Maria meets with the client and they begin with a discussion on it is they like and dislike. Maria will listen to what the client is looking for and what it is they have in mind.
Some clients bring pictures from the latest magazines or a clipping of something they have seen and really loved. This is a great way to start in describing what you like, as it gives a clearer picture of where you’d like to go with your design.
Other clients have a more general idea, and with this and Maria’s design experience they can together define what it is the client seeks.
From here, Maria will give her expert advice on different materials, colours and designs to the suit the outfit. She will the go through her portfolio of many different outfits which she has designed in the past, showing the client what direction the design could possibly take.
After this Maria then sketches the proposed design, furthering what the initial conversation has established. Through the sketches the client can see what their design will look like, and once this is agreed on, Maria will then source the fabrics and colours to suit the design.
With the concept for your design established, Maria will begin to bring the agreed design to life. The client then meets Maria at her studio to for the first fitting. The studio is situated and a very relaxed and tranquil environment, helping to make the process as stress free as possible.
