Catherine Langlois is a Toronto based custom bridal gown designer. She designs wedding gowns that strike delicate balances between a desire for ease of movement and the exquisite vision each bride hopes to create.
Catherine's gowns, custom made to her clients' measurements and proportions, are elegant and refined. She specializes in pure silk fabrics from around the world. Small touches of schiffli lace, beaded chiffon or embroidered tulle enhance her designs. Even her more traditional boned and crinolined gowns are as effortless to wear as they are to put on. Many brides may feel intimidated to have a gown custom made. Catherine allays these fears by providing a tranquil and professional atmosphere in her studio. "My clients find the experience creative and rewarding", she says, "this allows their ideas to really blossom into exactly what they want - something that can't always happen in a store."
