Here’s what our brides said…
“I fell in love with her Mistinguett dress, however, wanted a scalloped lace V Neck rather than a boat neck - Sabina made that happen. The greatest compliment that a got on my wedding day was that the dress was show stopping and Sabina has to take the credit for that!.” Catherine
“As soon as I touched one of her dresses- the fabric felt amazing and even as a non-expert I could tell they were something special. I've never received so many compliments as I did wearing my dress, I will never forget it and can't thank her enough!” Sarah
“Sabina went above and beyond what I'd expected as a designer. My dress was gorgeous; It felt wonderful to wear and I've been assured many times was the most beautiful dress ever! Sabina was friendly, knowledgeable and personal and her dresses are the most beautiful by far.” Sara
“Sabina is a lovely person and makes the whole process just that bit more special and magical. I would recommend her to anyone.” Anna
“I couldn't recommend Sabina highly enough. The customer service she provided was fantastic. Nothing was a bother, the fittings were efficient and she even hand delivered my wedding dress and drycleaned it whilst I was on honeymoon. The dress was of a very high quality and felt beautiful to wear. She went the extra mile and even helped out with a bridesmaid dress crisis the week before.” Stephanie
“The dress that Sabina designed and made for us was absolutely beautiful. At every point in the process she was warm, kind and understanding. The quality was exceptional.” Lucie
“As soon as I saw Sabina's collection I knew she was the designer for me. I had a very personal and high quality experience.” Amelia
“From start to finish buying a dress from Sabina was an absolute pleasure. I loved the dresses, the quality really stood out to other much more expensive dresses I'd seen. Sabina has a real passion and love for her work. The quality of the dress was excellent and it was so comfortable to wear whilst still looking beautiful.” Alison
“She has an absolutely beautiful vision, the dresses are unique and pure elegance, made from the finest silk. The silk glides off the figure and therefore incredibly flattering fit. Very friendly service, willing to go above and beyond.” Aimee
“I live in New York and had always loved Sabina's style of dresses....like nothing else I had seen on the market. We had an idea to change it a little and add lace. Only 2 months later, I returned to England and the dress we had imagined was hanging there...looking more beautiful than I could have hoped for” Sarah
“Sabina's dresses are elegant, beautifully cut and made of the best quality fabrics. They far outshone dresses I'd seen at other London designers.” Sara
“Because she offered something which I couldn't find anywhere else, and trust me I looked! The service she provides and the dresses she produces are second to none!” Sarah
“She was the kindest, most professional designer I could find and made the experience of trying on the dress amazing.” Malin
“Her dresses are stylish, elegant, timeless, affordable and so well made!!” Jacqui
