Experience True Custom Clothing!


Atelier Sean M. Horton is the leading provider for custom made wedding gowns and custom suiting in the Kansas City metro area, so we are a one-stop location for couples when it comes to gowns and suiting for their wedding day or any special occasion. At Atelier Sean M. Horton, we believe that fashion is about so much more than just clothing. When you come into our open, airy studio and begin to work with us to create a custom garment for you, that process becomes about expressing who you are in the garment you are going to wear. Every stitch, every line, each piece of fabric, is carefully selected and sewn with you in mind. When you choose to have a custom-made garment by Atelier Sean M. Horton, you become not just a client, but our design inspiration and a part of our fashion family. 

Sean M. Horton
Head Designer / Owner.

Atelier Sean M. Horton was founded and created by Sean following studying textile art at the Kansas City Art Institute and earning his degree in Fashion Design at JCCC. He’s always had a deep-rooted interest in fashion as an expression of self and a way to be creative, something he credits to his mother. As he grew up, he witnessed her creating beautiful accessories and garments, and became intrigued. She gave him the encouragement and freedom to design his own outfits because he never wanted to wear the same things as other kids simply to fit in.  He believes that fashion is a visual introduction to who you are. Sean is driven to create every garment with the person who is wearing it in mind, instead of a one-design-fits-all approach.  Your clothing is the first thing people notice when you enter a room, and it is for this reason that fashion should be highly personalized, reflect your individuality, and make you feel great about yourself.
