“The bespoke service at The OWN Studio is beyond special” Pom Ogilvy

We offer an exclusive bespoke wedding and evening wear service for clients looking to create a one-off custom look.

An incredibly creative and unique experience, you will work in close partnership with our designers and founders Jess and Rosie to bring your vision to life. Every stitch, every fold, every special detail is handcrafted and something that is completely unique and personalised to you.

We take on a limited number of bespoke commissions each year as a phenomenal amount of work goes into crafting each and every piece. To enquire about our bespoke service, please email us or complete our enquiry form.

“From the minute I met Jess and Rosie in their chic atelier, I knew I’d found the designers to create my dream dress…their bespoke service is beyond special - everything is made to measure, working with luxe fabrics sourced in Italy and France.

Jess and Rosie take time to listen to your vision, drafting beautiful pencil sketches and inspirational mood boards galore, so you really feel you’re part of the design journey. The results are a heaven-sent blend of classic and contemporary - unfussy, timeless and breathtakingly beautiful.”



The journey begins at our studio in London at your first design consultation with our one of our founders and designers. The beauty of creating a custom look is that you’ll have total flexibility and control on design, fabric and silhouettes so it is an incredibly intimate and creative experience. 

You will have had a pre- consultation where we will have learned all about you, your vision for the wedding and your outfit, so at your first design consultation we’ll explore sketches, references and ideas as well as fabric options, silhouettes, cuts and trimmings, to build a physical vision board of your dream look.

We have an extensive fabric library to take you through and we’ll often mock up your vision with the pieces we have in the studio to help with the inspiration process. The design will then be finessed in follow up consultations until you are happy for us to get started on creating your toile. Measurements will be taken at this stage. 


From sketch to real life - for bespoke work we start by cutting a ‘toile’ which is a mockup of your outfit in your measurements in a cotton fabric.

Your toile is the first moment where your outfit starts to take its shape and is designed to give you the opportunity to interrogate every part of the design and most importantly the fit.

We’ll drape, pin and draw onto the fabric to help us visualise the look in the final fabric.

Your outfit will now be starting to take real form; at your next fitting (what we call your ‘shell’ fitting) you will see the it in the final fabric for the first time. At this stage we will be fitting the foundation or the ‘shell’ of the dress - we won’t yet have added details, fastenings or boning as we want to perfect the fit first. This also gives you the opportunity to specify exactly where you would like to add embellishment and detail to the dress. In total you will have between 3-5 fittings with Jess or Rosie and OWN’s head seamstress. Fittings are held during the week at our seamstress’ London atelier, as your outfit is a constant work in progress. The final fitting is a collection fitting where you will sign it off and take it away with you - this usually happens around 2-3 weeks before the wedding.


We regularly create custom looks for clients who are unable to visit the studio or are able to only fly in for fittings. The journey is just as special and collaborative. 

Says NYC based bride Sara: "From the very beginning, Jess and the OWN team made the entire bespoke process easy, special, and—most importantly—fun, even working together across the Atlantic (I'm based in NYC).

Over Zoom, Jess and I pored through my endless inspiration photos and discussed all the details that I was looking for in my dream dress. When we met a few months later at the design studio in London, she had somehow managed to distill my ideas into a series of sketches and fabric options that captured my vision perfectly.

"I cannot thank the team enough for their thoughtfulness and care throughout the process, and I'm so excited to wear our bespoke creation at my wedding in May!"
