​​​​Where is your company based? 

Jocelyn Coles New York HQ is in the quaint town of Chatham, VA. We're south of Lynchburg, VA, and north of Greensboro, NC.  


I've found my dream wedding dress! Can you make an exact copy for a cheaper price? No. If you've found your dream dress, congratulations, you should buy it! We're in the business to create original designs. We don't copy other designers; it's unethical.


What is couture? I just thought I could just walk in and buy off-the-rack. Couture is made to measure clothing for an individual. It involves hundreds of hours of design development using 100% silk and time-consuming haute couture techniques directed by a highly skilled fashion designer. 


How long will it take to create my Mix + Match bridal gown? We require a 6 to 9 month lead time for Mix + Match collection.


Do I need an appointment? Yes. Jocelyn Coles New York is a fashion house offering a different kind of bridal shop experience. We actually design our wedding gowns in-house. Brides meet with the designer to design their custom, couture wedding dresses.


Do you offer wedding dress alterations? No. We are a collection based couture bridal design company.


What sizes do you create? Our Mix + Match bridal gown size range is 0 to 12. Redesign dresses are available in all sizes.


I'm having a costume/theatrical themed wedding. Can you design my costume themed wedding dress? No. We don't specialize in costume design.


Can you email me photos? No. Because of copyright, we don't email photos. But you're welcome to view our bridal gowns in person.


Do you do rush orders? No. Real couture bridal is a time-consuming process. If you have limited time, we recommend Redesign.

 

Jocelyn Coles deliberately creates bridal collections of equilibrium that define classic, grace; with a modern edge. She is passionate about the simplicity of a classic silhouette but uses juxtaposition seamlessly with unexpected European textured textiles, such as alençon and re-embroidered French laces. She also uses haute couture techniques which includes time-consuming exquisite hand beading, delicate lace appliqués, and embroidered details to make the wedding gowns more intricate with a modern approach. She utilizes the art of manipulating fabric to achieve a more elaborate aesthetic.
