Designs with Hilda

I am so thrilled to be working on Hilda’s destination wedding dress! Hilda and I go way back to high school on the coast, and we reconnected while working at Holt’s. She has amazing style, and is a beautiful artist.  I’m so happy for her and her future.

We found the perfect fabric…and we just fit the dress muslin. Now we’re good to go with the actual dress!  Yeah!

Designs with Angela

I had such a great time meeting with my very good friend Angela, to talk about her custom dresses.  We’ve been friends forever. It’s such a joy to be making her wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses- and a very hot little number for her stagette! I can’t wait to get started on them- and to celebrate with her next spring!

Where Fittings are Fun!

I totally understand that getting a custom dress made can sometimes make one feel unsure, uncomfortable, or intimidated perhaps. That’s why at the Little Pink Dress Atelier it’s more exciting and relaxing to get a custom dress and/or headpiece made than going elsewhere!  You can bring your friends and family, and enjoy tea or delicious sparkling drinks with treats, as you have your consultation and fittings. It’s all done in a private, stylish environment, so you can just unwind,  and enjoy this magical time in your life. Clients find the process very creative and fun.  You can be as involved as you’d like to!  This means that together with my experience, your ideas can blossom into the perfect dress for you.

These are some pictures my sister Sarah took of some treats and sweets enjoyed at the Little Pink Dress Atelier.

Hope to celebrate with you soon…

Sparkling kisses and twinkling wishes,


Poolside Pretty

This summer my sister Sarah and I collaborated on a fun fashion photo shoot.  Sarah lives in Australia, and I don’t get to see her very often. This made it even more special!  We did it at my 60’s style place in Kerrisdale, Vancouver. We were mostly poolside, but also shoot in the suite, as well as the very retro lobby (which I just love!) It was a  very hot summer day in August.  Oh how I miss the heat already! We had a lot of fun, enjoying mimosas to keep cool!

The dresses are one of a kind pieces made by myself.  The gorgeous models are Jen Houston Farley and Ayana Springer.  The beautiful makeup was done by Jasmine Hoffman and  Sara Muchansky did the glam hairstyles.

This is a preview of the shoot- more to come soon!
