WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY CONSULT?
It is advisable to wear nude underwear and bring a pair of heels. As space is limited and choosing a gown is a very personal experience, please limit the number of people you bring to two supportive people. Please avoid heavy make-up on the day of your appointment as it can rub-off on the gowns during your fitting. Any marks or stains that occur during your
appointment will attract a fee to cover the cost to have the gown cleaned.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR ORDERING A GOWN?
Should you fall in love with one of our gowns, we will send you a quote and request a 60% deposit to confirm your order. We need at least 4-6 months to create each gown. Gowns ordered within the 4 month time frame will only be accepted if we have capacity and will incur a rush fee. If you are in Cape Town you will be asked to come for 2 - 3 fittings, including one to have your measurements taken. Your gown will be made to your exact measurements to ensure a perfect fit. Final payments will be required a week before your gown is collected.
CAN I BUY WITHOUT FITTING?
Purchasing a gown without fitting definitely possible if you are based outside of Cape Town and unable to attend an appointment. We are very well practiced at creating gowns off our clients measurements without fittings.
