You have dreamed about an unique gown for your wedding. Your desire is my promise, I am convinced that high-end clothes should be affordable to all! Your dress will be designed and hand-made especially for you. Maybe you've already started a scrap book of ideas and looks. I will help you define the best style and cut in order to enhance your body shape. We will discuss fabric, textures, colours, embellishments (re-worked lace, jewels, pearls...). You'll be the most elegant and beautiful; your outfit will for sure add sparkle to your special day!
Furthermore, we can dress up your inner circle of family members and close friends for the best look on the wedding photos! Everyone deserves to look and feel good on this special day! We can also take care of your future husband's tailor-made suit.
Let's decide how to enhance your feminine assets (cleavage, back, legs...) with the most suitable silhouette, neckline, waistline, sleeve style and dress length. You have a budget and a plan, I guarantee you a stress-free process. Designing and fitting sessions are the best part of the pre-wedding preparations, don't you think?
Other celebrations and parties require a high-class style. If you're looking for individuality, a bespoke outfit is the key!
I am inspired by Art Nouveau, where feminity is graciously presented through continuities and asymmetries. Contrasting colours and textures play an important role. That's how I see my creative contribution in the making of your wedding or party outfit. I am in charge for every step of the process: from drawing your unique pattern, to ordering your chosen fabric, to assisting you during the fitting and creation of your final dress. There's no third party involved, it's all made by myself in Belgium!
♦ You can choose your fabric from a wide range of colours and woven fibers (satin, silk, crepe, dupioni, shantung, taffeta, organza...). This is based on your budget. I usually recommend natural high-end fabrics but polyester can be used as a cheaper choice, without actually looking cheap. Your satisfaction is my ultimate goal; I will do all I can to make you look fabulous, feminine and stylish!
♦ You can match your husband's outfit with yours. We can coordinate your fabric with his tie, bow-tie or other embellishment. I can also make a very own tailored suit for your husband. Your wedding pictures will look better if we think beforehand of the styling you may want for your bridesmaids, parents and children.
♦ The price depends on the fabric you choose. My values are: quality in dress making, care and attention to you. I am personally in charge every step of the way, with calmness, confidence and serenity.
♦ 1st appointment 50 € (which will be refunded in case of an effective order) + 1/3 deposit required to proceed further.
A wide range of silk fabrics awaits you in my studio: taffeta, crepe, dupioni, pongee... Bring pictures of ideas you'd like for your dress. Together we can discuss textures, fabrics, lace & embellishments, silhouette, length and colours that will work to enhance your natural beauty and your feminine assets with elegance and individuality. We take into account your budget, planning and the expected delivery date. Your measurements will be taken. Then I can begin drawing your unique pattern.
♦ 2nd appointment - 1/3 deposit required.
First fitting: you will try on a maquette of your dress to check how it fits. I recommend you also bring along your wedding day lingerie and shoes, for us to get an overview.

I can either deliver free of charge within 20 km round Aalst/Alost, or you're invited to my studio to collect your dress.
Since my childhood I've kept myself busy with drawing fashion and making clothes. For my first wedding, I designed and sewed an opulent red dress made of silk and real peacock feathers. My son and my then future husband wore ties made from the same fabric.
For two years I've trained intensely as a stylist and a seamstress at Syntra. Feedback about my creations has been very positive, particularly concerning pattern cutting, creativity and tidiness of the finished product.
