Your free consultation is your chance to share your ideas and create a dress that reflects your individuality and style.
Consultations can take place at either Scott's studio in South Yorkshire or at your home, for a small fee.
During your consultation you'll discuss:
- Your dress design ideas: Is there a particular celebrity's style you admire? What shapes and colours do you usually wear? How do you want your dress to fit?
- The occasion you're having the dress made for: Most made-to-measure dresses are created for a special occasion such as a prom, a wedding, a day at the races or an awards ceremony. Scott will make sure your bespoke dress fits the bill, whatever the occasion.
- Your budget: A bespoke dress is an investment. Scott will talk to you about your budget, what can be done within your price range and the payment options available to spread the cost.
- The fabric you'd like: Different textures and colours suit different people. Scott sources every customer's fabric to order, so he'll discuss with you the materials available for your dress.
Scott will also take your measurements at your first consultation, to ensure your finished dress fits perfectly.
Do I need to bring anything to my consultation?
All you need to bring is an idea of the style of dress you're looking for and any photographs or sketches that may help illustrate your ideas.
Do you require up-front payment?
A 40% deposit is required before fabric is sourced and work begins on your dress. This is refundable if a suitable fabric can not be found and you decide you no longer want a dress.
Following your consultation Scott will send you a quotation and a breakdown of payment instalments required. Once your deposit is paid, you can pay in as many or as few instalments as you wish. The balance must be paid in full before you receive your finished dress.
