How it works:

Set up appointment:

Call 646-238-5053 to speak with Fabiola directly and share with her the kind of event, the date of the event and how you would describe your style (if you're not sure, no worries! You'll create it together.)

Meet with Fabiola and create your design:

Then set up a 45-minute appointment to meet with Fabiola at her atelier at 306 W. 37th Street in the heart of New York City's Garment Center. When you come in for your appointment Fabiola will start by walking you through her cocktail dresses and gowns and you'll both get a better sense of your personal preferences expressing likes and dislikes, you will then get to see sketches designed by Fabiola that show different possibilities and variations with an assortment of fabric samples to look at.

If you want something more specific and custom, Fabiola can do a personalized sketch for you on the spot that you can co-create from!

With you both agreed on your unique design, Fabiola will then take your measurements and you will pay in full before production is started.

Ensuring proper fit: The Muslin:

Before you leave you will make your next appointment to come back for a muslin fitting. The muslin is a prototype that is made based on your specific measurements before the real dress is made. It is used to make markings on to ensure that we have the proper fit for the real thing.

Muslin appointments take place a week later, or at your earliest convenience.

After we've had the muslin fitting and we see that the fit and length are right and we make the proper adjustments, we move on to making the real dress/gown.

The dress is made:

Three weeks later and your dress is ready for a fitting. All production is done in-house in New York City. If any alterations need to be made, we take care of them and have it ready for you 1-3 days after.
