No one else has anything like them, and wearing them makes you truely feel like the unique and fabulous person you are. A feeling like that doesn’t come cheap. Yes, customized fashion is more expensive than other options, but here are the reasons why it’s worth the extra cost.
Turn Around Time
Compared to ready-to-wear pieces, customized fashion can take longer to commission and create. Expect longer lead times due to the time it takes your designer to research, draft ideas, set up their studio, and make your piece by hand. Special fabrics or materials can take time to source, too, but are so worth the wait!
In addition to your designer’s time, you are paying for top-tier materials such as quality denim, silk, or the best crystal embellishments. These more expensive fabrics and adornments are necessary to ensure your bespoke pieces last for years.
