About the Bespoke Design Process

  • About Angela Kim Couture

    Angela is a couture dress designer and dressmaker with over 20 years of experience working internationally in the fashion industry.  She brings an expert and professional touch to every project, ensuring that all the details are perfect, using only the highest quality fabrics and embellishments.  All of Angela’s dresses are one-of-a-kind designs, inspired by your vision and story.  You’ll love the look and feel of a custom couture dress, and you’ll cherish the memorable, luxurious experience of working with a professional couturier.

  • How to prepare for your initial consultation

    During your first meeting with Angela, you’ll talk about ideas and concepts for your dress, choose fabrics and select a silhouette.  Bring pictures or examples of what you like, and what you don’t.  If you are coordinating your look with the bride, Angela will help you develop a vision that incorporates your key elements and compliments the bride’s style.  If you’re visiting our atelier, invite the bride to join you and share a memorable moment as you bring your dream dress to life together.

  • Production and turnaround time

    The couture design process normally requires from six to twelve months, depending on a number of factors. The length of your project will vary according to the complexity of the design and the bride’s timeline. Construction time depends on the fabrics and details we’ve selected. If you are visiting our atelier for alterations and fittings, you’ll be able to monitor the evolving design throughout the tailoring process.

  • Fitting sessions

    For our local or visiting brides, there is no extra charge for regular fitting sessions at our Asheville atelier. Fitting sessions are an important and fun part of the construction process as your dress comes to life.  Out-of-town clients will need to have measurements taken by your local seamstress (according to specifications we will provide) .

  • Alterations

    All of Angela’s custom couture dresses are designed according to your measurements. If you are not available to have Angela take your measurements herself, you will need to have your local seamstress take them according to instructions we will provide. When properly measured (and provided that the client does not experience major weight changes), the dress should need few if any alterations. Any further alterations after the dress has been delivered would be up to the client.

  • Pricing for your custom design

    The price of your one-of-a-kind, custom couture design will be determined by a number of factors, including fabric selection and details, the number of fitting sessions, and construction time. Like every client, each project is unique, and Angela will help guide you to the right solution for your needs.  Please contact us for a quote on your project.

  • Other couture designs and bespoke tailoring

    In addition to bridal apparel and mother of the bride dresses, Angela also designs cocktail dresses, evening gowns, and other bespoke clothing.
