One-of-a-kind 50s dresses to flatter all figures

If you’re looking for an exclusive 1950s-inspired dress for the races, the regatta or a summer wedding, try a Louise Rose Couture.

Our occasion dresses are 50s-style cuts that nod to current fashions and trends, carefully designed to make women of all ages, shapes and sizes feel like the belle of the ball.

Although made to order, our dresses are offered at an affordable midpoint between off-the-peg and fully bespoke, using standard-size mock-ups that we can alter to fit your requirements. We also offer an array of features and finishes to make your dress unique and a reflection of your best self. This includes piping detail, contrast waistbands, covered buttons, your choice of sleeve length and an option to add hidden pockets — who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?

In addition we offer lace top overlays in a range of colours. These have button-down backs that look great over a plain satin dress and give you the opportunity to change the look of your outfit next time you wear it.

Collection and sample dresses


Many discerning ladies come to Louise Rose Couture looking for distinctive vintage dresses with a modern twist for Ascot, Goodwood Revival, weddings, proms and black tie events. If you’re one of them, book a free consultation at our Reading-based studio or at one of our stockists, where you can try on sample dresses in a relaxed environment with a cuppa.


I now own three of Louise's glorious dresses and I love every single one. They're comfortable to wear, look fantastic (very flattering on my curvy bits) and make me feel fabulous every time I put one on. Louise was really helpful and knowledgeable, and made ordering a bespoke dress much less terrifying than I'd expected it to be. I'll be back very soon for another one!
