Hi I'm Catherine, welcome to Akito Avalanche Wedding Hangers!
I was inspired to create Akito Avalanche have long loved the whole aesthetic of weddings. On my own wedding day I was struck by the irony that the most beautiful dress I would ever wear (Tabitha by Charlotte Balbier) was hung on a bulky plastic hanger. I wanted that iconic hanger shot showcasing the dress in all its glory in that serene moment before all the wonderful craziness of your wedding day begins.
I created a selection of beautiful wedding hangers, focusing on keeping the design simple and elegant so as not to detract from the main event [the dress].
I use high quality satin ribbons, tulle embroidered lace, sequins, mother of pearl buttons, embellishments and design and create my own bespoke labels and endeavour to source all my materials from local companies in Yorkshire and if not in Yorkshire then the UK.
I die cut all my own labels, hand stamp, hand sew and make my hangers to the highest standard.
The name of my little business is I like to think totally unique and a little bit unusual, it is named after two of the roses in my own wedding bouquet, Akito (pure white) and Sweet Avalance (pale pink).
