  • What is the made-to-order/pre-order process?
    We are unique to most brands due to our Made-to-order model. As part of our customizations for every garment, fair trade ethos, and to reduce our carbon footprint on this Earth, we create each dress only once it is purchased. Handmade to order in our Los Angeles Studio, each item has a different turn around time, which is stated on each product listing. Please read product listings thoroughly and add shipping times stated below. We are trying to eliminate the fast-fashion model and shift towards a slow fashion model. This means that your item will be made specially for you by our own in-house team. HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: Step 1: Your order is placed. If needed, we will contact you to get your measurements. Once your measurements are received, your order is processed and scheduled for production. Step 2: A pattern is created or chosen based on your size and/or measurements. Step 3: Your fabric and materials are checked and then cut to your style and size. Step 4: Your cut fabric is then allocated to one of our talented artisans for sewing. Step 5: All the final finishes touches such as trims and labels are added to your sewn garment. Step 6: Your garment proceeds to the last quality check. Step 7: Your finished garment is packaged and wrapped, ready to dispatch from our Los Angeles Studio. Production time depends on the item, check product description for turnaround time. Step 8: You will then be notified with a shipping confirmation. All orders are shipped with USPS, UPS, or DHL (International Orders).
