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.
When we make a wedding dress for a customer, we help you think about not only the parts of the garment that show, but also about the hidden parts of the garment that make the body look awesome.
Our little workshop has been hard at work making dresses and suits for the many weddings that we have booked this summer.
So many amazing looks!
But some of the most fun that I have had has been working on the pieces for a wedding that is particularly important to me—my wedding!
The sketch shows the most recent version of my wedding dress that I am working on.
But the pictures show our engagement photos.
I spent so much time making the corset and petticoat that will be worn under my dress that I thought they deserved their own photo shoot.
Not too often that a wedding photographer gets a request to do the engagement photos of the bride in the undergarments that she will be wearing for the wedding!
But these aren’t just any undergarments.
The corset is made from a heavy denim with steel boning and hand-embroidered sea creatures.
The petticoat (which I will wear under the dress to make it poof out in the back) is made from a cotton twill with horsehair bands on the ruffles to make them keep their shape.
Both pieces are completely washable and can be worn for years to come under other dresses, for costume parties, and on the dancefloor.
We can make any style of corset or petticoat.
So if you are looking for something unique, just contact us and we will sketch something for you.
The groom is wearing some of our custom tailored menswear pieces (check out www.DenverBespoke.com for more of our menswear).
The vest is a military style regency piece made from seersucker and linen and is shown with a hand shaped wool felt cowboy hat.
We are a small couture studio located in Denver, Colorado and we make custom dresses and suits for customers around the world.
One of our specialties is making attire for unique and alternative weddings.
Why get married in a dress made in Asia if you can work with us to design every part of your look down to the undergarments?
All of our wedding dresses are fit using out muslin fitting technique.
For this, we draft a unique pattern to your measurements (we can mail you a measuring tape if you are a distance customer) and then cut and sew a rough cotton mock-up of the dress to mail to you.
You try it on and send us you feedback and digital pics, and we alter the dress pattern to fit you perfectly before we even cut the final pieces. (If you are near Denver, we can also fit this in person).
This means that we can make a beautifully fitting dress for every shape and size.
No worries about cup size, waist size, height. We start with your body type and build a dress from there.
Plus-size and petite customers are welcomed.
Our prices for a full length dress start at around $1200—but if you just want a petticoat or corset the price will be much less.
Contact Lianna K (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info and we will get started designing something just for you.
