Meet the designer


New Zealand Fashion Designer Tanya Carlson is known for her romantic, timeless silhouettes. Now, she’s broken new ground in outdoor couture; draping seven meters of GORE-TEX fabric in one continuous line.

Featuring minimal seams, the result is a highly breathable, functional dress — one that adapts to unpredictable weather conditions. Now any bride, can be the best prepared bride.

“We kept the design simple, elegant and understated, to really let the GORE-TEX fabric shine. A bride wearing the Adapt Wedding Dress can let her sense of adventure run free.” — Tanya Carlson


Engineered with white GORE-TEX fabric, to protect you from rain and wind.

Packs down into a travel-size bag, so you can fly with ease.

Features an adaptable train that transforms into a cape with hood.

Blue Merino Wool lining – Your something blue helps regulate body temperature in warm and cool conditions.

Adjustable hemline – Change the length of the dress with hidden internal zips.

Large storage pockets – For reusable water bottles, first-aid kits and flowers.

Machine washable – Wash off mud and debris without the expensive laundry bill.

High-end style – Looks tremendous with your favorite hiking boots and gaiters.

This dress went to auction and raised a whopping $4,100 for the Himalayan Trust. The Himalayan Trust provide clean water, healthcare and early education to communities in the Everest region. If you’re like to support them, click the link below.
