Pina Fiorenza New Store in Cairns!

Cairns will reinforce its position as Australia’s bridal mecca next month when renowned bridal house Fiorenza opens the doors to its luxury bridal boutique at The Pier. Award-winning designer Pina Fiorenza said she has waited nearly two decades to open a store in Cairns after beginning her fashion career in North Queensland over 25 years ago.
“It’s the ultimate reward for me; I always dreamed of coming back and having a presence in Cairns, honoring the unique style and sophistication of brides up here,” she said. It was during a visit to Cairns earlier this year to showcase her 2012 collection for the Wedding and Formal Expo that Ms Fiorenza decided the time was right.
“Cairns has evolved into the supreme bridal destination; from its amazing locations through to the talented people who work in the industry,” Ms Fiorenza said. “The brides are also remarkable; there’s no indecisive ‘bridezilla factor’ up here – they know what they want, they value craftsmanship and they have the confidence make a statement. “They see a collection, pick out the most fashion-forward design, try in on once and say ‘yes this is the one’ – it is quite amazing.”
Managed by mother and son team Lesley and Joe Frisicia, the opulent boutique promises to bring ‘couture bridal at a prêt-a-porter pricetag’ to Cairns, with Ms Fiorenza’s signature embellishments and exquisite attention to detail imbued in every gown.
Mr Frisicia said the store’s opening celebrations next month will include a week of champagne designer sessions from the 28th of July with Ms Fiorenza on hand to personally style brides.
“Cairns brides are discerning, stylish and appreciate luxury so we’re very excited to be able to offer them the kind of truly unique experience usually found in fine fashion houses of Paris and Milan,” he said. It also means that brides who used to travel to Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne for Fiorenza fittings can now shop closer to home. Fiorenza at The Pier Shopping Centre will be open to the public from the 28th of July.
