New Customer Pics

Thuy's pre wedding photographs looking incredible in the little lace gown we created for her. Photographs by Liebehuman Nguyen or

 Sarah's pleated chiffon all American graduation gown (the most gorgeous and well dressed couple at the very front)

I love to see customer pictures of the dresses we have made them being worn at their events, it's usually the first time we get to see the person wearing the dress and it's so exciting to see.
These two came in recently and are just gorgeous photographs.

Golden Blue Cocktail Dress

I found this vintage piece of Japanese fabric a few years ago and have used it for tiny bits of trimming, Christmas wrapping, bags etc and have finally used it to it's full potential in a glittering 50's silhouetted cocktail dress complete with nets. Luckily I saved just enough.
The seams have all been bound in satin, as the fabric looks so sparkling inside I didn't want to hide it under a lining. Trimmed with a metallic grosgrain ribbon bow to finish.
Available to buy here

Scarlet Red Dress

Our super rich scarlet red, taffeta cocktail dress, just in time to warm up those Winter chills. Once again inspired by the 50's cocktail dresses I drool over and this time with a slimmed longer line bodice and full gathered skirt.  Available to be made to order here ......

I'm still working on the red and leopard print dress but in the meantime here are some new dresses we've created for party season from vintage fabrics.

Fabulous Leopard

 Sorry I have been so slack at posting this week. I've been dyeing things (my hands look like a zombie witch's) making collars, making dresses, ordering fabric, having a general clear out to make more space for fabrics (of which I have quite an unhealthy addiction to) and at last sitting down to make sure this bridal collection is wonderfully designed. I now have a line up of nine dresses that I can't wait to get working on!

The leopard thing started last week and these are two dresses I worked on this week. I have been quickly converted to the thought of red and leopard together after posting on facebook that it won't work. I was directed to 'bell book and candle' where I have been assured that red and leopard not only go together but look amazing! Especially on the oh so beautiful Kim Novak.

This second dress is a dark red velvet with leopard cuffs. Gorgeous.
