Designer Q & A :
What inpires you ?
Women inpire me! who they are, how they look, what they say, and how they speak. Every design i have ever done has always had a certain type of wearing it, so once i've decided who that women is, then i design everything else to follow. This is why i love designing for brides, as every bride is an individual.
What can bride expect from their experience with you ?
They always work with me, the designer, from the first consultation to the finnal fitting oftheir gown on pick up. They will also be advised on the direction of the look, from her hair & make up to the right flowers. It's a full experience.

Couture dress is about the quality of fabrics & workmanship, but its not just about the gown - its also bout the feeling comfortable & confident with a designer who gets you, who understands what you want and is able to interpret that into your gown.
