Due to our exclusive luxury fabrics, this style is extremely limited. We recommend securing your gown as soon as you know it’s the one.
The perfect minimalist gown for the woman who adores luxury and simplicity. There is something so special about a bias cut silk gown and Arlo epitomises that effortless glamour. As part of our new ELIXIR collection we have designed some incredibly stylish capes that are designed to wear over Arlo. Winnie, Pierre and Yoko allow you to create your own look or multiple looks throughout the day and night.
Our Arlo gown is so buttery soft that you’ll never want to take it off.
The luxurious and sleek silhouette of the Arlo gown begins with a flattering soft V neckline and thin silk straps, complimented by adjustable gold hardware. Handmade with a double layer of matte Crepe de Chine silk, our Arlo gown has been bias cut for an alluring, figure hugging fit. Available with or without a train.

Your gown will be made to order, especially for you. Our Customer Service team will be in touch with you within days of you placing your order to discuss your measurements, height and size preference. It's important to note that our gowns are specifically designed for an easy, comfortable and versatile fit with luxurious stretch laces and stretch components in each design. Your measurements act as a guide and we make your gown to the dress size that each part of your body fits. This might mean your measurements have placed you as an all-over, equal size or your bust, waist, hip may differ in size categories. Don't worry, this is very normal and everyone is different.
Simply choose the dress size that best suits your general dress size in the size dropdown menu below. You can add your measurements, height and wedding date to your order and we will also confirm this with you after you place your order. If you do not have your measurements on hand whilst you are ordering, don't worry, we will get them off you at your earliest convenience.
Each style dress has specific measurements we need, some more than others, depending on how fitted it is.
For very urgent orders we offer ready-made gowns in some styles. These are made to standard all-over dress sizes and a standard height (155cm). If you are in need of an urgent, ready-made gown please email [email protected]
We are here to help you throughout the process. You can contact our Stylist team if you have any questions regarding styles and sizing - [email protected]
Measurements we need:
- Cup Size (what bra size do you wear)
- Under bust
- Shoulder to floor height (and shoe details)
Designer & Head Stylist Notes
Arlo is like liquid gold. Ultra luxe to wear and completely allows YOU to stand out. A very raw, stripped back gown that is so versatile to how you want to wear it styled up or down.
Arlo is a case of less is more for the modern bride who appreciates a polished yet effortless gown.
Would love to see Arlo with a red lip, loose bun and glossy skin.
Although Arlo was designed for the minimalist, we have offered the Roberta Cape (a great alternative to a veil!), the Mason Top and the Jac Robe as additions to wear over Arlo; you have SO many options for making your own look. It also means you can easily create a "ceremony" and "reception" look by adding or removing a piece.

Special Notes + Questions
You can wear adhesive cups or an invisible strap bra, however, the double layer silk allows you to wear nothing at all very easily.
What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.
Is the dress see-through at all?
No. The Crepe de Chine silk has a gorgeous milky velvet matt finish and the double layer allows you to feel confident wearing an all-silk gown. The weight of each layer of silk is 30 momme.
What does it feel like to wear?
Like soft velvety butter. So luxurious and lovely to wear. The double layer silk allows you to feel confident and effortlessly beautiful.
How long does it take for my dress to be made?
Generally our brides order between 6-24 months in advance. We require a minimum of 5 months to hand make our beautiful dresses. For urgent last minute orders please email [email protected]
How is my dress made?
All of our dresses are designed and hand made at our studio on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
Can I alter the design of my dress?
We would love to give every Grace girl what they request in terms of alterations, however each and every one of our gowns undergo intensive design processes to ensure that the fit, feel and balance of each dress is absolutely perfect. Therefore, we do not offer customisations, unless stated.
What if I lose/gain weight?
Our designs are crafted from luxurious French stretch lace, so often if you drop a size in weight, the original size still fits beautifully. If not, it is also very easy to have the dress altered by a professional seamstress if you would like it to be a little more fitted. Your measurements will determine which size you fall into.
Furthermore, we go to every effort to ensure your dress is the right fit. If you place your order well in advance of your wedding date then we can confirm your size right before your dress goes into production.
