About Us & Ethical Practices

Evolution has been a driving force in clothing retail since 2005 providing high quality fast fashion. When owner Miranda Cobb saw a gap in the market for affordable unique and well-made Bridesmaids Dresses the Evolution Bridesmaid range was created.

Evolution's design team has curated a unique, classic and fashion forward selection of beautiful bridesmaid dresses that are made to order for the Brides special day.

Evolution offers a wide range of sizes, styles and colours with a custom colour option also available which is unique to the bridal market. Having firmly cemented their position in the bridal sector Evolution's Bridesmaid range is now a highly sought after option for the fashion savvy bride.
