In-Studio Stories: Designer Dresses

The Atelier is full of wedding gowns!  We love to occasionally share windows of what we are working on in the studio. Here is a look at a particular client’s wedding gown we are currently working on.

It is a beautiful Oscar de la Renta wedding gown. We are working on some alterations for the bride. Some studios may be hesitant on working on such an expensive gown, but at JOA we are very comfortable working on designer wedding gowns with a higher price label. Our experienced and highly skilled team can handle these gorgeous wedding gowns with ease.

Brides know they can trust us with the best designer dresses.  They have brought us their gowns designed by Galia Lahav, Claire Pettibone, Jenny Peckham, Liancarlo, Matthew Christopher, Naeem Khan, Robert Bullock, Anne Barge, Carolina Herrera, Lela Rose, and more.
