Welcome to Mirror Mirror. I’m Maria Yiannikaris and together with my business partner Jane Nicolls we formed Mirror Mirror Couture in 1989.
My mother had a long successful career in Fashion and in the 50’s worked for a London couturier and made gowns for Ella Fitzgerald and Diana Doors. Jane’s godmother was a London couturier, so you could say it’s in the blood!
Jane and I both trained in design at The London College of Fashion and after careers in high fashion and luxe eveningwear our passion for design, proportion, attention to detail in both cut, fit and luxury fabrics led us into the world of bridal couture.
In our launch year we were delighted to be honoured with awards from the’ British Bridal Designer Awards’ (Organized by Brides magazine) in the ‘New designer’ category followed over the years by awards for Slim Silhouette, Innovation, Embroidery and Beadwork. We are also very proud to have been awarded Perfect Weddings Magazine’s ‘Best Bridal Boutique’ three years in a row, as voted by real brides.
For the first ten years, we concentrated exclusively on creating our own bespoke designs. Mirror Mirror has gained an enviable reputation in the bridal world and we are so privileged to have dressed many celebrity brides inc. Zoe Ball, Amanda Holden, Caroline Quentin,Tamsin Outhwaite,and the Publisher of Brides to name but a few.
Having just celebrated our 25th year we have taken the oppurtunity to expand and amalgamate our business to create one flagship boutique at our Angel Islington location. This brings together our design studio, altelier, consulting rooms, fitting studio and accessories boutique all in one easily accessible location. Alongside our Mirror Mirror Couture dresses [ which are designed cut and made in our London workrooms ] you will find our personal selection of the most gorgeous gowns from the best international bridal collections.
The Mirror Mirror team will aim to make you comfortable and help you find your dream dress with style and integrity.
To further enhance the experience of all brides so they can ‘complete their look’ our accessories boutique is open ( no appointment needed ) on Saturdays between 9.30am- 5.30pm with the most stunning and exclusively sourced range of bridal accessories.
