What we do

Atelier Tammam is a traditional style couture house.

We create new collections each season and clients are invited to see and try samples at our central London studio.

Our bespoke service offers a first class experience, allowing brides to trial and fit their purchase as many times as they desire. Clients are welcome to suggest design alterations or additions and our expert fitters will ensure each garment fits perfectly, is true to the Tammam style and suits and flatters the wearer.

Tammam gowns are unique and impossible to replicate. Each gown is a one-off, created by a team of skilled artisans within our unique supply chain.

In the couture collection, each design will only be replicated a limited number of times, and each individual gown will have a unique signature, depending on which tailor stitches it and which hand workers embellish it. Quality is never compromised and the look will always be exquisite, only the wearer will know how their gown is distinctive and exclusive to them.

Tammam is also able to provide some unique services, such as our bespoke lace design. We offer tailored fabrics and production techniques to our bespoke clients to ensure the ethical standpoint they prefer is taken into account.
