Back And Better Than Ever!

We are back. As you can see we have a fabulous new website. I hope you take a gander around and see what you like. The store has been morphing and changing to reflect what you the client wants.  So we have more one of a kind, bridal, and our fabulous cocktail dresses. We've changed how and what we make so it reflects Octavio's personal desire to have beautiful dresses for the one of a kind woman.
We can not recommend more, Molly Madfis who designed our website. Her eye is impeccable. She is multi talented, check her out here That's all for now!
Have a great summer day everybody!

Becoming a bride

Octavio Carlin bridal began as question. A client came into the store and was admiring all of the gowns that were hanging on the racks and discussing her difficulty in finding a bridal gown that was as modern and chic as an Octavio Carlin gown. She then asked, can you make any of these in white? Why yes we told her and Octavio made her a custom bridal gown that wouldn't look out of place at the Oscars. And the Octavio Carlin Bridal line was born, so call or come by the store if you are ready to be a unique, glamorous bride.
Have a great week!

I'm No Angel

Mae West was a force of nature. On screen and off. She was funny, smart, glamorous and unapologetically man crazed. Which made her seem rebellious and before her time, but really she was just being herself. If you don't know anything about her definitely check out her most famous film, I'm No Angel, where you can see her at the top of her game. In thinking about Mae West, I wonder is there anyone who compares today? Let me know you think...

Spring is near

Even though you may be shivering in your boots and only dreaming of owning an octavio carlin original, know that change is upon us and spring is right around the corner, which means it's pretty dress time!
Now you may have noticed I sound nothing like Octavio and that's because I'm not. My name is Romey and I am the co-owner of this amazing label. I'm going to be the HBIC (Head Blogger In Charge) from here on out. Octavio quite simply is too busy. Doing what you ask? Well for one making beautiful wedding gowns like the one above and also designing the exclusive RTW that is in the store. So if you are in LA come by and if not stay tuned for all of our exciting changes to come.
Have a great week everybody!
