What do we enjoy about the custom work we do?

Each custom designed bridal, formal, evening gown or custom costume, accessory is a unique cohesion of the client's wishes and personality. Our studio's innovative and original designs are always embraced with our passion and knowledge of couture craftsmanship, natural fabrication, hand beading and embroidery.

At an initial consultation, we would love to listen your ideas, the venue and mood of your wedding or special event. From the beginning client will be involved in the design and development of their wedding, formal gown or other custom designed items by choosing right fabric, color and style by trying on different styles of gown available at our studio.

You will be provided with initial pencil sketches or graphic artwork, fabric samples to work towards a final design and costing. Our passion for unique fabrics means we work closely with certified or reliable fabric suppliers in order to source the ideal fabric that is not just luxurious to look at, but equally to feel for bride’s or client's skin.

Once finalized the pencil sketch, we take all necessarily measurements and a toile or test garment is then made as a mock-up to perfect the fit and refine the style on the body.


  • Toile fit- we cut a pattern to your own measurement, which is then made up in a cotton or similar fabric. You will be invited in our studio to fit the toile, and any adjustments will be made to your pattern before the wedding or formal gown is cut in your chosen unique fabric.
  • You will then have 1-2 toile fittings and up to 3 gown fittings to ensure you have the absolute perfect fit. Fabrics, embroideries, styling and silhouette can all be tailored to your exact requirements.
  • Once your gown is made in your choice of fabric you will have your first fitting. This in most cases will take place around 1-3 month prior to your wedding or special occasion day. Your gown will be adjusted to the correct length and any small alterations will be done to perfect the dress. You will normally have final fittings before your dress is ready to pick-up 1-2 weeks prior to your wedding or special event day. With all fittings we will be happy to accommodate around your own schedule. 

Price range:

Our custom designed bridal and formal wear prices range from $300 - $3,000 for a made to measure gown. When making a custom design wedding or formal dress, we are able to give a quote once we know all the work involved.

A rush order service is also available if you have your wedding or special occasion coming under 3 months, so please do not hesitate to contact us. Evening and weekend appointments are available.
