Finally, Truly Unique Wedding Dresses!
I will capture your spirit in a truly unique wedding dress and delight you with genuine customer service.
We start by getting to know each other…
I work with clients all over the US, Canada, and Europe. Weather you schedule a consultation over the phone or in person you will get to speak directly with me and work with me through the entire creation of your dress. Be sure to book your order in advance as I book a limited number of orders each year. Book your personal consultation here.
In my studio there are samples of dresses for you to see, feel, and try on. It is full of fabrics, trims, sketches, and inspiration. I work primarily with natural fabrics like hemp blends, organic cotton, peace silks, and bamboo. I also use remnants and vintage fabrics, vintage lace, and trim. I will also source specialty fabrics, lace and trims. Vermont life magazine described my fashion house as “a tree house stuffed with magpie treasures.”
Once you contact me I will send you a personal interview to find out more about you! That is how I design a dress that suits your personality and your body: a unique wedding dress just for you.
Made-to-Order vs. Custom-Made Wedding Dresses
Made-to-Order Personalized Wedding Dresses
I offer a collection of made-to-order gowns. This means you can modify or personalize a number of the wedding dress styles that are featured on the site. Athena, Mariana, Farfalla and Fiorella are some of the most popular styles that are ordered and personalized for each individual bride. These styles and about a dozen others can be ordered in a standard size 2-12 or a custom size for an additional fee. All of the made-to-order wedding dresses are cut to length without an additional fee. You can request style modifications of all kinds including special fabric requests, trim options, and neckline and silhouette changes. If you order modifications and a custom size, I prefer that you travel to the studio for an in-house fitting. Clients describe their fitting as a mini-vacation before your wedding. My Collection prices range from $1,000 – $15,000. Dresses over $3,000 include a custom size and require an in house fitting, this is the best way to achieve an impeccable fit.
Custom-made Unique Wedding Dresses
A custom wedding dress includes your consultation, reviewing sketches, choosing fabrics, your custom pattern, fittings, and a fabulously fitted, finished dress. When you order a custom dress it is a fun process as we work one-on-one with through the each step of the creation process.
I start by getting to know more about you including photos of you and your partner. This helps me wrap my head around your personality and style. Then I can start to sketch dresses and style options for you. I will provide fabric options based on your requests and my recommendations.
Then the pattern making process begins. Sometimes I will drape a new design. I have padding that I use to shape my dress forms to match your measurements as close as possible. During your fitting I want to be sure you love the fit, style, and the way you feel in your dress. Clients find that coming to Vermont for fittings is like a mini vacation as they take time to enjoy the scenery and play outside between fittings. Most fit samples are made in the dress fabrics as it is important to see how the fabric drapes. A final fitting involves hemming–and this is where the shoes come in! Client will start planning jewelry and hair as we pull the entire look together. When you order a custom-made wedding dress, I will set up a private client portal with a unique login and password where you can view images of your wedding dress in development and share them with friends and family. A custom wedding dress starts at $6,000. Specialty fabrics, embellishments, lace, embroidery, and dress design variations all determine the cost. When contacting me about your unique custom wedding dress, please advise your wedding date, styles you are considering, and your budget so I can plan for you accordingly.
Because of the nature of what I do and how personalized the garments are I accept a limited number of orders each year so please be sure to book your order in advance, a minimum of 1 year to 6 months is preferred depending on the season.
