A NEW luxury bridal boutique has opened in Wirksworth providing an exclusive bespoke made-to-measure service.

Timeless Couture has been launched by Astra Slater and Rachel Bull.

Based in West End, in the former studio of lingerie designer Janet Reger, the business specialises in bespoke wedding products from couture gowns to corsetry and jewellery.

After losing her job fashion designer Astra, 23, decided to follow her dream and launch her own shop.

She said: “This is always something I’ve wanted to do and I’m passionate about. We really want to bring back products that are ‘made in England’ and British couture.”

She added: “There is huge community spirit here in Wirksworth, and it is an up and coming market town which is a good example that small businesses can thrive even in hard times.”

The shop is set to host an open day in the new year.
