Step one

DESIGN APPOINTMENT

Your bespoke wedding dress journey begins with an initial discovery consultation with our Creative Director Felicity. The appointment can be held in-person at our beautiful atelier or via video call for your convenience. This one hour, complimentary appointment is an opportunity for you to share your vision with Felicity, from silhouette, to fabric, to feel. We want to know everything. Not sure where to begin? No problem. Felicity will be there to help you explore every possibility and introduce you to your dream couture bridal dress. She will translate your ideas into a design sketch which will form the blueprint for your wedding dress. With the perfect design ready, we are going to start working on bringing your dream bespoke wedding dress to life.

“Even without meeting in person, the design she created from our first call was everything I’d pictured and more…” 

Step two

CREATION

With your final design approved, we will schedule another appointment for your measurements to be taken (either virtual or in-person). We will create custom patterns using paper and your measurements. A toile (an early version of a garment in an alternative fabric) will be created and you will be invited to your first fitting. This will allow us to adjust and perfect the toile to ensure you are completely happy with what will soon become your dress. During your toile fitting, we will explore different laces, fabrics, trims and embroideries. This exploration will give you a clear vision of your dress. After your first fitting in the toile, we will proceed to work on your actual gown with our selection of quality and luxurious fabrics and materials. We will arrange subsequent fittings accordingly and invite you back to our atelier to try on your couture bridal dress at different stages on your bespoke journey.

FINAL FITTING

After meticulously perfecting every inch of fabric, every seam and every stitch, it’s time to meet your finished wedding dress. We will contact you to arrange a preferred date and time for your final fitting. During this appointment, you will try your finished bespoke wedding dress on for one final check. Your dream bespoke wedding dress will be safely packaged so that it can be taken home the same day (if you can bring yourself to take it off that is).
