"Just before my father past away 12 years ago, he sat me down knowing that he would not be on this mortal plain to walk me down the isle in person when the time came. He pulled his napkin closer and started drawing the 2 part wedding dress that he thought his little girl should get married in. Over the ensuing 12 years I unfortunately misplace the napkin but it's essence has always stayed with me. When I met Desirée, I knew that she would be the one to bring my daddy's sketch to life and let him walk me down the isle in spirit. 
Working with Desirée was an absolute pleasure, she was able to take all my memories and turn them into my perfect wedding dress. Desirée is everything you could want from a designer, she is calm, professional and works her magic with cloth and thread. I would highly recommend Desirée to anyone wanting to create an extra special outfit for any occasion."


“I would highly recommend Desirée’s couture service. The little jacket she created for my winter wedding was exactly what I had pictured.

Amidst pre-wedding fever, Desirée was calm and paid great attention to detail - I knew I was in very good hands. She went above and beyond, even attending my first dress fitting to ensure the measurements for the jacket were just right.

The finished thing was worth every penny and knocked the spots off anything available to buy off the peg. Not that you could even compare....”


"Working with Desirée was an amazing experience.  It is totally unique to work directly with a true couture designer.  She is very talented - both in terms of design and in her dressmaking craft.  Her ideas were lovely, her designs were completely magical, and the care she took making the piece was amazing.

 My mother, mother-in-law and bridesmaids who came along to various fittings were astounded at the intricacy of the process and the hours that went into it.  The whole creative process was fun, and I think there is no where else you go get such one-to-one attention.
She created my perfect dress, and I felt amazing on the day because I was wearing a complete one-off that was created just for me.  I could not have been happier."



"I have never had a dream wedding dress in my mind, and being 5ft 10 and size 14-16 I was not typical bridal boutique material. Between a busy job and not having a clue what suited me I was getting no where finding a wedding dress for my special day.

I contacted Desirée for help and her calm, helpful, expert approach immediately put me at ease.

The process of designing and developing my dress become enjoyable, and I only wish I had contacted her much sooner.

I am thrilled with the finished result and the quality is utterly breath taking."
