Please contact Olivia to arrange a comprehensive consultation and to request a detailed online bespoke couture proposal. Consultations are available face-to-face, by telephone, email and online via Zoom.
The Bespoke Commission Process
Once approved, a bespoke couture proposal establishes an agreement between Mooshi Couture and the client. The client’s measurements are then recorded and a sample toile or sample embroidery is made. For long distance clients, these can be shipped and fitted/inspected with a viewing consultation over Zoom or the client's preferred online video conferencing service (e.g. Skype or Messenger).
More than one toile and additional fittings may be required to ensure the client is satisfied with the comfort, fit and appearance of their bespoke order. Olivia can fit toiles on a custom sized mannequin in her studio and send photos of the fitting and couture production progress to the client by email. Long distance clients always receive instructions on how to take their measurements and fit their toile.
Embroidery designs can be resampled and shipped for further changes until the final design and materials are agreed. Please note this can delay the completion date of the commission and additional time needs to be allowed for this.
Bespoke Vintage Couture Reproductions
Mooshi Couture stocks an exclusive and limited collection of vintage dress patterns including Vogue Paris Original Couture from the 1930's to the 1960's by designers Jean Patou, Lanvin Castillo and Jean Desses. These are available in a limited range of sizes that do not correspond with today’s clothing size conventions for women’s wear.
Depending on their complexity, Olivia can resize or alter a vintage pattern to a modern size ranging from size 8 to 18 and will accommodate bespoke requests within this range. Sizes of stocked vintage patterns can be found in the pattern’s description. Our vintage pattern inventory will be available for viewing on Mooshi.com.au soon. If your size is not shown, please contact us about resizing the pattern to your size or creating a bespoke size pattern for you. We cater from size 8 to size 18 (Australian sizes).
Materials available for bespoke orders may also be limited at any given time and re-ordering of materials may cause delays in fulfilling a bespoke order. Materials are also subject to market availability. Olivia will offer an alternative option or options in consultation with the client as necessary. Olivia will also consider requests from clients wishing to use their own patterns or materials for bespoke production.
