Heirloom Redesign

You grew up with images in your head of your mother’s or your grandmother’s wedding dress, imagining what your own wedding would be like someday. When you got engaged, your mom took her gown out of the preservation box for you to try on, just for fun. Then you started thinking, maybe I COULD wear this dress, but not as it is. And this is where we come in. We understand that your heirloom gown is important to you for many reasons, so why not repurpose it and take all the things that you loved growing up and combine those things you love with your own style? Our heirloom redesign is the perfect way to honor the woman you admire and include some tradition on your big day.

Timeless Tradition & Sustainability

Transforming an heirloom design isn’t just about taking it in here and there; it is about sectioning the pieces and parts that you love and combining them with a twist of modernity and your personal style. Kira doesn’t just come to her heirloom redesigns with needle and thread; she approaches them as an artist would a canvas and uses her skill, training, and unique talent to reconstruct a design from head to toe while preserving the grace and sophistication that it had originally. She doesn’t redo it; she highlights and showcases the areas that suit your style and then fills in the spaces in between to make it the “perfect wedding gown” for you. Since we are recycling the garment, these projects come with an added bonus of sustainability - a special way to honor your ancestry AND the environment.

Your Dress  reMade  reAltered reDesigned

From a few nips and tucks to make it fit you perfectly, to making a whole new gown out of the fabric of the heirloom piece, to simply removing the lace and adding it to a veil, the options are endless. Kira will take apart the heirloom piece with care and precision and give it the new life it deserves. Want to have a little piece of someone important to you on your big day but don’t want to wear it? She can take bits and pieces of the heirloom garment and make an accessory or add it into your own gown. This could even include a piece of Dad’s blue shirt or Grandpa’s military patch. Kira and her team love hearing your ideas and can guide you to the right options for you.

P.S. These are Kira’s favorite projects!
