Kiko as a person and designer is just seamless. So professional and kept the process stress free, fun, and even with a busy schedule he made me feel very special. He did a really good job of honoring my style and adding his very experienced and tasteful recommendations.
I came to him after exhausting myself in dressing rooms every weekend. I knew EXACTLY what I wanted but was completely defeated by the ginormous price tags. I showed him a picture of an Inbal Dror dress – a GORGEOUS intricate dress made out of delicate lace … and of course cost more than a house. He looked at what I thought would be an impossible task with my budget and he didn’t even flinch. He was completely confident that it was do-able. He educated me through the whole process making sure I approved of every price tag and stitch he made. He had a ton of shortcuts to keep costs down without compensating the quality. He was very thorough and consulted me on details I would never think of, from heel height to earring length, and even how to travel with the dress. I could tell he’s done this for a long time and knows exactly what he’s doing. In the end I ended up with a dress that was affordable and better than the original!! It’s the most beautiful dress I’ve ever seen – much less wear!
I absolutely recommend Kiko to any bride looking for the best from the best without having to sacrifice your budget.

Working with Kiko on my wedding gown was wonderful!

I was searching constantly and having no luck finding a dress that I both liked and could afford. When I tried things on, even if I liked the style, I was often unimpressed with the quality of the fabric and stitching. Then there was trying to imagine what it would really look like after being altered, and I was just never sure I was going to love the finished product.

As soon as I started working with Kiko, the stress of the dress hunt was gone! I wanted a dress that was both elegant and simple, and one I would be comfortable moving around in. Kiko made me a custom dress that fit me perfectly--size, shape, personality, and budget.

Kiko is a master of both design and craftsmanship. I sent him some photos of dresses I liked, along with a description of how I imagined combining elements I'd seen to create the perfect dress for me. At our first meeting, applying his artistry and expertise to my vision, he drew a sketch and brought my idea to life right before my eyes! We then met regularly as he started creating the dress from the inside out, making sure that every piece fit perfectly. Kiko is extremely organized and the dress was ready in plenty of time before the wedding. The quality is superb.

I didn't spend half my wedding budget on my dress, but I did feel like a million bucks. My dress was so comfortable, I danced all night long! But if you want a super complicated design, he can do that too. If having a dress made for you has ever crossed your mind, you will not regret meeting with Kiko for a consultation. I just assumed that I would not be able to afford couture; but Kiko's prices are very competitive. And you get exactly what you want! Priceless!

Being able to wear my very own unique, high-quality dress on my wedding day was priceless and made me feel like a queen. I cannot recommend Kiko highly enough!

Another wedding, another AMAZING mother of the bride dress!

Kiko made me a stunning mother of the bride dress last year for the wedding of one of my twin daughters. My second daughter got married this year resulting in a second beautiful creation by Kiko.
It is always a true pleasure to work with Kiko. He is a very talented “couturier,” he knows what he is doing, listens to you and comes up with ideas that result in a very unique and gorgeous creation. As he did last year, Kiko gave me advice on make-up, jewelry and even shoes! He is also very flexible for appointments and scheduling, not to mention that he always delivers on time!

We went through the same process we did last year: I came up with ideas and Kiko sketched my dress. This time I was looking for a dress in a light weight and delicate fabric that would allow me to move and dance comfortably. We picked a beautiful, printed silk chiffon in a very light and soft blue and green color. He made a multi-layer asymmetrical bias cut skirt that he layered over a short silk charmeuse skirt. The layers had a French hem finishing and as I walked or danced the skirt floated softly in the air creating a very graceful movement, exactly what I had envisioned. Only Kiko could come up with such a gorgeous creation!
I highly recommend Kiko for fine, unique and beautiful formal wear in Seattle.

Thanks again Kiko for making another stunning mother of the bride dress!

I loooooved working with Kiko! My dress came out beautiful, fit me perfectly, and is one of a kind. I had all sorts of crazy requests and ideas and Kiko patiently worked with me. Amazing. And it really isn't as expensive as you may think, so reasonable. I would love to have Kiko make me another dress for another special occasion.

As I started out looking for my wedding dress, I couldn't stand how every dress in every bridal shop looked exactly the same. I didn't want to be spending thousands of dollars on something that was just OK and would be at the next wedding I went to. So I was online and saw the great reviews for Kiko and said, yes, this is perfect! Of all the things I decided on for my wedding, the one choice that was hands down the best was getting my dress made by him. It was absolutely stunning, so unique, and I got comments from literally everyone.

Kiko took my ideas from magazines and my likes/dislikes and sketched something which took my vision and made it more than I could have imagined. He pushed me to use a beaded lace which I was hesitant on and that part of the dress pulled everything together (not to mention added a great wow factor). He is able to make any dress in any budget and at a quality of dressmaking that is top notch.

He was flexible with my schedule for appointments and was available by email/phone/in person when needed. When I asked last minute to do a bussel on my a-symmetrical train, he added it without any issue, even though it was a last minute request. He helped with earring ideas, hair/makeup etc so my look could really come together.

Overall, I would encourage anyone who wants an absolutely beautiful and unique dress in the same budget you were thinking of for a bridal store gown to go to Kiko and get something miles above your expectations. Don't be hesitant to go talk to him, you will be glad you did! You will shine on your day and you will get something so special for you to remember forever.

I've gotten so many compliments on my dress: mermaid style, v-neck, ivory Peau de Soie fabric. Usually, Kiko designs the dress to your ideas and liking, sketching it out for you on the spot. His drawings are beautiful. However, I already had my dress in mind, and drawn out for him. He looked at my drawing, made some suggestions in order to ensure that the dress would compliment my body, and stay up. He then took some measurements and gave me an estimate, which he stuck to, and gave me however much time I needed to think about signing a contract with him.

The price of the dress was much less than the $4,000 Alvina Valenta dress that I initially wanted. The style was similar, but with some personal touches, and it was made to fit. It gave me curves, which I never thought was possible.

Bottom Line: Kiko was very helpful, professional, and fashion forward. He listens to what you want.

Im really not sure I can say everything I need to say about him here. Kiko dealt with my extreme pear shape, plus size body and made me feel beautiful (sadly, a rare occasion for me.) He was kind, sweet, funny, supportive, full of ideas, listened carefully, just a dream. Of all my vendors, Kiko is the only one who, by then end, I felt a sincere emotional connection with. I wholeheartedly recommend him.

Girls don't even think about getting married unless you're wearing a fabulous one of a kind by Kiko's House of Couture!!! While designing my dress, Kiko listened to what I had to say about the theme and the tone of what I envisioned my wedding night to be. He incorporated his knowledge and expertise to create the perfect dress for me---and for this night. The fittings ensured that the dress was a perfect fit every step of the way. I love Kiko!
