Our Story

Helena Couture Designs is a multi-award-winning bridal label specializing in one-off made-to-measure bridal and evening dresses at an affordable price.

The bridal label Helena Couture Designs was established in 1999 on the Gold Coast.  After Helena Karkovic finished her Diploma of Applied Arts in Fashion Design she saw a need for unique, individual and personalized excellence in every creation.  Since then she has accrued many years of experience in the bridal industry, hundreds of happy clients and sixteen awards during 2007-2015 from her peers.

Helena shares in each bride’s excitement throughout the entire creative journey; from the conceptual design, through the production process to the final creation.  Creating your bridal gown becomes a memorable experience you will treasure.

The gowns are designed individually, taking into consideration the bride’s character and figure shape. Each unique creation flatters the bride’s figure and enhances her personality.

Helena is not a dressmaker, but a couturier or artisan.  This shows in her eye for detail from superior fit and hand detailing; her love for luxurious fabrics to compliment the style of dress; exquisite laces from Europe, Asian and the US; stunning Swarovski Crystals and more; assures the bride will only receive the highest quality bridal gown with the most professional and personalized service.

An extensive array of jewellery to compliment the bridal gown is also available at an affordable price for both the bride and her entourage.

Helena will be only too happy to help you with other highly reputable and professional associates within the bridal industry.

Please accept this invitation to meet Helena to design and create your wedding dress; as unique and individual as you.
