Whilst looking at wedding attire around the world we notice that there are many businesses that are tailoring to the gender non-conforming wedding market. These and many more will be show-cased on our blog over the coming year for ideas, inspiration and perhaps a little adaptation to your wedding day.
Whilst many of these attire vendors are not based in Australia (remember we are catching up a little since we are the last first world English speaking country in the world to legislate marriage equality) we think they provide much inspiration for our queer couples.

Jag & Co.
Masculine-of-center CEO and founder Jaguar Beckford originally had a background in entertainment law and began Jag & Co. as a way of introducing a place where everyone could comfortably find clothing. “It was a very uncomfortable feeling from the ‘Can I help you?’ like I wasn’t supposed to be present in the store, [and] not knowing how to assist me with sizing,” Beckford tells them. “I said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great to have a company where people can come in [to] have a consultation, where you could really make that situation a comfortable environment, a safe environment?'”
Jaguar and Company Clothier also known as "Jag & Co.," Designed by music industry veteran, E. Jaguar Beckford (Jag), an Executive Producer and Juris Doctorate of Law in Entertainment, the Jaguar & Company Clothier Collection draws its inspiration from her taste for the elitist lifestyle, always stylish and fashionably comfortable.
Established, February, 2013, the line both masculine and feminine identified, boasts a collection that combines the artistic beauty of vibrant patterns with luxurious fabrics such as cotton voile, silk, and wool, to produce a dual style of vintage chic meets contemporary.
What makes Jag & Co special is, it offers pieces for men, women, the fashion forward and the fashion novice. Jag shares her innovative designs with you in mind. What makes it even more interesting is their passion for "green." She designs, cuts, re-designs, using and re-using metal parts, buttons, zippers, cutting pieces, constructing and re-constructing into new "green forward" products. This concept of recycling is part of their "Corporate Social Responsibility" in which everyone team member and strategic partner is committed to.
What I love most about being a designer and stylist is working with a plethora of body types. I love to meet someone and totally transform them. When I'm styling there are no mirrors in the room. I tell the model that this is all about trust. This is about what I see as my vision for this look, for this day, for this event. Then, what I love the most is the look on their face when they get to strut in front of a mirror and then onto the landscaped runway. It's magical. Consult with us for your wedding, or special event, you'll be convinced that we have your best interest in hand.
