Nothing mass produced can compare to the feeling that a garment made specifically for you will evoke. This is a dress that has never been made or designed before, and no one will ever have another one just like it, except for you.

What to expect

when ordering a custom gown

Consultation

Our design house doubles as an atelier, meaning that all consultations, fittings and manufacturing are done in the same place, onsite.

Normally, there is some time before we begin working on the gown. I create the opportunity to get to know each other first, so I can fully understand what you're looking for from your dress. I never rush, and have always been told that I'm very patient. My studio is judgement-free.



To inquire, please fill out our short questionnaire to receive a price estimate.


Once the estimate is approved, we schedule an in person consultation, where we will discuss the color, style, shape, fabrics, and trims for your gown. We create, and agree on, a sketch finalizing all of the technical details. It is during this meeting that we take any necessary body measurements (30+ measurements) or create your unique body mold to ensure a good fit.
Depending on the occasion this dress will be worn for, and how complex the design is, the designer may decide to create a full, or a half prototype to check the fit at the first fitting. At this stage, fabric options will be presented and narrowed down. The number of subsequent fittings depends on the complexity of the design and time frame for the creation of your dress.

*Pricing for a one-of-a-kind dress is based on the quality of fabrics and the intricacy of its design

Fittings

The number of meetings depends on the complexity of your unique design. Please allow no less than 3 months for the production of your one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
I like to let the creative juices flow and may construct a prototype of your gown first, that way, we are 100% behind every detail before the gown is cut out of expensive fabrics. Beneficially, we have a little wiggle room for small changes. Since all gowns are one of a kind, I follow an organic process that is individualized for every client.

Communication

We are committed to making this an amazing experience for all involved. If you have any questions or concerns please let them be known.
As your designer (and friend), my priority is to help and guide you through this process. I am satisfied with our work together when you are.
The best time contact us is m-f between 10am to 6pm. We welcome clear and open communication (phone call, email) hello@agadesal.com  |  773.599.3485
