|Why's That Dress So Darn Expensive?
Beyond fabric and custom fitting.
Because every client is unique...
For the initial consultation After getting an idea of my clients needs and budget. Many designs began with a base concept and using my creative process I mold a finished product that is unique and functional.
How your personality and performance is enhanced by the design of your dress;
Most of my clients being performers and choreographers are artistic and creative. Often they will approach me with a strong vision of how they want to portray their image for that performance/music. I will make suggestions for fabrics styling features that combined with their figure type will give a unique look. The design process sometimes is somewhat organic, making additions, changes and decoration along the way. Unlike an off the rack throughout the custom design process there are important stages of client approval and fitting for proportion and ease of movement.

|Buying Custom Shoes in Argentina
Getting the most out of your buying trip can take a little preparation. But with a little forethought and research ahead of time you can go with a mini notebook of tools that will enable you to make better choices. Matching colors - A sure fire way to match a favorite dress is to get paint swatch cards from the DIY store. You can mark of all the nearest options or coordinating color possibilities.
Unique ideas - Research online designer shoes, unusual leather finishes, fashion and color trends that you may like to incorporate.
Having these tools when you are there will prevent you from feeling overwhelmed or buying shoes that don't enhance your wardrobe.
Pre-washed / Pre-shrunk fabrics
It is preferable to do this for some fabrics as long as it will not change the texture of the fabric. We do this mainly knits so that they are washable. Its useful for heavy wear garments you want to throw in the machine. On some fabrics it may change the handle we always test first to ensure that you are Ok with any changes due to excessive shrinkage. There is a labour/time charge for this.
