Meet Tammie Nitschke, a Queensland wedding gown designer ...

Tammie Nitschke
Label: Elizabeth De Varga Exclusive Fashions
Bride: Allison

It was a case of "it's all about the details" when designer Tammie Nitschke collaborated with bride Allison on her absolutely delightful art deco-inspired gown. Always working closely with brides to achieve beautiful results like this, Tammie describes her main goal as "to help provide brides with the best possible experience and make their dream gown become a reality." The designer says she has always been a creative person, noting "we are always learning. It’s a work in progress. I learn from every bride, this empowers me to share this knowledge with others." You lucky brides! 

How does this bride's gown embody your label's aesthetic?
It’s intricate, and attention to detail is key. Simple styling with divine detailing.

Are there any key trends which you have featured in the gown's design?
Simple line with delicate vintage art deco hand beading!

As a designer are you meticulously organised, a chaotic creative or a free-thinker?
A creative thinker - I like to spread images, fabrics, trims and beads across the workroom, on various tables, in various offices, on various walls and on many mannequins – to be completely surrounded by the gowns.To let inspiration occur whenever, wherever! The best ideas can form when you least expect it. 

Did the bride have any particular requirements? 
Simple and styled with intricate detail.

This gown was inspired by ...
It started with the bride’s scrapbook of images and with my guidance and expertise it evolved to the dream gown. 

Your best advice to girls looking for their dream gown?
Be true to yourself and your style. Have the gown you want. Don’t be afraid to be individual. Feel comfortable with your designer/couturier as you will be spending a lot of time together.

What would we always find in your workroom?
We always have music on. And there is always cake, chocolate and coffee!

Your vision for your label in the future?
To continue to be recognised for our quality, Australian-made couture gowns, and remain at the forefront of the industry for innovative design and outstanding service.
