Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Do customers need to know exactly what style they want before meeting with a dressmaker, and do they need to provide a pattern?

Not at all – the dressmakers' experience makes them an excellent source for suggestions. Customers only need have a basic idea of what they are after, (which is worked out with d'Italia's consultants) as the dressmakers' studios have many fashion books and pictures to help fine-tune their ideas, plus they all store images of past creations on their computers. It is usual for them to work off the design sketches from d'Italia, and then in the process of fittings, the design is fine tuned on the body. The dressmakers make their own patterns, regardless of whether they are making something from a sketch, from a photo or copying an existing garment - so it is completely unnecessary to take patterns to them.

A design is often best left to develop on the body, which is actually what couture is. It is easy for d'Italia's consultants to calculate know how much fabric is required for a basic design, after which you may request for a referral to a dressmaker. After the making of the garment has commenced, there are many stages where the design can be tweaked along the way - so you will end up with a completely unique and individual style, custom-made for you! Although this requires a fair amount of faith in the dressmaker's talents, it is the most creative way to make something amazing. After having "settled in" with a seamstress by having had a number of garments made by her in the past, many regular customers eventually trust their dressmaker to help them create styles individually for them. A personal relationship develops between customer and dressmaker - one based on familiarity and understanding...

I had a really lovely experience meeting with Shuchi at D’Italia. The staff were welcoming and patient which made me felt at ease. Not to mention the fabrics, there were so many options to choose from and the quality is a cut above the rest! Shuchi was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. She was able to take the inspiration and my vision to guide me in the right direction. They were genuinely interested in getting to know the person I am and thought of ides to play to my strengths and comfort. Shuchi was honest and has an eye for detail, which made the dream of designing my dress stress free and fun.

One of the best decisions I made for the big day was to go through d'Italia for my dress. I knew I wanted a long sleeve gown for my winter wedding but really couldn't find anything that used high quality lace that wasn't priced at an obscene amount. I went through and picked out a variety of lace options that was within my budget and at no time was I ever pressured into looking at the most expensive lace, it was all about what would look and work best with my design concept and body. Once the perfect fabric was found, I was assigned to a dressmaker that would be suited to carry out my idea. The entire process was easy, and I loved seeing my dream dress come to life. Dragana was incredible and made me my perfect dress. I personally think if you want genuine lace and not the overpriced polyester then look no further, their fabric is truly stunning and worth every dollar.

My beautiful material and french lace ordered!!! Now onto the fun designing part.. I can't wait! The best service from D'Italia who have made this enormous task so easy for me.. I am so relieved and comforted knowing my beautiful custom made dress in in the best of hands. Thank you, D'Italia, I couldn't be happier with your exceptional level of service and willingness to make my dream come true!

A great experience that a really helped my vision come to life. I had tried on so many dresses and then knew in my mind what I wanted but to have it come to life in the store and then with the dress maker was magic! I would comment that their communication frequency could be improved - just to reduce the nerves. But on the whole a stunning result at a great price too.

My wedding dress was everything I had hoped for! It was next level amazing! They custom dyed the colour for me, listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered. It was my dream dress.

I am obsessed with my d'italia wedding dress. I seriously did not want to take it off. Julie my dressmaker was so down to earth and was so accomodating with the fact that I live in the Northern Territory and could only make dress fittings during school holidays. The fabric is stunning and the d'italia staff were so helpful.

d'Italia Couture were amazing to deal with. I had such an amazing experience. I had an idea in mind for my dream dress and after months of trying on dresses and speaking to countless designers, I came across d'italia. From the moment i arrived I felt welcomed and the staff were so helpful and friendly and helped me source the most amazing fabric. My Couture designer Dragana was absolutely incredible and worked with me to create my perfect dress, making tweaks along the way to pull it all together. I highly recommend d'Italia and couldn't be happier with my experience

What an amazing and personal experience. Being able to ask questions about not only my taste and thoughts and dreams, but being able to make decisions one at a time that speak to who I am as a person and what I love was so special. Pala was awesome in giving the right balance of advice and space to make my own mind up. And Mary was the most wonderful person in making both my and my mum's dress and is now a life-long friend. Thank you D'Italia, please keep blessing other brides in your service :D

The ladies at D'Italia were amazing and so helpful when choosing my dress fabric. They got me in touch with an amazing dress maker Eva who was able to make the perfect dress for my day.

16 Mar 2019

I had my dress custom made with them to suit the dress I had originally wanted which was $6000! They were very cost effective and I loved what they did for me, what I paid with them was about half the price of the other dress which was amazing!

Suchie was so helpful in helping choose the materials to make my dress. And the budget options had such a variety that I didn’t have to spend more than I wanted or needed to have a dress I loved

18 Jan 2019

I had a fantastic experience at D’Italia. Shuchi was able to understand my vision, though I couldn’t really collect my thoughts and ideas together. Her kind and welcoming personality put me at ease and she guided me throughout the process. She showed me a beautiful collection of material and quickly understood my likes and dislikes. Shuchi has exceptional attention to detail. At the end of the appointment, I felt relieved! I am so excited to see my Wedding dress come together!

This place is perfect for brides who have been struggling to find a dress. The staff at Melbourne Wedding and Bride referred me to d'italia. I was able to find the exact fabrics I had in mind the very first time I walked into the store! I am beyond excited to see my dress in a few months time! Thanks to all the ladies who work at d'Italia, especially Shuchi

They were so easy to work with! I was nervous about the sizing but it fit incredibly straight away before alterations, everything was just perfect.

16 Nov 2018

They were incredible! The lady there was so helpful and the whole process from right at the beginning was so easy and lovely. They made sure they could make my dress in my tight time frame which was unbelievable, they just started straight away. My dressmaker Mary Andronis was a dream
