Can I get a dress next day?
Unfortunately due to the nature of our bespoke service and our brand philosophy on slow fashion we are not able to deliver next day to service on our made to order products. Each product takes at least two weeks to make and be put in production and then please refer to our delivery page for our delivery dates from then. Expresses available on request but next day delivery for any product is not an option our brand can facilitate. Please allow at least one week before you’re a special event for MTO expresses.

Why made to order?
Made to order is a happy medium between bespoke and RTW. We make custom garments that are made to fit and sculpt and are a much loved investment piece to add to your closet. Made to order offers a solution for that sometimes overwhelming design options when beginning a bespoke order. MTO ties in to our brand philosophy of sustainability with a zero waste model and gives you the option to customise colour and fit.
Do you have a price list?
No we don’t have a price list for bespoke as it heavily depends on the complexity of cut, finishes and fabric if a design. E.g- a dress with ostrich feathers will be significantly more than a plain one.
For made to order pieces our price is fixed as it has been calculated accurately given fabric and craftsmanship time.
For bespoke orders we are open to price negotiations depending on your budget but can’t compromise too far off industry standard out of respect of the craftsmanship of bespoke. .
