Process

Designing

Original designs are sketched, draped on a form, or created through pattern manipulation. Many things are considered in the design process. Not only creating a flattering fit, but also function and comfort.

Process

Hand-Patterning

Designs are drawn and drafted as a master pattern. This is the intensely mathematical rule following/rule breaking fun of designing, which could take months to finish.

Process

Fitting a garment

Every design is meticulously fit, meaning a sample is made and any needed adjustments are marked and transferred to the master pattern. This might be done up to 10 times to get the best fitting piece.

Once the fit is perfected and all adjustments are made, it is then translated into different sizes.

The final touches

The best fabric is chosen for each design and carefully cut and marked for sewing. The highest quality construction techniques along with interesting finishes and closures make each coat a special piece that you will treasure for years to come.
