What we do
All gowns are personally designed by Brad himself over a series of private consultations. Over this time Brad can understand the vision for the dress… and the bride to can gain a feeling for the DARB style and fabrics by trying on sample gowns.
As each is a made-to-measure gown, follow-up sessions are required to attain a perfect fit. It is during this intimate collaboration that the design evolves.
In the tradition of couture dress-making, every stitch is meticulously placed by the hands of those who posses decades of knowledge, embellishing each gown by hand and making sure materials match the quality of their work, creating gowns to the highest standard of excellence right here in the Brisbane Arcade workshop.
Brad often searches the globe sourcing the most beautiful Italian silks, French lace, specialty fabrics. Over his 18 years in creating masterpieces, he has gained entry to European prestige fabric houses to ensure the most exclusive finery for his clients. Deluxe embellishments are also exquisite, designed by Brad and all hand beaded by artisans.
