Design and Couture FAQs
Is there a consultation fee?
Yes. A $75 consultation fee is charged to first time clients. In order to prepare an accurate quote, your design must be fully developed with specifications regarding style, fabrication and technical requirements. This fee, along with your deposit will be deducted from your final bill.
Can I purchase the fabric myself?
Yes. However, we don’t want the project to turn out poorly because of a wrong fabric choice so we need to discuss the choice of fabric in the initial stages. We strongly recommend that you invest in the highest quality of fabric that you can afford. If necessary, simplify your design but buy quality fabric.
What is the turnaround time on my project?
That will depend on the project, the season, your schedule (for fittings) and our ability to find just the right fabric, trim, etc. Gowns and bridal party attire can take three to six months. Tailored clothing can take as few as four weeks or as long as six months.
