Welcoming Dawn in Cherry Velvet fashion

We recently made an addition to the Cherry Velvet Tree and we wanted her to get pumped about our dresses. What better way to do that, than to try them on! We spent the day giving her a little makeover and we think she looks STUNNING! Don’t you think so?

Thank you so much to Katie of Pout Beauty for doing such an amazing job on Hair & Make-Up.

While we were shooting, we tossed a few questions her way and she handled them like a pro. Without further ado, let’s get to know Dawn!

Tell us a little about yourself. Outside of the office, what definitively makes you Dawn?

Up until fairly recently, I’ve been a student for most of my life, while juggling a full time position as an aspiring author. I like words! I like books! I also spend a lot of time on the computer, gaming and learning stuff off the internet.

What are you looking for in a dress? What’s your favourite dress so far?

I don’t wear dresses very often, but when I do, I’m always looking for something that will make a statement and keep me comfortable at the same time. My favourite dresses so far are Brigitte & Brooke. At 5’1, I love that the hemline on the Brigitte is just a touch shorter, so it hits me perfectly at the knee. As for the Brooke, I absolutely love the full skirt. Nothing makes you feel more pretty than twirling around in such a lovely dress.

What’s your favourite part of working for Cherry Velvet? If you weren’t working here, what would you be doing?

Having worked in the Automotive Industry for 6.5 years, it is SO refreshing to work in a creative environment in the women’s fashion industry. The best days at work are when I get to be a fly on the wall during photoshoots in our studio. It was neat to show off my Cherry Velvet in front of the camera for once! If I wasn’t loving it here, I think would be writing fiction or learning how to draw! Something creative, for sure.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I’m a gamer geek! I love spending time gaming online. I could easily spend my vacation days exploring the World of Warcraft, casting healing spells and vanquishing ogres with my guild.

We had so much dressing Dawn up. Thanks to Logan, our Media director, for taking such amazing shots!

Here Comes…Jennifer!

Last year we introduced New Girl, Jennifer in a 3 gorgeous prints.

For those who aren’t acquainted with her, Jennifer is one of our favourite “Professional by Day, Vixen by Night” styles. Reminiscent of Retro 1960’s Nehru jackets, Jennifer’s saucy V-Neck is complimented by a Mandarin Collar & adorable button details. The A-Line skirt is perfect for those looking for that classic silhouette without a full skirt. It’s a delightfully unique choice for the workplace while still retaining that sense of sass that we all know Cherry Velvet girls have outside of work.

Check them out in 4 brand new prints:

We love the stunning Cerulean hues for Spring and whether you choose a striking geometric pattern like our Navy Deco or Jade Houndstooth, or a delicate print like Bird Song or Blue Damask, we’re certain you’ll turn heads.

Look forward to many new prints/styles to come for Spring!

Kim Paints Her Kitchen in Cherry Velvet!

Here at Cherry Velvet, it’s our mission to design showstopping dresses. What better way for our dresses to be seen than on the host of a national talk show! Starting Monday, February 15, 2016, Cherry Velvet is pleased to announce that we will be providing the Season 3 wardrobe for the host of Kim’s Kitchen, Kim Hayden. “Kim’s Kitchen” is a Calgary-based half hour television show focused on real women talking about current events, food and much more.

As a TV personality and a community spirit, as well as a successful Real Estate Professional (and accredited home stager!), Kim exemplifies the ambition and moxie of a Cherry Velvet Girl. With a flair for retro-inspired fashion and already very familiar with our dresses, it was such a pleasure to be approached by her about collaborating on her show’s wardrobe.

We are absolutely delighted with how our dresses look on her in this recent photoshoot, a promotion for her upcoming season:
