Who we are
Cerrura Fashions is a family run bridal and special occasion clothing retailer that was founded in November 2006 by the Dewu's. They started selling from one shop in FonthillRoad, Finsbury Park which has since grown into three outlets in the same location with the addition of a new outlet in Romford, Essex in November 2014. They have gained a reputation of being a retailer that offers outstanding occassionwear in unique designs from elegant fabrics that really create the wow factor.
How it Began
Whilst the founder of the Cerrura Fashions was doing her master degree in business adminstration, she went on a weekend away to Spain. Whilst sightseeing she stumbled upon a bridal village that sold everything from bridal dresses, menswear, childrenswear all the things associated with weddings. She was inspired by the idea of catering to all the people involved in the wedding, from the bride, groom, Mother of the Bride/groom, bridesmaids, flowergirls, pageboys and the guests. She envisioned having a wedding dress in the center of a shop highlighting Cerrura Fashions focus on all things wedding.
After sharing her vision with someone she knew, Cecilia was told by the lady of a wedding that she had that was African themed. Cecilia was ecstatic as at the time she had never heard of an African themed wedding before. This was the final piece to the puzzle and with that Cerrura Fashions was born. This lady Cecilia knew designed their first African wedding gown which was made shortly thereafter and as the saying goes 'and the rest is history'
How Customers are treated
From the onset, Cerrura Fashions has ensured that it treats its customers well, whether it be
- assisting them to find an outfit that will suit their occassion, complexion and/or body structure
- speaking to them in a kindly manner
- offering suggestions on how they can get the best fit
- giving honest feedback (telling them when something fits well or it doesn't)
Cerrura Fashions has been blessed to have had some influential people as their customers including members of parliament from Nigeria, Zambia, South Africa, Presidential first ladies as well as notable Pastors. Furthermore, one of Cerrura Fashions customers was the Miss African Spirit 2010 where she wore one of their african attires when she won the pageant. Cerrura Fashions does not forget their not so well recognized customers, as without their support, they will not be were they are today.
