If you'd like to place an order with us please get in touch via the enquiry form or send us an email, giving as many details about your project as possible. We will get in touch to discuss your requirements and provide you with a quote.
We will be happy to provide expert advice on all your questions regarding an order. You can contact us via email or make an appointment for a personal consultation in London. For a consultation we charge a flat fee of £50 (£75 for bridal appointments) which will be deducted from your total amount should you decide to place an order.
Due to the nature of our bespoke garments we recommend at least two personal fittings. Fittings usually take place in our West London studio. Fittings in our german studio or on location can be arranged on request (additional fees apply).
How to order
After your initial appointment we will supply you with sketches and fabric swatches and a first costing. As soon as the details and pricing of the costume have been agreed a written contract will be sent to you. A deposit will be required to book your slot, as well as an interim payment at the first fitting. The remaining amount will be paid at or around collection.
During the creation of your garment we will keep you updated with reports and pictures on a regular basis, so you can share the excitement of seeing your idea come to life!
Authenticity of historical costumes
When ordering a historical costume your individual needs and requirements have to be met and that is why only you, the customer, decide how period-correct your costume shall be. Of course we have to compromise because a 100% correct reproduction is not possible anymore nowadays. For museums, reenactors and other authenticity-aware customers we offer period dressmaking techniques. This means all visible seams will be sewn by hand, eyelets will be handembroidered and only period correct patterns and materials will be used.
However, we understand that for some customers 100% authenticity is not the most important feature of the costume. We will be happy to discuss options to suit your requirements and budget!
