The Service: The service is bespoke. Each bride receives a full couture service with fittings including calico or muslin toile which is a mock up of the dress. All fittings are with the designer herself to ensure each dress is cut in the most flattening way possible and fits perfectly. A second toile may be required. The paper pattern will then be altered to incorporate any adjustments made in the toile fitting before the silk is cut. Depending on the style and fabrics chosen, a further three fittings maybe required to ensure highest possible standard of fit and perfection. Kate can also use silk from your dress to create a beautiful headpiece that is sure to turn heads.
