DESIGN & CREATE


A wedding gown is probably the most memorable outfit you’ll ever wear.
Our Made-to-Measure Service is here to help you create a dress you’ll treasure forever.

Or perhaps you’re looking to draw inspiration from a designer or a particular dress?
Our team are here to help you create a gown that’s uniquely yours – from drawing board to fitting room.

We also offer a special ‘re-creation’ service for items that you’d like to re-imagine in a different colour, fabric or length.

HOW IT WORKS

1


Initial consultation

This is all about inspiration and collaboration. We’ll arrange a discussion between you and one of our design team, and you’ll work together to sketch a drawing. Once you’re happy with what you see, we’ll take your measurements and start bringing it to life.

2


Choose your fabric

From organza, delicate silks and luxurious satins, to beaded fabrics, lace and tulle, it’s time to choose the fabric for your dress. Of course, we’ll be on hand to make recommendations and we’re very happy to work with fabrics you already own or want to source yourself.

Your toile fitting

The better your wedding dress fits, the better it will look. That’s why we always create designs in simple cotton first – this is known as ‘fitting the toile’. Our tailors will check your measurements and fabric choice before we move onto the next – and most exciting – stage…

Making your wedding gown

Depending on its design we’ll make your gown in two or three stages – which may require a few more fittings. We’ll start by making sure the main features are right like the neckline, sleeves and hems, before adding the tiny details that will bring your dream dress to life.

The finishing touch

We want you to get as much as possible from our Bespoke Service. The finishing touch is you, wearing the perfect dress. Once you’re completely happy with the finished piece, you can walk away with it that very day!


How long does it take

We recommend allowing three months for a made-to-measure wedding dress. And we may need up to six for more complex and detailed pieces.
