The Experience

How does it work?

The process listed in 6 simple steps.

  • 1. Book an appointment.
    The online appointment concierge is the easiest and fastest way to book an appointment with our team – just select the date and time that works best for you. All measurement consultations are complimentary and take anywhere from 30min to 1hr. If you would like to book a same day appointment or your desired appointment slot is not available, please contact the studio directly at 646.918.7777.
  • 2. Get professionally fitted and measured.
    During your fitting session, our consultants will take over 35 measurements to ensure the perfect fit. Constructing the fit of your garment is a dialogue between you and your consultant, which is why each of our consultants have years of custom tailoring experience and an in-depth knowledge of pattern making and clothing construction. A well fitting custom garment is the perfect combination of proper fit and personal preference.
  • 3. Work with our team to design a garment that is uniquely yours.
    Each custom piece we make for our clients is individually designed with plenty of extra details. Our consultants will guide you through the design process and help you personalize each piece to ensure it meets your personal taste and lifestyle. All consultations begin a PINTEREST board dedicated to you! This helps the consultant start a visual dialogue with you.
  • 4. Every inch of your garment is speced out and specific to you.
    After you have been measured and your garment has been designed, technical specifications and style details are sent to our team of manufacturers and production begins within minutes.
  • 5. Creating a pattern that is specifically designed for you.
    Every pattern is digitally cut for each and every client – no template pattern is ever used. This simply means you are able to fully customize your fit, your style and your design.
  • 6. Your custom garment is ready for pickup in as little as 2 1/2 weeks.
    With 24/7 production capability, we are able to deliver your custom items in as little as 2 1/2 weeks. And once the garment arrives, you will try it on again to make sure the fit is on point before you take it. Any further alterations are done here in midtown Manhattan. You shouldn’t have to wait to go fully custom

Do you have a showroom or storefront? Is it appointment only?

We have a showroom located at 9 East 53rd. St. 5th Fl. We are appointment only. You can book online using our appointment concierge or simply give us a call.

I do not live in NYC, how do I place an order?

We currently do not offer fully custom pieces to clients that not are local to NYC. (we are working on it though!) However, if you love a piece from our collection, we can make it for you in ready to wear sizes. For clients, who have an extreme drop, we offer separates sizing, meaning you can buy the jacket in one size spec and the pants in another.

If you are looking for something custom in design only, we can do that as well. Please call or email us for more information.

Do you have trunk shows or events?

We participate in New York Fashion Week twice a year as well as Bridal Fashion Week. We also throw trunk shows and special events in collaborations with our strategic partners. For invitation to these events or special promotions, please subscribe to our mailing list. We promise not to SPAM.
