Part 1: GETTING TO KNOW YOU

After your initial enquiry you'll be invited to come and meet the designer, so we can get to know you, understand your vision for your occasion and your sense of style.

You will be invited to try on pieces from our collection so that we can understand and advise on what colours, concepts and styles suit your body shape.

For overseas clients that are unable to visit us the same consultation takes place over skype and we ask you to send us photos of yourself in different outfits and palettes so we can understand

Part 2: GETTING CREATIVE

The next step is a design session to narrow down ideas and concepts. Think of this as a creatively structured brainstorming session with a talented designer including imagery, fabrics, style ideas and lots of fun and laughter.

Different design concepts for your chosen outfits will be considered, along with suggestions on fabric and embroideries, working on rough sketches and styles capturing detailed requirements along with measurements.

If you are based abroad we will conduct the same session over skype and guide you on how a local tailor should take your measurements.

Part 3: Order Confirmation & Deposit

Following our initial consultation and design meeting, you will be provided with a detailed summary of your proposed outfit with details of fabric, colours and chosen embroideries and a quote. Once you have agreed to proceed a 50% deposit will be requested, for work to commence. Overseas clients can make this payment via paypal, over the phone with their credit card or via International bank transfer.

Part 4: DEVELOPING A PRODUCT SAMPLE

Upon confirmation of your order a final design sketch is created with any amendments to the original concept that have been agreed and a sample of the fabric and embroidery is created for approval. We try to give you at least two options to compare and you can then keep the embroidery sample to coordinate colours for other aspects of your wedding theme.

Part 5: THE MAGIC UNFOLDS

Once your design sample and final sketch have been approved, your order is put into production under the expert care of our artisan tailors, closely supervised by Mani herself.

Part 6: YOUR DREAM OUTFIT IS READY

Once your outfit is complete it will be checked meticulously, in our workshop in India and upon arrival in our design studio in London before we invite you in for that moment you've been waiting for - a fitting. During the fitting we will ensure that garment fits you to the specifics in order, and make recommendations on styling and makeup.

If our clients are based overseas, we will send you a video of the garment for your approval before we send it to your via courier.
