The Experience

La Maison Designer Experience gives the bride an opportunity to work one on one with the designer herself to create a unique design.

Featuring Chic Bridals X Designer Noor Alkhalili

Like the process we take designing our own chic bridal collection, we can do the same to design yours! Whether it’s a small addition to an existing design or something from scratch you will work 1 on 1 with our lead designer Noor to ensure your vision comes true.

The Designer Experience Process

Step 1

Experience our current Chic Bridals Collection

To begin the designer experience, brides are invited to an appointment at our Boutique. Working alongside our team of Stylists, you will have the opportunity to experience our current collections, allowing you to best decipher the most flattering shapes, styles, laces, embellishments and design features for you. At the conclusion of this appointment your stylist will refer you to the Designer Experience, and Designer will be in-touch to arrange your customised consultation.

Step 2

Meet the designer

Your first consultation with Alkhalili involves a one-on-one Virtually over a Zoom Call.She’ll be excited to hear what you have in mind and answer any questions. Together you will work through your design ideas and experiment with shapes, silhouettes, fabrics, and embellishments. She’ll walk you through our custom design process, timeline, pricing and show you examples of our work in detail.

Please note the $150 consultation fee is to be paid prior to your appointment.
