I design and sketch every single couture bridal gown, occasion and evening dress. I measure and make every pattern, and do all the pattern-cutting myself, both for the initial version, the toile, and for the final dress. And I oversee my atelier where my team of dressmakers make up the dresses.
You will always deal directly with me and I will always be there at the end of the phone or an email should you have a question about the design process or an idea about your wedding dress that you’d like to share with me.
Many of my bridal clients come for an initial consultation having spotted one of my dresses in a magazine or fallen in love with one they’ve seen on this website. Most have a good idea of what they like and what they don’t. We discuss this and everything else about the wedding at our first meeting.
Here’s how the design process will typically run for a wedding dress. Sometimes, though, more or less appointments may be required, depending on the gown designed. More time may be required between appointments, depending on the fabric and finish chosen. And if you’re having a dress made for an occasion or evening event, a similar process applies, but it will probably be slightly shorter in time frame, depending on the scale of the design.
