How to Buy
Once you’ve looked at our online selection the next step is to visit the Studio. We are open from Tuesday until Saturday from 10am until 5pm. We recommend that you make an appointment so we can give you our undivided attention, but you’re very welcome to drop in when you’re passing too.
We’re not a shop or an outlet for mass manufacturers and we don’t have racks of identical dresses all the same. Our designs are all unique and exclusive to us and in addition we stock a small range of accessories and jewelery. When you visit us we’ll be delighted to show you our sample dresses and to talk to you about your personal style. We’ll listen carefully to what you like to wear, which colours suit you and which occasion you’re dressing for.
If you fall in love with one of our designs then we’ll be happy to make it for you, but we can also personalise all of the details such as the neckline, the sleeves or the hem length. We’ll talk you through our incredible choice of fabrics and the amazing range of colours they are available in until we find the perfect one for you.
If you already have your dream dress in your head Maria will be delighted to design it for you, bringing every single detail to life in our unique Bespoke Design service, just as you always imagined it. (You can find out more about our Bespoke Design Service on our ‘Design your Dream Dress’ page.)
We’ll then measure you and make a pattern that is absolutely unique to perfectly fit your proportions before making your chosen style in your chosen fabric. Whether you choose to start with one of our designs or choose the bespoke design route the result will be truly unique, hand made to the very highest couture standards in-house in our Cheshire Studio.
The entire process can take up to three months, and up to six months for Bridal Gowns. We take a 50% deposit at the time of order, with the balance due at your first dress fitting. Payment can be made by credit or debit card, cheque, bank transfer or cash.
If you have any questions, or we can help further, don’t hesitate to call or email us.
