Custom Clothing

The “dress” made just for you is telling your story, it should make you feel the most beautiful, comfortable and feel confident in yourself. Support custom clothing and turn your closet sweatshop-free!

Custom clothing is quite rare nowadays. Most people still shop in retail chains and hope for the best โ€” quality, design, and how the product is made.

However, I believe that people are also starting to be aware that fast fashion is not really the future. It is destroying our planet and exploiting the workers. I’m very pleased to see that more and more are also starting to appreciate handmade, high quality items made locally by sustainable designers.

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

Coco Chanel

I wanted to be a fashion designer ever since I can remember. As a kid, I always loved creating, drawing and designing. Still today, I need to unleash my creativity in everyday life.

In the past years I worked together with many different customers. Every time it is important to listen to their needs and wishes, even though they might be sometimes a bit unusual.

The custom tailoring process is very different when you are working directly with a customer, but it is a nice challenge, too. The end result is a one-of-a-kind custom-made dress, created just for that one person.

I have a really good experience with custom clothing for maid of honours, gala dresses and wedding dresses. But of course I can also make a business attire of your choice or a lovely dress for that night out.

One of the most common wedding superstitions says that it’s bad luck for a bride to make her own wedding dress. Well, I have made three wedding dresses for myself (but married only once) and I’m very happy in my married life. The third time is the charm! ๐Ÿ™‚
