Making each of the Stewart Parvin collections, couture womenswear and designer bridalwear, in London has distinct advantages. Not only does our designer bridalwear collection benefit from the option for brides to completely customise any of Stewarts original wedding dress designs to something completely bespoke, but we can work with clients on an entirely couture basis, meaning that their wedding gown is a complete one off.
Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of your wedding dress a very particular style, maybe you’ve been looking in a few London bridal boutiques and can’t find anything that matches up to your expectations, or maybe you want to put yourself entirely in the hands of a bridal designer, and get the best possible advice available to you on the perfect bridal gown for you. Whatever your reasons, choosing to have a couture bridal gown designed and made for you, is an experience that you will never forget. The process begins with an appointment with our bridal boutique manager at our showroom on Beauchamp Place for an initial consultation – you will try on a few shapes and fabrics, to see what works well for you, and to help you think about what you like, and don’t like!
Stewart will be briefed on your wedding, and initial appointment and you will be invited in to meet him, and discuss your ideas for your wedding gown further. He will draw some designs of couture wedding gowns for you as you sit with him, and can incorporate your requirements into his designs as appropriate. He also may ask you to try on further shapes, so he can see what works well for you.
Our couture bridal gown service could also include our team sourcing a particular fabric from our mills in Italy or France, commissioning our embroiderers to produce some swatches for you to approve the embellishment on your gown, or our pattern cutters working on a brand new silhouette of wedding gown for you – the sky really is the limit.
Stewarts couture wedding gown designs are beautifully understated, and endlessly elegant – and so the fit of the gown is of absolute importance, and as such you will have several calico fittings prior to us starting to make your wedding gown in the fabric you have selected. Stewart will attend as many of your fittings as is necessary to achieve absolute perfection of fit and finish. Don’t be surprised if your gown is made in stages, we will fit calicos initially, then the basic shape of the gown, in order to absolutely perfect the silhouette and ensure your complete happiness with it, before moving onto add the finishing touches.
The couture bridal gown service is available from our London bridal boutique at 17 Beauchamp Place, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
