The Designer Experience
Custom design service for a Chic Bride looking for a one of a kind dress
Chic Bridals Designer Experience gives the bride an opportunity to work one on one with the designer herself to create a unique design.
Featuring Chic Bridals X Designer Noor Alkhalili
Like the process we take designing our own chic bridal collection, we can do the same to design yours! Whether it’s a small addition to an existing design or something from scratch you will work 1 on 1 with our lead designer Noor to ensure your vision comes true.
The Designer Experience Process
Experience our current Chic Bridals Collection
To begin the designer experience, brides are invited to an appointment at our Retailer Boutiques. Working alongside their team of Stylists, you will have the opportunity to experience our current collections, allowing you to best decipher the most flattering shapes, styles, laces, embellishments and design features for you. At the conclusion of this appointment your stylist will refer you to the Designer Experience, and Designer will be in-touch to arrange your customised consultation.
