Mel, what made you go into the Suit business?
The majority of the wedding industry is focused on the bride, We wanted to offer something mainly focused on the Guys and making them feel and look their best on their big day after all it’s his day too!
How long have you been in the fashion business?
I have been in the wedding industry almost 5 years however I have been in men’s & women’s fashion for 17 years.
What do you love most being in the wedding industry?
The people and in our own small way helping to create the most magical day of a couples life.
What's the biggest challenge you find?
Educating people on getting the right fit. A lot of people think you can just walk in pick a suit off the rack and walk out. By all means you could do this but you could also end up looking like your wearing “Lurch’s” suit. We alter each suit to fit each individual.
What does Suits Direct specialise in?
Everything a guy needs to look his best on his big day in one place. Weather they are hiring, buying or both we have them sorted from head to toe so there is no there is no need to “drag” him from shop to shop (we all know how much men love shopping! :) )
Mel, what’s your best wedding planning tip?
t’s your day do it you way! As much as you value your friends/families input remember its your day and to many outside opinions/ideas can add extra stress you don’t need.
Can you tell us, what trends do you see for 2018?
In regards to men’s styling the vast majority of wedding suits are still grey, black or navy however this year I think it’s going to be all about colour were seeing a lot of burgundy, forest green and blue coming through. Styled correctly these shades look fantastic and certainly boast that extra wow factor!
When is your favourite time of year for weddings?
I love a June/July wedding especially on the Coast the weather is not as humid and everyone can enjoy the day without sweltering in their suits & dresses and traditionally there is less rain.
Can you describe yourself in 3 words?
Honest, motivated & assertive.
Marry the one you love. Get hitched without a hitch. Together we’ll capture the heart and soul of your wedding day.
