Embrace the curve balls but at the same time, ensure you stick to what you want, not your entourage. Our motto is ‘be a special version of your normal self’. CARO GOMEZ Caro Gomez | Where: I’m a slow fashion womenswear designer with an online shop and my focus is on ceremonial gowns with an eclectic twist. We create pieces that honour and celebrate your inner Goddess, inside and out. About the boutique: A Caro Gomez Goddess ceremonial gown is not like any other. We’re about the energetics of fashion. Colour, patterns, and a celebration of the power of the vulva. Our bespoke gowns are made in consultation and co-creation with you, with my background as a feminine embodiment coach we get to have deep and meaningful conversations to discover your soul style, your vibe, and your archetypal Spirit Animal. Why a Spirit Animal? These are energies that get to walk with you as you enter this new chapter and guide you along the way. Each gown is blessed with an indigenous ritual from my Mayan ancestry and a special ceremony for you and the giving of the gown can be created at your request. All pieces are designed and made in London by Latin hands. Prices: Bespoke gowns start from £5,500 and the ready to wear collection starts from £550. Sizes: Bespoke are made for you and ready to wear are from a size UK8 to UK22. Designers: Eponymous label. Top tip: Do what turns you on. My clients laugh when I tell them this, but it really is a sacral response that you want to tune into when you’re making decisions about your dress, venue, food and decor. Remember, you get to create magic, you get to be the creative director of this day and the ones to come, this is your masterpiece. Make it yours. 58
