Who we are
Aurora Jacques is a 2 woman design team. We have been working together since June 2019 but have been close friends for over 25 years. We both come from a background of working within Mental Health which is far removed from our much loved design side. Even though we both still work primarily within Mental Health, our other love is being creative. We love to take an idea and design something beautiful. To be able to produce something which makes a persons special day even more perfect is something we love being part of.
What we do
Aurora Jacques designs and makes Bespoke Bridal Wear and Occasion Wear. The Occasion Wear covers such pieces as Evening Gowns, Cocktail Dresses, Prom Dresses. In addition to designing and making clothes we also design and make accessories such as Veils, Belts, Jewellery and Underwear. Our focus is for you to be able to have a complete outfit with accessories made to complement. For the Jewellery to match the outfit. For a Veil to match a Bridal Dress.
Since we are able to design and construct a number of different elements - we are therefore able to meet a wide variety of visions, whether it is a simple elegant design or a more flamboyant piece. We work closely with you to make your vision become a reality.
How we do it
If you would like to speak with us please go to our contacts page and send an email. We will then contact you back and from there organise an appointment to discuss your vision. We use inspiration boards to help both you and us to capture that vision. Once you are happy with an idea we would then start to design it. Once you are happy with the design we would then discuss fabrics, materials, colours and prices.
If you are having a piece made that requires fittings then we would take your measurements. The process moving forward will be slightly different depending on what you are having designed. If we are designing and making your bridal dress we would usually require a minimum of 4 further visits before the dress would be completed and ready to take away. However, if you are not local to Dorset we can still make arrangements for fittings to suit you.
Covid - 19
Due to the current situation with Covid - 19 we are limiting the number of people visiting our Studio for appointments. Face Masks and anti bacterial hand gel is a requirement and is available at the Studio if you don't have your own.
