Mia MontaMia Monta
Mia Monta started in 1953 as a contracting firm in the clothing industry. At that time, it produced ready-to-wear ladies’ and children’s wear on a small scale under the management of Mrs. Van Achter-Paesmans, the company’s founder.
Five years later her husband also joined the company. After a while she decided to design her own collection of ladies’ clothing, which her husband sold to retail businesses all over Belgium.
Since then “Mia Monta” has expanded into a family business employing twenty-five people. Its product range has also evolved over the years, first adding superior-quality garments to the ready-to-wear collection and then changing over to cocktail dresses and bridal gowns.
As this changeover was greeted with a lot of enthusiasm, the company decided to continue on this new route. The huge success of Nadine Menschaert’s designs, the founders’ daughter-in-law, allowed the company to invest considerably in larger collections, know-how and machinery.
Having established a company with sound foundations, Mia Monta’s founders decided in 1999 to hand on the torch to their eldest son Ludo Van Achter and their daughter-in-law Nadine Menschaert, who are now in charge of company’s further expansion exporting to all neighbouring countries and developing a new product i.e. covers for bridal gowns, cocktail dresses, men’s suits, etc.

Tine De CleerTine De Cleer
Passion and quirkiness
Passionate about fashion, fabrics and developing patterns, Tine writes her life story with needle and thread.
Tine studied Fashion & Textile in Ghent and specialized in pattern drawing. After her studies, she started working for renowned designers and worked for major Belgian fashion houses.
Among other things, she was responsible for Kaat Tilley’s foreign clients. “I flew to Los Angeles where I, together with Kate, made the evening dresses of stars like Melanie Griffith for the Golden Globes”. In addition, Tine invariably works with Jean Paul Knott, someone she can call a friend in addition to being a colleague.
Tine has been making wedding dresses for over 20 years: “As long as I can remember, I have had an unconditional love for bridal wear. Being a part of a love story and making someone’s dream day come true is very special. Bridal attire always appeals to the imagination. Only the most beautiful materials are good enough.”
Every wedding dress is unique and contains a piece of Tine’s quirkiness. “When all the individual elements – from the pattern, to the cut, the smallest details and the personal touch of the bride – come together, a dress really becomes special.”
“Seeing a dress come to life little by little
coming is one of my favorite things.”
Unique and personal
“With my concept I bring a collection of several silhouettes. Those pieces form a foundation for both the bride and me. The bride-to-be always has an idea of the model, the cut and the choice of fabric, but the greatest source of inspiration remains the bride herself. Her body shape, wishes and needs remain the most important elements for a perfect wedding dress.”
From the first acquaintance, measuring, patterns, fabric choice to cutting, stitching, fitting and the very last finishing touch, Tine goes through the process from start to finish. And she always does this with the bride in mind: “Only in this way can the bridal outfit be the perfect reflection of the bride, her character, her figure, movements and so on.”.
In addition to bridal couture, ladies can also contact Tine for tailor-made evening wear and timeless basics. Her professional style advice and eye for detail ensure that every outfit tells a personal story.

BETWEEN PASSION AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
Located in the heart of Brussels, the Atelier Valentine Avoh offers light, refined and playful wedding dresses in a Haute Couture spirit, combining surprising details and timeless cuts.
Graduated in fashion design from the London College of Fashion, the Belgian designer worked for more than 10 years for prestigious international houses such as Alexander McQueen, Alexis Mabille and San Andrès Milano.
While completing her first wedding dress in 2009, Valentine fell in love with the handcrafted process. Five years later, she launched her own brand and then opened her atelier in Brussels in 2017, where she creates each piece in the manner of the greatest names in Couture.
From Rita Hayworth’s undeniable glamour to the mysterious sensuality of Marlène Dietrich, Valentine’s universe is a mix of cinematographic and musical references. The songs of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald exude their charm in her creations.
From the first sketch to the finished product passing by the paper pattern, each pieces is made by hand in my Brussels workshop. The perfect equation to give you that feeling of intimate luxury and discreet elegance that only bespoke craftsmanship can provide.
In my constant quest for quality, I sources fabrics exclusively in Europe; in Italy, in France and of course in Belgium, from the same suppliers as those of the Haute Couture houses. I also develops some of my own unique embroideries in partnership with my suppliers in order to offer you truly unique pieces who embody the characteristic of the Atelier’s dna.

Bivolino Brand Story
Over its 50 year history, Bivolino has built a reputation as a leading supplier of beautifully tailored shirtss – crafted with the ultimate combination of precision and design. But few people know the story behind the brand and how it spearheaded the design innovation we see in shirt manufacturing today.
The Bivolino story begin in 1954, when brothers Louis and Jacques Byvoet founded the company with a joint investment of 8 million francs. Their grandfather, Jacques, had been in the linen trade since 1900 and the name Bivolino was chosen to represent both the family name of Byvoet and linen – the fabric from which Bivolino shirts would be made from.
