Sneak-A-Boo For The Fall!

Vanessa is wearing The Kate in Ticker Tape. Coming soon!

It’s common knowledge that the fashion industry is always ahead of the seasons and Cherry Velvet is no exception! Even though summer feels like it just started, we’ve hit the ground running on next season’s collection. No easy feat in heels & a crinoline ūüėČ #likeaboss

Fall is but a few short months away, so we took the time to sneak in a visit to our favourite (not-so) secret spot in the city, Momiji Garden, to shoot a few¬†new dresses that we will be releasing when the¬†seasons change…

During the design conception phase, we reached into the Velvet Vault and remixed a style we’ve carried in the past; our lovely Shimona (named after our favourite Pin-Up photographer & friend, Shimona Henry). While the original Shimona had full length sleeves, this year’s Shimona features its signature Peekaboo collar neckline and opts for sweeter, shorter cap sleeves.

We’re looking forward to offering The Shimona in four gorgeous prints for the Fall, but we love how the hint of chartreuse adds pizazz to the classic plaid print. Don’t you agree?

The Shimona will be available in Mod Plaid (pictured) + 3 new prints, available soon!

With its adorable neckline detail and front box pleat,  our Kate Dress has been one of our favourites for a few seasons now.

This coming season, we are offering The Kate in FIVE stunning prints! We’re so excited about designs like the Floral Noire & Ticker Tape (picture above), they have so much nostalgic flair!

A petti-peek of our new Floral Noir print. Coming soon!

We’ve talked about them before, but have you seen our brand new necklaces? Our signature Cherry necklaces are now available for purchase! We thought we’d tease you with how they look with a couple new prints, Chocolate Galaxy and Paintball.¬†Keep an eye out for them this Fall!

We’re shakin’ like Autumn leaves with excitement!

New Arrival…With A Cherry On Top!

CherryVelvet_LifeIsSweeter_Vanessa_Blog A few months ago, we reached out to our favourite jewelry designer, Mirror Mirror Bijoux and held a few creative meetings to conceptualize some new pieces.

A little back story! Mirror Mirror Bijoux and Cherry Velvet have been working together since 2014. At the beginning of that year, our designer, Diane, took her friend, Shelly, to a charity event that was featuring our dresses. We had also donated items for the event’s silent auction. As it so happens, Shelly ended up bidding on and winning a piece that Mirror Mirror Bijoux had donated; A gorgeous cherry necklace! Diane loved it so much, she ended up buying her own. Perhaps you’ve seen it before…

Mirror Mirror Bijoux is a jewelry company located in Coquitlam, BC, ¬†specializing in creating original, timeless pieces inspired by the classic elegance of decades past. With a mission statement like that, it’s no wonder why MMB’s high-end jewelry go together with Cherry Velvet Dresses like icing on a cake.

With that in mind, we are very excited and proud to present our exclusive necklace collection, Cherry On Top by Mirror Mirror Bijoux!

As Mirror Mirror Bijoux collaborated with Diane, they settled on a sweet CherryVelvet_Necklace_CherryCola_Detail¬†statement piece that perfectly encompasses the timeless elegance of pearls with a bit of added Cherry Velvet “sweetness”! ¬†During the design process a larger scale necklace was decided, as it was agreed that, aesthetically, a bolder piece would compliment a curvier figure best.

Our Cherry Icing necklace features delicate 12 mm (1/2 inch) white or black glass pearls and a gorgeous cherry pendant made with 20 mm (3/4 inch) round multifaceted red resin beads, silver crystals and glass leaves on a rhodium plated chain (extendable to 21 inches).

Canada Post Service Disruption Update!

Canada_Post_Update

Canada Post continues to draw out this dispute, we will continue to use Canada Post cautiously. Until an official 72 hour lockout notice is issued, we will be sending all local and one day shipments via Canada Post. Anything requiring 2 days of travel or more will continue to go through Purolator in the event that a 72hr notice is given so that nothing gets trapped in the system.
