FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When/how long before the time do I need to come?

The quick answer? Come as soon as you have your wedding date set. We like to spend some time first on drawing up the sketches, running ideas by you, sourcing fabrics etc before starting the actual construction of the dress. We also only take on a certain amount of brides per season as all dresses are finely made by hand by our in house team of seamstresses.

What is the process, where do I start?

Simply send us an email with a request to book a consultation! Easy.

Can you design something for me?

Yes!! This is what we do! We love making one-of-a-kind dresses and don’t like to repeat designs. Check out our Real Brides for some of our favourite custom made dresses designed specifically for each individual bride.

Can I bring someone with me to the consultation?

We encourage brides to only bring one person with them to the consultation. It gets very overwhelming having to discuss THE dress and we want to hear YOUR thoughts and feelings and not your great aunt's thoughts on how you should be covering up that tattoo or your step-mom telling you that size 8 body of your's is "too curvy". True story. Ps, We love tattoos.

I don’t live in Cape Town, what now?

Send us an email and we’ll tell you what we think the best course of action is. We’ve made custom dresses for brides all over the world and we’re happy to make one for you too!

I have my mom's dress and would like to remake it into something modern for myself, is that something you'd be willing/able to do?

Absolutely! We love stories and sentimentality here so we would be super happy to see how we could remake 

What do your dresses cost?

Not something we like to discuss in public but we’ll happily send you an email with recommendations on what to budget and what to expect.

Do you rent dresses? Or can I have a dress made to rent.

No, all dresses are made to buy and remains the property of the bride.

I like this designer's dress, can you make a copy for me?

Sure, do you want it printed in grey scale or colour? Oh, you meant make a replica of another designer's dress? No.
