All gowns are designed, fitted and finished by Jamie Richards, who following studying fashion design, has 14 years’ experience in London as a garment technician across premium and luxury fashion brands which is utilized to create a heavenly fitting gown. A gown created from the knowledge and experience she has attained through all who have
inspired her and have led her to create a business with craftsmanship and individuality at its heart. Jamie is passionate about beautiful creations and elegant dresses and with each client she ensures that from sketch to finished garment the process is an exciting, inspiring and personal journey.
Jamie, who is originally from a quaint town in New Zealand has always loved clothes, trinkets; special things that make women smile. Growing up it was important for her to seek inspiration not only where she has come from, but from places, cultures, countries and other inspiring people around her. Jamie balances her time between London and New Zealand, which allows her to manage the creation process of each gown whilst ensuring she is up to date with current trends that
can be translated to the vintage aesthetic. The location balance also allows time for clients in both London and New Zealand to ensure she is available in the run up to one of the most important day of every bride’s life.
