 January is well known for kick starting the year with the UK Open dancing championships that takes place at the Bournemouth International Centre. Here we take a look back at some of our couture highlights  over the last 4 years with each dress beautifully embellished with Swarovski® Crystals ...

 

'For me, I feel like this is the time where people open up and experiment with their designs, having fun and exploring what works for them and how best to show their personality on the dance floor, testing the waters for Blackpool. Our dresses from the UK open embody this feeling, they are full of innovation, exciting silhouettes, stunning embellishments and new and beautiful fabrics.'

'One of my absolute favourites was 046PP, a dress Izabela wore for the UK Open in 2020. It was fun, exciting, new, soft and feminine all at once. She took a risk and the result was a showstopper.'
