A Cocktail Wedding Dress and Bolero

We don’t do stock wedding dresses.

Because who wants to wear a mass-produced wedding dress? “Mass-produced” and “Wedding,” two things that ought to be mutually exclusive.

Instead we ask all about you, your venue, the expected weather. The things that inspire you, whether other designers, movies, or historical periods.

And we start sketching until we hit on the perfect style and look.

Then we make a muslin of the dress, a cotton mock-up of the dress for you to try on. For local customers, we fit the muslin in person. For long distance customers, we ship the muslin to you and ask for a few simple digital pictures that will aid us in discussing the fit.

The dress in these pictures is from a cocktail themed wedding on New Year’s eve. The dress had to do double duty for the ceremony and the cocktail party reception.

The result was a dress in champange silk duppioni with rows of hand-gathered ruffles and a bolero with handmade silk roses.

And the cost? For around $925 for this dress (depending on the exact materials) the price is still less than most mass produced dresses made from synthetic satins.

So why not get the dress that means something to you and is designed with you in mind?

  1. My partner and I are doing our Commitment Vows soon. We are looking for wedding outfits. She would like a suit, femme style, and I would like a dress that would compliment her outfit. Even matching if possible. Please send me info. Thank you very much.
