Why choose a custom wedding dress?
You’ve dreamed of what you would wear on your wedding day since you were a little girl and sometimes you’re not able to find that dream dress in-store. If you want a truly unique wedding dress, having one custom-made is the only way to go.
We don’t just help you design a beautiful wedding dress, we make sure it fits you perfectly too. No matter your shape or size, you deserve a dress that makes you feel amazing and we can help you create a dress that not only looks stunning but is comfortable and well-fitted too.
Located on the iconic High Street in Armadale, our bridal atelier houses a range of carefully curated wedding dresses for you to try on to allow you to gain inspiration for your custom wedding dress. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring in images and ideas and we can design your dream gown from those!

You pick up your brand new custom wedding dress
We usually request for 6-8 months but we are flexible as all our gowns are lovingly handcrafted in our Melbourne atelier.
Our Custom made gowns start from $3,500 and the final price will depend on the fabric, lace, and embellishments you choose.
We recommend picking your gown 1 week before the wedding to ensure that it fits you perfectly; however, you can pick it up earlier if you prefer.
We have created gowns for brides all over Australia and internationally. We use zoom or facetime to get the measurements and schedule virtual appointments with the bride to show her the progress before couriering the gown to her.
