Your Perfect Wedding Dress 

 The right wedding dress can be difficult to find. There are many considerations. What is the right shape for your body? What is the right style for you? What length wedding dress looks best on you? Should you wear a long or a simple veil? What will you feel most comfortable wearing? So many questions and so many possible answers? But it all comes down to what feels right and looks great on you!  

Can the perfect wedding dress be so difficult to find? Yes, indeed it can if you are not sure what you are looking for? Or if you are looking for the wrong thing, or in the wrong places. 
Perhaps you are convinced that you a particular shape dress would suit you best, when infact other shapes may be more flattering on you? But how can you be sure? 
So, as you see, it is important to understand what is the right style, shape, fit and make for you. We all have different figures and unique styles. We are not the perfect size 10 with lovely long legs. So, of course we do not all look good in a standard size 10 dress!
So finding the perfect wedding dress can prove quite difficult! So why not engage the help from the experts. Have you considered getting a wedding dress designed and tailored especially for your figure and to your specification. A wedding dress which you know will fit you perfectly and look exceptional! 
By having the dress designed and tailored for you, you will be sure that you are getting a unique dress that is best suited to your figure and style.
Maire meets with her clients at her studio in Fitzwilliam Square where she sketches designs and tries on mock garments to get the best style and fit for you. She then takes measurements before creating a pattern. Follow up fittings are arranged before the final outfit is finished. Please contact Maire for your consultat

Why Made To Measure Clothing?

Beautiful dresses that have been altered to fit the body shape, a dress designed to suit the individual, which involves altering the pattern, tailoring to achieve a flattering skirt length, arm length and neck line are all part of the made to measure service. There is no doubt about it, a quality garment in an excellent cut and finish makes the wearer stands out from the crowd!

Savvy shoppers who are spending their money on unique, made-to-measure pieces are part of what is being coined "the new luxury".  It is a fact that "Made to Measure Designers and Couturiers have always had a special relationship with celebrities, who n dresses to wear for particularly glamorous events. But now more than ever, couture numbers have become the gold standard for women who have to look elegant and fashionable in front of the flashbulbs. 

How often have we heard women saying. -  "Nothing I ever bought off-the-peg fitted properly. The sleeves were always too short, and things just don't sit right because they are made to a standard cut, and no woman is the same shape. I have found as I've got older, I need durable, well made clothes that are flattering and well cut.

With bespoke you can create illusions of being slimmer, taller or curvier.... Maire

Mother of the Bride Outfits 

 

Maire Forkin's contemporary Mother of the Bride Dresses are not the typical Mother of the Bride dresses in that they are chic, classical, yet timeless.

They have clean lines and are cut to enhance the body. They are made in quality fabric, so necessary when creating a good quality garment and in a style that provides versatility to the wearer.

Also, clients often wonder what they should wear to a Black-tie wedding. Should they wear a full length gown or a flattering classical dress?

Maire works with each client to see what best suits them and the look they are trying to achieve. She sees what shape and style best suits their silhouette and body shape. As a tailor and designer she enjoys bringing the total look to life for the client who visit her at her studio in Dublin.

Cut And Style

Style and Cut are all important when you are looking for the perfect chic outfit that will make you look your most flattering. Be it the perfect coat-length, the dress or skirt length or the comfortable and flattering sleve length, there are all important considerations when looking for a top quality well fitting outfit. 
Ladies looking for an outfit for a wedding, a Mother of the Bride or Groom outfit or wedding guest want to have an outfit that they can be confident wearing. Furthermore, they want the dress or two-piece that they can wear again on many other occasions.
How many times have we spent money on an outfit we wear only once, and the rest of the time is sits in the wardrobe idle?  Did you ever stop to think why we have not worn it on a second or a third occasion? 
Maire provides a made to measure service where the client will have an outfit that fits perfectly, an outfit to suit each individual's style and silhouette, and which can be made in a wide range of fabrics and colours. 
Her collection is available for viewing by appointment at her studio in Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin 2.
