At The Dress Shop we are getting quite the reputation for offering a very unique and rare service in our society today ~ “Haute Couture (French, for “high sewing” or “high dressmaking” or “high fashion”) refers to the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing.”
“Haute couture is fashion that is constructed by hand from start to finish, made from high quality, expensive, often unusual fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finished by the most experienced and capable seamstresses, often using time-consuming , hand-executed techniques. Couture translates literally from French as “dressmaking”, but may also refer to fashion, sewing, or needlework and is also used as a common abbreviation of haute couture and refers to the same thing in spirit. Haute translates literally to “high”. ”
“A haute couture garment is often made for a client, tailored specifically for the wearer’s measurements and body stance. Considering the amount of time, money, and skill that is allotted to each completed piece, haute couture garments are also described as having no price tag – in other words, budget is not relevant. Each couture piece is not made to sell. Rather, they were designed and constructed for the runway, much like an art exhibition.”
All this is included in the price of your garment at The Dress Shop. So come and visit us and get your custom Dominica Maazur piece made especially for you by our very talented in house Designer!
