Kamera Obscura is a bespoke dress design company based in London. Set up in 2003 by designer-maker Martine Abate, it offers a unique wedding dress and occasion/eveningwear service tailored exclusively to the client.
Every Kamera Obscura creation is made to measure, the result of a close collaboration between client and designer. The emphasis is on imaginative use of fabric, exquisitely cut and with details chosen to reflect the client’s personality. Brides-to-be come to Kamera Obscura for a one-off wedding dress that will make them feel unique and special - so much that they often don’t just wear them on the big day, but at other social events as well. Accessories can be specially made to enhance the finished outfit. Whether it’s a little black dress or a winter coat, the same care goes into every piece.
Starting with an initial appointment, everything is designed and handmade at Kamera Obsura’s London studio, using a wide range of carefully chosen silks and other beautiful fabrics. Bespoke daywear is also available.
