It's no secret we are totally obsessed with all things French. And French bridal designer Laure de Sagazan definitely tops our list of indie and cool wedding dress brands we love, and now the Paris-based brand is bringing their signature 'Sur Mesure' — made to order! — stateside. Previously only offered at the brand's atelier in Paris, de Sagazan is giving US brides the chance to wear a custom wedding dress with the service being offered at the NYC atelier for the first time.
Laure de Sagazan's signature 'Sur Mesure' made to order wedding dresses are coming to the US for the first time, and we are beyond excited. The bridal designer has gotten the made to order process down to five easy steps. Promise, that's it. Five steps, five meetings, and voila — the dream wedding dress! Don't believe us? Laure de Sagazan's team outlined for us everything that goes into the five steps to the 'Sur Mesure' process below. Now, what are you waiting for?
Step 1: Initial fitting: In this initial fitting, the bride will meet the Laure de Sagazan team to discuss her bridal vision and go through current Laure de Sagazan styles. She will try on the existing styles (more than 60 available) to narrow down a list of preferred styles, materials, shapes etc. Taking the drop waist from one style mixing it with the lace of another and adding an open back detail to create something completely unique.
Step 2: Meeting the pattern maker: During this second fitting the bride will finalize her fitting by meeting with the pattern maker, who will make sure she gets all the elements she is looking for. The major decisions are taken shape-wise, and based on this the pattern maker can take measurements.
Step 3: The muslin fitting: After finalizing the dress details the seamstress will create a Muslin, which is the general shape of the dress in a light cotton fabric that can be adjusted to the body. This is a key moment for the pattern maker to make sure that the overall fit will be just right in the chosen fabric.
Step 4: Fabric fitting: In this fitting the bride will have her dress and the seamstress will go over final alterations if any are needed; making sure the dress fits perfectly.
Step 5: The final fitting: This is the last step! The dress is ready and the bride is able to come in and try it one last time before the big day!
