The Poet gown from our B L A N C Collection was designed for the woman who is classically elegant and utterly chic. She is an effortless beauty who exudes an air of confidence and charm. She is unpredictable and irrefutably herself; she is our kind of woman.
Fusing a bold silhouette with romantic details, our intriguing Poet gown has been handmade in our Australian studio with a combination of exquisite stretch French laces and Crepe de Chine silk. Beginning with a flattering high neck with a cable embroidery trim down the centre front, the bodice of our Poet gown is lined and secured with a milky silk halter necktie, designed to showcase the back, arms and shoulders. The glamorous, figure-hugging skirt, with an elasticated waistband and short stretch lining, has been hand crafted with layers of cable stretch lace, striped French lace and geometric printed lace, which are complimented by fluid like silk frills.
Created for the Unique Bride with an affinity for high fashion and finer details, our show stopping Poet gown perfectly balances tradition with clean, modern accents. We envision our Poet gown sashaying effortlessly across the dance floor, creating unforgettable moments.

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 nipple
- Shoulder to waist
- Waist to floor
- Shoulder to floor height (and shoe details)
Each gown is made uniquely by hand and no two gowns will ever be the same. As such the placement of motifs may differ slightly and not appear exactly as on our models.
Designer & Head Stylists Notes
Poet has an edge, it's a showstopper with huge wow factor. The definition of luxury made wearable. Poet could be seen walking the runway and we have designed it to be super comfortable. Poet highlights your arms and shoulders and elongates your body. The silk high-neck and combination of lace panels and silk frills result in a classic gown made for having fun.
Throw on a tailored blazer or soft leather jacket for a chic after-party vibe.

Special Notes + Questions
You can wear adhesive cups for shape and support, however you can easily wear nothing. The silk frill effect gives the illusion of a bigger bust.
What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.
Is the dress see-through at all?
The bust of the Poet gown is fully lined, aside from the cable lace detailing down the centre of the bodice. The bottom half of the skirt is unlined to show off the incredible detail of the laces.
What does it feel like to wear?
The Poet gown is sophisticated, fun and made for dancing. The luxurious laces are stretchy and soft, making Poet incredible to wear.
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.
