Behind the Scenes
Gina Bacconi belongs to the leading fashion design group Shubette that was established in 1913. The family business is located in the fashion capital of London. In the early days the company concentrated on womenswear for special occasions, with the items primarily stocked in British department stores. However, it wasn’t long before the products became known worldwide. Following on from this, Shubette introduced a number of brand labels alongside Shubette, including ANT, Willow and Gina Bacconi. All the labels were well received internationally and Gina Bacconi gained quickly in popularity. A development that Shubette is still proud of to this day.
Moving with the times to reinvent itself and still keeping a certain level of tradition- this is what Shubette executed excellently. Nowadays, Shubette is managed by the third and fourth generations. The family members have a clear focus on ambition and on a diversity of ideas.
Glamorous and extravagant are the two words that often spring to mind when thinking of Gina Bacconi. Every season the label never fails to wow us with its breathtaking designs. But it’s not only the fact they’re visual pleasing that entices their customers, the beautiful craftsmanship and exceptional quality of every piece has awarded them a loyal following. Mother’s of the bride are often drawn to the 2-in-1 cocktail dresses, which are effortlessly elegant and boast a flawless fit. For black tie affairs the label’s floor length gowns are guaranteed to turn heads for all the right reasons, while the floral pencil frocks are both garden party and wedding guest perfect. So the next time you have a special date in your calendar you know who to call on.
