Alexandra graduated in fashion and textile design in 2005 and launched her label in 2009 after working at the heart of the vintage clothing market. It was whilst sorting through hundreds of thousands of vintage dresses she learnt what goes into the most beautiful of gowns throughout history. 

Dressing up should be a great experience, and Alexandra's aim is to make you look and feel incredible. As a designer you can put your trust in her expertise and craftsmanship to know what is exactly right for you as an individual. 

As a business owner it is incredibly important that ethics and values of respect for all are upheld from creating the dresses to making the atelier a welcoming and safe space for all. We are proud to design and produce in the little city of Wells, Somerset reaching out to customers all over the world.

Sparkling Wedding Gown
"We went for our initial consultation today for my wedding dress and and bridesmaid dresses. The consultation was amazing, we had a lovely welcome and then talked though all the designs and she did a few sketches of my vision. The whole process was flawless and I'm so excited to see the final designs. Highly recommended if you want that personal touch and truly unique dress."

Dressed to Perfection

"I was first introduced to Alexandra by a friend, and from that first meeting I knew that I wanted her to design and make my wedding, bridesmaid and mother-of-the-bride dress. Alexandra makes you feel special from the moment you enter her beautful little shop and studio in Wells, Somerset. She offers you a truly personal experience, and each time you leave there is always a spring in your step. The process from consultation to completed dress has been a long one because I wanted to get started from the moment I was engaged back in 2016. Each time we have visited the store for a fitting, alteration or meeting we were delighted with the results and it has been magic watching each dress' progress. On saturday 12th May we went to Alexandra's for the last time, where we tried on our beautiful dresses and were treated to a mini photo shoot by Alexandra herself. I can truly say that we felt like royalty. I am so excited for my guests to see Alexandra's wonderful designs and I will absolutely be back to her in the future. If I had to do it all again- I wouldn't do anything differently. It was perfect."

Katie
