Anne Barge and "Boot Camp" graduate Marah Melillo backstage at the Spring 2010 Anne Barge Fashion Show at the New York Bridal Market
Recently, Anne Barge hosted a "Boot Camp" at her headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. I was lucky enough to be chosen to attend and I'm so glad I was able to go! Anne and her staff went above and beyond to make me and about 20 other bridal consultants from across the country feel welcome.
Anne's objective was to have each salon send a representative to become an Anne Barge specialist. I've always loved her gowns and I've always connected to the traditional core of them, so being able to work with her personally and having her share her first hand knowledge was priceless.
For two days, we learned everything there is to know about Anne Barge gowns. Whether it's her use of Italian silks, French laces or intricate embroideries, Anne's gowns always have a timeless bridal feeling about them. Each one is special in its own way and each one is designed with a bride's happiness in mind.
Now that I'm back in New York, I feel like a true expert on our Anne Barge designs and I have a new found excitement to show them and match each one to the right bride!
