With sustainability at the forefront of our minds, we encourage you to buy less and choose well. We strive to only create garments that stand the test of time and can be worn over and over again.
We currently operate on a made to order basis, meaning fabric doesn't get cut until there is a new owner excitedly anticipating her new dress. This releases us from worrying about predicting what our customers want and potentially having overstocks that then have to be either discounted or thrown away.
The made to order model reduces waste because we don’t overproduce inventory or cut into materials that aren’t needed. This ensures that there is minimal waste and no leftover stock throughout the year.
Because we don’t cut into fabric and produce a garment until it’s ordered, we’re able to be much more flexible with our collection and we’re not in the guessing game of predicting demand for colors, styles, and sizes. There is also an exciting aspect about not using precious silk and human energy until another human has committed their hard earned dollars towards it.
Our colours will change across seasons but many of our designs will remain permanent staple pieces that you can update time and time again. We work hard to bring forth new styles and are able to pivot our offerings easily to better serve our customer's needs.
***Made to order is sometimes confused with custom made. Custom made - also known as bespoke - is when the client meets with the designer and their team, usually over a series of multiple in person fittings, to create a one of a kind garment that is made exclusively to your measurements. Returns would be impossible with this method, and it's mostly reserved for the couture and bridal world.
