"My dream has always been to create elegant & beautiful dresses"

Meet Catherine Colubriale the Designer

Have you ever felt a deep
sense of connection with something? 
This has been me all my life, my dream to create elegant and beautiful dresses and garments that allows a woman’s imagination to run free and give her the opportunity to express herself and personal style. Every single one of us has a uniqueness that compares to no one else. My passion is to help you explore yours through my love for creative fashion dresses.

Ever had that feeling you get when all time stops and you are fully entranced in what you are doing?
From the age of 5 all I wanted to do was play and create using my mum’s dressmaking tools and fabrics. My long days seemed like minutes when my mother asked me to stop playing. It felt like the world stopped. From then on I don’t ever remember not wanting to play and create even when I was faced with life’s challenges.

This was the one place a could escape to and feel a sense of safety and calmness, a career my mother  didn’t encourage due to it’s labour intensity, she always said  to “create something beautiful you have to be dedicated and love what you are doing” I knew there was no shortcuts in creating beautiful masterpieces.


Have you experienced blissful
happiness through your entire body?
How do you explain the feeling of blissfulness, intensity and love for what you do? When I create I am in a headspace that allows no one to enter. This is where I feel most free and I know my soul is totally content. I avoid phones, emails and messages when I’m in my zone. 

With over 30 years of experience, Catherine is a leading Australian couturier in Sydney specialising in custom made bridal and evening gowns for women who want to feel amazing.

“Things never happen on accident. They happen because you have a vision, you have a commitment, you have a dream.”
