In 2010 Ruby Hammer, British internationally acclaimed fashion and beauty makeup artist, columnist, co-founder of Ruby & Millie, and co-founder and Director of Scarlett & Crimson cosmetics brand, invited Alterations Boutique to make her a wedding dress and a dress for her daughter Reena Hammer.
‘"The weather was bright but cool, not the Indian summer I was hoping for, but at least it wasn’t raining," said Ruby, as she arrived in Whitehall for the 4pm service. Her champagne-and-pewter hued vintage dress was a unique creation. "It was discovered by my friend Charlie Brear of the Vintage Wedding Dress Company. Everybody but everybody commented on it,” she told us. “It was originally a flapper dress with an amazing kind of cape or train, and that part was made into my wedding dress by the lovely Maria Blazquez with lots of input from my friends, Reena and myself. Then I wore the flapper dress for the evening party."
Alterartions Boutique are very proud of the fact that the dresses were featured in the November 2010 edition of Hello! Magazine where Alterations Boutique and its founder Maria Blazquez's contribution are mentioned.
