Designer Shaline Kirkpatrick-Bennett specializes in creating beautiful, elegant, statements of your style.  From simple, unadorned designs to incredibly detailed gowns with extensive beading and handwork, Shaline's 25 years of experience and unequalled craftsmanship will create a gown that you will treasure forever.

Besides the freedom afforded by having a custom design created especially for you, a custom dress will fit you perfectly as each custom gown is patterned, sewn and fit exactly to your size and designed to flatter your individual body shape, while letting your personality shine through!

From the free initial consultation, the written proposal that inculde fabric swatches, sketches and costs to the final fitting and pick up, Shaline works closely with each client.  Not only does each bride have the dress of their dreams but a wonderful experience to look back on when wedding day pictures are viewed in future years.
