Step 1

Inspiration & Vision

We zero in on a style based off of your inspiration photos and vision provided, or we create a whole new innovative look. A rough sketch is created to finalize the style.

Step 2

Body Analysis

Next we book an appointment to take your full body measurement to create a personalized pattern based best suited for your body and style of dress. Here, a full body analysis is completed in order to zero in on your true body shape.

Step 3

Dress Mockup

A mock-up of the dress is created in a muslin fabric, a lower-end garment used for fitting purposes only – this is where we can determine any fitting or styling issues and eliminate any major fitting issues before full production starts.

Step 4

Fabric Selection

Simultaneously, we schedule a fabric research and shopping day for you to select your fabrics for the final dress – or we can take care of this step entirely on our part. If you decide to opt-out of the shopping day, we send pictures or swatches for you to select the final fabric. Once we decide on the perfect fabric, we proceed with full production of your garment.

Final Dress Fitting & Delivery

Lastly, we schedule a dress fitting of the true-fabric dress before the final fitting touches are made, in order to eliminate the need for any major alterations down the road. Once the final touches are completed, it’s time to enjoy your dress, celebrate your body, and have a wonderful time at your event.


“If you’re looking for a professional and creative designer for your wedding dress, I would highly recommend Denise David. After our first meeting to discuss my vision, within a week I had several sketches of different dresses that incorporated the elements I was looking for. Denise was so patient and continued to tweak and alter the dress design until we arrived at our final style. The whole process was exciting and I especially enjoyed meeting to pick out the lace for my dress.


My dress was the talk of my wedding and I felt beautiful wearing it that day. I couldn’t recommend Denise more.

    How long does it take to create a custom garment?

    It depends on the complexity of the garment but it usually takes 3 weeks for smaller projects, and 1 to 2 months for larger projects as long as there are no delays (and it is not during the busy season).

    Do I have to leave a deposit?

    Yes, you have to leave a 50% deposit on the cost of garment to start production. Final payment is to be made once the garment is complete.

    Are fabrics included in prices?

    Fabrics are an additional price and are to be paid in full before final sample production starts.

    Do you have to get your own fabrics?

    We have a few options:


    The first is that you can provide your own fabrics as long as it meets the requirements and quality for the garment, in order to keep the integrity of the style.


    The second option is to schedule a fabric research/shopping appointment to look at fabrics together.


    Alternatively, if you would rather not take part in the research process we can find the proper fabrics, colours and textures needed and present them through either pictures or swatches, and you can select what you like.

    Can you cancel a custom order?

    All custom orders are final sale once production has started.


    Ready-to-wear garments can be returned within 2 weeks of purchase for a full refund. Return shipping costs must be organized and paid by the customer unless there are defects in the product. If there are defects, the customer must email Denise David Collection with a photo of the defective product. Once confirmed, Denise David Collection will return the courier cost once the product has been shipped and received back to the destination.

    What is a mock up fitting?

    A mock up fitting is a pre-fitting of the garment in a lower-end fabric to test run the pattern and to determine if there are any major alterations needed to be addressed before starting production on the desired fabrics. This process is very helpful because it helps with determining proper styling, cuts and fit for the customer’s body shape.

    How long does it take to create wedding/bridal wear?

    Wedding & Bridal: This is a longer, intimate process and the Denise David Collection spends quality time with each of their brides in an efficient way, in order to ensure all steps are made before the wedding date.  


    Process: Involves a one on one consultation.  


    • 3 to 6 detailed sketches of desired wedding dress ideas
    • 4 to 6 monthly breakdown schedule which consist of the fitting dates and fabric research field trips

    All alterations are included within the package.


    A contract is created listing all the details, dates, confidentiality, and policies that ensure both parties are protected during the duration of the custom dress process, and that all conditions and requirements that have been discussed are finalized by the due date. 


    Payments: Customers have the option of making a full payment, or a 50% deposit plus cost of fabric to start production. If selecting the deposit option, final payment is made once the garment is complete.
