After 16 years, Lara B have decided to close their doors.
Lara the designer for the Lara B Couture collection has enjoyed serving and creating dresses for her brides over the years.
Unfortunately the Covid pandemic has added extra strain and her business plan for Lara B just couldn't continue.
Lara, who owns Martha V in Newmarket, will wind the business down in Martha V. All our brides have been notified. Although very sad, Lara feels this is the natural end to the business and closes with immense pride to have been able to work with amazing people and do it with passion and love of her job.
We have some dresses and accessories for sale, so please email to book an appointment to try these on.
Please email as normal for any enquiries. The premises will be vacated about Mid August 2021.

Past, Present, and Future
Since opening in 2005, Lara B has gained a reputation in East Anglia for stocking unique gowns. Our very professional, friendly and honest service is why we come highly recommended.
Lara has a degree in fashion and textile design and has worked within the industry for over 20 years. She has worked with big High Street names designing lingerie in the past. Now she designs her own label Lara B Couture and hasn't looked back.
Lara B has always stocked designer gowns by well known designers. But recently, Lara felt inspired and ready to fulfill her dream of becoming a designer again. She saw a gap in the market, as brides were always saying they loved the top of one dress and the bottom of another.
Hence, the birth of 'Lara B Couture' happened in 2015. The range is built of separate tops and skirts to mix and match into a dress. With its bespoke service of atelier design, it's a truly special concept. After finding the right combinations for you, it will be made into a dress, right here in the UK. Some brides have a strong vision for their dress, and Lara can design and work with each bride, to create that bespoke one off dress!
"I have been overwhelmed by it's success and absolutely love working on new designs and working with so many brides who want real bespoke gowns. I am so excited for the future this collection has. I never really appreciated how special and unique this service would be when launching the collection. Brides love being able to create their own dress design using the separates, design changes with me if needed and they have a dress made into their choice, right here in the UK and very local to Newmarket." Lara Kinnett, 2018
We continue to operate an appointment-only basis, with one bride for each appointment. This enables us to give 100% of our expertise and knowledge to each individual bride. Lara and her trained staff help advise and create each bride's perfect dress. The collection has over 200 combinations to create a dress from. Mix and match the options and you will get your own personal gown!
We look forward to seeing you in store very soon.
