A bride wearing a gown by That Special Occasion

What inspired you to start That Special Occasion?
It was the beginning of the new millennium in 2000 and my biz partner Anna and I decided to quit our jobs and venture into the wedding business. We had met at part-time design school and weddings seemed to interest us both.

Describe yourself in 3 words!
Man of his words … oops, that’s 4!

What should a bride consider when choosing a bridal gown?
Comfort, as she will be in the dress for long periods of time. The gown should also complement her personality and enhance her body instead of being overpowering. She must also allocate a reasonable amount of budget for a specially designed gown.

How long does it take to make a dress with That Special Occasion?
2 to 3 months would be a good lead time for made-to-measure wedding gowns.

That Special Occasion is popular amongst brides in Malaysia. Why do they choose you?
We offer a personalised service as we specialise in made-to-measure. In that sense, a bride does get an opportunity to share some input into the design of her wedding gown. I’d also like to think that we are friendly and easy going, but only to brides who reciprocate! Our pricing levels are also competitive and relatively affordable.

Any advice for the bride on choosing their wedding gown designer?
Like choosing any vendor, there must be chemistry and mutual trust and respect.
