Meet  
        Courtney 

Born and raised in a very creative home in country South West Victoria, I was forever drawing, making or creating something. It wasn't until I started secondary school where I discovered a passion for sewing in my textiles class and pursued this through the rest of my high school years.  

 

After finishing school I followed my passion and completed an Advanced Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Technology at The Gordon in 2015. The following year I made the move to Melbourne to work full time in a dance/costume fabric store, which eventually lead to a Costume Assistant role on the TV series Wentworth. From here I've gone from show to show working in different Costume Departments as an Assistant and Standby Assistant for several Australian Film and Television productions.

After a few years in the film industry the passion for designing and making my own garments had been put on the back burner and I realised it was time to launch my own small business 'Miss Nee Creations'. Here I could create unique garments for clients and still work in costume.

 

Wanting to take the plunge into high end dressmaking I was accepted to attend The Paris American Academy's summer school in June 2019. During this time I was able to further refine my skills in couture techniques, corsetry and bustiers. 

 

After returning from Paris, I began taking on bridal alterations work from 'Embrace Bridal Boutique'. In 2020 when covid hit Australia my film and bridal work was shut down. With plenty of time at home to fill and with some help from Kristy, I began developing designs to fill a niche market gap within her store. And so 'Maisey Bridal Couture' was born. A locally made minimalistic range of bridal separates, where brides can choose pieces to create a gown that reflects their own style. Designed and made exclusively for Embrace Bridal Boutique.
