Freja Designer Dressmaking

"When the day came to see my finished dress I was caught off-guard. I had grown accustomed to seeing only approximations of my dress and a template in calico (beige and scratchy), a lining with no skirt, a bodice with no arms. To suddenly see it hanging there on the door frame, silent, almost shy of its beauty, lace tumbling down its corset, the sheer silk of its sleeves looping at the cuff - it stopped me in my tracks. And yes, it was gorgeous and glamorous, flamboyant and extravagant, elegant and sophisticated and exquisitely-made. It moved as I moved, held me and freed me, cosseted me and displayed me all at the same time. It breathed drama and elegance, exuded good taste, and, if only for one day, it was absolutely and utterly me."

Mette Baillie is an award winning Danish designer dressmaker who fell in love with Edinburgh at first sight. She launched Freja Designer Dressmaking in 1998 as a stylish and ethical alternative to the mass-produced bridal wear, evening dresses and women’s suiting available on the high street.  She also worked in a Copenhagen fashion house before moving to Edinburgh and Freja Designer Dressmaking was born.

With the help of her great team, Mette has built a reputation for beautiful designs and attentive service. The Freja team work closely with each client to create pieces that showcase the wearer’s personality and Mette promises meticulous attention to detail. Each piece is first made in a cotton toile, before being fitted to find the perfect length, line, cut and placement for details like pockets and fastenings.

In 2009, 2012 and 2014, Mette was crowned Bridal Dress Designer Retailer of the year at the prestigious VOWS, the Scottish wedding industry service awards. Nominated for the award by her customers for five consecutive years, Mette and her team are proud of the close relationship they build with all of their customers as they involve them in the design process.
