Great place for unique dresses!
If you’re looking for a dress in the Chicago area, I highly recommend Daniela at Dame Couture! We visited about 5 stores, mostly downtown, and we all agreed we had by far the best experience at Dame. It’s a small, independent store so you’re group will have the place to yourself and one on one attention which makes it a more relaxed and enjoyable experience compared to some of the larger stores downtown. The dress selection is great (I ended up choosing a dress from the Truvelle line) and Daniela is very sweet and fun to work with. She made it a super comfortable process. Highly recommend!Sent on 10/30/2018

The dress you chose was just right for you - unique and modern, with a touch of romance in that gorgeous train! Thank you for making Dame a part of your destination wedding in California. Congrats on your marriage!

Dresses as unique as you are
After visiting dozens of bridal shops I finally came across Dame Couture and met Daniela who was able to meet with me and create the perfect dress for my style, theme and detailing. I came in with interest for a tea length dress and she was able to design and alter a gorgeous dress that surpassed my expectations. She was a pleasure to work with and her shop is a wonderful intimate place where she gives you her full attention to make sure you leave with the dress of your dreams. She even created a pocket that allowed me to access my diabetic insulin pump so my blood sugars were just on point as my dress. I highly recommend Dame Couture if you are searching for a unique dress to fit your unique style while working with extreme talent, patience, consideration, attention to detail all in a place that makes you feel comfortable and confident that you have finally found the right place to make your dream happen.Sent on 11/28/2018
Dame Couture's reply:Dear Maren, thank you so much for your kind words! I am so honored to have helped you in the process of finding the right dress for you! I know it was a struggle for you finding the right dress at first, but with your vision we were able to create the dress of your dreams! It was a pleasure working with you, and I cannot wait to see your photos. Congrats on your marriage!

I can’t say enough about how great of an experience I had working with Dani at Dame Couture. I came in not quite sure what style dress I was looking for. Dani helped me select a variety of dresses and seemed to instinctively know what my style was! She really took the time to learn about our wedding day and was so fun and sweet to work with! My experience dress shopping at Dame felt both personal and enjoyable! On top of having a variety of unique and gorgeous dresses, I felt so confident in Dame Couture handling alterations for me as well. Such a wonderful store and a great fit for anyone looking for a really special and personal experience!Sent on 08/10/2017
We simply love working with Daniela! Her gowns are absolutely beautiful and she seems to have something for everyone. As a vendor, we love connecting with great people in our industry and we are so very happy to have connected with Daniela at Dame Couture. It is always fantastic to send her a photo that a bride has sent us of a dress that we may not know to well and she will take the every effort to either find the designer or something that closes matches and all within budget! We adore you Daniela and look forward to working with you again soon!
