gowns range in price from $3,200-6,000.
