Custom designed wedding gowns, evening gowns and suits.
Sometimes an occasion just calls for something very special.
Couture is a mirror of your self, like a second skin.
In addition to our annual collections you are also able to create your very own hand-tailored gown or suit. Designer Emanuel will help you on the way to create fashion according to your vision.
The step-by-step process begins with a set of drawings by Emanuel and the choice of our European fabrics.
Couture dresses start at 2000€, Suits begin at 1000 Euro.
The final price will be calculated according to the hours spent designing, manufacturing and fitting the design.
This consultation can only take place with a previously booked “exclusive” appointment in Düsseldorf and costs 100€, which will be credited to your purchase afterwards.
In general we’ll need 3-4 month tailoring time for individual designs.
But we also offer an express-option which reduces the manufacturing time to 3-7 weeks. This Option is subject to a surcharge of 30%.
Please note that we will at least have three fitting appointments with you to be able to implement all of your wishes and reach a perfect fit.
Finding your perfect Style
It all starts with a glass of Champagne or a cup of coffee in our Showroom. You begin by describing your vision and your event. Emanuel will draw while the both of you are talking to capture the essence of your idea.
It’s a fluid process in which you are able to converse and develop your dream, guided by the designer. You will then chose fabrics from our selection of European suppliers.
When you are finished our seamstress will take your required body measurements.
Pattern-Cut and construction / Prototyping
Based on your design and measurements the pattern for the first prototype is drawn, cut and sewn.
Fitting the prototype and design modification for the final cut
Fitting the prototype to your body is the first step to reach perfect measurements. This pre fitting is to enable you to see your design in the rough for the first time. In this step we are still able to change the cut and design details which might not looks as good, as you had envisioned them.
In the end we’ll take all the changes back to the drawing pad and make the needed adaptions to your pattern, before cutting the final fabric.
Sewing and fitting
This is when we start to sew your final dress and manufacture all the applied details like lace, feathers or flowers etc.
In this first fitting some of the details will only be lightly attached, so that you are still able to change their layout or quantity etc.
We will also use this fitting to optimize the fit and comfort again.
Applications and Detailing
Now, the finishing begins.
We apply and sew all of the decorative elements in their place and close all seams.
Finally the dream has come true
Your final fitting.
We will check all the details and fit with you and ready your dress for pick up. If everything is perfect you will be able to take your dress home with you in one of our EMANUEL HENDRIK boxes or in a garment-bag
