How we work

Viewing is by appointment at our studio in Dalston, London.
You will be welcomed for an informal chat and to try samples on if you wish.

Our dresses are made to order, so once your decision is made we will take your measurements and discuss any pattern alterations that may be necessary to achieve the perfect fit for you.

On completion of your dress a fitting appointment will be arranged and if alterations are necessary they can be made accordingly.

Prices from £1950  

Please note that pattern and garment alteration charges are not included in the made to order price.

We offer a semi-bespoke service whereby using styles from both our current and archive collection as a basis for adaptation, we will work with you to create your perfect dress. This can include a fusion of  different styles or perhaps just adding a sleeve or changing a neckline.

Prices quoted according to style

A full bespoke service where a dress designed entirely and uniquely for you is offered.

prices from £3000

All dresses are made to order in the UK. We recommend ordering your dress at least four months in advance of your wedding, however we love spontaneity so will always try to accommodate your needs.

A sample of your chosen style may be available to buy immediately so it is always worth enquiring as these are often available at discounted prices.

To complement our collection we occasionally have vintage wedding dresses for sale.
