This is it!

Mia is one of my blushing brides who availed the Comprehensive Package with Glass Garden Events Venue. Instead of opting to have a custom-made gown that’s included in the package, she opted for one of my ready to wear gowns. I never actually had a chance to shoot or post this gown online because it was swept away before I even had a chance to. Surprisingly this happens a lot, there are times the dress is only halfway through and a bride just connects with it instantly. It’s like knowing instinctively “this is it!”

Of course I love all the gowns I create, though admittedly this is really special for me since this is made in one of my favorite French Lace designs.

Camille Garcia Feature, Inspirations Magazine

A few months ago, I launched my Fleur Collection, a collection of Ready to Wear wedding gowns and was so happy to see a couple of my designs featured in the latest issue Inspirations Magazine! It’s available in bookstores and magazine stands nationwide.

Each design is so unique from the rest because I really wanted to create different gowns for different women. Obviously most “real” women do not have statuesque supermodel bodies (if you do then that is super awesome!!) so this collection definitely represents individuality since I really wanted each gown to have it’s own personality. What also compelled me to create RTW bridal gowns is the frustration of wanting to create designs that originated from bursts of inspiration, instead of leaving it on paper I just had to bring them to life.

Finding the “One”

Hansel and Kristine booked the Comprehensive Package at the Glass Garden Events Venue. The Comprehensive package came with the Bridal Gown (by yours truly of course!), Photo & Video, OTD Coordination, Lights among other wedding must-haves. Brides always ask, “what kind of gown is included?” Of course I always sketch a totally unique design for every new bride, I don’t use template or repeat the exact same thing twice even if the bride opted a Ready-to-wear wedding gown from my collection.

When Kristine came to my boutique with her mom, we suggested to try some of the gowns so she can have a better idea of what she wanted. Call it fate or luck, we all knew that the first gown she fitted was the “One.” We were in awe!!! She absolutely looked beautiful and comfortable in this gown! Honestly, isn’t that what matters the most in wearing your wedding gown?! Beauty: check check check! This gown was supposed to be part of my new collection, we just completed it and I haven’t even had the chance to take a single photo of this gown but it was immediately swept away.

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.

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. =)

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. =)
