By Ann Balon
With over 30 years as one of the leading UK occasion wear designers, allow us to introduce you to the Ann Bolon collection.
Making women feel elegant, confident and glamorous.
Ann Balon started her extensive and successful career as a jewellery designer however when she was on a trip to the picturesque Amalfi Coast, in Italy, she couldn’t help herself from falling in love with all it had to offer.
The finest Italian lace, the local cultures, the fresh Mediterranean food but most of all, the stunning appliqué work of the local garments with the intricate detailing and the vivacious and hypnotising colours of the region. This is where she had a vision! A vision of handcrafted appliqué work that would add a romantic air to an outfit. A vision of garments that enhance and compliment the figure of the woman she is dressing, and with that, Ann decided she was going to create her own fashion label and a set up a studio in the hills above Positano and from her Italian studio she calls her “labaratorio”, her creations are shipped to select boutiques around the world, including ourselves at Frox Of Falkirk
Ann and her team create designs again and again that has an ultimately timeless and classic look, each piece feels sensual, but never overpowering. An Ann Balon outfit isn’t dominated by the latest fashion and her main focus is on luxurious fabrics that are not only elegant but very flattering to the curve of the female body. Every outfit moves with such fluidity, it really does take your breath away and added to that, the subtly sparkling decorative appliqué details and the luxurious embroidery, not to mention the warm and inviting colours of the Mediterranean, can be seen and felt from the very first moment.
These absolutely beautiful, Italian inspired outfits, are for the Mother Of The Bride/Mother Of The Groom, or anyone looking to add a touch of sophisticated glamour to a special occasion. They are for the woman looking for eye-catching designs, for comfort to last all day, for the woman looking to enhance her figure. If all this is you then Ann Balon is the first step to finding the outfit of your dreams.
Enhancing the curvaceous confident fuller figure is something Ann is passionate about. You will find all skirts are fitted with discreet elasticated waistbands to allow comfort all day and night, the dresses are lined with lightweight underskirts and all of these stunning outfits come with jackets or full-length coats which not only adds to the elegant outfits, it gives us ladies a certain amount of coverage and confidence that we can dance the night away. This is a label that offers up so much versatility and is hugely successful from petite size to the beautifully curvaceous fuller figure.
Each and every piece made by the Ann Balon collection is cut by hand then assembled by expert seamstresses with the fine detailing work hand finished. The garments are then batch-dyed and stonewashed, which is where they use the traditional regional dyeing methods and pumice from Vesuvius. After the dyeing process is finished, each piece is quality controlled to perfection. From “Rosso”, a vibrant red to “Caraibi”, a sensual Caribbean blue, this collection has it all. As the sensual and delicate items are batch-dyed, there may be some colour variation between batches produced which makes the dress of your dreams a bit more unique. Just like you.
