Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the bespoke process take for bridalwear?

 

A minimum of four months is needed to complete your design from initial design through to the delivery of your dress. However the earier the better, so when you know you are ready for a bespoke dress, please contact me.

Do you have a shop?

 

At the moment I do not have a shop, I work from home so all my dresses are currently made from my home studio.

Do you have any dresses that i can try on?

 

No, because I make dresses to order I do not have any that are available to try on. I may have the odd sample that could be tried on, however as they are made for photo shoots they are small in size.

Do you have any off the peg dresses to purcahse?

 

No, not this moment in time. My dresses are all handmade to order. I do have a few sample dresses which can be sold, however again they are small in size.

Do you take on alterations?

 

Yes I do take on alterations for bridal, bridesmaids and general eveningwear. If you are looking to re-design a garment I can also help with this as well.

Why Buy Bespoke?

 

Bespoke design delivers a wide variety of amazing benefits:

 

- Your dress will be unique so you will not find anyone else wearing a dress like yours;

 

- Having a bespoke dress can work out cheaper than ordering through a bridal supplier and paying for alterations;

 

- Everything is designed and handcrafted by me in Doune, so you know exactly where your dress is coming from and who is making it;

 

- Everything is made to measure so you don’t need to pay for additional alterations when your dress is ready;

 

- All my fabrics are sourced within the UK thus avoiding any delays and long lead times waiting for fabrics to arrive;

 

- I only use silk/natural fabrics that are not harmful to the environment, protecting our planet is very important to me. This doesn’t necessarily mean a price escalation. In the grand scheme of things a polyester dress is only on average 10% cheaper than a silk dress.
