Our boutique offers variety of services to support you on your path to perfect wedding.

Made to order

We carry a variety of made to order dresses from our partners - European and Northern-American designers. All dresses can be tailored and altered for the perfect fit. We include a styling consultation and provide everything to choose your perfect look! Our in-store collections get updated regularly, so do stay in-touch.

Custom Gown Design

The process of creating a custom gown takes at least three fittings in order to get the perfect fit. We start with a design of your dress in muslin, which helps ensure the design is perfect on your unique body. Then we move on to creating your dress.

Alterations

At the first fitting, we pin the gown around your body with proper undergarments and have you wear shoes that you will wear on the day of your wedding. At the second fitting, you will try on your dress, and if everything is to your liking, you can take the dress home that day. If some small adjustments are necessary, we’ll schedule a third fitting of your gown.

Styling

We offer styling services to help you choose proper undergarments, as well as accessories like veils, shoes and jewelry. Our alteration and steaming expert will you the wedding day to help add final touches, including any last minute alterations if necessary.

About

Our talented team of bridal professionals utilizes traditional and cutting edge technologies to create one of a kind gown that is almost entirely handmade. Our design specialist will meet you in our newly designed boutique to help decide which fabrics and styles inspire you. Using the best materials from around the world, we will lovingly create your gown like a piece of fine art.

After final fitting, we will present you with your finished masterpiece. In addition to custom gown creation, we also offer expert alterations and steam pressing services that come to you the day of your wedding. Another service we offer is personal styling, including help with picking the proper undergarments for your dress and choosing accessories like veils, shoes, and jewelry. From initial fitting and design to each little hand-stitched seam, our team can produce your unique couture gown right here in downtown Berkeley.

When we craft your custom bridal gown, we want to reflect your unique sense of style. The process often takes three months to complete. During the initial consultation, you will meet with one of our designers to discuss fabrics and styles. We will present you with an estimate to craft your gown and require a 50% deposit. Next, we create up to three sketches of your gown. Then we will select the best fabrics to suit your chosen design. We can do this step together in the garment district. The next step is the initial fitting when we will make a first draft pattern of your dress in muslin, a plain cotton fabric. This will help us perfect the fit and design of your gown. After this step, we will create your dress. At this point, details like hems and tucks will be addressed. After this, another fitting is required to make final touches. At the end of this creation process, full payment is due, and we will present you with your final gown, packaged in a garment bag and ready for you big day. Custom wedding gowns designed and created by Lili Safarini start at $2,800, plus the cost of fabric.
