| RURAL BRIDES |
Five years ago I started KIMBERLEY WOODWARD DESIGNS with the vision of providing a friendly, personalised and exclusive service to brides looking for a perfectly tailored, one-of-a-kind wedding dress in a stress free, relaxed, and inclusive environment. With extensive experience in the Fashion and Costume industries, I use couture techniques and skills to create your dream gown through a completely unforgettable experience.
After five successful and exciting years in Sydney, I am thrilled to announce that as of August 2017 I will also be providing this unique service to brides in rural NSW with the opening of a second studio in Tamworth! This service will be on an appointment only basis to ensure that you have my full attention for as long as you require. This allows me to chat with you one-on-one and maintain the highest level of quality in my work, while also dividing my time appropriately between consultations, fittings, and sewing time. Meeting with brides in the intimate Tamworth studio, I will collaborate with you to create individual designs, choose fabrics, and hold fittings.
Specialising in gowns for the unique, untraditional bride, each KWD gown is effortlessly sophisticated and reflects each individual bride’s personality, style, and passion. With a firm belief that choosing your wedding gown should be a stress free, memorable and magical experience; each consultation is held in a relaxed environment where I personally sketch up your dream gown before your eyes.
Depending on the final design, each gown usually requires a minimum of 4 months to make; however please don’t hesitate to ask if you are running short on time. Each gown is made through a series of fittings (usually about 4-5) during which time you will have many opportunities to adapt any aspects of the design as you watch your gown progress. Friends and family are always welcome to come along!
Previous KWD brides describe the experience as a “dream come true”, “brilliantly creative”, and “completely unique and original”.
“Kimberley is truly a talented and bespoke dressmaker and I simply could not have asked for more than what she has done for me. The entire experience was absolutely unique and Kimberley was with me every step of the way. She took in my ideas and worked with me to bring to life what every girl would call a ‘dream come true’. She was always very patient with me and really great at explaining and communicating her ideas and recommendations.” (May, 2015).
In addition to my couture bridal services, I specialise in bridesmaids dresses, mother of the bride dresses, formal gowns and cocktail dresses. KWD gowns are effortlessly sophisticated and characterised by uncomplicated elegance. Each gown is as unique as the woman who wears it. If that sounds like you, and you would prefer to meet in Tamworth than travel to Sydney, then please get in touch today.
Starting in August, consultations will initially be held every six to eight weeks, dependent on demand and individual wedding schedules.
