Shehz was unbelievable! After searching everywhere for the perfect dress, she brought my ideas to life and created the most amazing dress. The fit was perfect, the fabrics were extremely high quality, and the detail in the lace was incredibly special, something I'll treasure forever!
I was on a mission to find the prefect wedding dress but couldn't find anything that i loved in the stores. I am so lucky to have found Shehz! She designed for me a dress that suited my body, my wedding and my personality.
She kept me updated throughout the whole creation process and was an absolute pleasure and professional to work with. She came with me to select fabric and commissioned someone to handbead my lace when we couldn't find the perfect beading in stores. A perfectionist for sure! Each time i had a fitting, Shehz had done a mountain of work.
I never once had any doubt that my dress wouldn't be perfect and finished on time. It was the most beautiful and perfectly finished dress i had seen.
Thank you, Shehz for making me the perfect dress for my perfect day!
I'm so happy I chose Shehz to make my dress. I had a vague idea in my mind of what I wanted and saw a dress hanging in Armadale that was quite similar to it. The girl encouraged me to meet with the designer (Shehz) as she said she could customise whichever parts I wanted. I never tried another dress. I met Shehz and she understood exactly what I was after. She was so lovely to deal with during the whole process and I felt wonderful in my dress on the day. I had many compliments and would recommend Shehz to anyone. I've seen some of her other designs on the racks and on other girls during my fittings and she's clearly an amazing artist who can adapt to any style.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have found this designer. I found it quite hard to find a dress even after visiting so many bridal stores in Melbourne. I initially walked into Shehzarin Batha Couture to look at her amazing lace dresses she had on display in the windows but was reluctant to look at the prices because I knew i could never afford something like that. The lovely assistant in the store insisted that I should make a booking with the designer Shehz and I'm so glad I did. From the moment I met Shehz, I knew I was in good hands. She understood exactly what I wanted, was very happy to work within my budget, gave me the best advice (especially when I was conscious of my figure), drew up different options and involved me in picking my own lace & silk. Most importantly created something so perfect that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you so much for all your time even when you were pregnant with your darling daughter. I received so many compliments on the day, especially how different & elegant it was. I felt so beautiful :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Shehz was so lovely to deal with, as well as producing an amazing dress exceeding all expectations! My ideas and thoughts were pieced together perfectly to the finest detail. Highly recommended to anyone looking to have their wedding dress tailored to suit individual tastes & fulfil your wedding day dreams!
I have never had such a beautiful dress, a work of art made especially for me as the creation you have just left me.
My dress was such a hit!! Compliments from Cinderella going to the ball to simply Amazing were just a few. Thank you so much. It is truly amazing!
Shehzarin Batha is the one of a kind designer who possesses a canny understanding of exactly what it is that you’re looking for. She designed and made a gown that was the most beautiful creation I had ever seen and that was perfect for my figure and personality. She also created my bridesmaids and mother’s dresses, and they were all incredible. She is not only an amazing designer, she is the consummate professional – I felt that I had the right number of appointments and Shehzarin made sure I was always kept up to speed with the progress of each garment.
I couldn’t have asked for my gown to have been any more beautiful than it was, I will forever be grateful to Shehzarin for creating such a stunning gown ensuring that I had the perfect wedding day. I would (and do!) recommend The House of CQ to anyone.
Thank you again Shehzarin and The House of CQ.
I first contacted Shehz about having some retro bullet bras created. Shehz was very accommodating of my request, and very receptive to my suggestions whilst also sharing her thoughts of what would work best, no doubt achieved by her vast experience in couture. Although I initially only contacted her for bullet bras, since then I have had exquisite custom couture pieces and a number of ready to wear dresses and trousers made. I live 200kms from Melbourne so although sometimes a challenge to make the time to get to her studio, it is always worth the travel. Besides, I get to often make a weekend of it, staying at a hotel in the city, catching up with friends, visiting the galleries and attending the theatre. In the event that I can’t make it to Melbourne, Shehz will always make the trip down to me. Her attention to detail, desire to fulfill her customer’s desires and overwhelmingly positive response to every idea I have, enhance my own enthusiasm to push the boundaries of my own visions and quirky notions. I have difficulty getting clothes that I like and will fit me properly, but thanks to Shehz this is no longer a problem. We have developed a relationship whereby if she comes up with an idea or sources materials that she thinks may interest me, she emails me with descriptions, designs, photos and a brief of how she will create it all. I have put her under some tight deadlines and probably asked too much of her, but she always delivers on time and to such an exceptional quality, it blows me away. Shehz is unlike other designers I know, her creativity and meticulous ways is unsurpassed. She has a genuine passion and dedicates her life to the real art of couture. Thanks to her I have the most amazing designs sitting in my wardrobe, created just for me by a couturier that is one in a million. I can never thank Shehz enough for all that she has done for me.

All the best, Jacki W x”

CQ delivered a stylish custom designed and made wedding outfit with amazing results. I received many compliments about my beautiful dress. The dress made me feel desirable, complimenting my shape perfectly. Shehz Batha provided a very professional service. I would recommend CQ to anyone.

After rushing around pre Spring Carnival desperately searching for an individual frock for the races (alas to no avail) I was fortunately introduced to Shez (creator/owner of CQ). The outfit I had in mind came to life from this creative mind and hands. Shez was extremely patient and accommodating with the alterations, changes and fittings that I required, even sourcing the some of the materials. Along came Oaks Day and all of the compliments on such a unique and elegant outfit. I will definitely be seeking Shez’s expertise again this year and in the future.

“I contacted The House of CQ as my daughter needed a graduation dress. As she was presenting on the night she wanted a handmade one off design. The creating and fitting would take 2 days so Shehzarin Batha (the owner) suggested staying at the Langham Southbank and arranged luxury corporate cars for the transfers. We had a couple of great days in Melbourne taking in the sights, attractions and eating out. The House of CQ created an exquisite handmade dress for Shelley and she looked beautiful. All in all a unique Melbourne experience, thanks again to Shehzarin and The House of CQ, we’ll be back!”
