After searching several stores for a wedding dress, a friend of mine suggested that I meet with Lilya at Couture by LK Design to talk about having a dress made. That turned out to be the single best piece of wedding advice I received! I brought her a few pictures of styles I liked and she immediately had great ideas. Lilya`s taste is impeccable, her attention to detail is amazing, and her construction skills are flawless. Plus, working with Lilya is so much fun! I loved going to her beautiful store for fittings and being part of the process of creating my wedding dress. I can't recommend Couture by LK Design highly enough. I ended up with a wedding dress that was not only stunning and perfectly constructed, but that also completely suited my personality
I remember a store I went to by in 1985 named Courture Fabrics (I think) and if this is the same people with just a slightly different name, they are a wonderful store. I had my wedding dress made using fabric I bought from their store. I absolutely love the fabric selections they had and it's the kind of fabrics you definitely want against your skin. Although I did not have a wedding gown (as much as I would have loved to), my wedding dress is a dress I can wear anywhere and the fabric is still just as nice as the first day I bought it.
if you're going to carytown for the first time, you definitely need to stop here. this is the best store for cool, creative gifts and toys. i go here everytime i go to carytown!! the staff are super friendly & helpful, and will always try and help you find what you're looking for. they have items in there i haven't seen anywhere else!
