Consultation & Pricing

At your first consultation I personally meet with you to discuss your initial thoughts about the kind of design and style you prefer, the type of Wedding,Engagement or Party you are planning and the overall feeling and look you are after.
Thanks to my many years of experience, I am able to offer expert advice on design, color, and styling possibilities and together,we will brainstorm the dress design that will become the perfect fit for you.
STEP ONE: CONSULTATION
We offer a free custom dress consultation at Simabrew. During your first visit, we will sit down with you and discuss ideas for your dress.Bring any pictures of styles that you like, and we can use them as inspiration and as a guide to creating your own custom garment.During our consultation, we will discuss fabric choices, time constraints, budget, and any concerns you may have about the appropriate style for your body type and after take your measurements.

STEP TWO: SKETCHING/ DESIGN ILLUSTRATION CONSULTATION
Using the ideas discussed during the consultation, we put together several ideas for your custom made wedding dress,evening gowns etc. We will sketch/Illustrate and present you with a few options (You get to keep a copy of the final sketch, which would be fun to include in your wedding album). We explain each option to you and show you samples of fabrics that would work for each style.At this stage, we will have quotes for each style including options for added details and fabric choice.
Once a design is selected, we put everything in writing,an invoice/contract service will be emailed through to you within 2 working days.(This includes all schedule for your fittings up front, so you will know exactly when your dress will be ready. A stress free process is the only process.)
We require a 80% deposit of the total invoice prior to commencing the construction of your made to order gown. Invoices are valid for 30 days. We require a decision within this timeframe as fabrics need to be purchased and we need to ensure we meet your deadlines.

STEP THREE: FITTINGS
At this stage in the process, you are introduced to your custom-fitted, uniquely-designed creation.The number of fittings you will have will depend on the complexity of the design and how the fit is working out.
Typically, we do 2 fittings along the way to completing the garment, but this will vary based on each client.

Below is a general fitting schedule guideline.

First Fitting

This is one of the most exciting fittings.

Your gown has been fully created and ready to enter alterations. Gown is fitted and altered to client specification
Appropriate adjustments will be made to ensure that the dress conforms with the design set out in step two.
