Due to our exclusive luxury laces, this style is extremely limited. We recommend securing your gown as soon as you know it’s the one.
Designed with a bohemian-luxe silhouette and Parisian chic details, our Colette gown is perfect for the traditional, hopeless romantic who wants a modern, yet timeless gown. With a whimsical, free flowing shape and statement accents, including a sultry low back, the Colette was made for the effortlessly cool and elegant GLL girl.
Beginning with a fitted stretch French lace bust, complimented by delicate spaghetti straps, with statement lace sleeves, which can be worn on or off the shoulder, the Colette is a beautifully understated gown that flatters all shapes. The highlight of the Colette is the alluring, low, scooped back, which is perfectly balanced by the fine straps. The flowing silk chiffon skirt, which falls naturally from under the bust, features a subtle French lace trim and side splits to create movement. The simple skirt then extends into a 40cm, 80cm or 120cm 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]

Special Notes + Questions
You wear can a low back strapless bra or adhesive cups with the Colette gown for shape and support. However, it has been designed with a fitted bodice, so it is suitable for all bust sizes.
What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.
Is the dress see-through at all?
The Colette gown is fully lined.
What does it feel like to wear?
The Colette is a beautiful and comfortable dress to wear. It has been handmade with a lightweight stretch French lace, with no restrictive boning or structure.
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.
