Couture Bridal Gown Collection
Designer Peter De Petra offers personal service to all brides at each appointment. Peter encourages brides to bring along their ideas and inspirations to their appointment as all gowns are personally handcrafted for each individual. Using only the most luxurious fabrics and embellishments sourced from all over the world, each bridal gown in the collection is classical and elegant. All designs are made to your measurements and can be personalized. The gowns are made in the onsite workroom by an experienced team overseen by Peter to ensure the quality and craftsmanship he is known for.Each gown is fitted by Peter who will give you advice at each step that only technical expertise can deliver. The process begins with measurements being taken so an individual pattern can be made. This is followed by a toile fitting (a calico version of the gown), which gives an opportunity to refine the design and perfect the fit before cutting the fabric. The fabric fittings follow where any embellishments are applied to ensure correct placement and any final alterations are done.
One off Bridal Gown Design
For brides that want something truly individual, Peter can work with you to develop an original bridal gown design incorporating any ideas you may have. After gaining an understanding of your body shape and any likes and dislikes, Peter will prepare a sketch. At this stage, Peter will source the fabrics and any embelishments exclusively. A toile is made and fitted to ensure the silhouette and fit is perfect. Modifications and adjustments can be made at this stage in consultation with you. Peter will then commence to cut your gown in fabric, and through a series of fittings the gown is brought to life; an experience that is truly Haute Couture.
All Bridal gowns can be complemented by our in house range of accessories including Veils, stoles, shrugs, jackets, hair pieces, and jewelry. Peter will advise on accessories at the fittings ensuring a perfectly styled look on your day.
Consultations are by appointment only as Peter meets personally with each bride. At this appointment Peter will take you through the collection of Bridal gowns and give you expert advice regarding cut, color, silhouette and design. Consultations are free and without obligation. For brides that have an idea of the style they have in mind, bring along any inspirations you may have and Peter can design a gown for you.
Our Team Profiles
Peter De PetraPosition
Designer Peter De Petra’s philosophy is simple: to create couture bridal gowns that are not only beautiful to look at but come with exceptional service, value and quality craftsmanship.
Peter started his business nearly 20 years ago, seeing a gap in the market for classical elegant bridal gowns that stand the test of time. These signature design elements are evident in each gown he designs; his collection encompasses an array of styles: opulent ball gowns, vintage pieces, and floaty romantic creations.
With his years of experience in handcrafted Bridal gowns, Peter has perfected the art of couture.
He has taken traditional couture techniques and modified them to create his own method for shaping and fitting gowns. This ensures each dress moulds, shapes and flatters the body.
Peter provides a personal service to each bride from the initial consultation to the completed gown. His attention to detail and dedication to excellence guarantees you will receive the gown of your dreams.
