Here is the latest batch of pics from one of the amazing weddings we worked on this year.
This gorgeous women’s tuxedo is cut from navy blue silk duppioni with a satin collar. Duppioni is a wonderful fabric for women’s tuxedos—both feminine and formal.
We make the best suits out there for women.
We do this by combining our skills in true hand-tailored menswear (we also run the site www.DenverBespoke.com) and our abilities to shape fabric to fit curves.
But not only that, our suits are awesome because they are designed for the clients.
Often a client comes to us with something part way figured out in her imagination and we work with her to turn the idea into the perfect outfit for her wedding.
We make suits for hundreds of lesbian weddings every year.
Each of them is a awesome event and an amazing chance for us to show off our best tailoring techniques.
The pics show one of our favorite suits of 2014.
This tux was made from a soft crepe.
Crepe has a gorgeous “vintage” look with a very subtle matte/sheen. The texture of the fabric is somewhat “pebbled” rather than smooth. The French pancakes are actually named for the fabric.
This fabric contrasts beautifully with the ultra smooth face of the “blush” satin we used for the lapels, pockets, and tuxedo stripe.
For the style, we chose a shawl collar style. This rounded collar is one of the classic menswear details and is found extensively on classic tuxedos. But here, it takes on a more feminine appearance and keeps the look from feeling harsh.
The pants are classic tapered leg tuxedo pants and feature a traditional tuxedo stripe.
We make custom suits for women all across the world each year—-most of our suits are for ladies who are not able to make the trip to come in for a fitting in person here in our studio in Denver Colorado.
To get the best fit, we use our muslin fitting method—-where we actually mail you a mock-up of the whole suit to try on before cutting the actual suit.
So if you are planning a wedding, contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us sketch something for you!
We just completed one of the most fabulous runway shows we have ever put on.
For this show, we focused on our women’s formalwear collections—-which is what Denver Dressmakers is all about!
We led off with some of our amazing suits, pairing some of them with cummerbunds and some with corsets.
We showed some of our rocking tailcoats and some of our cropped jackets. And we finished up with our mod tea-length dresses and finally a ball gown.
We don’t always show on the runway, but we felt that this was one of our best collections yet and we wanted everyone to see the amazing pieces coming out of our studio here in Denver, Colorado.
We even made it onto the front page of the Denver Post!
Everything we do here is couture—–which means that we can make something just for your event. So if you see a suit or a dress that you want in a different color (say for a rock performance or a lesbian wedding), just drop us a line and we will discuss how to design the perfect look for you.
Every year, we make clothing for clients all over Europe, Australia, and the US, and we would love to make pieces for you.
