Can’t find what you’re looking for? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.
Custom is the crux of what we do. We love hearing your ideas and pulling out all the stops to create something as amazing as you are.
Bridal shower, rehearsal, bridesmaid, special occasion, wedding guest or treat to yourself - whatever the need, we can make it happen. We want to get to know you and your style, and take the guess work out of getting ready, so you can focus on having fun and feeling great.
Consultation with Michael: We talk about the big picture – what you’re envisioning for your big day; venue, details, etc. Pinterest boards, pictures or magazine clippings are great for this step. What adjectives describe the wedding of your dreams? It’s also a good idea to have done some shopping around to have an idea about silhouette, knowing what shapes work and don’t work for your body type. Are there areas you want to hide, emphasize? This step can be done in person or over email.
Design Presentation / Selection: Michael will sketch a few designs and select fabric swatches to present within a few weeks. It’s important to meet in person for this step to modify the design if necessary. You’ll be able to see and feel the swatches to decide on a fabric. We’ll also take your measurements at this stage in the design process.
Once a fabric and design are selected, we will provide the price of your custom gown. The final price includes all fittings and bustling. Unless the design changes significantly, the price will remain the same.
Fittings: Custom gowns require 3 to 5 fittings, with the final fitting 3 weeks before your wedding. Pickup is 1 or 2 weeks before your wedding.
Payment: We require a 50% deposit for custom gowns and final payment upon pickup.
Have an event coming up? Want something amazing to wear? There’s nothing like having a custom piece for a special event. The process is similar to custom bridal, but will likely be abbreviated depending on the design.
