Modehaus dresses are designed to enhance the beauty of the wearer. Our bride is already beautiful. She doesn't need to transform, her beauty is only intensified when she is feeling her happiest and most self confident. Like all strong and busy women, our gowns capture brides in motion. Like her, our gowns are not ornamental. They are designed to be worn and move as she moves. They are hand made for the bold and exceptional woman for the many pivotal days in her life. And unlike other dresses, and moments, this one was made just for her.
The initial consultation is all about getting to know you. Your personality, your style, fabrics you love, and trends you are drawn to. During this appointment we’ll look over images, brainstorm ideas, and discern your vision. I’ll create sketches, take measurements, discuss pricing, and finalize our timeline.
I start with draping a muslin dress pattern and make it fit perfectly to your body. This mock up helps us both visualize what my sketch will look like in reality. After everything is fitted, I construct your dress in your chosen fabrics. I add hand sewn details and finishing touches. Once the gown is complete, I’ll be wishing you all the best on your big day as you take your dress home.
