Alison was a dream to work with! Being from the USA and marrying a Japanese man (aren't they an awesome couple???!!) , she wanted a dress that fused the two cultures together. We found an inspiration picture and then made all of the changes that she wanted. The embroidery design was custom designed just for her dress as was the pattern. Charmeuse satin was used to give a light weight yet regal look to the dress.

Greetings from Japan! - Choosing Becky Armstrong as my dressmaker was the best decision ever. I emailed her with a picture. From there I wanted to incorporate a design that would best represent a marriage between two cultures. She patiently worked with me and responded promptly with samples, ideas and suggestions. I had a hard time visualizing how certain things would look but Becky took the time to explain the way fabrics and designs work together, hang, move etc... The end result was even better than I could have ever imagined. Her work is of the utmost quality. The dress looks amazing and fits beautifully. International shipping is tricky but Becky ensured that everything would arrive on time. I keep going into my room to open up the bag and look at my dress.
Actual quote from a Japanese friend: "I payed almost $8,000 for my dress and it didn't look half as nice."
I will find an event to go to just so I can have another dress made by Becky Armstrong.
