The Elite Couture Collection
Each piece in all our collections are designed an attention to detail that represents custom bespoke techniques, exclusive made fabrics, and custom finishings. Shawna is known for ornate hand-embroidered appliqués, intricate custom made laces, and exquisite trim detailing. Our unique laces are custom made exclusive to our label and produced in house with an emphasis on boutique and handcrafted processes.
We wanted to emphasize how sustainability plays a large role in our brand's production process. We only produce limited quantities in each style/ size to avoid excess inventory and fabric waste. However, each piece can be made to order as well if a certain size or style is out of stock. Made to order gowns cut down on excess inventory cost and are made directly for that consumer. We only work with the highest quality factories that produce in an ethical and responsible way. Our partners agree to abide by our Code of Conduct regarding ethical practices, health and safety standards, fair wage and workers rights. All of our factories are not only compliant but are under a mutual agreement contracted policy.
Custom Made Exclusive Fabric & Laces
Our custom fabric developments, exclusive lace embroidery artwork from sketch to swatch, and hand appliqué process we wanted to be set apart with materials that you cannot buy at the markets. Custom fabric creation starts with a sketch of the fabric, on to the dying of the materials, to the final stitching swatch. It is a very detailed process that requires unique attention to detail. All samples go through multiple quality checks during the production process. From fitting, to changing of structural or fabric details, to the adding of little finishes to make them absolutely perfect. No detail is left out, and no design hits the runway until it is completely approved by our designer herself.
The Unique Details Take Extra Time
We take pride in knowing that quality design practices and small-scale handmade production take time, resulting in lasting pieces that do not tarnish with wear. Custom made fabric and laces are a lost-art when it comes to the fashion world. Shawna wanted to take a different approach to make her collection stand out among the rest. With her high level skills such as hand-sewn embroidered gowns, which require hundreds of hours to fabricate. Although it may be quite more expensive; we wanted to emphasize this art in each of our styles and can guarantee that no other dress will compare to the hand-crafted detailing in our pieces.
