About

A true passion for elegance and quality

Fashion, both design and production has been my passion since I can remember. As a little girl, I couldn't be left unattended around curtains, table cloths or anything that could possibly be turned into a dress. At the age of twelve, I designed my first dress and haven't stopped since.

I used to sell my dresses through my own shop in Woodstock (Oxfordshire), and built up a loyal client base whom I now serve from a small design studio in the heart of London. My customers vary from corporate lawyers to personal trainers to full time homemakers, of all body sizes and types, but sharing an appreciation for elegance and long-lasting quality.

I never let my designs be compromised through poor materials or workmanship - I own nine sewing machines, all of which serve a particular purpose, and the stitching is always better quality than that typically found on high street clothing, and I hand check all fabrics to ensure quality and perfection. My dresses will last for years, as my own overflowing wardrobes will attest to!

While my methods and fabrics have evolved, that first dress passion remains embossed in all my collections to date.

Frequently asked questions
Can you add sleeves or make a dress a longer length than that shown in the photos?

Yes, depending on the dress, this is normally possible, but may involve a modest extra cost, please contact me for a quote

Can you make a dress with one of your dresses' fabrics and another's design?

Yes, this is normally possible, provided that the fabric is suitable for the design, i.e. a cotton print dress can be made with another cotton print, but it may be difficult to make it with a stretch velvet. Please contact me and I can give you a quote, this normally does not cost any extra

I attach a photo of a dress that I love the look of, can you make one just like it?

I am happy to do minor variations on my own designs to meet customers' needs and tastes, but I cannot do completely new designs for a single order, you should contact a local dressmaker

Can I return the dress if I do not like it or it does not fit?

You can return any standard sized dress, provided it is unworn (except for trying on). I will refund you the full price you have paid including shipping, but you are responsible for the cost of shipping back to me, unless the dress is defective, damaged in some way, or was delivered late.

Customised or made-to-measure dresses cannot be returned unless they are defective, damaged or late to arrive, but I do guarantee that made-to-measure dresses are accurate to the measurements given, and in the unlikely event that you do have a problem with a dress please contact me, and I will do my best to resolve matters in a fair way.

How long will my dress take to arrive?

Please note that every dress is made to order, so I need time to both make the dress and ship it. The time taken to make the dress is one to three weeks depending on the dress, please see individual listings for details. Shipping time to the UK is up to one week (often shorter), and to the US is up to two weeks. The details for other countries is detailed under the 'Policies' section on my shop homepage.

I do my best to ensure that shipping times are kept to, but it is not entirely under my control. Nonetheless, if a dress is delivered late I will refund your shipping, or give you a full refund and cover your return shipping if you wish to return the dress.

How do I tie your infinity dresses? Is there a guide?

I have done a YouTube video demonstrating the various styles, if you search YouTube for Valdenize Soares you should find it, or you can contact me for the link

Could you make me matching pocket squares to go with your dresses?

Certainly, these are inexpensive if bought with a dress, please contact me for details

Could you send me a fabric sample?

Yes, please send me a message detailing the fabric or fabrics that you would like. There is a modest charge to cover postage and packing, and I will set up a custom listing for you to pay for this.
