”The client must empower and radiate through the gown, not the other way where the gown overpowers the bride or the wedding day.”
For her latest collection of sophisticated and feminine designs for the modern bride, Donna has taken inspiration from the classic designs of the 1960′s and 70′s and added her individual contemporary touch. Donna says her collection comprises gowns that are sleek and feminine with fitted fabrics that mould the silhouette of the body to full skirts and ruffles. As each gown is made-to-measure every client has an individual garment that has been hand-crafted to accentuate the feminine body to make every woman feel luxurious.
Donna understands that the creation of a bride’s gown is one of the most important, if not the most important item on their wedding day. Her friendly and creative staff assist each bride through the exciting development of their gown, making it a truly memorable experience.
The fashion industry has acknowledged Donna Tobin Couture’s creative designing and innovative use of fabrics, pattern cutting and manufacturing techniques with awards in every year of the Western Australian Fashion Design Awards, including the 1997 Fashion Designer of the Year.
