Fuschia, Pink, White Wedding Dress Kacii wanted a dress with pinks and whites, sparkles and bows. We delivered! Making a dress like this is a bit of a challenge. It started off as a fishtail dress silhouette, made from a boned and structured polyester Duchesse satin dress. Once we had the shape perfected we started adding all the tulle pieces. I have no idea how many pieces we made but in the region of 30 meters of 1.5 meter wide tulle in the 3 colours Fuschia, pink and white,  cut into pieces was added to the skirt in the 3…

Waterfall Wedding Dress

Waterfall Wedding Dress, in the making. Carol sharing what great times she and her husband-to-be had enjoyed in Norway. The engagement even happened at Kjossfossen Waterfall. They share a love of the Fjords and the water in all its aspects. Carol wanted me to incorporate this in her bespoke Waterfall Wedding dress. This is exciting! Choosing the soft pale blue-green silk became the base of the dress. Then sequined and silk embroidered tulle overlay was picked for the overlay of the bodice. Then fine pure silk chiffon with cascades overlaying the skirt. And a deep deep fake cowl neck at…

French – Irish Wedding

French-Irish wedding Uniting families, people, and countries, how beautiful! For us, it started with a lovely request from Marion. She wanted a soft wedding dress for Wedding in Chalet de la Serra, Lamoura, France. She wanted it soft, romantic, not too hot to wear.

Magenta Wedding Dress

Magenta Wedding Dress Magenta was the colour choice for Kirsten’s bespoke wedding dress. She wanted an exclusive and special dress she could wear for the wedding, and for events afterward. Kirsten runs her own art business and has such an eye for colours and textures. It was lovely working with her and experiencing her expertise. I fully feel we met the brief.

But cutting out all the different patterns in the edging and overlay…

Wedding at Newhall Estate

Wedding dress for Wedding at Newhall Estate When Charlotte asked us to make her wedding dress, it was equally scary and exciting. We had recently made wedding dresses to 2 of her best friends, and the pressure was on. We wanted to make something for her, which was equally amazing and very different from the 2 girlfriends dresses. More pressure was applied as Jak, Charlotte’s fiance is a wedding professional and with his family runs the Newhall Estate. We love that place! We feel honored for invitations in the past to do a photoshoot in the lovely grounds. That Dress!…
