Client Love

Lakshmi saved me and my dress. I rang with only 3 days to go till an event. In little over 24 hours she had altered my dress and so beautifully as well.

She was so sweet, open and caring. I would highly recommend her. She has high work ethic and she definitely takes care of the person.

I guarantee you won’t find anyone else so dedicated to what they do and on making sure their clients are 100% happy. 

The quality of her work is outstanding and definitely worth the money. Lakshmi goes out of her way to make sure she has every little detail under control. 
My dress turned out beautiful and was better then I’d ever dreamed it to be. 

She suggested different ways to portray the designs, giving her own personal experienced opinion. Lakshmi’s work is so unique and special and if you’re looking for a customized dress, shoes or bag, she is definitely the person to call upon. Without her help and experience my dream dress wouldn't have become reality.

This was my first experience getting my dream dress made through Lakshmi Bee.

Lakshmi understood exactly what I wanted and gave me different options on what would work with the style.

​Lakshmi's service was very impressive and the finished dress was absolutely stunning, just how I wanted it. 

I highly recommend her for any one that needs clothing made! She takes pride in everything she makes and makes it to perfection.

Both Sonny and I were absolutely astonished by the grace of such amazing outfits and designs. Lakshmi and her family are the most caring, loving, supportive and beautiful people. Lakshmi’s designs topped the whole show, I've been to a number of shows in the past, Sonny has walked for many, but this one was on top of our list. Can't wait to purchase some of Lakshmi’s beautiful designs.

Hi Lakshmi, I give you so much credit for not only the amazing work you do as a designer but also all the behind the scenes work you do

I was quite pleased with the staff at Lakshmi Bee because they helped me figure out what colours and style would work best on me. 

My custom Lakshmi Bee suit was great, It ended up being too good for words.

Lakshmi's service was insanely helpful for me. I found her out of the blue with a desperate need and she pulled trough.  Her passion for her work shows in her warm service and quality products. I've already recommended her to friends.
