After trying on countless wedding dresses from a handful of wedding dress shops around LA, I felt incredibly discouraged. I had an idea in mind of what I wanted, but nothing seemed to work. I knew my only option was a custom made dress, but I assumed it’d cost me thousands of dollars. A stylist friend of mine told me to reach out to Rochelle & I figured it wouldn’t hurt to see what having a custom-made wedding dress would entail. After talking to Rochelle, I was so excited to hear it was something that not only could be done within my budget, but that I actually had so many options! She kept me involved from beginning to end, from the design stage, to sending progress pictures of the mock dress, to fittings in her studio, to going downtown to pick the fabric together. She was patient and had to make a few adjustments to the original design, whilst still keeping everything within my budget. She hand delivered my dress weeks before my wedding and made sure everything looked perfect for the big day. My dress turned out gorgeous and far exceeded my expectations. I received countless compliments and I felt beautiful on my big day. She is so talented and so easy to work with and I can’t stress enough how incredible she is to work with!- Chelsea Donsker
From Rochelle's clients...
"Rochelle was responsible for the crowning glory of my 1920s inspired wedding: a champagne satin halter gown with a fitted mermaid silhouette. I initially didn't know at all what I wanted my dress to look like, but with Rochelle's guidance, extensive research (aka. . .google and Pinterest), trips to the fashion district with her, and experimenting with fabric swatches, I was able to settle. Rochelle was the perfect combination of professional and relaxed, matched only by her determination, work ethic, and drive to make the dress fit perfectly for the occasion. I felt at ease with her but also confident that my custom-made gown would be unique. Rochelle also added touches that were unexpected but also necessary, such as buttons and fasteners for a removable train and wrist ties to keep the train from dragging on the gown after the ceremony. These were all completed at the last minute and were done quickly and correctly in minimal time.
Rochelle can be relied to to deliver top-quality hand-made garments, whether custom made or from her collection. She is awesome to work with, does a stellar job, and is clearly passionate about fashion and making the wearer feel his or her best. Thanks Rochelle!" - Sarah Lehrke
After unsuccessfully searching through many bridal stores and watching way too many Say Yes to the Dress episodes, I was feeling frustrated that I couldn’t find the Dress and I knew that I needed to find someone to make my perfect dress. I am so happy that my friend referred Rochelle. The dress making process was by far the easiest and the most relaxing part of the wedding planning. I had an idea of what I wanted, and Rochelle helped to create the rest. She was great at advising me upon what would look good on my body and what I could do within my budget. Since I live locally to Los Angeles and I was a bit picky about the lace I wanted, Rochelle suggested that we should pick out the fabric and jewels together. It was such a fun and exciting process. The dress and veil came out better than I could ever imagined or anticipated. It was amazing to see my dress come alive from her drawings. The construction of the dress was impeccable. The jewels were sewn individually by hand and Rochelle made sure that not one would come off.
I cannot say enough good things about Rochelle. Planning a wedding is stressful. Rochelle and her cheerful spirit made it a pleasant experience and she gave me more than what I asked for. She made my fairy tale wedding dress beyond perfect. I now go to Rochelle to make other custom pieces for events or just day to day. - Ana Lefebvre
