getting a do you start

We offer 3 options for brides to choose from:

1. Having a dress custom made. This is the one we're known for.

2. Buying a finished, one-of-a-kind dress from our Couture collection.

 3. Buying an outfit from our ready-to-wear bridal collection, Leilah James


Custom Made

This is what Janita Toerien is known for. Everything, from proportion to fabric, buttons to veil is taken into consideration with a process that starts with a one-on-one consultation. 

This is ideal for the bride who want a dress unique to her, who cannot find what she's looking for or who struggle to find the perfect fit.

If you think this is the option for you please read the info on THIS page and have a look at our previous brides on THIS page!

Couture, sometimes such an intimidating word, but it basically refers to a high-quality garment made or finished mostly by hand. Our couture range consists of only 8 dresses, unique and one-of-a-kind in one size only and made with the purpose of being the only one.

This is ideal for a bride who cannot come to the required amount of fittings needed for a custom made dress but who would like something unique.
