BESPOKE BRIDAL WEAR

The first step towards your dream wedding gown is a one-to-one appointment.

You can bring your own clippings or drawings to show your preferences. While creating the design of your dress the venue, type of ceremony, season, time of day and colour theme is also taken into consideration. We will sketch ideas until you feel we found the right design for you. Then we calculate the cost of materials and work required to achive a desired finish.

Once you are happy with the design a basic toile is created in calico which gives you an idea of how the dress will look. The toile is fitted until it looks and feels perfect. Then the work on your dress can begin.

We can source the right silk fabric and lace for you or recommend a number of our trusted suppliers. You can also supply your own materials if you wish. We can embellish your dress with beading in Swarovski crystals and pearls or add luxurious applique and feathers.

A series of dress fittings (usually 3-6 depending on the style and finish required) are needed until a couple of weeks before your wedding to ensure the dress will fit perfectly on your big day.

BESPOKE OCCASION AND EVENING WEAR

The exclusive bespoke services are available also on maid of honour dresses, mother of the bride/groom outfits, eveningwear and occasion wear.

The process of creating a bespoke garment is very similar to creating a bespoke wedding gown, but in many cases it is less elaborate and does not always need a calico toile to be created.

We can source the fabrics for you or you can supply your own materials if you prefer to do so.

BESPOKE MILLINERY

When designing a bespoke millinery piece (hat, headdress, veil, fascinator, clips, collar, wings or other accessory) it's very important to bring with you an outfit you intend to wear with your headdress/accessory. Initially you can try on our collection pieces to have a perfect idea of what kind of headdress/accessory would be most suitable. We will discuss and sketch an ideal design starting from the base up, specifying all components and their colour as well as measurements and proportion.

Then the work can begin. Some headdresses and accessories may need a fitting before completion to ensure everything is to your satisfaction and the best is to try the headdress together with the intended outfit. Thus we can check the overall silhouette and make adjustments if needed to achieve the desired look.
