I can’t wait to wear my wedding dress! It’s exactly how I wanted, but couldn’t find it anywhere else! Highly recommend Katsuko. She certainly knows what she’s doing!”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating my beautiful wedding dress. Anyone can have plans and dreams but have to rely upon others to bring those dreams to life. You most certainly did that for me. My dress felt wonderful to wear. My fiance was in tears when he saw me walking down the aisle and our guests were stunned into silence. Even the Reverend said she was “quite jealous”. Everyone I came into contact with on that day said how beautiful my dress was. I will be forever grateful to you Katsuko. We are amazed at the exquisite workmanship you have done to create my dream. Once again, thank you.”

“Katsuko is a fantastic designer with creative ideas. I have tried on many wedding dresses at bridal shops, and I realized what kind of wedding dress I wanted, but I couldn’t find it in the shops. And then I ordered my wedding dress from Katsuko. I got my dream wedding dress which is the only one in the world for me.

The fitting time was a really enjoyable process for making my wedding dress. I explained many details and imagined what I wanted, and Katsuko gave a lot of ideas. I had a very memorable wedding day with this wedding dress, and I am so grateful for Katsuko’s work.”

Katsuko has made me a beautiful wrap-around silk dress. I’ve worn it to work for the first time today and had a few compliments already. It’s contemporary, feels lovely and has fits me perfectly. She makes good suggestions about what suits your shape and what’s practical to wear. I wholeheartedly recommend Katsuko. I’m really happy with my lovely designer dress.

I cannot recommend Katsuko highly enough! After trying on many many wedding dresses I had a very clear idea of what I wanted but could not find it anywhere. Katsuko did an incredible job of translating my descriptions into exactly the dress I had in my mind. Her excellent understanding of fabrics and styles was invaluable and the workmanship was fabulous. Added to that, Katsuko is just a very lovely person to work with making the whole process so enjoyable for a very nervous bride! (Photo by “Graham Hiscox of StudioH Photography”)

I don’t think that I have enough words to describe how great working with Katsuko was. It was an absolute pleasure to see her for my fittings and she is very creative, skilled, patient and a good sounding board to discuss ideas with.

Katsuko is able to balance working with your individual ideas, taste and style with her own to wonderful effect. The amount of work Katsuko completed on my wedding outfits (4 pieces) was phenomenal. You can see it in her designs and testimonials; the brides look completely different, but for each one Katsuko has created the right dress in the perfect style for them.

I had some general ideas for my wedding outfits and Katsuko was able to skilfully work with and guide me to turn these initial thoughts into some truly stunning outfits that completely wowed me, my guests and especially my husband when he saw me walking up the aisle to marry him.

I cannot thank her enough and also would advise any bride to consider having something made with Katsuko. You will have a really lovely experience working towards something truly unique and absolutely right for you, which to me is the perfect and only way in which things should go for such a special event as your wedding day.

I was looking for a special dress for my sister in law’s wedding party
for a long time, but I couldn’t find the “right” one. I asked Katsuko
to make a dress and she showed me many different type of fabrics,
checked my skin tone and gave me some advise. She also listened conscientiously
about what type of dress I wanted to have. My dress was perfect for the wedding
and lots of people loved it, especially my mother in law who said “what a wonderful dress!”.
I was very happy at the end of the day. Thank you very much.

I would like to have “only one” wedding dress in the world, so I asked to Katsuko to make it. She suggested a lot of materials, trimmings and designs and I chose the best fabrics and got a wonderful wedding dress which I imagined. She made my dress with close attention in every detail, and it was very beautiful. I was so excited every time I had a fitting. Finally we had an amazing wedding ceremony. Thank you very much.

Katsuko helped to make a dream come true by re-making my mother’s vintage 1960’s wedding dress for my own wedding. She was satisfied with the condition of the silk and was patient and open with my thoughts & impressions in re-making it. It was such a fun creative process to change the neckline, add beautiful lace detail around the neckline. She designed a beautiful organza and lace trim bolero to match. And she created a cathedral length 2 layer veil to suit the cathedral wedding in San Sebastian. There were many compliments from family & friends and my mother was especially pleased to see how well it turned out. Such quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, I can’t recommend her enough. Thank you again Katsuko san.

I can’t thank you enough for all of your hard work on my wedding dress and cape. I love them so much. I had so many compliments and loads of people want my cape.

It was a magical day. Simply the BEST ever. We were both so happy and couldn’t stop smiling. In fact my face was aching by the end of the day.

I loved the whole process. I would highly recommend you to anyone. You are skillful, talented and patient.The button on my cape works so well too.

Thank you so much again. You’re contribution to the biggest, best day of our lives will never be forgotten.

When I visited Katsuko for the fitting, I had a very enjoyable time. I didn’t have any images for my wedding dress, and Katsuko gave me some nice ideas and advice from her dressmaking experience. Finally she made me the most wonderful dress in the world. I was very glad that she listened to all my questions and wishes for the dress at the each fitting, and created a unique wedding dress for me. All guests applauded me on the wedding day and I had the happiest time with my husband. My wedding dress was very appropriate for the church and I felt that it was so good to order from Katsuko.

Katsuko is a wonderfully talented and kind wedding dress designer, and I’m so glad to have found her.

I went to her with not much time and very confused ideas about what I wanted, but she gently and patiently helped me refine my ideas, and came up with a dress that was absolutely exquisite and everything I could have hoped for.

I felt like a princess on my wedding day and my husband said that I looked stunning.

Thank you, Katsuko!

Katsuko’s design was wonderful – she took on board all my ideas and made them into something elegant and beautiful, with a hint of classic Hollywood glamour.

The dress felt great on the day and everyone commented on how lovely it looked.  Going to see Katsuko for my fittings was like visiting an oasis of calm in the busy build-up to the wedding, I loved it.  Her reassuring smile and attention to detail made the whole process a joy.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Katsuko for creating my perfect wedding dress.  It is often very difficult to express ideas from one’s mind but Katsuko developed it with such passion and perfection and made it exactly into the dress I had envisioned.  Her patience and warm smile always made me and my bridesmaids look forward to our next fitting.

On my wedding day I felt like a princess and overwhelmed by the compliments of our friends and family.  My husband couldn’t take his eyes of me and just loved it.  Everyone was in awe and it made me feel very special.

Thank you so very much for all the hard work and detail you put in to making my wedding dress for my very special day.  I absolutely love the dress and wish I could just wear it again and again…”

I went to Katsuko with a strong vision of how I wanted my wedding dress to look, (Lord of the Rings style!), and she was very enthusiastic about the idea.

I was surprised at how quickly she managed to make the dress and even more at how beautiful it was, exactly how I pictured it.  She even added some extra touches to the hem an sleeves.  When we needed a alteration to the length it was no problem.

All my guests commented on the dress, it was something unique and special, on a day I will never forget.


Some of the loveliest times before my wedding were the dress fittings with Katsuko.  She made it feel like such a special event, had wonderful ideas and she made sure every tiny detail was perfect.

I would 100% recommend any bride to go to Katsuko for the dress of their dreams.
