Our made to measure couture service will always grant you the opportunity to wear garment that is far more superior to a ready to wear/off the rack garment.
You will always leave the Souraya boutique with a wedding dress that compliments and fits your body shape down to the last stitch. The splendour of having a made to measure wedding dress means you can see it all coming together, on you, during a creative process that gives you the opportunity to make any small changes along the way as we work closely to create your dream wedding dress.
Ideas or concepts, sketches and pictures are all welcome and they can all be created just for you. With Souraya’s distinctive design skills we can work together with you to design and create a garment that completely encompasses your personality and taste in fashion as well as complimenting your figure. With up to five fittings (depending on the style of garment) you are sure to end up with exactly what you have been looking for. After we have sketched up a few designs and made a selection we are ready to pick fabrics, colours and any trims or fabric manipulation.
We then move on to your fittings.
At Souraya we offer a range of exquisite fabrics sourced from places all around the world such as England, France and Italy. The fabrics we chose to work with are exclusive to Souraya and will not be found anywhere else in the world! This means you are guaranteed to stand out in the crowd!
Initially, your first fitting will be a calico (mock fabric). The calico is a stage we like to refer to as more for he designer than it is for you, as the calico seems to be far less luxurious than the stunning fabrics we like to use! The calico is the very beginning of the made to measure process where we can test measurements, lines and the cut of the garment on your body. Maybe we start with a straight strapless gown and then decide at the calico that a scooped strapless line would look a lot more flattering. It is this freedom you have with made to measure.
in the next three stages of the creation process you begin to see the garment come together in the chosen fabric. Your wedding dress begins to reveal itself right in front of your eyes and on your body with any selected trims being applied in layers to your garment. This step by step creative process gives you the chance to add or take away from the design as you see fit, with our professional advice. Sometimes it is easier this way as you can see it right in front of you and you’re not stuck with a generic style or design and fit that comes with a mass produced design.
The best fabrics, trims, crystals, lace, special fabric manipulation, colours and styles are the things we can offer you here at Souraya. We can discuss design ideas and show you samples of garments we have made and fabrics and trims we can use in the boutique. Together with expertise advice and unique distinctive design skills we can most certainly help to create a design that is completely you!
From sketch to creation you will certainly save yourself of visiting every store across town trying to find that exquisite and unique item of clothing, by just contacting our friendly staff to arrange a personal one on one consultation with Souraya; we are more than happy to help!
