The Bespoke Bridal Boutique
About The Bespoke Bridal Boutique
My name is Laura and I am an emerging alternative, bespoke wedding dress designer and dress maker. I run a very small business (just me) currently from my home, which makes my service very personal and something I am passionate about.
I graduated in 2013 with a BA Hons in fashion design from De Montfort University. I fell into the wedding industry by firstly designing and making my friends wedding dress (which I absolutely loved!!) and then the recommendations came from there. So far my clients have struggled to find what they are looking for off the peg, looking for alternative, vintage inspired or bohemian gowns. Something a little different! They have come to me with a vague idea of the type of gown they would like, I have then helped them to design their dream dress ensuring that the fit is spot on so that my clients feel amazing on their big day.
I offer a free consultation (so really nothing to lose) from that I will start designing to your specification, Once a design is settled upon, a toile (mock up) of your dress is made and the fitting process can begin (the toile can be changed and amended as required). I like to do at least 3 dress fittings to ensure your bespoke wedding dress fits perfectly. Fabric sourcing is the most exciting part of the design process (previously all my clients have come with me to London, which they all found really exciting to see and choose their fabric). Once the toile is correct and the fabric purchased the final dress is made, there is then one last fitting to make sure the dress is perfect.
If you're struggling to find your perfect wedding dress off the rack, then get in touch to arrange a consultation and get a quote.
