Custom Design

The design process begins with getting to know you, your dance style and level, your music, and any other particulars needed. We offer advice on cut color and details for looks that will be the most complimentary for you. A preliminary design fee of $150. Is required at this point to proceed with your custom order.

Next, we will send you sketches along with swatches of fabric choices for your review. Once a design is settled on, production on your gown begins. You will need to fill out a measurement chart at this time.

All custom orders require a 50% deposit of the estimated price to begin production, and the balance is due upon completion of the gown. Depending on design complexity, and our work load, it may take from 1 to 3 months for the completion of a custom gown.
