Your Dream Dress
The Bespoke Experience
From the moment you walk in the door you will feel the excitement that this unique experience will be something special. You will be provided with a personalized service that you can trust and rely on, a space where you can communicate your fears, your needs and what you love.
The process will encapsulate you, your gown is no longer a product on a rack, it is a creative service you can take part of. The step by step process and attention to detail allows you to be confident as the design evolves and ensures the fit of your gown is perfect.
For your big day Kara is here to give you the dress of your dreams alongside a completely unforgettable experience.
1At your first appointment you may try on a selection of gowns to get a feel for what you like or alternatively you may sit down with Kara to have something personally sketched up for you. Don’t worry if you are unsure as to what you are after yet, that is what we are here for. You then will be shown through a selection of beautiful fabrics and laces that can be interchanged within each design to craft an individual look for you.
From here, Kara will provide you with a quote for your gown and bespoke service.
To book your initial consultation, please send us an enquiry through our contact page or send us an email at email@example.com. Ideally this appointment will be 6-12 months before your wedding.
Once you have decided on a design that you love, we take a 50% deposit to get started, with the balance payable on pick up of your gown. The price of your gown includes all materials, fittings and communications with Kara. Our prices range from $2900-$6000 depending on design style and materials, with our average cost of a made to measure gown $3800.
2Over the first two fittings you will see your design develop from a sketch to a calico toile. This mock up gown is made from your measurements and then crafted around your figure in the basic silhouette of your design. We will work through the shapes of the front and back necklines, design lines and fit of the gown. Here we will confirm all of your fabrics, laces and embellishments.
3From this point your gown is crafted by hand in our studio with your desired fabrics and unique embellishments. At this third fitting you will see your dress come to life with all the finer details added.
4Approximately four weeks out from your wedding you will have your last fitting before you take home your gown. At this fitting your gown will be near completion, we will check the gown is fitting you perfectly and all aspects of the design are flawless. By this stage you will have found your perfect shoes and we will hem your gown to your desired length.
5The most exciting part of all! Two weeks before your wedding you will take home your gown. At this final appointment we put you in your dress, complete with all buttons and fastenings. Here you can view the gown as a whole and make sure you are 100% happy with everything before you leave the studio.
Kara is here to make the lead up to your big day a beautiful, exciting and relaxing experience, always to be remembered. Embodying your personal style and Kara’s expertise as a fashion designer, you can be confident your gown and experience will be all that you have envisaged and more.
