HOW IT WORKS

1
Initial consultation

This is all about inspiration and collaboration. You will discuss your vision with our team and work together to sketch a drawing. Once you are happy with what you see, we will take your measurements and get to work.

2
Choose your fabric

From rich linens, delicate silks and luxurious wools, to beaded fabrics, fur and leather, it is time to choose the fabric for your design. We will be on hand to make recommendations. And of course, we are happy to work with fabrics you already own or want to source yourself.

3
Your toile fitting

Our tailors will check the pattern in regards to your measurements and fabric choice – still plenty of time for you to amend and request changes before we move onto the next and most exciting stage of the process.

4
Making your garment

After the toile fitting, the pattern will be cut into the original fabric and sewn together by hand in preparation for a tack fitting. Perfecting key features of your garment – like the neckline, cuffs and hems – might involve several fittings before adding the tiny details that will bring the garment to life.

 

5
The finishing touch

Our aim is for you to take delight in our Bespoke Service – from the start to the very end being involved in every decision made, finishing off with you wearing your perfect garment.

For more information about our bespoke tailoring service, please call us or drop us an email. As a starting point it is helpful to tell us about styles you enjoy wearing. If you can, please do send us visuals via email. A word on made to measure charges – remember this garment is made for you only – beyond a limited designer edition – the tailoring process can sometimes be costly but from our experience for the right garment and occasion worth it.
