Ann concentrates solely on a Couture dress design service,
specialising in weddings and Special Occasion wear & soft tailoring. She does not produce "collections" or supply dresses to any shops, instead offering an individual service to suit your dress
requirements. Every design / commission is personal to each client, and no two dresses are identical.
The service typically includes:
- Design meetings
- Fabric search
- Fabric sampling to selection
- Design sketches
- Fabric Toile or mock-up to ensure correct fit and style
- Several fittings, from Toile preparation through to completing the dress
- Full telephone support for all aspects of the "Big Day"
Additional services can be arranged for the Wedding Day,
including overseeing dressing, styling for the photographs, and needles and pins to cater for unforseen emergencies. Ann can also provide sets of her "working" photographs to give you an informal record of
your wedding. Please visit the Portfolio page to see some examples.
Meetings and fittings can be arranged at your home, including evenings and weekends if required.
Ann can also design and make other outfits for your Wedding, including:
- Mother of the Bride
Please refer to the Profile page for information about Ann's background & experience.
Fabric search and sampling
Ann carries sample books for many different
silk suppliers, and can match or locate most Designer Bridal fabrics. This takes much of the legwork out of choosing fabrics - she carries more samples than you could ever find in a day in London. If you
prefer to search for your own fabrics, Ann can suggest suitable sockists and suppliers - please take a look at the Addresses page.
