When you go shopping for a wedding dress, you'll likely discover an array of local bridal salons stocked with hundreds of wedding dress styles and bridal accessories for nearly every bride. At your wedding dress shopping appointment, you'll meet with and share your unique style preferences with your bridal stylist, who will pull a few dresses for you to try on. From there, you'll visit a local tailor or seamstress to begin minor to extensive alterations so your dress fits your body beautifully.

Most brides will find "the one" gown for their wedding day after shopping at a few bridal salons leading up to their big day; however, if you desire a dream wedding dress that is a one-of-a-kind style you can't find anywhere else, you'll want to have a custom dress designed just for you. From the initial consultation to the final fitting, creating a couture wedding gown with your body type and custom measurements in mind is an experience you'll never forget!

Introducing: Panache Atelier by Sahar Fotouhi

Renowned bridal salon Panache Bridal – with three locations in Southern California, as well as a warehouse offering designer dresses at a discount – has their very own talented bridal designer to design wedding dresses for clients who desire the handmade gowns of their dreams. The talented Sahar Fotouhi of Panache Atelier is sure to create a dream dress for your big day, while of course keeping your personal style and specific measurements in mind.

"I believe beauty blossoms in the presence of confidence. My mission is for all brides to feel their intrinsic beauty and immeasurable worth from within. When this natural radiance shines brightly, it reflects an enchanting beauty from the inside out."

For a tighter wedding budget, you can work with a local seamstress to create custom gowns at a variety of price points; however, the custom wedding dress cost for a gown designed by Sahar Fotouhi will be best for couples planning a luxurious big day. Creating a gown from vision and sketch to the final design will require an investment, but for many brides, it will absolutely be well worth it to be the only bride in the world wearing your gown.

The Custom Design Process with Sahar Fotouhi

During your custom wedding dress appointment and in-person design consultation, you will experience the unique opportunity to create your dream dress together with Sahar Fotouhi. From initial sketches through multiple fittings, your wedding gown will be perfected in real time to reflect your true body, as well as bring to life the inspiration for your wedding vision.

"My work is three-dimensional paintings and moving sculptures… basically, art installations interweaved into the white canvas of a wedding dress," shares the designer. "My art is meticulously designed to enhance the natural beauty of the bride that I am working with. Therefore every dress is as unique as the body of the brides that I am working with."

Together, with Sahar’s expertly crafted couture experience and final touches by your designer’s own hands, you will come away with a unique wedding gown that is a true reflection of you. To take the first step, contact Panache Bridal of Beverly Hills at 310.860.9221 to book your appointment!

Her initial experience with fashion began in her motherland. Born and raised in Iran, a country with a rich history of art and architecture, Sahar was deeply inspired by the colors and complex patterns in Persian mosaic art and miniatures. Her travels took her through Italy and France where she explored the exotic and luxurious contemporary world of fashion, and she attended Parson’s School of Design in New York City.

In addition to designing custom wedding dresses, she is the Creative Director and powerhouse behind the revival of the contemporary Los Angeles-based clothing brand, Frankie. In the past, she's worked for various couture and high-end brands including Thom Brown, Tory Burch, and Marc Jacobs, as well as Max Azria Atelier.

Sahar’s multicultural life experience was the primary drive behind her creation of ‘A New Look for Women’. She is committed to bringing fresh concepts to bridal design by creatively integrating the classical and contemporary worlds. She believes in an eclectic design language which allows for elements of the old to be recreated in a new way that evokes a bold and modernized classic look within contemporary fashion.
