We are LIVACO, We Import Wholesale Excite Dresses

We started as an import agency mainly dealing with lingeries from Europe for over 20 years. Especially,
with LISE CHARMEL France, we have the longest-standing exclusive relationships.
At the same time, we have always been looking for something attractive to provide Japanese customers seeking for something different.


One day, our executive lerned one of his old friends had been engaging on bridal business for long time. He established his own company as total wedding production to forcus more on consulting the dress shops to fit them in line with the time.


We started the collaboration to introduce the allure of import dresses to Japanese customers.


We are working together for change. A change that will not only exceed customer expectations, but also contribute to the industry's overall growth and development.


Carol Hannah Whitfield (or CH) is a transplanted gal from South Carolina and a self taught designer living in NYC and feeding her obsession with dresses on a daily basis. CH began sewing at the ripe age of seven under her mom's instruction. Over the years, her once secretive hobby blossomed into a profession as she found her home in the dreamy world of the bridal industry. Carol Hannah loves the personal nature of bridal, getting to hear her clients' stories, and helping happy folks bring their wedding day vision to fruition. When not in her studio, she can be found scouring New York's vintage markets, traveling for trunk shows with our retailers, and drawing things in the middle of the night (#chmidnightdoodles).

エーエム フォークナー

AM Faulkner is a contemporary bridal accessories studio. We specialise in headpieces and veils for the modern bride, the unconventional bride, the tom boys, the romantics, the girls who know their style. Each one of our pieces is crafted by hand in our East London studio using artisan techniques and ethically sourced materials. We are proud to be able to trace the origins of every single fabric and element used in our work.

Trained by former Royal milliner Rose Cory but with a background in constructed textiles, textile design is hugely important within her practice. A lot of the fabrics used have been designed and produced in-house using a variety of experimental embroidery techniques. With an emphasis on simple forms and beautiful material, Ann-Marie sensitively combines contemporary and innovative textile design with traditional British millinery techniques to produce her signature pieces.
