Our Process

Initial Fitting

During your initial fitting, we'll work collaboratively to identify the changes you need to your garment and will iron out the best approach to achieve the results you're after. Appointments fill up quickly! We recommend booking about 2 to 3 months before your event.


Note: It is extremely important to bring the shoes and shapewear that will be worn with the gown. 


Try Ons

Depending on the alterations needed, a second fitting may or may not be required about 3 weeks later to ensure we've got your garment exactly as you've imagined! 


Pick Up

Done! Your garments will be ready for you to pick up - and you're off to enjoy your special day.
