Who we are

And what we believe


We care about your style. We care about your fit. We care about your experience. And mostly we care about you.

We'll listen to you, we'll understand you and we'll inspire you by gently pushing your boundaries.

We are driven by our passion to uniquely style you to polished perfection on the one day you care most about, your wedding day.

We also care about all women, so we donate to New Zealand Women's Refuge, because we believe in the potential and strength of every woman.

Bringing with her a refreshingly contemporary and holistic approach to bridal, Alana returned to Dunedin after seven years in the style mecca of Melbourne to simply follow a dream.....
