Getting a custom design made is the ultimate way to treat yourself and it will be a garment you can treasure for years to come. Nothing compares to putting on a garment that fits like a glove and matches your exact style and personality. Custom means the garment is fully created from the ground up with fabrics of your choice cut to fit your unique body. The patterns are refined through multiple rounds of fittings in-person to suit your exact measurements & posture like nothing else in your wardrobe.
We accept custom clients with a minimum budget of $1000/per garment & a minimum timeline of 3 months. Custom clients MUST live in Chicago or Louisville and be able to travel to meet in person for fittings. These requirements are necessary to allow for the best fit and allow time for every stage of the design process. This way, the garment can be made to the highest standard.
If you are instead interested in an existing style on VARYFORMdesign.com, you might be looking for Made-to-Measure or Made-to-Order, which you can read more about here.
Please fill out the questionnaire so we can get to know your needs.
Next, we will set up a consultation call to review your preferences & dreams for your garment.
After, you will receive an estimate & timeline for each step of the process.
Once the deposit is paid, we will meet in person for a measurement session & review fabric options. When we meet, I can create several sketches for you to select your favorite before patternmaking begins.
Over the next few months, we will meet for several fittings where we will perfect the fit & details of your dream garment.
The final fitting will be an exciting day for us both, as you'll put on the garment you've been waiting for and feel a sense of relief that the wait was very well worth it! We can celebrate over champagne or coffee & you will receive a framed sketch of your custom garment as a gift. Your special piece will be placed in a premium garment bag on a wooden hanger along with a care guide. You can enjoy a sense of confidence at your special event thanks to great quality & fit.
If you choose, we can also arrange a mini-photo shoot so you can remember the special moment when you put something on that was made especially for you.
