The Designers at Fender Bridal Design

Our team have extensive experience in ballet costume design and production, coupled with a fine art, graphic design, pattern-making and event management background which we use to make dresses that:

  • Have ease of movement and are comfortable to wear with a perfect fit
  • Resonate with the personality and beauty of the bride wearing it
  • We view each of our dresses as a hand-crafted work of art
  • Finding the balance between making a dress that has a “presence” (imaginative and fascinating), but also tasteful and elegant
  • Having precisely constructed under structure to give your dress clean flowing lines

We specialize in hand embroidery and can take orders for custom-made lace according to client specifications. 

We offer a reception dress service to ensure that your reception look is still graceful and manageable without the train of your ceremony dress.

Our Studio

Our studio is based in the beautiful Nature’s Valley area surrounded by the Helderberg & Hottentots Holland mountain range in Somerset West. We are 5 minutes’ drive away from Lourensford & Vergelegen Wine estates. We can recommend ordering a freshly brewed coffee from the coffee roastery at Lourensford after a fitting or visiting Vergelegen’s Stable Restaurant for lunch.

Recent custom-made lace projects

We will design & make a specific piece of lace for you. This design can have significant meaning for you or your partner – a special date, motif or message can be included in the design. We can make this special detail with threads, beads or silk.
