Book an appointment

You can either come to our studios in Battersea using our comfortable fitting rooms – or we can come to you – attending your home or place of work whichever is more convenient for you.

During your appointment

We listen to you and then provide advice and options – alteration and sometimes re-styling is necessary to achieve the perfect fit – a unique opportunity for you to ask our knowledgable fitters any questions regarding your garments and wardrobe contents. We offer tailoring solutions and an estimate of tailoring costs for you to decide whether to go ahead. This expert consultation is chargeable.

Collecting your item

Our standard turnaround time for alterations is five to seven working days and eight to twelve weeks for bridal wear – although we will always do what we can to meet your deadline. You can collect your garment in person trying it on one more time making sure it fits perfectly or we can send it by recorded delivery.

In a Hurry?

In a particular hurry or working to a tight deadline? Ask us about our express service, sometimes free or with a 25% premium, depending on workload and the time of year.
