Custom Orders : The Process
"No design is perfect until the person in it feels like the best version of themselves"
SHARON & MANDEEP
Your best memories are dictated by how you feel, and so designing Outfits that make you feel your best is at the heart of what we do.
Stage 1 - 1:1 CONSULTATION
"I want people to see the dress, but focus on the Woman"
Each one of our Custom Orders begins with an informal face-to-face consultation whereby we discuss your ideas, inspirations, and the special occasion. We work to gain a perspective of your vision, style, likes/dislikes, and start to build a concept with the signature StylmK style.
Stage 2 - SAMPLING
"Style is something each of us already has, all we need to do is find it"
-DIANE VON FURSTENBERG-
Following a series of Moodboards and conversations we will work towards the final hand-sketched design. Throughout this process we refine on every aspect, including the silhouette, fabric, embroidery and colours so you can confidently visualise your Outfit.
Stage 3 - TOILE
"The dress must follow the body of the woman, not the body following the shape of the dress"
-HUBERT DE GIVENCHY-
A Mock-up of the design will be encompassed into a Toile, formed from your measurements, to achieve exact fitting. This stage may extend into 2-3 meetings depending on the complexity of the design.
Stage 4 - PRODUCTION
"Fashion wasn't what you wore someplace anymore, it was the whole reason for going"
Once the Toile has been approved our experienced team will begin working on the final piece, working methodically to your shape. This will take no longer than 6 months on any one Outfit.
We will provide continuous updates to the development of your piece so you're reassured for the final look, and can plan for accessories in the meantime.
Stage 5 - THE UNVEILING & FINAL FITTING
"Dress shabbily and they remember the dress, Dress impeccably and they remember the woman."
The stage where all elements come together.. and we will be on hand to ensure you are happy with all aspects of the design and tailoring.
Come prepared with correct undergarments and matching accessories and be prepared to leave with your dream outfit.
