Maevana Bridal has a simple and informative ordering system in place, which suits our made to order service. To place an order, simply email us with the style, size and colour you desire.
You may have noticed we don’t have an ecommerce website. This is due to the way we produce our Demi Couture gowns. We are a small studio that takes delight in working one-on-one with each of our clients, in studio, interstate or internationally. We are not a fast fashion house and because of this, we work to a booking system. Once a calendar month is booked out, we don’t take on any more clients for that month; hence why you can’t order without confirming your event date!
Maevana has carefully created a range of silhouettes that will speak to a variety of brides, transitioning from soft bias cut standard sized garments, right up to fully structured, hand embellished custom order designs. All our collections feature a varied range of silk and linen finishes, working in these fabrications through to the inner mounting and lining layers
All garment pricing is with standard sizing, unless specified Made to Measure, which has a number of toile fittings already included. Within our collections we wanted to offer a number of garments that were designed and sampled with standard sizing in mind; sizes 8-12. These garments are constructed in a way that is alteration-friendly, and available for interstate and international clients.
We recommend investing in a Made to Measure toile fitting where possible, We offer this service for our bridal collection and event wear garments, prices for toile's vary due to the difference in construction for each style but the cost is minimal and upon request. A toile is a 3D fabric version of your 2D garment pattern, this is fitted to your form and then translated back to create a new pattern, from which your final gown is cut.
This is where we work closely with you over the course of several months to draft up a custom design, choosing the perfect coloured silks, laces and elements for your dream dress. Clients will need to be available for multiple studio meetings and 4-7 toile fittings, to tailor a dress that is cut like a second skin and one of a kind.
The price range for a custom order design varies with each garment, the very nature of this service is highly personalised with each gown using different drafting, fit, sewing and hand-executed techniques. We request a meeting in studio to draft up a base sketch before creating your individual quote.
Custom order isn't just for highly structure and detailed garments, we offer this service to anyone who can't find their dream dress. With simple straight grain cuts starting at $2,500 for Linen, $2,200 for bias cut Satin Silk, $3,200 for thick Silk Crepe De Chine and $5,200 for Sandwashed Silk with lace overlay.
4-7 weeks from receipt date to garment completion. This does not include shipping times.
3-6 months from receipt date to garment completion. This is subject to lace availability, and does not include shipping time.
These order times accommodate our fabric ordering & construction times. We have fabric coming from every corner of the globe, and it can take up to 4-10 weeks for our beautiful fabrics to arrive at the studio from order placement! At the studio, we work very hard to finish garments well under these time allowances.
