I just had my wedding 26th September 2011 and had my dress made at Oglia Loro Haute Couture by the fabulously talented and humble Sam, his work is amazing a total standout compared to anyone in the industry.
Not only did he make my wedding dress exactly as to what I wanted it to be, but he put a “lot more” work into my dress compared to his sample, I had a lot of beading, lace and crystals he made it work so well. I couldn’t have even imagined the dress to be more amazing then it was,
I asked a lot of people in the wedding/dressmaking industry what they thought of Sam’s work and all the feedback was 100% positive. He was described by someone as the ‘Prince of DressMaking” lol and another person rated him within the Top 5 designers and dressmakers in Australia.
I went to the main wedding couture boutiques like Connie Simonetti, Judith Valentine, J’Aton (too pricey $22k), Shane McConnell, Crocé & Colosimo, Toni Maticevski, Jason Grech and even popped into Steven Kahlil in Sydney. I really did my homework and the best decision I made was going with Oglia Loro.
He started my dress 6 weeks prior to the wedding and I collected it 4 days before the wedding… Perfect! It fit like a glove.
I hoped this helps.
