Visited Kelima while she was having her sample sale. I was able to find a dress that fit me very well which made the buying experience very easy! There were minor tailoring changes that needed to be made to the bust area which she accommodated. I cannot wait to wear the dress!

Kelima was a dream to work with! She was very patient and knowledgeable with my fitting and custom work with her Wardrobe Therapy service. She was able to help me find the most flattering fit and spent many hours making sure my gown fit perfectly. My dress had many layers so she worked diligently to make sure that each and every one was perfect. She really works one on one with you, listens to all of the things you are looking for, and gives you exactly what you asked for. She is really knowledgeable about the way dresses fit and how they work. I learned a lot about how they are made structurally through her guidance.
I really enjoyed my experience at her store because it was an intimate environment and wasn't too busy, so I received her full attention. It was like working with a very good friend. The day of, my gown was completely comfortable. I highly recommend working with Kelima!

I painstakingly went through the process of trying the large, more well known wedding dress vendors before I set foot into Kelima K. What a difference! Kelima cares, not only about the artistry and perfection of the wedding dresses she designs and makes, but also about each individual customer she has. She wanted to know my story. I had such a wonderful experience with Kelima K. My dress was absolutely perfect and the process of working with Kelima was so enjoyable. It was such an honor to support her small business and to get married in one of her beautiful creations.
I have had the pleasure to work with Kelima on numerous occasions. Not only is she talented, she has a calming presence and is very gracious. Her dresses are a unique mix of dreamy romantic and fashion forward styles. I highly recommend Kelima to the bride to be who is looking for a timeless and beautiful wedding dress.
