We are Denise and Kate Orr, a mother and daughter team who both have a love of designing and creating unique individual gowns and dresses for weddings and formals.
The range can also work for some areas of dance wear and fancy dress.
We live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland and sell our gowns both online and from our home studio near Noosa.
We are often asked to design the perfect wedding gown for a Noosa Beach wedding or something romantic that will complement a ceremony in the one of the many breathtaking locations in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
With my background in fashion design and millinery and Kate’s as the principal of her own dance school for 13 years, we love to combine our creative experience and talents to design gorgeous outfits for girls who want something unique and different.
We love beautiful fabrics and trims, lace and feathers and crystals and everything soft and girly and feminine. We equally adore the quirky and unusual and love themes and vintage styles.
We believe our concept of using pre-made mix and match pieces as the basis of our outfits is unique to the bridal and formal industries and has many advantages over buying a dress off the rack or having one made from scratch.
*Costs are kept to a minimum so you can stick to your budget more easily.
*Individual finishing touches are added to match your colour scheme or theme.
*Sizing and length adjustments are done prior to adding trims and embellishments so you don’t have to pay for expensive alterations.
*The very latest fashion trends can be incorporated into your outfit so you will be up to the minute in style!
*Figure or body issues can be disguised or minimised using trims, attachments or accessories.
A small bust can be made to look much fuller and more feminine by inserting uplifting bra cups and/or using styling tricks such as ruching and gathering.
A large bust needs to be well supported and can be made less obvious with the right boning and straps.
A “square” shaped midriff can be made to look slimmer and more curvaceous by adding vertical trim panels.
Large hips or bottom will be totally hidden by a fuller A-line or tulle skirt.
Here are just a few of the many themes and options we can work with you to create a unique outfit:
Princess style tulle wedding gowns or formal dresses.

Remember our mix and match concept allows you to choose any fabrics for overlays or accessories such as boleros or sleeves, straps, beading, crystals in colours to match your gown pieces or any colour you may desire. The options are simply endless. You may just wish to add something simple like a sash with a bow or brooch or a flower. The choice is yours!
