Abbelle - A Gown for Every Occasion

Abbelle - A Gown for Every Occasion

Abbelle is priming itself to be Hertfordshires most glamourous party, prom, pageant and evening gown retailer...

We did it!

On 18th Nov 2016 we successfully raised £1,340 with 11 supporters in 28 days

Abbelle - A Gown for Every Occasion is coming to Hemel Hempstead's historic old town this Autumn.  Abbelle is the brainchild of a local Boxmoor family. Mother and daughter trio, Karen, Ellen and Abbey love nothing more than the Glitz and Glam of red carpet events. Having just successfully secured start up funding we are now looking for crowdfund investors to help us achieve our dream.  Every penny of your pledge  will be put towards the renovations and fit out of  our 16th century shop. 


Have you ever experienced that 'Pretty Woman' feeling? You're out shopping, money in your purse, ready and excited to buy that unique gown for that special party, prom or glamourous event.  Then you get that deflated feeling when the customer service is appalling, and then the lack of colours, styles and sizes is equally disappointing.   Not forgetting the sore feet and fatigue from all the traipsing around every shop in town, out of town and across many towns.  What about the sleepness nights and those wasted hours daydreaming about feeling like the perfect 'A' list celebrity in that perfect gown. It all evaporates when you realise that you cannot find that perfect gown of your dreams...

Well that's all about to change!  Abbelle is not only a boutique, it's a personal shopping experience and the only location you should be heading to in Hertfordshire for your dream gown.  Customer service will be at the forefront of the Abbelle experience.  A gown register will ensure exclusitivity for your event.  We will be offering 1:1 appointments, weekend walk in's and we'll also be hosting prom and bridesmaids parties.  You will have the opportunity to view our vast array of gowns while you submerse yourself in the Abbelle lifestyle of glitz and glamour.  At Abbelle we put our customers needs first and will therefore be on hand to ensure you find the gown of your dreams.

We will be stockists of Angel Forever, Envious Couture, Jora, Gino Cerruti, Goya, Mascara, Manon, Alyce Paris, Jasz Couture plus many more.  Our gowns will be sourced not only from the UK but also the USA.  Prices starting at £100 upwards and sizes will range from a UK 4 - 22+.   A kaleidoscope of colours, styles, sequins and spakle will await you this Autumn when Abbelle opens its doors for the first time.

We have been researching the idea of setting up our own luxurious gown boutique for the past five years.  With the help from the Wenta Business Centre,  NWES  and support from family and friends, Abbelle is now well on it's way to becoming the most glamourous boutique in Hertfordshire.

We are moving into a unique 16th century shop in the historic 'Old Town High Street' of Hemel Hempstead.  We have big plans for the renovation, fit out and essential kerb appeal, but for all of this to happen we need your help.  We are looking for individuals to not only invest in Abbelle but in us.   We are not only a mother and daughter team, we are best friends who love nothing more than fashion.  

When you invest in Abbelle you will be part of a new brand.  Depending on the size of your investment, you will recieve offers, discounts and invitations to events.   You will truly be part of the Abbelle success story with your name up in lights on our Abbelle 'wall of thanks' both in store and on our social media pages.   We will also send you yearly updates on how Abbelle is doing.

Finally! If you or anyone you know has experienced that 'Pretty Woman' feeling then please, please help us make Abbelle a success and MAKE A PLEDGE.
