Picking up the tradition of individual seamstresses, we have a passionate and dedicated team of fitters and tailors who hold extensive knowledge in dress making, dress construction and evening wear alterations. They will provide you with valuable advice of how your dress should be fitted to perfection being aware of maintaining the original finish and style of a garment. High quality alterations might not be requested for every garment but in all cases for high quality and designer items to make sure the integrity is kept. We ensure the original French seams are reapplied on translucent garment, binding are kept and couture dress are finished by hand. These is the detail which completes the look!
We work with fashion brands like Givenchy, Gucci, Louis Vuitton standing for high tailoring quality which we ensure is continued in the alteration process. Regular dress alterations are shortening from the hem and depending on how many layers your dress has and the type of finish required, alteration charges can vary. Occasionally dress will be shortened through the waist or by unpicking and re-applying borders – all to make sure the garment will look original and will bring out the best of you.
