Moving on from The design post it is essential to remember that an exclusive commission is very different to high street clothing, store bought garments are geared to commercial functionality, price and seasonal deadlines, however when designing an exclusive commission you can define the parameters of time, budget and extravagance.
The Toile: At the final design meeting the details of the project are discussed and all measurements are taken to develop the pattern. Once the final design is confirmed I proceed to develop a block. The block is the pattern and prototype toile which is used at the first fit meeting, this combines the measurements taken and the key elements of the final design to achieve the correct fit and balance.
