Reviews​

When you get a dress designed it isn’t just about the incredible visual transformation it creates but, the process of couture is a lot deeper & touches you on an emotional level. As a designer, I have been very blessed to receive some amazing reviews about my handcrafted dress designs including many tear inducing moments in my studio.

The thing that drives me everyday is that moment I get to experience the sheer joy & emotion you will experience at your final fitting. It gives me absolute pleasure to be able to impact another person’s life in that way whether I am creating a wedding dress or a stunning evening gown for a family occasion or special event.

“I absolutely love Catherine’s dress design work and quality.”

“I really can’t think of enough good things to say about Catherine, right from our first design session – she was professional, helpful, friendly and most importantly to me – very flexible.”

“Catherine did an amazing job designing my dress – she understood what I wanted and made suggestions along the way to ensure the overall effect was perfect.”

“I have never heard so many lovely compliments about my dress as I did on my wedding night. Thank you again as you did an absolutely amazing job.

I would recommend you to everyone!”

“Can’t thank Catherine enough for designing and making my wedding the magical day it was.

I was hesitant at first about a couture wedding gown, but after meeting Catherine I felt extremely lucky and blessed to have met such a kind, giving and creative person. The whole experience with Catherine was my favourite part of my wedding journey.

I couldn’t have asked for a more suitable dress designer for the job. She made my bridal gown, mother of bride, 5 bridesmaids and flower girl dresses, each with immaculate attention to detail.

Her patience and intuitive nature into knowing exactly what I was feeling and looking for is a unique and masterful talent and I feel grateful for having crossed paths with her.”

I would recommend you to everyone!”

“Just wanted to send you a massive thank you for designing my amazing dress! The wedding was so much fun and all went very smoothly.”

“I had a number of people come up and tell me that it was the best wedding dress design they had ever seen! So that was lovely to hear. I couldn’t wait to put my dress on the day and felt wonderful in it the whole time. It was perfect.

Thank you so much for all of the time and effort you and your team put in to making my dress. It was even better than I had envisaged. I only wish I could wear it more than once.

Thank you so much for making the process so much fun!”

“My mum and I went to see Catherine to design my couture wedding gown. At first I was apprehensive on getting a dress made but my mum already had a few dresses made by Catherine for my brothers weddings and they were amazing!
When I met beautiful Catherine I felt so comfortable and blessed that I had met her when I did.

Catherine is extremely professional, kind and patient. She was able to help me envision the master piece that she created for my wedding day from the time I met her. Catherine created the most beautiful dresses for my bridesmaids, flower girls, my mum & I. Everyone was blown away how amazing it all looked. The work & detail was second to none.

Since my wedding we haven’t stopped getting so many compliments. All thanks to the one and only Catherine!
I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone who is looking for a gown or all occasion outfits to be made. My mum and I will defiantly be using her in the future to make more amazing pieces!

By the end of the our journey Catherine become family to us and both my mum and I was so sad that our regular fittings was coming to an end.

Thank you so much again Catherine”

“Catherine, after just spending a few minutes with you I was certain you were the right person to make the wedding dress of my dreams!

You made it such a fun experience selecting all the components to make both mine and my bridesmaids’ dresses and by the end I considered you such an important part of my whole wedding planning experience as well as a dear friend.

You were always such a pleasure to deal with and were always at the ready to turn our combined ideas into reality! You also always had a brilliant plan to turn a simple idea into a one-of-a-kind design. What transpired was the most breathtaking dress that I cant help but be amazed every time I look at the photos. A true showstopper!

Thank you so much for understanding what it was that I wanted to capture from the day. Without you it just wouldn’t have worked so well. I’m still receiving compliments on just how beautiful my dress was and will certainly recommend you for any future brides!

Very happy bride!”

“Catherine is the best designer in the business. Buying a wedding dress/having a wedding dress made can be such a daunting experience for brides, Catherine not only makes beautiful wedding gowns (well I had a pant suit) but also makes her brides feel so comfortable. 

I barely had to describe what I wanted from my wedding pant suit and she had already hand drawn some design ideas that were exactly what I wanted, with some of her great additional styling touches. 

Every fitting with Catherine was fun, my girlfriends and I really miss spending Saturdays at Catherine’s design studio. I can not wait to work with Catherine again.”

“My mum and I went to see Catherine to design a couple of gowns for us for my brother wedding. At first I was apprehensive on getting a dress made from scratch but my fears quickly disappeared when I met this amazing woman.

Catherine is extremely professional, kind and patient. She was able to help me envision the master piece she created for me from early on. By the end of the design process I was actually sad that our journey together was coming to an end.

Catherine created two beautiful gowns for mum and I and everyone was blown away at how gorgeous we both looked. The dresses fit so well and the workmanship was second to none. We both got so many compliments and we only have Catherine to thank for that! I can truely say she made me feel like a princess, beautiful and confident!

I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone who is seeking to make a gown and I will be definitely be using her in the future to make more amazing pieces!”

“Anytime I need an elegant dress made I always go to Catherine. From the dress I wore to my daughter’s wedding, to her kitchen tea along with other weddings and occasions. I know I can always rely on Catherine to make an elegant, high quality dress. Love wearing them and receiving compliments.”
