2015 Fleur Collection

This took much much longer than expected but finally my new RTW Bridal Collection is out! My most romantic collection just yet with my distinctively clean polished aesthetic. Here you will be seeing a medley of beautiful florals, ultra feminine lace and soft tulle skirts.

I finally got to collaborate with my cousin Pam Sta. Cruz who was also studying in San Francisco while I studying Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. And of course my nth project with Kris Bacani (she did my make-up during my wedding!) was then studying in New York. Back then we were all wide eyed students with former degrees in business determined to pursue each of our artistic dreams. And now I’m just giddy happy to share the fruits of our labor.

The Ultimate Long Distance Relationship between Bride and Designer

c6 (1) copyKimberly is a blushing bride from Seattle, Washington, who decided to have her wedding gown custom-made in Manila but is having her wedding in Cagayan De Oro. Despite the logistical challenges, honestly creating her wedding gown was not at all stressful. Kimberly was organized from the very beginning (which I immensely appreciate!!!) and what she envisioned for her wedding was crystal clear. Kimberly’s champagne gown has a tulle skirt with beaded white sequined-lace. I met her for the first time just 9 days before her wedding and she had her very first fitting the very same day. Like magic (with a sprinkle of meticulous production planning) her gown fitted like a glove.

Love love this message from Kimberly!

Hello Camille*:) happy

How are you? I can’t believe that it’s been six months since I visited your lovely boutique. I can still remember the first time I saw my dress and how anxious I was if it would fit perfectly. Every detail turned out beyond my expectations. To this day, I’m still amazed it only took a month for you to make my beautiful wedding dress. Thank you so much for everything and I wish you all the best! 

Kimberly*:) happy

Love at First Fit

It’s no wonder Missy is a such a sweet thoughtful person, her family is so warm and welcoming! And I had the great pleasure meeting her mom, her MOH/ sister Marla (ahem even the new boyfriend) ;) Of course I made their gowns too ;)

Each fitting was always filled with new stories (plus a lot of chismis)! It was nice to have this amazing connection with their family. They’re the type of family anyone would be lucky to be a part of, absolutely just about anybody can tell that they have a quirky yet loving relationship.

Missy is wearing a design from my RTW Collection. We were actually in the process of completing this gown when Missy came in for an appointment. Initially she was describing the type of gown that she wanted and I just happened to be working on a gown that may just fit her vision. It was the first wedding gown she ever fitted and it really was just meant to be for her. She looked stunning, exactly how a blushing bride should radiate. =)

From Singapore to Tagaytay: Abigail’s Destination Wedding Dress

Abigail is a blushing bride from Singapore. Since her very first fitting, which is for her mock dress, the fit was already perfect. We’ve had a few more fittings after that but each time there was no need to alter anything. :)) Every single one of our fittings was not really to check the fit but to see the progress of her wedding gown and how it was becoming the gown Abby and I envisioned. She actually looks pretty demure (naks!) in her photos but we had a lot I mean A LOT of comedic moments at my boutique. ;)

A Fresh Wedding Dress for Rose’s Outdoor Wedding

Camille Garcia Wedding DressDr. Rose is smart (she took her residency at PGH, Ryan, the groom, also took his residency there) and beautiful (with or without make-up and even in casual clothes). Upon meeting her, I already felt that we reached common ground since my parents are both doctors too. To say that medicine is tough is an understatement.

Every fitting was always easy and we experienced zero road bumps along the way. During her final fitting, we were in complete awe. She looked so beautiful in her wedding gown, literally her face lit up with this giddy kilig smile and her eyes widened (actually not just hers, including ours too). It was really one of those magical moments, her wedding gown was simply perfect on her.Camille Garcia Wedding DressSharing this ultra thoughtful message from the Doc.

Hi Ms. Camille! Sorry for this very late upload of our wedding photos. We couldn’t thank you enough, you and Ms. Rona, for being a part of this very important milestone in our lives. The wedding gown was truly a masterpiece. Ryan was astonished and in awe when he saw me wearing that beautiful, simple and elegant wedding dress you made… I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family. Again thank you and more power! God bless you! – Ryan and Rose

Ivy’s Bold and Beautiful Red Debutante Gown

Gorgeous Debutante: Ivy

It was such a pleasure meeting Ivy and her mom, although I just witnessed snippets of their bond as mother and daughter. It’s easy to tell that they’re authentically best friends. =) To accentuate Ivy’s red gown, we used a custom laser cut which we beaded to add extra sparkle.

Unique Ready-to-Wear Wedding Gowns

This beautiful bride is actually wearing a bridal gown from my Ready to Wear Bridal Collection. =) I do have some gowns posted in here though a lot of the gowns are actually sold before I even have the chance to post the photos. So if you’re one of those brides who want to know instantly (like right now!) how amazing you can look like on your wedding day, drop by and fit a few of my gowns. You’ll never know, it may just be a perfect fit!

Some brides ask how do we do it? We can alter the gown to fit your body like a glove. And NO I do not use those adjustable corset back with adjustable string, which is typical of rented gowns. I’m more than willing to open up the gown and make the necessary adjustments for you.

Others ask if I repeat the designs, actually I don’t. Each RTW wedding gown is made only once in the same material, lace and design. Even if it’s an RTW gown, it’s YOUR wedding gown and it should still be unique. =)
