BESPOKE BRIDAL

Custom, original and unique

BESPOKE & CUSTOM BRIDAL

Custom and bespoke are gowns that are individually designed and developed

At Guipurean, we specialise in Bespoke and custom, in fact, this is what we create most days and have done so for many years.

We strongly believe in brides wearing a gown that assimilate with their personality, so we are proud to offer Custom and a Bespoke options in addition to our made to measure.

 

So what is the difference?

All our gowns from the sample range are currently purchased as made to measure, we take a bride’s measurements and create the gown to her size and proportion with a calico test fit included.

A custom is a gown taken from the sample range and modified to suit the bride’s preference, this includes mix and match of necklines, laces and skirt shapes, with options to add additional embroidery or lace features.

A bespoke is a gown that is designed from scratch, created and developed to be distinctly yours, unique & original, one of a kind.

PROCESS OF BESPOKE AND CUSTOM

Bespoke gowns require approx. 8 -10 months development time from start to finish, depending on the detailed required including – custom embroideries, special order laces, applique or complicated constructions that will require several toiles and intensive patternmaking.

All bespoke gowns follow a process of:

  • Design development and refinement
  • Prototyping the gown its, fit and design lines, this sometimes involves 2-3 calico trials.
  • Alterations and refining of fit, proportion and design
  • Discussion of fabrications and final selection
  • Finalising the design, fit and proportion
  • Gown construction and development, with several fittings
  • 4-6 fittings until the gown is completed

 

This is a quick guide and subject to the complexity of the design and can include up to 6 -8 fittings. Click here to read more
