A bit about the artist:
Marta Madison has always illustrated fashion and turned her love of brides and gowns into a business. Marta started her studio three years ago where she meets brides to talk about their gowns and do initial sketches.
After you walk down the aisle... a full-colour bridal portrait of your wedding gown
"Marta’s unique bridal portrait service transforms any photo of your gown to a personal portrait painting. She will listen to your ideas and look at photos of your day to infuse special elements into a memorable A4 or A3 wedding portrait. She’ll paint your full length gown; your bouquet; your shoes, in any combination you wish. She has painted many brides and each painting is unique and glamorous, just like the brides. She has a real passion for weddings: the flowers, the giggles, the tears...especially the gowns. Marta says, “I just melt when I see a bride try on ‘the One’. It’s such a special moment and I am honoured to be able to immortalise these gowns in my paintings.”
How it works
Make an appointment at her studio or in your home, or, send her your best and favourite photos. From these photos, she will get a sense of the venue, the look of the dress, the lighting and discuss with you what is most important. She works up a few ideas and sends you a sketch and from there will start the painting. You will receive your painting within four weeks on high-quality watercolour paper, mounted but not framed. You will also receive complimentary cards with the image on to send to friends. Free delivery in Australia. Prices start at $180.00 for A4 and $250.00 for A3. Sample paintings below:
Drawn To Fashion offers a time-saving, sanity-saving ‘sketch my dress’ service.
Looking for that perfect gown can be a real challenge. Let's face it: we're all time poor and it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the hundreds of photos out there. It can also be hard to find time to try on lots of gowns.
Where do you start? If you have the perfect gown in mind but need a drawing to take to your dressmaker or to your favourite bridal shop to use as a guide, help is here! Drawn to Fashion offers a ‘sketch my dress’ service.
How it works
Text or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) your photos from Instagram or Pinterest and Marta will discuss the look you want in a free consultation. Marta will then take those ideas and draw the dress you dream of. Within 5 days you will receive a beautiful sketch by email or post to take to your dressmaker or bridal salon.
Marta has also put together a handbook, “Choosing the right dress for your shape”, available free when you book your consultation. It’s full of tips on colour, fabric choice, neck and hemlines and how certain styles can flatter your figure.
