Creating your gown
Couture gowns are made for one person – you. So it's not just made to your measurements at Mark Holt Bridal. It's made to your body, suiting you style, in true haute couture fashion.
Gowns are carefully hand made and require 5 to 6 fittings to make sure the fit is exact.
Commencing with a pattern of your gown, the mock up is molded to your precise shape at your first fitting. Subsequent fittings focus on corsetry and bust support making sure the silhouette is 'perfect'. The final fittings are the 'pretty' fittings where the gown is in fabric and embellishment detail and accessories are addressed.
It's a fun and exciting experience watching your gown evolve and being able to be involved in each stage of the process. Fittings are conducted at the salon with your dressmaker and designer in attendance ensuring perfect fit and attention to detail. Penny prefers from 6 to 8 months notice to ensure ample time for the making of each hand crafted gown.
