Memorable dress, unforgettable day

From ball gowns to your entire wedding outfit, Cargo Clothing is the place to go to find the perfect dress for your perfect day.

Your wedding day is a day you will spend planning for what seems like a glorious age. Before the question is even popped you will most likely already have a good idea of what the special day will look like. Of course, the wedding dress is as iconic as the wedding band on your finger, so finding the perfect one will be high on the list of priorities. Luckily, the team at Cargo Clothing know this well and are passionate about making us look and feel fabulous for that most cherished occasion.

Owner Sue explains: “We are obsessed with the endless search to bring you the world’s best dress designers and the most beautiful collections of dresses, gowns and fashion ranges. We want to make you look and feel amazing, whatever the occasion.”

It is apparent from the first time you enter the Penryn-based shop that Cargo really does care about the whole shopping experience as every detail is well thought out. A lovely quiet environment with comfortable sofas provides parents and partners with a place to relax while offering the occasional sounds of awe as you try on and show-off the beautiful dresses.

While Cargo is still celebrated for its wide selection of prom dresses and ball gowns, there are now a lot more customers looking for wedding dresses and bridesmaids’ dresses. “Many of our dresses are perfect
for a wedding. They are relatively inexpensive so make a real alternative to the usual wedding gown. There are a couple of designers that are particularly appropriate: Sherri Hill, Pia Michi and new addition Elle Zeitoune, whose dresses range from £195 to £750.”

The team at Cargo really care about your shopping experience. From the moment you try on that perfect little black dress to the moment you look in the mirror and see yourself walking down the aisle, the Cargo team are there to make the experience unique and enjoyable; they even have the designer shoes and killer heels to complete the look.

Cargo is currently open seven days a week in order to accommodate prom season, but times will vary depending on the time of year. You can check the opening times on the Cargo website or simply give the helpful team a call and they will be more than happy to advise. So why not pop over to the shop now and find your dream outfit for the big day!
