For five generations, the Sottero family has created designs that capture the imagination and inspire beauty among brides around the world. This skill and artistry culminated in the establishment of Maggie Sottero Designs in 1997.

Launching with our custom corset closure, we have continued to provide our incomparable fit that has come to be known in the industry as “Maggie Magic.”

Creating Magic

From sketch versions to hand-drawn patterns to hours of draping, tucking, and perfecting each toile, an immaculate wedding dress comes to life. Internationally sourced fabrics, hand-placed embellishments, and our renowned fit combine to create a perfectly tailored wedding dress.

Today, we remain true to the Sottero’s legacy of premium construction while moving into the future of bridalwear with three outstanding lines:

With our launch in 1997, design director Lesley Margaret (“Maggie”) Webster assumed the alias of “Maggie Sottero” in honour of her great grandmother. As our core brand, Maggie Sottero caters to the romantic and ethereal bride with a classic vision for her wedding, honouring Maggie Sottero’s five-generation legacy of passion artistry and innovation in the wedding industry.

“Each hand-crafted gown is a reflection of my dedication to delivering best-in-class service, and making dreams a reality for every bride.” -Maggie Sottero

In 2006, we introduced Sottero and Midgley, a couture line from the chic and statement-making bride – the name recognising the fifth-generation involvement of Lesley’s daughter, Kelly Midgley, in the business. Each season, Sottero and Midgley offers cutting-edge styles to brides with elegant and discerning tastes.

There is nothing more beautiful than a bride on her wedding day. I’ve spent my entire life trying to capture the elegance and romance of a wedding day, and to be part of such a special day is truly an honour.” -Maggie Sottero

Maggie Sottero Designs launched Rebecca Ingram in 2016, a line of timeless gowns at affordable prices. The line is named in honour of Maggie Sottero’s daughter, whose passion for beautiful designs went hand-in-hand with her commitment to attainable quality.

With this outstanding debut, we deliver captivating styles to brides at a greater variety of price points than ever before.
