What our customers say about us
Nina is fantastic!

"I was very nervous at the thought of letting someone design and make my wedding dress, but I had my consultation with Nina and in seconds I knew I was doing the right thing. She drew the image I had in my head of my dress and when she showed me the drawing I was blown away, it was exactly how I imagined it. Nina was brilliant at every appointment and I could even talk with her about little wedding problems I was having. The dress on the day was amazing and I loved it! I wish I could have all my clothes done here!"

A massive thank you

"to Nina for making my beautiful wedding dress! I went to here with a few ideas and she designed and made my dress from scratch. She is so very talented, and so friendly. It was so much fun going in for my fittings. Nina is so easy to talk to and always listens to your ideas! I couldn't be happier with how my dress turned out. Thank you again for doing such a brilliant job!"
