Meet Colette

The hands you've just seen are Colette's, and she's been busy sewing with them since she was a little girl. She’s happiest when she’s creating something beautiful and loves that she has the opportunity to make her brides as happy about wearing their gowns as she is to bring them to life.

PRESS & EDITORIAL COVERAGE

Colette Komm's work has been featured in print in Martha Stewart Weddings, New York Magazine, Elegant Bride, and The Vancouver Sun, as well as online in Brides, Style Me Pretty, Merci New York, and other bridal outlets.

Elegant Bride

"They are truly unique creations, marked by the kind of exquisite detail and meticulous workmanship that is bound to attract notice."

New York Magazine

"All of Komm's dresses are handmade and exquisite and crafty: stiff meringue peaks, neatly trimmed layers, covered buttons, and pleated bustles."

Martha Stewart Weddings

"This slinky number whose tiered swags of silk chiffon cling to your figure before flowing into a scalloped train . . . they won't be able to keep their eyes off you."

The Vancouver Sun

"Komm . . . works entirely on a custom basis. Clients fly to her in New York from across North America for multiple fittings."

MORE COLETTE

Colette is always making something! When she's not busy making wedding gowns, she's most likely baking something elaborate, or illustrating baby animals for her nephews and niece. She loves to spend time in Central Park, and grew up in Vancouver, Canada.
