At Otaduy, they specialize in unconventional wedding dresses. The dresses are all handmade and one-of-a-kind, so all brides can rest assured that they’ve got a truly unique gown.

And for the brides who want something even more special, they offer the “Unplugged” service in which brides can work one-on-one with Carolina Otaduy who will design an entirely personalized dress based on their personality and desires.
The Otaduy philosophy is to “create a new concept of wedding dresses” that draw their inspiration from sources such as films, music, and art. They want every bride to be able to express her true personality through her dress, feeling as comfortable and confident as possible on her special day. The handcrafted creation of each dress involves a detailed process. From drawing the designs and measuring and tearing the fabric to carefully sewing each piece together, the creation is an art. All dresses are made by women with impressive experience in dressmaking, and every dress produced in their workshop is entirely unique.
