About

The dresses in our collections demonstrate our love to detail and passion for craftmanship.

Ellie’s career in bridal and fashion industry started from a teenager. Working for several fashion brands, she was trained in many essential skills and understanding for different types of garments. Majored in Apparel Design at the college, she learned more professional pattern making and textile.

After getting married, she moved to New Zealand with her husband, and she had worked for Megs Tailoring, Karen Walker, Anna Schimmel Bridal Designer, Natalie Chan and Alma J bridal. While she was working for them, she designed and made wedding gowns for her own clients.

In 2018, she completed her first collection BEACH COLLECTION – a collection of high end quality of custom made gowns with affordable price tags.

She knows each brides are unique and have different desire so she always focus on each dress to show their personal beauty on their big day. All of her wedding dress designs are handmade using the most exquisite fabrics and intricate details from all over the world. When you try on a Ellie gown, you will feel “everything falls into place”. The cut, the fit, the silhouette and details are all unlike anything else.

We offer all those positives with the added assurance of a personalised experience. We know the stress of brides and provide them with all the information and assurance they need to feel confident when they put an order their dream dress.
