An exclusive tour in NZ, showcasing Lainee Hermsen's bespoke collection


The tour offers New Zealand brides a fun, enjoyable and private experience, a 70 minute fitting and consultation with Lainee, including advice, design work and 15 gowns to try.

Lainee welcomes you to try each of  the gowns and discuss design options with her to suit you. If you wish, we can arrange measurements and photos of you in your favourite gowns, which will be emailed to you afterward. Lainee will use these, along with any previous ideas you may have in your scrapbook when following up and designing your perfect gown.

Your allocated time is 70 minutes at a cost of $30.00. Contact Lainee at any time to ask questions and to book your preferred time.

Further Information:

You are welcome to bring mum, sisters or friends.

Please arrive clean and without a lot of makeup or tanning lotion/spray as these can mark the gowns.

Gown prices range from $1500 to $2800 depending on the design and are custom made to fit you.

These will be sent directly to your door within 12 weeks, or you can visit Lainee in her studio in Nelson to pickup your gown.

Most of the sample gowns are size 8 to 12. If you are outside of this size range, Lainee can still do the consult with you and advise you on styles and shapes that will best suit.
