Ready-to-wear or prêt-à-porter is the term clothing sold in finished condition, in standardized sizes, as distinct from bespoke clothing made to measure for a particular person.
Ready-to-wear has rather different connotations in the spheres of fashion and classic clothing. In the fashion industry, designers produce ready-to-wear clothing intended to be worn. Some fashion houses and fashion designers produce mass-produced and industrially manufactured ready-to-wear lines, while others offer garments that, while not unique, are produced in limited numbers. The later is what we aim to offer at Souraya.
Keeping in line with our love of demi couture, Souraya is often making one off ready to wear pieces that are available for you to purchase on the spot in the boutique. This ensures that you are wearing something very unique as more than often the fabrics used to create them are imported and hand crafted and very limited in meter age, therefore it is very rare that more than 3 are ever made.
Every ready to wear piece can be altered to perfect fit can be customised so suit your needs. For example a lace bodice can have crystals sewn on to it to make it more glamorous and luxurious. We can even make you a matching or complimenting hair piece or fascinator or even a lovely set of hand made jewellery to go with your unique one off Souraya outfit.
All of our ready to wear garments are made right here in house along with all of our made to measure designs.
