Cari's Closet owner Lisa Duffy is well used to dressing the city's celebrities. She's the go-to girl for everyone from Colette Fitzpatrick to Roz Purcell and Rosanna Davison when it comes to kitting them out for the big events.

Now she has turned her attentions towards the capital's blushing brides.

She has just opened up a new bridal shop around the corner from her existing store in Malahide as she dips her toe into the wedding market.

Located on Strand Street, she will be unveiling all the details at a bash in the northside town tomorrow night where she'll be joined by all her best pals and loyal customers.

Like her main boutique, all the couture gowns will be available to hire and will bring together some leading designers including Berta, Badgley Mischka, Dhalia Dimitrus and Jovani Couture.

She has also turned her attentions towards designing bridal wear and has devised a new collection called LDK which will be available in-store.

A former social worker, Lisa opened up her shop in May 2012 , naming it after her young daughter Cari.
