MODIFY: LUXURY WEDDING DRESS UPCYCLING

AS SEEN IN COSMOPOLITAN and GLAMOUR

We understand your precious wedding dress is too beautiful not to be enjoyed again.

Our MODIFY service specialises in luxury wedding dress repurposing. Our collections of unique handmade items can either be taken from, or simply inspired by, your wedding dress.

“Thank you for making my wedding dress fit so perfectly, I felt amazing on our wedding day.

The straps that you custom-made for me were stunning and completed my gown. I loved the hand-sewn beading work that you did too: it was definitely worth the time and patience.”
