The Difference a Tailor can make
THE DIFFERENCE A TAILOR CAN MAKE
Uniquely yours – we can turn a ready-to-wear garment into a one-off.
The best of you – your shape and proportions – look inside your wardrobe – ask yourself why there garments you have not worn at all. You probably know why – they just do not make you feel good. Is it they just don’t fit?
The key to success – the knock-on-effect of kicking out or re-vamping ill-fitted clothes is success. Your professional tailor, the magician, can ensure you look fantastic – an immediate boost of confidence and self-assurance.
Value over time – clothes that fit well and flatter will become favourites and be worn frequently. Make your wardrobe more effective – create favourites and signature pieces and ‘everyday’ clothes.
Discover your style – by re-styling vintage or inherited pieces – if you wait long enough each era returns, generally in a cycle of 20 years, but always with slight changes applied which your consultant tailor can advise you on.
IN COMMON WITH THE CELEBS
On certain occasions, especially when buying relatively inexpensive clothes, one might tend to feel that undertaking alterations are not justifiable. But in a world where appearance opens doors, how we look and maintain standards becomes more important than ever. When we want to stand out from the crowd, we can express some of our identity by wardrobe choice and how we are wearing our clothes. One of the reasons why models, celebrities and socialites look so good is that their clothes fit well. Alterations and perfect fits are a given for mega stars working with designers and stylists – these are designers and stylists who choose Design & Alter as their tailors. At the most recent BAFTAS we created fit perfection for, amongst others, Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander and Bel Powley. So yes, you share YOUR tailor and your fitting consultant with top celebrities and most of the luxury, fashion and haute couture brands: Gucci, Burberry, Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Prada, Versace and more.
Remember that a well-chosen signature piece can truly express and perfect individuality. This is where we suggest focussing the attention to detail that makes all the difference. Whether it is a blazer, a trench coat, a blouse, skirt or a dress – the absolute must is that these pieces fit perfectly – not just like a glove, a second skin.
Whether you are a 100% fashionista, a style slave or a lover of classic high quality – or you just dress to be well-dressed – an experienced tailor can add value to your clothes and flatter your look.
