Fashion designer with a heart \ Creating handmade gowns in Melbourne to donate profits to children's charities in Vietnam.

Andy Truong is a social enterprise fashion label, ethically designing innovative wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses and evening-wear in Collingwood. 

With every sale, we make donations to charities in Vietnam looking after orphans and impoverished rural communities. We strive to transform a materialistic and notoriously unsympathetic industry into one that is more benevolent and humanitarian.

  • For the ultra modern, avant-garde bride
  • Gowns that are nothing of the ordinary
  • A look that is completely nouveau and creative
  • But at the core is still romantic, feminine and flattering

We offer:

  • Bespoke Bridal (custom designed gowns)
  • Made-to-Measure (to your size in an off-the-rack look)
  • Off-the-Rack (buy as is - free hem alterations!)
  • Earrings, bangles, necklaces & wedding rings from local jewellery designers
  • Traditional Vietnamese wedding dress, the áo dài. 

We collaborate with Melbourne artists and textile designers to create the most unique fabrics. All handmade in Collingwood, our designs are fitted and moulded to the body, highlighting the sexy womanly figure. With six years of dressmaking experience, our talents are in lace appliqué, hand beading & embroidery, fabric prints and manipulations and tailor-make pattern designs.

You can visit us at our boutique-atelier in Collingwood or order online, with free shipping, from our website!

What design service is best for me?

We offer three design services: Off-the-rack, Made-to-measure & Bespoke Bridal.

Off-the-rack is for everyone. If you see a design you love hanging on the rack in our boutique and you fit, then take it! (Before it walks out the door with someone else!)

Made-to-measure is for someone who loves a design on the rack, but would like it made to fit her measurements specifically. She may have broader shoulders, or longer arms and would like her sleves lengthened and shoulders wider so she requests that her design be made to fit her which can be done at no extra cost.

Then there's Bespoke Bridal which is for the one who either knows exactly what she wants or is indecisive and needs help to envisage her wedding dress. In the Bespoke Bridal experience, the bride and designer has a design consultation where we discuss design ideas. Then to help her envisage her look, we make and present "mock" gowns, where she tries them on and has a look and feel to help her choose the final design. We then discuss fabrics and colours through swatches and examples and the chosen dress begins coming to life. Through a series of fittings and alterations, the bride has a say in every step of the design and can change or add to her design accordingly to her ideas and tastes. 

How much does a dress cost?

The price of a dress varies according to design. Their value depends on the fabric and time to create the design.

Average wedding dresses range between $1,000-3,000. To have an image of what the prices look like, a minimal & lightweight wedding dress starts at $800 yet opulent & extravagnt wedding dress can be $6,000. 

Short to mid length cocktail dresses for bridesmaids or wedding guests cost about $300-500

Long evening dresses for bridesmaids or wedding guests cost about $450-800

How long does it take to have a dress made, and how far in advance should I order?

We hand make all our dresses in house in our studio in Collingwood. We have a dedicated design team working around the clock to deliver high quality designs in a decent turnaround. 

Like express shipping, we have made dresses overnight and delivered the next day. However, it is not advised for you to do that!

A good time to order a Bespoke wedding dress is about 4-6 weeks. The more advance in time we have, the better as this allows us to source really beautiful and quality materials from suppliers. With Made-to-Measure, your order can be finished in 2-3 weeks. 

I am a gay man getting married but I don't want to wear a suit. Can you design something personalised for me?

Yes! As a gay man myself, I understand how some grooms getting married may want something more custom and personal than a typical suit. With our Bespoke Bridal service, we can design an outfit completely to your idenity and tastes using the most unique fabric and materials to create your dream wedding look. The creative freedom is endless.

You are a Vietnamese designer, can you create an áo dài?

Yes I can! Personally, I love reinterpreting the national Vietnamese costume into an modern and stylish look - playing around withmodern cuts, silhouette, unique fabrications, prints and embroidery. 

However I am capable of also desinging the áo dài in a traditonal design and methods.

I spent months searching online and in stores for a wedding dress that was unique yet timeless, and well made but not extortionate. Then I stumbled across an Andy Truong design that took my breath away. (With the help of many frequent flyer points) I travelled from Brisbane to Melbourne to have it customised, by hand, for my size and shape. Andy was fantastic throughout the entire process, from sourcing fabric samples to solving logistical issues and even making a matching bag for me. I was so happy with my dress, and even happier to support a talented young Australian designer.

Bought an absolutely lovely white, elegant dress from Andy. Fitted perfectly with minimal alterations and he was great to work with!
