Mika made my wedding! I went to 4 other big NYC bridal shops and nothing made me feel special. I had read about Mika in NY magazine and thought I'd give her a shot. When I went to see her, I showed Mika pictures of what I liked from a few other dresses and in no time she sketched out my dream dress!!! I fell in love with it right then and there.

I trusted Mika to design and sew my dress and when it was done. it was even more beautiful than I had imagined. Delicate French lace, buttons down the back and a custom veil where the lace perfectly ended where my dress started. Mika was flexible and worked so hard to make it perfect. She always has a positive attitude and a smile on her face.

I highly recommend Mika - she is an artist and a professional. Believe that she will create a beautiful dress just for you!

Mika is so wonderful it brings me to tears sometimes. I reached out to several dress makers with a challenge: I wanted my mother's 1970s dress turned into a wedding gown for me, and no, I didn't know what I wanted.

Mika was the ONLY one that balanced her professionalism and knowledge with complete compassion for the project. As a bonus feature, she responded with thoughtful answers in less than an hour--and that kind of communication has been true throughout the process! If I didn't know better, I would have thought I was her only bride because she made me feel THAT special and important!

Through the design phase MIka helped guide me to build a dress that would flatter me and my style while still staying true to the nature of my mother's dress. She was always honest with me about what was possible within the parameters of the material available and ended up designing my dream dress with every ounce of lace off of my mothers. Looking at myself on my wedding day, I saw my style reflected in the history of my family, and I could never have asked for more.

Mika is a true gem and the utmost professional. I will miss her as a person (she's so fun to hang out with!) and will always be grateful that she came into my life at such a special time. It was an honor to work with her.

Mika Inatome is AMAZING! I could not find a dress I liked at any of the main NYC salons primarily because I HATE sweetheart necklines (#PromDress) and the few European brands that had dresses I did like were out of my price range. Also, I was kind of late in shopping for a dress and most salons were going to tack on the "rush" order fee, and some cases charge me even more for extra fabric because I am nearly 6ft tall. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted and Mika created exactly what I envisioned. I created a Pinterest page with photos of elements I wanted -- certain necklines and sleeves and silhouettes etc so she could see exactly what I was going for - a slim-fitting fit and flare long lace gown with straps and scoop neckline. Mika can do any kind of dress but her specialty is slim-fitting gowns. I am so happy that I went custom instead of buying an off the rack dress. She can do a dress pretty quickly. I think she did mine in about 3 or 4 months and I always enjoyed visiting her studio and chatting with her because she's super cool and funny. I had a long lace gown with more of a scoop neckline and a bit of lace on the straps. I was really trying to lose weight up to the last minute like most brides do, and the wonderful thing about Mika is she can literally do the last fitting just 2 or 3 days before the wedding so you know your dress will fit like a glove! For a bespoke gown her rates a very reasonable and of course all alterations are included in the price.

Mika is for brides who want to look classic and don't want to look like a princess or a confection. Mika is unbelievably talented and hardworking. She doesn't stop until it is perfect. She also has an incredible eye for what will work with your figure. Within minutes of meeting her and describing what I would like, she drew a sketch of exactly what I had in mind. Over the months of fittings she crafted what my wedding guests described as the most classic wedding dress they had ever seen. She was able to make a truly beautiful one of a kind dress that was also very simple and elegant. She also handmade my veil which was incredibly beautiful. Plus, she is such a pleasure to work with. She is so sweet and warm and really makes you feel at ease. When my Dad saw me in the dress, he was amazed at how it looked exactly like the initial sketch I had shared with him. I highly recommend working with Mika for a one of a kind dress and a truly unique experience! It's not often in life you get to have a dress handmade for you.

i wish that i could give mika inatome more stars! she is incredibly talented and has the most wonderful personality. i am really surprised she doesn't have more reviews! by looking at her website you would never know what she is capable of. she can make anything! i feel like the luckiest bride because i was able to create a one of a kind custom gown with mika.
i think that i went to every single wedding gown store in manhattan and long island. i went to budget friendly places and high end wedding salons hoping to find the perfect gown. there were definitely some beautiful ones for sure, but none that felt like me. mika inatome created the most gorgeous dress for me, something that i never could've imagined or even knew was what i was envisioning. there is definitely nothing even similar to my dress in stores, which makes it even more special. we worked together to create a style from different images and inspirations i had shared with her. during the whole process she was so patient, so fun to work with and loving. i am not the easiest person to work with as i'm so particular about every single detail big and small. she was always kind and listened to everything that i asked for with a smile, tweaking along the way. i know that all she wanted to do was make the most amazing gown for me and for me to feel beautiful on my wedding day. i did!! mika is someone who is so passionate about her work and will not stop until you have the dress of your dreams.
i would recommend mika inatome to anyone who wants a one of a kind special wedding dress. you will not believe what the finished product looks like! completely couture! every time i went for a fitting i would see other dresses that she was working on. each one was so different and so stunning in it's own way. i was a little sad to pick up my dress because that meant my visits were over. i miss her already! i just can't say enough as there are no words to describe her talent and beauty as a person

Mika created an amazing wedding dress for me, she is fantastic to work with and so talented. She listened to my general ideas and sketched out the exact wedding dress that I had been hunting for. Mika took the time to work with me on all of the dress details including creating beautiful handmade swarovski crystal designs and fitting the dress so exactly to my figure. She is patient and walked me through step by step. I really enjoyed working with Mika through out the entire design and creation process. I received so many compliments from guests at my wedding! The dress was so comfortable and easy to dance in that I didn’t want to take it off at the end of the night. I love that my dress is truly one of a kind! Thanks Mika!!!

Dear Mika,

I want to tell you from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day.
People cautioned me with doing a custom wedding dress – giving me horror stories of their own experiences or of stories from people they knew, so I was very nervous going into it but everything I saw in the stores just felt impersonal and generic. It didn’t feel like “me.” I’m SO happy that I followed my instincts and signed on with you!
You took my random sketch and magazine clippings and literally read my mind. You listened to my every request and exceeded ALL of my expectations. The fabric suggestions and style recommendations were exactly what I wanted. I could not have asked for a better designer!
I wanted something that would honor my Korean heritage but would not be too traditional since I’m adopted and far from the traditional type. You managed to interpret my request amazingly which really meant the world to me.
And on the big day, I received SO many compliments on my dress – how unique it was, how beautiful it was, how radiant I looked, how happy I was… you made that possible. THANK YOU for making me feel so special! It is truly magical what the right dress can do for a girl.

All my best,
Shanna

I told Mika some general details I wanted on my gown and within minutes, she had sketched the perfect dress! She really listened and helped me visualize my dress. We started with the initial fitting and I loved watching my dress in the creation process with each visit to New York. The end result was a beautiful dress! Mika added front and back pleated details and strategically applied Alençon lace appliqués all over the dress. Hand-beaded Swarovski crystals were sewn onto each lace appliqué. I loved the low cut back that was embellished with covered buttons. The dress was light-weight and comfortable so I could move around freely all day. I wore Mika's custom bridal wedges which matched the dress perfectly. It had covered buttons at the back with satin ribbon ankle wrap. The shoes came packaged in a pretty blue box which I now use to store wedding keepsakes. :) She also customized my cathedral veil with some of the same lace details as my dress. Mika is so talented and such a pleasure to work with!! Her energy is contagious!
