About Terri Ives Couture

Terri Ives

"My mother was my inspiration." remembers Terri, "She was very creative and always dressed attractively and fashionably. Without training, she made her own patterns and designs. I wanted to be just like her. I don't remember ever wanting to study anything else in college except Fashion Design."

In the 90's Terri established "Terri Ives Couture" to help women see themselves as God sees them: "uniquely and wonderfully made..."

Terri is an acclaimed clothing designer, national style consultant, and was also selected as an Outstanding Young Woman of America.  For years Terri Ives Couture has assisted each client in selecting the style, color, and fabrics for their garment, to create a piece that will highlight their individual beauty.  

Terri Ives designs have been worn by Governor’s wives, Miss America participants, a former First Lady of the United States, and many other nationally prominent women.

Each season Terri designs an exclusive original collection at her Dallas studio. Her pieces incorporate modern styling, captivating details, and unique fabrics that can be tailored to each client’s particular style.

Joining Terri are Vicki and Bradleigh George, who offer her clientele a wide variety of services. 

Vicki Ann George is a certified color and image consultant. Having studied Business Administration at Dallas Baptist University and possessing a background in customer service, cosmetology, and entrepreneurship, she brings a unique blend of creativity and professionalism to her clientele.

"I love that moment when a client recognizes their own beauty and worth as God's wonderful creation," says Vicki. "How you feel about yourself, inside and out, directly impacts how you approach life; we're here to help you look and feel your best."

Bradleigh George is also a certified image consultant, as well as a modeling coach and professional model/actress herself. Working in the entertainment industry has given her a unique perspective into just how important confidence and your personal presentation is. She loves consulting with clients to help them create their own, unique personal style and teaching posing techniques to ensure that the camera always captures their best side. 

"The confidence you get from a perfect fit just cannot be matched," she explains. "That is why I love couture. The smile on a clients face who feels perfectly comfortable and truly beautiful is priceless."

Why Buy Couture?

why buy couture?

  • A couture garment provides the luxury of a perfect fit.

  • Only the highest quality materials are used in the creation of your one-of-a-kind garment.

  • It is the ultimate way to have a garment that fits flawlessly in style, color, and design for your special occasion (weddings, christenings, social events, and many more).

  • It is made specifically for you.

Note: In addition to our couture collection, Terri Ives Couture offers a moderately priced casual, ready-to-wear Trend collection.

At Terri Ives Couture we want to make your vision a reality. Please call to schedule a visit; we would love to create something uniquely you.

"Haute Couture." "Couture."

These words embody the wardrobe most women dream of but cannot imagine becoming a reality.

Have you ever gone shopping with a mental picture of the perfect garment in your mind? You spend hours visiting store upon store, searching (sometimes for days) to find that one piece; until finally you have to settled for something that is a little like what you had in mind.

It does not have to be this way. You can buy couture!

Couture is simply the design and creation of fashionable clothes to your specific requirements and measurements.



Terri, keep giving your message…for we desperately need to hear it… not to gain a vain, prideful display, but to be freed to express our unique character.
