Non-traditional wedding gown. Stunning!
I knew from the beginning that I wasn’t going to like a traditional wedding dress. I wasn’t planning to have a traditional wedding. I went to two dress appointments at boutiques in Seattle and I was very disappointed in the lack of “unique” gowns – something with color or pattern, with cap sleeves, ankle or tea-length, or a high neck. I was not interested in an ivory or white gown. I’m a pale person and getting married on the Oregon Coast I was concerned I would blend in with the background.
Enter Kiko. I found Kiko House of Couture through an article on Brides.com for the best Seattle bridal salons. A custom dress sounded like the perfect solution, but I was hesitant about the cost. I sent an inquiry to Kiko and he assured me we could work within my budget. I showed up with a handful of inspiration photos, a general idea of a shape, and desire for a floral pattern. Kiko made my vision come to life on the piece of paper in front of me.
After a series of fittings, I ended up with the most beautiful dress I’ve ever worn. Stunning in its simplicity and design. It fit me perfectly. It was no easy task. I wanted an A-line frame, tea-length gown, with a boat neck, cap sleeve (that would still allow me to dance!), covered buttons all the way down the back, pockets, all in a cotton floral fabric I discovered on Etsy.
Most importantly, throughout the process, I didn’t worry about the dress – whether I’d like it, whether it’d fit. Kiko demonstrated such skill, precision, and confidence in his art that it eliminated my anxiety. Such a relief as a bride. The process was all about accommodating my desires for the dress. That said, Kiko provided expert advice on what would best accent my shape and enhance the style of the dress – even as far as consulting on accessories and the groom’s suit. It was important to me that the dress still look like a wedding dress despite being non-traditional in almost every sense.
Along the way, we even managed to convince my mom to have Kiko design a mother-of-the-bride dress. This may have been an even bigger feat than my wedding dress! My mom is a petite 5ft with narrow shoulders and struggles to find dresses off the rack. She wanted something simple and flattering. My mom had even less inspiration/vision to provide Kiko, but he still managed to create a dress that fit her perfectly, with a lightweight jacket and ultra-classy bow. She was beaming and so happy with the result.
I deeply appreciate everything Kiko did for my mom and I and for being a part of my bridal experience. I will never forget his kindness, professionalism, fashion expertise, and genuine desire to make his clients happy. He’s an absolute master at his craft. I would happily refer any of my friends and family to Kiko for a custom look.Sent on 07/11/2020

Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom
Kiko's designs, craftsmanship, quality are the best! I was so happy with my dress for our daughter's wedding last year, I had Kiko make another for our son's wedding this month. He is very reasonable for couture. If you need a Mother of the Bride dress, Mother of the Groom dress or just a party dress go to Kiko!Sent on 06/28/2019

Kiko is a true artist. After searching relentlessly for a wedding dress that didn't exist, I decided to have a dress custom made. It turns out that there are very few designers who create courture bridal gowns in PNW, and I ended up finding Kiko via his amazing Google reviews. The only problem is that I live in Portland, and he's in Seattle. However, after a few phone calls and email exchanges, I went to meet him at his in home studio. I am an extremely picky customer, but Kiko assuaged all of my fears and listened carefully to my feedback. I had a tall order and a complicated design idea. I admit that I was nervous, when looking back I had no reason to be - my gown turned out better than I could have ever hoped for. It was worth every drive to Seattle, every fitting, every ounce of (unsubstantiated) worry. The material and craftsmanship are gorgeous and immaculate, and the finishing is stunning. My wedding dress is a real keepsake that I hope my daughter might want to wear someday. SO! If you have the trust, you should definitely let Kiko bring your vision to life. You won't regret it - he's a genius. Thank you Kiko!!!Sent on 02/26/2017
