Peter De Petra works individually with each bride to make their vision a reality.
“Beautiful high quality gowns and happy brides is what I am passionate about; it’s what I strive for every day. It's what makes a good design an amazing gown and a bride radiant.
Brides are welcome to try on gowns from my collection to get a feel for the quality and fit of my gowns, and how different silhouettes work with their figure, as well as the feel of different fabrics.
My role is then to understand their dreams and realize their vision. I interpret this using my knowledge of fabric, cut and construction, to bring the gown to life. Having a vast network of fabric wholesales both here and overseas allows me to access fabrics, laces and trims not available to the general public. This ensures I can achieve the look you are after and make the gown uniquely yours!
In the tradition of true couture craftsmanship you will deal only with me, the designer, personally at all fittings. And here is why. I believe with the complexities of designing a couture gown it takes many years if not decades of experience to get the right balance of fit and design.
I make an individual pattern for each bride; I do not simply alter an existing pattern, and I firmly believe this forms the foundation of a perfectly fitting gown. This is the reason the whole process takes 3-4 fittings instead of 6-8. Getting it right from the start with a custom pattern is the only way I work. The calico toile fitting allows me to refine the fit, perfect the silhouette and neckline, as well as ensuring you, the bride shares the same vision before embarking on the fabric fitting.
All of my gowns have built in corsetry, there is no need for a bra to be worn. This custom corsetry is what will give you that wonderful shapeliness that can only be achieved by a corset made to your measurements.
So future bride to be I hope this has given you an insight into how I am as a designer and what makes me tick as a person. I firmly believe I can provide you with a quality perfectly fitting unique gown that you can look back on with great joy. I am dedicated to my craft and I believe this shows through in my gowns. Working with brides has made an impact on me, how can it not working with people at such a joyous time in their lives. I am looking forward to working with you too!
