HISTORY OF DFA

Dawn FitzGerald Atelier is an Irish couture design house specialising in evening wear and bridal gowns.

Established in 2008

The label was established in 2008 with the aim of creating the most beautiful, feminine and elegant gowns. Each gown is handmade in our studio to the client's individual specifications by a team of specialists with a wealth of knowledge and a passion for creating something special. Only the finest quality fabrics are used, sourced from around the world.

The label first started retailing in Ireland and Asia. The success of this led to the opening of the first DFA salon in Dublin in 2011. With an increasing client base commissioning bridal gowns, 2013 saw the launch of the DFA Couture Bridal Collection.
