CUSTOM WEDDING DRESSES *** CUSTOM EVENING GOWNS ***
We have offered couture made to measure formal wear based in Frisco Texas USA to clients from all over the globe since 1996. The Darius Cordell firm welcomes all shapes and sizes. So petite or plus size frames are not an issue. The women's clothing that is made by us for evening or bridal can be constructed in any measurements rather they are large or small.
In addition to making dresses for a wedding we also specialize in custom mother of the bride attire and all other types of special occasion gowns. Women who attend formal balls, galas or social events tend to come to us for ball gowns for those occasions. One of the reason we are favored by these socialites is because we can make a custom piece that can not be easily found on the rack at any department store or local bridal shop.
In the past we have had clients wonder how will the design translate from a sketch to the actual dress. To help alleviate some of the concern we allow for a very flexible return policy regarding custom bridal gowns. Our new policy regarding these types of purchases is geared towards making the custom comfortable. To ease the mind of those brides who are long distance or who want a custom gown but are worried how it will turn out we allow the client to submit a deposit that is basically 1/6 of the cost of the garment. We will then make a prototype of the design for the women to see in person. At that point they can either confirm the muslin or the client can request changes be made to their order. Once we confirm the shape and specifications we would then require the individual to bring the deposit up to the normal 50% mark. Once it is paid then we would resume all work on the clients custom wedding dress. If for any reason the bride is not satisfied with the choices they have made will allow her a one time exchange for a different garment. Most people who provide custom wedding dresses would not offer such a service. But because we feel so confident in what we produce we will offer this to the bride to help them feel more secure with their purchase. This is a one time option that can not be repeated so on the second time it is our responsibility and the purchasers obligation to make sure they are deciding on the perfect custom piece for their special day.
With that in mind just know that the process for ordering a made to order item (rather it be for mother of the bride or for another type of formal occasion) is quite simple. We ask a series of questions to help determine what type of clothing you are envisioning. We then formulate a few designs based on that information. When the sketches of the garments are completed we will then provide them to you for approval. Once a client approves the design we are ready to go into production.
As with most American companies in all USA industries once the design is finalized we require a good faith deposit of no less than 50% of the total estimate. The balance of your order is not due until your merchandise is produced and ready to ship.
We like to have approximately twelve weeks to make any type of dress. However in certain situations a rush order can be requested for a small fee. That fee is normally 15-20%. These rush orders can be made in approximately 4-6 weeks. But keep in mind the more embellished the item the longer it will take. So please plan accordingly when allotting time for production and the time of your wear date.
There are some fashion designers who specialize in custom wedding gowns and formal wear that start at a price as high as $3000. The reason for this can vary but normally it is because the garments are made in the USA by hand. Or possibly sometimes it is because there is a lot of work involved when working with a custom with this type of merchandise. Nevertheless, our custom evening gowns start at $800 and simply go up from there based on how heavy they are embellished or how intricate the design. So if you wanted a piece of clothing that was long and was solid beading on lace its price is obviously going to be much higher than one that had lace just on the bodice. Still, no matter what your price point may be we can work with you to try and keep your dress for the wedding inline with your preferred budget.
We have specialized in custom wedding dresses and formal wear for many years here in America. It is our wish that we get the opportunity to produce one just for you exactly the way you want it. We sincerely hope to work with you soon.
