Evolved was created to bring fashion-forward, modern and unique designs to North Devon.
There are plenty of bridal shops who offer the traditional and 'copied' styles - We aim to be the opposite!
We want our brides to feel truly special, wearing a dress that feels it was literally made for them. It has to capture their essence and represent their style, whether its a love for softness and romance or wild and alternative.
Our selection of Designers are the spirit of who we are. We want dresses created from a true vision and passion! When a dress is designed from love and creative, you can feel it in the dress; every detail is thought-out, every trim is unique, and the structure designed for wearability.
We choose Designers who who do it for the love!
You will find that our Designers offer many extra special details, from matching accessories and fabrics to custom changes to the dress. It adds that touch of special customised service for our brides - they are treated as an individual; not a number.
Our aim is to offer brides ways to incorporate sustainable options... we wanted to make a more conscious effort to lower our carbon footprint. We don't claim to be perfect, there are things we can always improve upon and we are learning as we go along but hopefully some of our options can assist.
We decided to take some steps that could help, including:
Trying our best to obtain pre-existing samples for our Made to Order dresses
Making use of as many trunk and loan dresses where possible to help minimise new productions on dresses
Try our best to source in-stock dresses wherever possible
On hand to give brides tips and advice if they wish to re-sell their dress - we will even pay for their listing fee on
Offering a re-sell consignment option on our Made To Order dresses & accessories to assist with 2nd hand usage (on selected Designers only)
Our in-house fashion designer can assist brides with re-design options on their dress after the wedding
Offer tips on donating their dress to charity
Making an effort to endorse sustainable local products to our brides
'I have been around bridal for nearly 10 years and I have had some of the most fabulous experiences. My main love is for Boho dresses - there is just something so magical and free-spirited about them!
I would say I am not what people expect. If I was to pick where to holiday, it would be the mountains; it helps me feel grounded and puts everything back into perspective for me.
I have a wonderful husband and son (not forgetting my amazing dog and cats - we are total animal people!) and I feel grateful for everything I have in life. Life is not about money or fancy cars - it is about love and experiences...And I intend to expand upon that as much as I possibly can x'
