SAMBA

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.

An ode to our cult classic Hollie gown, the new Samba gown from our B L A N C Collection features an utterly captivating and ultra flattering silhouette. Encapsulating the essence of the modern Señorita, our Samba gown was created for the Grace woman who is unlike any other. She is a natural beauty with an air of sophistication about her. She is passionate and daring; she is enchanting in every way.

The incredibly charming, body hugging Samba gown features the perfect combination of simplicity and jaw-dropping detail. This unique gown has been handmade in our Australian studio using an exquisite ivory geometric lace, which has been hand appliquéd over a stretch white mesh base, creating a very special two-tone effect and flattering contouring. The simplistic, stretch fitting bodice, which features a soft V neckline and fine adjustable, silk straps, can be accessorised with lace armbands for an optional statement. The Samba gown is finished with a sleek, figure hugging skirt with silk chiffon godets and a 40cm silk train, which create effortless, sophisticated movement.

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.

Designer & Head Stylists Notes

Fresh, Sophisticated & Sexy.

The BABE gown. As soon as you see someone in Samba it has that " WOW " factor from EVERY angle - people literally gasp. It's great on the bust, butt and waist and really does compliment the womanly figure whether you're curvy or not. The crispness of the white base and the sharpness of the ivory lace embroidery over the top creates such an interesting and cool detail. Samba is very youthful and cool whilst also being super classically beautiful and ultra sophisticated - the perfect mix right!

Throw on a soft fitted cropped leather jacket or plush long coat with killer heels! You can also wear Roberta with Samba and wrap it around the shoulders like a shawl.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
Fitted cups make Samba easy to wear and very supportive.

What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Samba gown is fully lined with a comfortable stretch lining.

What does it feel like to wear?
Sexy, sophisticated and so comfortable. Samba is ultra-stretchy, soft and luxurious 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 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.
