The Outlaw Bride

It is always hard to choose a favorite.

But, if I had to choose, I would pick this outfit as the most stunning look from our Bespoke Outlaws Collection.

We built this collection by reimagining historical photos of Victorian women outlaws.  But we definitely weren’t looking to create a look that was straight-up historical.

You could think of it as an alternate history.

Modern day wedding dresses are steeped in Victorian and Edwardian history.  But suppose that in the late Victorian era most women were gunslingers and former soldiers—how would today’s bride dress?

The top combines a corset with a holster/halter built around a fabulous bow that flows into something like a cape.  The corset than attaches to a cropped cavalry pant.

And over the top of both pieces, a woolen bustle tailcoat with lapels of handwoven silk.

The result is like nothing the world has ever seen.

Completely bridal.  Utterly BOLD.

We are one of the last studios in the USA that does true couture and dressmaking.

You tell us about yourself, and we work with you to Sketch, Fit, and Sew a design that is utterly individual.

No matter what part of the world you live in, we can make a tailcoat, corset, suit or dress for you.
