The Couture Process
– by Designer Samantha Roach
Arrange your consultation with designer Samantha Roach and we will discuss any ideas for your bridal gown (bridesmaid, prom or evening dress) and the theme or style of your wedding: e.g., traditional, informal, or vintage, etc. This first stage will no doubt be exciting for you and will inspire Samantha to start creating your personalised dress. You can try on the samples of bridal gowns at the boutique to give you a feel of which styles compliment you the most. We have a selection of luxurious fabric samples in silk and lace to help you choose the right fabric for you. Consultation are free and without obligation and will be for one hour. You will also be able to discuss your budget and timescale of your wedding.
Samantha will then work with you to create your personalised design, incorporating all the ideas discussed and your favourite elements from any other bridal gowns you have seen at the boutique. Having placed your order and selected your luxurious fabric choice, trimmings etc., all your measurements will be taken at a second consultation. The service given by Samantha will make you feel confident and the excitement will only continue, knowing that the second stage of your couture dress journey has begun.
At stage three, a ‘calico toile’ is made up. This is a mock-up of the bridal gown made from a stiff cotton fabric, using the measurements taken. At your first fitting this will be fitted to you, before being used to create the pattern for the cutting out of the actual bridal gown fabric. Your bridal gown will then be hand made and fitted to you, several more times during its creation. As these fittings progress your dream dress will gradually take shape, and then, once the all important details have been added, it will be complete. Meanwhile, your bespoke tiara and veil can all be hand crafted to match, and teamed with any jewellery to complete your unique look.
Having your bridal gown created by Samantha Roach Bridal couture, will be the experience of your life and you will not forget it. From the moment you step through the boutique door and on through the various fittings, you will feel like a valuable treasure soon to be displayed.
