Fifth & Welshire — For Fashion-Forward Brides
The new Black-owned e-commerce brand, Fifth & Welshire launched back in October 2020 by designer Kai Petty. She launched a contemporary bridalwear collection that has a bit of a different approach to bridalwear compared to what you might see in standard boutiques. The wedding-day looks are designed with a fashion-forward mentality.
The e-commerce brand was born in the middle of the lockdown period. Petty started the Maryland-based brand and offers a wide range of alternative bridalwear for those brides that are looking to wear something other than the standard or traditional ball gown.
Finding a Dress That Can Be Worn Again
Most wedding-day wear is worn solely on the big day. Lots of money is spent by brides to get the perfect dress and accessories only to put them on for a few hours on their wedding day. However, Fifth & Welshire has bridalwear options that come with the idea that the dress or bridal piece can be worn more than just once.
Not only does the brand feature versatile pieces, but also bridalwear at accessible price points. The separates start at $210, and their dresses at $215, while the jumpsuits start at $275. All the garments are easily shippable too.
Kai Petty said that all the garments at Fifth & Welshire resemble that ideal bridal look, but they also feature versatile components for other special occasions that may follow. They’re not just perfect for the big day but also for rehearsal dinners, after-parties, and more.
All the designs come from a modern-day perspective, and they target brides that prefer to elope or have more intimate gatherings than go all out with a huge traditional wedding.
