“Having your very own bespoke gown is a truly magical experience.”
At the Amy Mair Couture Studio the designer conducts consultations for brides that desire an exclusive custom made gown.
With her many years experience and her passion to produce uniquely feminine and romantic creations with an impeccable fit, you will feel totally inspired and confident after a consultation with Amy.
Amy designs and creates exclusive custom made and made to measure wedding dresses based on each client’s exact requirements and measurements, during fittings held in the showroom boutique.
The showroom boutique is a hub of creativity and luxe, fabrics draped, toiling processes on mannequins and displays of collection dresses. There are mood, design, colour and texture boards with a backdrop of large mirrors and a beautiful interior reflecting cool and earthy colours.
“I envisaged it to be a European, modernistic space with carefully selected furniture.”
The Bespoke Process…
The designer starts talks with the bride at the point of contact and gathers information in preparation for the first consultation, the designer undergoes this task so that she can fulfill the brief and inspire her brides by offering fabric samples, toiling demonstrations on the stand and/or design illustrations. The Showroom has a wealth of fabrics and sample books however to fulfill individual briefs the designer requests samples from her British and European fabric suppliers in preparation for individual appointments.
Some brides may have a strong idea of what they would like to achieve and can envisage this design in the form of a sketch and fabric swatches others like to see a draping on the stand with some pinned lace into a bodice and need further reassurance which is what Amy can offer.
With the information gathered at the consultation Amy can then produce sketches she has prepared and some fabric samples sourced in preparation to the discussion. If the course of design is led somewhere else or there is more research work needed then Amy will prepare for the second consultation if needed.
If you do not have a strong idea of what you would like your gown to look like the designer can advise and talk you through different options and suggest various fabrics and styles that she believes will suit your figure, style and your personality. You can brainstorm design and fabric combinations and feel utterly inspired. With her keen knowledge for the female figure and an astute eye for fashion and trend innovation you will feel happy and secure with the choices made. Amy ensures that the same design and fabric combination will not be used anywhere else!
Each dress is individually made by the designer, the ideal minimum ordering time is anything from 5 months up to 18 months before the wedding date.
We are able to work with tighter deadlines too so please do not hesitate to get in touch..
You might wish to combine details of some of our collection designs or you might wish to personalize a collection gown. For example you may want to introduce small variations to the design such as to remove or add straps or incorporate a style bodice or lace on a different gown. The designer ensures that she is able to create any unique design required by her clients.
