Wendy Makin has been designing wedding dresses for Australia's brides for over 25 years and in that time has built a reputation as one of the country's leading bridal wear designers. Wendy Makin wedding dresses, both her Bridal Couture collection and Ready to Wear range, and her international Bella Donna Bridal Collection are recognised for their quality and fit. She achieves this by using only fabrics and laces from proven suppliers and stringent quality control checks throughout the manufacture of each wedding dress. This quality of manufacture and design has made her one of Australia's most awarded bridal dress designers. Among her award for design are 5 Australian Fashion Design Awards as well as 6 ABIA awards for service. Her last award though she considers her greatest achievement.
