Tailor vs Designer:  Defining

Tailor vs Designer: Defining "Custom Gown" by context

First:  Your Design Itself Tailors are not designers.  They are not interested in a full consultation to delicately discuss your body type, amazing venue, your motif, relationship saga, or educate you on fiber vs weave, when to splurge vs save on which fabrics, how to infuse personal details, or review trends from runway.  They need you to tell them what you want.  On the other hand, I want to hear every bit of what I just listed, and then I'm going to make suggestions based upon my design aesthetic and find the place where our styles overlap and squeals erupt....

So I'm a gown designer-manufacturer. I'll share that disclaimer right up front, but this fact only serves to explain how I know what I'm about to tell you. I offer two services, on two ends of a spectrum. On one end, the way that's done locally, with a ton of fittings, a mockup dress, and an appropriate luxury price point. On the other end... a budget-friendly option made at our factories overseas. If I can do it, you can, too!  Right?  Well...HA!  I'm sorry; I shouldn't laugh, but that meme gets me everytime.  Wrong, I'm sorry to tell you, because what...

Friends and family got the inside scoop before the holidays, but YOU may have just noticed our new addition...our original prints on CASUALWEAR!  It's a labor of love creating one of these prints.  This watercolor inspired by our the amazing Maggie of Bramble & Bee took me nearly 22 hours from painting through digital assembly.  I love how it turned out, love it in a handful of different colorways, and couldn't stop with gowns.  I had to find a way to put it on my body for lazy Tuesdays.  Who's going to tell me to keep my couture on a shelf?...

Bridal Extravaganza! Winter Wrap-Up

Our gallery of fantastic is on Facebook, but here are some sneak peeks! We debuted a handful of new styles with more bling and soft florals.  Heard great reaction on our new look.  I credit it to the fancy sign hubs made.  Schnazzy! I can only ever take partial credit for how awesome these ladies look on runway.  They woke up gorgeous.  But then The Fairest One got ahold of them, and that magic sure didn't hurt either.   See something you love?  Drop me a line about a visit!  


Quirk and sophistication blended flawlessly. 

Whether longhorns or sentimental florals, the inspirations are what make Renegade gowns memorable.  We love to help you make your statement.
