I’ve always dreamed of the day where I’d be able to design a custom dress in Paris! If there is one thing you should know about me is that I love shopping and clothes. Unfortunately, being petite it is always difficult to find things that fit. I always see gorgeous pieces on the runway or even sometimes in shops and am thinking, “ugh I wish that came in my size.” With my engagement photos to Aaron coming up, I wanted to find the perfect dress, and more importantly a dress that fit. I’ve always wanted to design a custom dress that would fit me flawlessly, and I thought for our engagement photos would be the perfect opportunity. I just had no idea where to design a custom dress in Paris.
After what felt like hours of searching for where to design a custom dress in Paris, I stumbled across a brand called Dressarte, I’m all too familiar with two years ago, I ordered a cute top and a pink dress from their site, I loved the quality and I quickly contacted them to find out more about their new custom made clothes in Paris.

HOW THE PROCESS OF DESIGNING A CUSTOM DRESS WORKS:
Once I committed to designing a custom dress in Paris, I knew I had to do some preparation. The first thing I did in the process was to find inspiration. I scoured Pinterest, Instagram, and other fashion blogs to find a dress that would be a show stopper. In conclusion, I wanted a dress with two different types of contrasting fabrics. After finding a few different styles and inspirations, I sent over the ideas to Dressarte Paris. Within a few days they send me back a sketch of the dress design and a photo of the different material I could choose from for the top and the bottom of the dress. After much consideration, ultimately I decided on the bigger circles as I felt that the smaller circles would blend in too much with the gorgeous silk bottom.
