Photo Slideshow from Rebecca & Paul’s Wedding at Sydney Dance Studios

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Hello everyone!

Have a look here at some highlights of my couture bridal gown client Rebecca and Paul’s sophisticated and romantic wedding at Sydney Dance Studios.

Rebecca’s gown was made in Silk Dupion, Silk Organza and a very fine English Tulle. All the draping was done by hand throughout the whole bodice and skirt and we also made her veil in the same matching fine Tulle. Rebecca teamed this with a beautiful head piece she bought herself for a stunning and high fashion look.

Rebecca and Paul’s wedding was shot by the very talented Uber Photography who I have found to be very friendly and approachable. I look forward to seeing more of their weddings soon. If you’re looking for a professional Sydney North Shore Photographer then you can check them out here:

Oh and I love the music they chose for the slideshow.. Might have to look up that song on iTunes soon!

A full post about Rebecca and Paul’s story & more detail about Rebecca’s couture wedding gown to come soon!

Something Old (into) Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Designer..

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Hello to all my lovely clients, brides, and followers!

Since we recently updated our The Designer profile images, I thought I’d share a little bit of inspiration about what inspired the jacket I created and wore in the original Designer page shoot:

These images were taken by the very talented Robin Foster of Foster Photography.

I was inspired to create this jacket design when I was exploring an antique store in Paddington and I came across an old brocade blanket.. I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it, despite many concerned looks from my friends..

I designed, pattern made and sewed the whole thing myself (quite a labour of love). I carefully matched up all the intricate designs of the panels and I hand stitched the button holes. As for the buttons.. Well I was very happy when I found those gorgeous copper metal ones.

So as you can see we have wide ranging services available apart from our couture bridal niche.. We can create whole outfits and styled looks for Mother of the Bride or Groom, Bridesmaids, Formal dresses, Racewear etc.. With couture made-to-measure design the list can include anything you wish to wear and in any size you require..

If you would like to discuss your wedding gown design OR another outfit, give me a call or send me an email – details on my contact page.
