Made to Order process: When you choose the Made to Order process, you select a garment from one of our bridal collections. This garment will be made in a UK standard size. If you desire a more tailored fit, you can opt for our optional Toile service. For an additional fee, the Toile service allows us to create the garment to your precise measurements, ensuring the best possible fit. 

Bespoke process: In the Bespoke process, you will collaborate directly with our designer, Gbemi Okunlola. The designer will design a unique garment tailored to your preferences and requirements. She will create a personalised sketch, which will then be crafted into your one-of-a-kind garment. The Toile service is included in all bespoke orders, ensuring a perfect fit for your custom creation.

This service involves us creating a Toile, or mock dress which is a prototype of your garment created in a calico fabric made using your exact measurements. It mirrors the shape of your intended dress but lacks detailing. We'll schedule a fitting for you in this mock dress to assess the fit. Any adjustments or alterations needed will be noted, ensuring the final dress fits you perfectly. The mock dress serves as a guide in our atelier, ensuring your real dress has the best fit tailored to your body. We offer an international bride process for this service, please contact us for further information.
