Couture By Tess is a custom couture label with designs in development years in advance. Our process starts with hand-drawn illustrations as well as state of the art perfection from Bruce Xia with computer assisted drafting for both Tess' designs as well as Bruce's. The patterns are created and fabrics selected. The gowns are then completed with meticulous detail averaging 8-10 months for completion.
Simple Alterations (basic hemming) and bustle systems are provided by Tess & her husband Joe, FREE OF CHARGE as a service to her Couture By Tess clients. We also provide the use of hoops, petticoats and a beautiful selection of veils, tiara',s birdcages, etc., to complete the brides ensemble. No extra charge, the bride returns the pieces after their wedding. In-Stock purchases which require major alterations will receive a sliding scale fee and discounted fees based on the dress price. We want you to have a beautiful fit without stressing your wedding dress budget.
In keeping true to the nature of a couture line, we do not create reproductions of any kind. Please do NOT bring a photo of a design you want us to copy to your Couture By Tess private appointment.

Tess began designing in 1981 and began following the wedding industry. She found many of the wedding dress designs offered in the USA fell flat on originality compared to the European and middle eastern designers. In 2013, she started her own bridal boutique drafting designs for her fashion label and partnered with master designer, Bruce Xia of Bruce Xia Couture. See the About page for more.
