Sketch your Dream Gown

We take the exact measurements of your body and make all the necessary notes to begin the first draft of the custom pattern.
Fittings are booked
This is a "Toile" fitting where your gown is cut from Muslin fabric and custom fit for accuracy before the gown is cut from the actual fabric.
The Construction- At this stage, the gown is cut and fitted in your chosen fabric.This gives the client the opportunity to visualize the end result and experience how her gown will look like.
Adjustments and Embellishments- This fitting is about checking that the fit is perfect and comfortable, the embellishments and linings have been pinned in place and final details are discussed.
At the final fitting the customer tries on her gown for the final approval.
Your Gown is Ready
The gown is then pressed and packed, ready for pick up.
Fitting dates are booked according to your availability, convenience and scheduled wedding date.
I had the best custom design and sewing experience at Studio REN doing my bridal gown! After looking in countless places, I decided to have my bridal gown custom made. I had an amazing first meeting with Orly the creative director and she had a couple of sketches done especially for me and the style I was looking for. I had a great experience coming to her studio for fittings, and each fitting I could see the progress on my gown which was super exciting.
The gown fitted me perfectly and exactly as I imagined it would be, so thank you so much Studio REN for this incredible experience!
I can't tell you enough good things about Studio Ren... She is absolutely stunning (as a person), but so are her dresses! Very grateful I found her.
Orly Lauren Doubinsky thank you for making this curvy full-figured woman feel sexy & beautiful not ONLY for my wedding day but in my skin everyday!!!! Knowing I had you in my corner leading up to the wedding gave my life ease & this sense of confidence a bride can sometimes loose with nerves. I adore you AND your work!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
