Chia Lieu is a true visionary in the world of bridal fashion. By the age of nine, Chia was a budding designer, reworking and creating hand-me-down clothes from her older brothers. Her designs impressed her parents so much, Chia was enrolled in a private school where she learned to master the necessary techniques in only two months. Little did she know, years later she would be the creative force and Founder behind Chia Lieu Designs, creating sophisticated, elegant and unique bridal gowns.

Each of Chia’s gowns reflect her innate style and meticulous eye for detail. Chia diligently searches for the perfect material and fabric for each dress and has built a successful business based on her impeccable taste and the quality of each custom-made gown.

Chia Lieu Designs are available at the Chia Lieu Bridal Store in Southern California, as well as select bridal boutiques throughout the country. Read less

It was my first day shopping for a dress. With only 5 months to go, I was already stressed out.

I went to one store where I noticed the quality was not so great. But because of my time crunch, I was just about ready to pick something there and be done with the search.

However, I wanted to try some other places that didn't require appointments. This is where Chia Lieu Bridal Couture came in. I called and asked if an appointment was necessary. The woman told me no, and that I could come in and try some dresses on.

The boutique is small, and when I asked to see the styles I wanted (strapless A-line), she had a few, but none really appealed to me. Then she went to a back area and told me she had dresses that were sent to her from other designers -- high quality, hand-beaded dresses. There were maybe 10-15 dresses. She said that everything on the rack was $300 because she needed to sell them to make room for more stock.

When I heard the price, I think my eyeballs dropped out of my head. I picked 3 dresses, and the first one really wowed me. I put it on and immediately knew it was the one. The fit and style was everything I wanted. And with the price, it absolutely could not be beat!

She also showed me some dresses online that are coming next month, but none appealed to me. I was absolutely happy with the dress I got. Best of all, I only need to get it hemmed!

Thank you Chia Lieu Bridal Couture for making my shop for the perfect dress so easy!

It was love at first sight meeting Chia Lieu. I saw her designs on various wedding sites online before visiting her boutique in Orange County. Chia Lieu Bridal boutique is welcoming and beautiful, and features original designs by Chia Lieu herself, as well as a few other designer gowns. Unlike most other bridal salons, Chia Lieu Bridal is not overwhelmingly filled with outdated gowns and unnecessary “décor.” I was planning my wedding from the San Francisco bay area, and Chia was very accommodating with my travel schedule. On my first visit, I tried on several gowns and realized I loved one particular design but with elements of another design. Because this is a designer-owned boutique, Chia offered to custom-make my gown incorporating my feedback. She was also very accommodating and open with regard to budget, offering more affordable options made with alternative fabrics. I had my gown and veil custom-made, and Chia was welcoming, friendly, and professional for each of my fittings. Another advantage of having my gown made by the designer was having fittings without the additional cost, time, and unreliability of alterations. She is also very knowledgeable about other wedding resources in the area because she regular attends expos. After my wedding day, Chia had my gown cleaned, and beautifully boxed (ready for display) for a reasonable price. Of all the wedding planning and decisions that I had to make, my experience at Chia Lieu Bridal was by far the most pleasant. Chia Lieu and her staff are friendly, personable, professional, and reliable.

It was so great to meet and work with Chia! She only carries two lines of dresses which include her own designs (featured in The Knot magazines) and Casablanca. Because she is a designer, she offers great advice on finding the perfect dress based on your physical features and style. She was able to measure me and order a custom fit sized gown so that I didn't need to make any additional alterations. The dress had an amazing fit. She did some minor alterations to make sure that the dress was perfect (i.e., add bra cups, add more tulle underneath for a better flow of the dress, and bustle). She is highly recommended!!!!!!

Chia Lieu is an awesome wedding dress designer!! She creates beautiful dresses made of the finest imported material. But if you happen to be one of those brides that just can't afford a dress made of imported silk (like me), she's also a registered retailer of Casablanca bridal dresses that are made of synthetic material at a budget price. Chia exceeded my expectations. I couldn't afford one of her couture dresses but we were able to customize my Casablanca dress by changing the shape of the dress and taking out different parts and putting in other details. We created a very customized dress that fit PERFECTLY at a VERY reasonable price. She has a great attention to detail. Even when I thought my dress fit perfectly and I was happy with it, she wasn't quite satisfied. She still went above and beyond to alter it to fit just right! She was always responsive when I called. If she couldn't talk at the moment because she was in a show in New York, she would still get back to me within the same day or 24 hours. She is very honest, dependable, and loyal. She gives brides her 100%.

Very nice service. The dress I ordered was beautifully beaded and under $1000. I got the dress in a timely manner and she allowed me to try on the dress as many times as I wanted. She was very accomodating and added pearls to my headpiece for me. The only thing is that my bustle (sp) broke after our first dance.
