Taking Centre Stage With…Tatyana


We have a ferocious new addition to the Cherry Velvet collection. Introducing Tatyana!


Named after our pattern maker, Tatyana, this dress is definitely an ambitious style; combining our signature retro-look with modern fashion trends.


While our signature full skirt and sweetheart neckline still evoke that nostalgic appeal, this is our least retro-inspired style yet! We also added a bit of length to the hem, making it an even more unique Cherry Velvet dress.

Lately, we’ve been loving the cut-out trends that we’ve seen on the runways and added our own cut-outs with daring straps above the already alluring sweetheart bust. We upped the fierce factor a bit more with the addition of a cold shoulder detail, as well.

Here at CV HQ, our dresses are as much about the prints as it is about our exceptional fit. We simply couldn’t have designed such an edgy dress without appropriately distinct prints. You can’t imagine how many different prints we pored over, before settling on these whimsical animal prints. We love them and we hope you do, too!


It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the dress…

Taking Centre Stage With…Angelina

In today’s blog, let’s take an Autumn stroll…


When you think of the name “Angelina”, we feel there’s only one famous image that comes to everyone’s minds. A sexy, confident woman with a signature pout and legs for days. When Cherry Velvet thinks of an Angelina, we pretty much think the exact same.


An updated version of one of our shorter length dresses, The Brigitte, we took its little details and made them statuesque!

Our Angelina has everything you’d expect a Cherry Velvet dress to have; our signature deep pockets, a sexy-sweet neckline (this time opting for a V-Neck over a Scoop) and, of course, a full skirt.


But what makes this dress stand head & shoulders among the rest is its more natural waist line and twisted racer back-like detail.


For ladies with a longer torso or just a bit taller, this dress is perfect for you. And with three luscious prints to choose from, it’s hard to walk away!


Whether you pair it with a crinoline or let your legs do all the talking… rest assured people will be talking about you!
