5. How does an appointment look like?

Karin will discuss your style and preferences, then guide you through dress options. You might find your "the one" or start co-designing your dream dress.  Read more about the co-design option. Appointments last 1.5 hours.

6. Can I take pictures in the studio?

Once you have purchased your actual gown, you are more than welcome to take pictures. Prior to this point, however, we discourage taking photos as they generally give a false impression of the dress.

7. What sizes are available to try on?

Most of the samples are in size EU 36 to 42. If the sample is too big or too small, we have creative ways to pin and show you how the dress will look like when it is closer to your actual size. Important to understand is that we work with all sizes. So when you say yes to the dress, Karin will take all of your measurements. And her elite team, all with a minimum of 25 years of experience will make the dress precisely by your measurements, to ensure that the dress will fit you like a glove. Because we are so experienced in creating couture custom made wedding dresses, the dress will be made perfectly. In case any adjustments are necessary, they will be free of charge.

8. How many people can I bring to my appointment?

A maximum of 3 guests is recommended to maintain a comfortable and intimate atmosphere. Many brides come solo, so don't hesitate to do the same if preferred.

9. What should I bring to the appointment?

Nude, seamless underwear shows off the dress best. Minimize makeup to avoid staining. Feel free to bring shoes and accessories, but we also have Keren Wolf jewelry and Bella Belle shoes available. 

10. What is the price range of your Dresses?

Collection dresses range from €3,200-€5,000 for clean, sophisticated styles and €3,800-€7,900 for glamorous, lace, and beaded options (most between €3,800-€6,500). Adjustments are always free.
