Beauty by Design is a positive solution to an ethical dilemma. Today there are many places to shop for a wedding gown with few options to purchase one which is made ethically. All of our products are individually handmade and most are made with sustainable or natural materials.



What is the price range of your dresses?

We can design and create dresses between $1,000 and $5,000 depending on the level of complexity and the materials chosen to use.

Do I need an appointment?

Yes, you can call us or book online for an alterations fitting or custom clothing consultation appointment.

How far in advance should I shop for my dress?

We recommend shopping about 6 to 8 months before your wedding date. It normally takes about 4 to 6 months for custom dressmaking and about 2 to 4 months for alterations. 

What do I need to bring with to my fitting appointment?

To get proper fit of how your dress will feel on the wearing day, you will need to bring or wear the strapless bra and the heels that you will wear with your dress. Make it fun and bring your closest friends and family members. 

Can you design a dress for me from scratch?

Yes! Have a specific design in mind that you can not find anywhere? Deborah will work with you to create a fully custom, one of a kind dress made just for you! We do not copy other designers work, but would use it for inspiration. See more about custom design in our services.

Will you alter my dress from another store?

Yes! We are equipped to do all kinds of alterations on all clothing, mainly bridal and formal wear. Dresses must be clean before doing alterations. Want major changes? No problem, we have no creative limit! Remember to bring the exact under garments and shoes that you will be wearing with your dress in order to get a proper fit.
