BESPOKE AT VICTORIA SANDERS
HOW IT WORKS
STEP BY STEP BESPOKE
It all starts with an initial meeting, this can now be digitally via video conference, in our London studio or Victoria can come to you if you live within 1.5 hrs of London.
During this meeting Victoria will get to know you and understand what would make your dream dress. You may try existing Victoria Sanders studio styles on, share photos of dresses you have previously tried on or discuss styles you love elements of that you have seen in magazines, online etc. Also it is very useful to share a mood board or Pinterest board, the more information you can give Victoria the better.
Victoria will then go off and sketch up design ideas or if your design is quite clear, a final sketch of your dress silhouette you have discussed. You will them meet with Victoria again either digitally or face to face and refine the final design to ensure it is perfect. You will then receive a final sketch of your design via email.
Now that the dress shape is clear, she will then take your measurements and you will discuss the decoration of the dress; whether you want embroidery, embellishment, print etc.
Next she will work on your embroidery artworks if you are having embroidery. Embroideries are usually inspired by your Bridal bouquet so it would be useful to have images or a pinterest board of your wedding flowers. You will pick out thread colours with Victoria so the colour palette is perfect for your wedding. Once you have discussed she will draw and paint her embroidery ides. You will then receive another presentation with all the artworks she proposes.
Once you have received the embroidery design booklet you will have another meeting or Zoom call to refine and make sure you are completely happy.
If you are going with an existing Victoria Sanders shape, she may not think a toile is necessary, but if your design is quite different from anything else she will make a toile. This is a sample shape of the dress, made in a cheap fabric but made to your measurements to ensure the fit is good and so that you can visualise the end result.
Victoria will then meet with you again for your first toile fitting. Here she will make sure it fits, that you are happy with the shape and if need be discuss any changes.
Victoria will then make any changes to your toile if needed before your second toile fitting. Hopefully now it should be fitting perfectly, however if you need any further fit sessions that is no problem. At this point you will choose fabrics with Victoria, she will show you an extensive range of luxurious qualities that you can choose from. She will advise what would be most suited to your design and budget.
Victoria will then move on to making your final dress and embroideries. She will send images to you of the embroideries as she goes to ensure you love the way they look.
Once the dress is ready you will have a final fit session (approx 2-3 months before the wedding) she will then make any final tweaks if need be.
Approx 2-3 weeks after that she will meet you for an embroidery pin session. Here she will pin on every embroidery the studio has created whilst you are wearing the perfectly fitted final dress. Doing it this way ensures the placement is perfect. She will then hand sew on each embroidery piece to your bespoke creation, so you have the dress in hand within plenty of time of your wedding.
A Victoria Sanders dress is a true labour of love. She really does love her craft; the quality and finish is second to none. Each dress is a piece if art and something very special that you will cherish forever.
