The Beginning

Opus Couture Shop Exterior
Opus Couture
“The whole ethos behind Opus in the first place was to give every bride a haute couture experience; to listen to her picture of how she wants to look and what she wants to be, and to give that to her. That ethos runs in the veins of the whole team who become a very important part of the bride’s wedding day, even if they’re not there in person, because what the bride is wearing is everything we’ve done for them, right down from the buying to every stitch and bead,“ 
— Sharon Hamilton McPherson, Owner and Designer in Chief

Sharon McPherson established Opus Couture, based in the lovely village of West Kilbride, in 2003. Sharon has 30 years experience in the Bridalwear industry and Opus Couture has quickly grown into one of Scotland’s leading names in Bridal Fashion.
Our success has been achieved through quality of service, experience and in-house expertise, which has been recognised by winning the VOWS Industry Award in 2016 and in 2006 and 2010 as Best Bridal Retailer in Scotland, with nominations every year since 2005!
Sharon along with the majority of our staff have qualifications in fashion design and pattern cutting enabling us to give expert advice to all our brides, helping them to find the perfect gown.

Our beautiful new sister salon, Opus Atelier is just across the street from Opus Couture. We have brought 4 new high end designers to Scotland which are exclusive to Opus Atelier including Berta and Berta Muse. It may be the beautiful simplicity of a superbly cut pattern or the amazing complicity of exquisite beadwork and lace, but one thing is for sure each designer has their own distinct style.

The salon has the same welcoming and peaceful atmosphere as found in Opus Couture and you can visit the Opus Atelier website.
