Elegant, Sophisticated and Unique

Merike Klaas Designs is Hamilton’s best choice for custom made bridal wear. Designer and owner Merike Laigna specializes in creating unique and sophisticated wedding gowns and special occasion dresses. Every project is an expression of the designer’s keen eye for unique fabrics, high couture details and boasts of sartorial excellence, which is attained from many years of experience and passion towards the dressmaking craft.

Merike’s ultimate goal is to grant every client the feeling of luxury of the well fitted, personalized clothing. It is the greatest joy to witness the satisfaction, confidence and comfort evoked by the authenticity of the  custom couture garments. My designs have both love and timeless value stitched into every seam. When my clients feel it too, my mission is accomplished.

I have an idea…

I envisioned…

I wish…


“Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.”

Merike is amazing and goes the extra mile. I found my wedding dress at Jeffery Bridal and Merike did the alterations. Her quality of work and customer service skills do not go unnoticed – she is very personable, friendly, and truly cares about her work and customers.
