Custom Bridal Couture, Special Occasion Dresses, Alterations

Couture \kü-'tu̇r, -'tuer\ is the art and business of designing making, and selling of highly stylish and fashionable clothing for women.

Christine Anne COUTURE specializes in custom gowns that are beautiful, made of the finest fabrics, perfectly fitted and hand crafted with extraordinary attention to detail.

Consult with Designer Christine Hirsch to create a custom gown of your dreams. All gowns are made to measure and clients may select from a wide variety of fabrics, colors and patterns. Christine works one-on-one with clients.  Free consultations are available. Clients can feel good about patronizing a local business that strives for social and environmental responsibility. All gowns are constructed in the designer’s workroom and silk is the preferred fabric for not only its beauty and luxurious appearance, but also because it is eco-friendlier than synthetic fibers.

Please schedule your first fitting for your bridal gown 2 -3 months prior to your wedding, 6-8 weeks for the Bridal Party and Mothers.  Please bring the undergarments and shoes you plan to wear the day of the wedding to all your fitting appointments to insure alterations are done accurately. You will be pleased with the results: a gown that is tailored and fitted to your body. The beautiful silhouette achieved from professional alterations will take you and your gown from beautiful to breathtaking on your special day.

Every Bride has a vision of what she will look like on her wedding day, and the one accessory that defines a bride is her veil.
