I can still affirm that …we were really pleased that we got you to make all the cravats and hairpieces for the wedding party. The colour was perfect and the bespoke creation of the trilliums was very meaningful. It also was very special for us to know that the ethics behind your company were solid. Thank you again so much for being so diligent and communicative throughout the process. [ photo by Dan Fone ] ~ Andrew C.
The dress was marvelous and all that I wanted!~ Isabel T.
Thank you for the necktie and pocketsquare! It was great to see all the details i had put together from different organic/handmade stores i found on the internet come together. The florist hadn’t even seen the tie (but i probably said it was purple).~ Malin L.
I avoid one-use items, synthetic items, and mass-produced items…I searched for the perfect vintage dress for months. None of them were just right.
Lori came to the rescue with a dress that not only fit me perfectly, it can be shortened and reused for many years. The cut is unique and beautiful and the weight is just right. Lori’s dresses really are the best!~ Michelle G.
Dear Lori, the dress looks fabulous! I am very glad that I can support your business. This is such a wonderful project! Richard and I try to make a point of supporting small businesses run by committed people with great ideas!~ Gundela
Thank you so much for everything. I had a lot of fun and the dress looks amazing! I’m so excited for everyone to see it!! Really, I couldn’t be happier with the final result and it was such a joy to work with you!!~ Yay! Renee
Danielle and I needed dresses that complimented each other, but also complimented our very different body types and personalities. Lori walked us through designing the dresses, and she made wonderful suggestions that improved the design, and she was endlessly patient as I waffled over color. Coming up to the wedding, Danielle and I debated over whether or not to walk down the aisle together – but when I saw Danielle in her dress at the final fitting, I knew she needed that moment in the spotlight alone, because she was so beautiful I could hardly breathe.~ Love, Carolyn
The wedding went really, really well! We got a lot of “best wedding ever” compliments, the weather held out, there was no family drama – what more can you ask for? Everyone LOVED the dress, as did I. Even my dad’s girlfriend who only buys designer everything was very complimentary of the dress. She said she could tell that it was made just for me since it fit me so perfectly. I can’t thank you enough for the work you did on the dress! It was perfect 🙂 Yay!!!~ Sara
I’ll just mention that the dress was completely dancing-proof: Laura was on the dance floor from first to last dances (Especially For you & Bring Me Sunshine) and danced with unencumbered enthusiasm. It was awesome.~ Best, Pete
Hi Lori, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful wedding dress. You did such a great job with it! It is gorgeous! The wedding went really well, no problems at all. Everyone loved the dress, but most importantly, I did. 🙂 I think that the fact that I was so happy with the dress made my day much better. I really appreciate all your help, your patience with me, and that you provided me with meaningful and useful consultations! I will highly recommend you to any future bride.~ Ana
Just to summarize it: the wedding was AMAZING!!! And everybody was completely crazy about the gown!!!! I can only repeat that I think it was the best decision I could have made to contact you! I cannot imagine any other way that would have been as perfect as this. I wish that all brides could experience their gown in progress, perfectly fitted and with a personal touch. THANKS SO MUCH for this experience, Lori!!!~ Jenny
Dear Lori, the dress that you made is perfect in every way. I loved wearing it for my wedding! I felt beautiful in my beautiful dress. It was perfect and just what I wanted in every way! I wouldn’t change a thing about it and am the happiest girl!!!~ Love, Emily
From the moment we met her we knew Lori was going to make our dresses. She did a wonderful job not only with the dresses, but also making us feel comfortable and assured along the process. From her eco-friendly material to her contagious enthusiasm, it was a real pleasure working with Lori.~ Jess and Emma
Dear Lori – I can’t thank you all enough for making my beautiful wedding dress for me. At the time you first offered, I was at my wit’s end trying to find something in bridal stores, department stores, or on the web that even remotely fit me and looked appropriate. I’d spent hours and then given up in tears…what you created was even more than I’d hoped for! The dress is absolutely beautiful. You made something exactly right for me, and thanks to you I felt beautiful on my wedding day. I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into the dress…all the chances you gave me to see it in progress…you really have a gift, to take bolts of fabric and turn them into something beautiful. I’m so grateful, and I love my dress so much. I want to get married again and again so I can keep wearing it! Thank you thank you thank you!~ Karen
Dear Lori, The dress is absolutely gorgeous! I cant wait to wear it!! I have only just received it and tried it on. The fabric is amazing, the cut is perfect, the waist is perfect, the neckline is also perfect. I am so happy. Thank you so so much. Your work has been amazing.Much Love, ~ Caro
Dear Lori, Finally I’m taking the time to write! I wanted to thank you again for making my wedding dress which was a real success with relatives & friends but first of all to me and my husband to be. When we had our first chat about wedding dresses, I was more looking for tips and advice. But you rising to the challenge was a real life saver as all my forays into wedding or non-wedding shops had been quite a disaster. I had my mind set on a certain shade and shape which was nowhere to be found. So when I first came to your workshop and saw the fabric you were going to use I was ecstatic as it was exactly the colour I had in mind, besides the feel of the hemp/silk satin was lovely and really easy to wear all day. I must say I felt privileged to be handled by such skillful hands. Nowadays everything is far too perfunctory hence sometimes losing the quality and service. My experience with you was so not the case. I really felt the centre of attention and that you did your utmost to make me feel confident, sexy and happy. On a more practical note, my dress has now been machine-washed and pressed and is as good as new. I’m really delighted with this as it means this little work of art will not be forgotten and gather dust in a closet. I will wear it again soon knowing that it has been made especially for me and it now has all the memories of a fabulous day associated with it as the pictures display. Thanks again and looking forward to seeing all your new creations ! PS – My mum said she’s happy to be pictured on a website that promotes lovely dresses, especially by the woman who made her only girl look amazing !!!~ Bises, Stephanie
The dress is beautiful, I’ve tried it on and it fits splendidly. I almost started crying when I saw the pictures. The dress is so beautiful! I love the roses and think that there is just enough! The dress looks really wonderful! I’m so happy with the result!~ Jen
Our Ethical Pledge
The silk we use in our designs is either new hempsilk or reclaimed silk fabrics, repurposed from unwanted dresses which would have eventually ended up in a landfill. We believe that by giving pre-loved dresses a new life and extending their usefulness, we not only honor the initial sacrifice of the silkworms but we honor the laborers who wove the original fabric. We do this by reclaiming and re-using a resource that would otherwise be wasted.
