Drawing inspiration from her grandmother, a fashion-enthusiast and trained designer, Tessa, the founder and designer of the brand, aims to cater to the modern woman. Her label showcases the elegant sophistication of Melbourne fashion, with a touch of her signature lace hem, offering a timeless and effortless look for debutantes on their special night. Tessa herself wore one of her designs in 2016, which sparked the idea to turn her passion for design into a business, offering four different debutante gowns and a custom option for a personalized touch.


With a natural inclination towards design, Tessa honed her skills under the tutelage of a close friend and accomplished dressmaker. Running a debutante boutique has been a learning journey for Tessa, and she expresses gratitude to her clients for supporting her in realizing her dream.
