Vanda Outh’s custom-made wedding dresses are a unique blend of 20th century fashions, styled for today. A poetic interpretation of embroidery and chiffon, expressed in delicate colours and playful transparencies, they are both pleasant and romantic.
Vanda Outh also suggests reworking your mother’s bridal dress; while respecting its original form she will breathe life into your treasured, vintage garment and create an original, hand-sewn piece. Her attention to detail, in harmony with the materials and colours, draws inspiration from her numerous journeys abroad : Cambodia – a country especially close to her heart – gifted her with a wealth of tradition and ceremony ; Morocco, a kingdom of colours, taught her the savoir-faire of embroidery and precious, painted fabric ; Canada and the Amerindian culture, rooted in landscapes seemingly frozen in time, expanded her horizons by virtue of its natural beauty and simplicity.
Every dress is unique and transforms each bride into a flower, ready to bloom in the arm’s of her beloved.
In order to make your dress, there will be three consultations : As we begin the project, we’ll discuss your desires and expectations over a cup of tea. While staying receptive, I’ll guide you in your choices – from inspiration to cuts and materials. Adapting to your wishes (and to your budget) is a top priority; my role is to accompany you on the path to creating the dress of your dreams. Their are various types of dress cuts: voluminous and fluid; close to the body; or a simple cut with a subtle twist. My preferred materials are silk, silk satin, Calais lace, silk tulle …
During our second appointment, we begin the fittings and the alterations with a muslin tailored to your measurements. I’ll adapt the dress to your morphology to make you the belle of the ball! The creation of matching accessories to go along with the dress (veils, hair jewellery, headbands, earrings) is also possible.
Once the garment is finished, we’ll see each other again and review any necessary alterations. With your dress in hand, you’re ready for the big day.
Consultations and fittings are held at artéfact project space.
