When you call us to discuss your clothes alterations, we will explain that the starting point for any clothes alterations is a fitting appointment. You will try on your garments and our experienced fitting consultants will advise you in how your clothes can be altered and restyled to fit you perfectly, independent of whether they are new garments, existing ones or vintage items. In the fitting appointment, you and our fitter will work together to refine your look. We can make suggestions based on – how garments are worn – traditionally or latest fashion trends. Ultimately it is you who will make the decision of how we finish your clothes. There are rules for how clothes should be worn but if you have a very individual style, they are bound to be broken to express personality and character.
For the fitting appointment, we need you to bring the correct shoes in terms of heel height, accessorise and undergarments to make sure your garments can be fitted perfectly. The type of lingerie you wear will shape the bust and tummy area. If you are a gentleman who wears a belt with his trousers or you have bought a three-piece suit, we will need you to bring your waist coat to fit your suit jacket.
The fitting appointment is not only an appointment to fit your clothes. It is also a good opportunity to discuss how you would like to manage your garment. For example in the evening – whether you need a bustle to be added for the party in the evening.
