Because who wants to wear a mass-produced wedding dress? “Mass-produced” and “Wedding,” two things that ought to be mutually exclusive.
Instead we ask all about you, your venue, the expected weather. The things that inspire you, whether other designers, movies, or historical periods.
And we start sketching until we hit on the perfect style and look.
Then we make a muslin of the dress, a cotton mock-up of the dress for you to try on. For local customers, we fit the muslin in person. For long distance customers, we ship the muslin to you and ask for a few simple digital pictures that will aid us in discussing the fit.
The dress in these pictures is from a cocktail themed wedding on New Year’s eve. The dress had to do double duty for the ceremony and the cocktail party reception.
The result was a dress in champange silk duppioni with rows of hand-gathered ruffles and a bolero with handmade silk roses.
And the cost? For around $925 for this dress (depending on the exact materials) the price is still less than most mass produced dresses made from synthetic satins.
So why not get the dress that means something to you and is designed with you in mind?
Each piece is designed and made by Lianna K. and A.J. Machete. This is one of the original VigilanteLabs pieces, and one of the most popular. Cut from iridescent satin with almost gothic styling to the yokes, the hem length is immense, over 100″ in most sizes.
Like all of our pieces, you can customize it in any way you want. For $68 we can make it in any size in a shimmer satin and for a bit more we can make it in any color of silk charmeuse.
You can purchase the skirt now as a custom order in our Etsy store or can contact Lianna at email@example.com to discuss making the skirt in a different type of fabric.
Of course we can make almost anything you would like. So just contact us if you have a unique idea for something completely custom.
Imagine a pair of pants that fits perfectly on your body….
By making the pants in a cotton muslin first, shipping them to you, and then fine tuning the pattern based on your feedback, I can make a pair of pants that fits as perfectly as any are likely to do in this world.
You choose the fabric, the style, the cut…. everything.
The pair of pants pictured is a pair I made that fits me just exactly the way that I like. Better than any pants I could have bought at any store, especially on the hips!
If you already have a pair of pants that fits perfectly, you can send them to me to take a pattern and then I can remake them in multiple fabrics.
I can also offer a BIG DISCOUNT when you order more than one pair. And for all other pairs of pants that you order down the road. Prices for the first muslin fit pair are usually around $315.
Sometimes you want to look sharp, distinctive, unique. And there is nothing better than a custom-tailored suit to achieve this look.
But women’s suits are usually about half as nice as men’s suits and are cut from cheaper fibers and without the distinctive details. This is especially true if you are outside of stock sizes or don’t have the money to buy something by Chanel.
Our suits are the answer to this. We can make them a bit retro or in a fin-de-siecle style.
We can make them contemporary or ultra modern. We can pretty much do anything. And although our suits are more expensive than women’s department store suits, they are cut from fine wools and silks and are fully tailored and structured using quality menswear techniques that we have spent years perfecting.
Check out our men’s suit shop, Denver Bespoke, for more of our men’s styles and fabrics. Almost anything that you see can be transformed into an awesome women’s suit as well. We can get virtually any type of fabric in any color and can make vest with collars, unique pockets, and various cuts.
Contact us today to start building a suit in your size and in your choice of fabrics. A vest suit in this style will typically be about $725 including having us make a muslin for fitting. We send the muslin to you for feedback and pictures and then make a completely custom pattern, assuring the ultimate fit.
