The Haute Couture Design Process
Original EA couture designs are completely made to measure using over 20 individual body measurements. Our designer Erica, will work with you to create your vision. To decide which style is best for you, we suggest trying on one of our collection samples, bringing along a favorite dress and sharing your inspiration board. We will advise you of which styles look best for your body and advise accordingly. Your first consultation is complementary. There is a $100 non-refundable design fee. This payment will be applied to the final cost of your gown. We collect this fee prior to beginning your design process. After your initial consultation we begin to illustrate your gown based on the information and ideas we gather from you. A series of sketches are presented for your approval and signature. Once the final design is approved, a quote is submitted. A 50% deposit will mark the beginning of the production process, acceptance of the quote and our policies. The production completion date will be determined based on the dress design as well as fabric availability. We request clients provide an accurate event date to help us create a reasonable production and delivery date for haute couture garments. Custom/made-to-measure orders are taken on a first come first served basis, during peak season their may be a delay in custom production at which time you will be notified and added to our waiting list. We suggest allowing 6-12 months for made-to-measure gowns and intricate designs.
