Noccé Custom Gown Design
If you have friends who've recently got married or if you've ever looked intocustom designed gowns, you have probably already heard the name Noccé.Pronounced 'No-Chay', the word was created to mean couture for an elegant evening and that's what they offer to Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge and areabrides - only without the designer price. At local shows, through photos of past weddings, and from visiting their gown shop, The Ring has had the opportunity to see first hand, the beautiful custom creations that Noccé Custom GownDesign produces for their brides.We sat down with designer, Ileana Poessy, and her daughter Axel to learnmore on the ins and outs of their custom design gown service. "What we likemost about the business is the fact that we are allowing someone to get exactly what they want, their ideal dream dress," Ileana explains. Having someone take your description of what you are looking for and turn it into areality - within a reasonable budget - is a huge draw for local brides. If youhave a photo or idea of a dress you'd like to duplicate, can't find what you'relooking for, or have unique sizing issues, you'll love this option. Axel understands the need for their services in the wedding gown industry for theseand other reasons, "I'm a very picky person myself, so I understand!"
