A Versatile Tailored Suit
Have you ever thought about having a bespoke suit that you can wear for any occasion for ages?
Today we are delighted to share a story of one of our clients who was looking for a suit.
Name: Giana Location: the US, Singapore
– What kind of suit were you looking for?
I wanted a suit that would be versatile to wear to both work and to more casual settings; furthermore, because I live in Singapore where the weather is always warm, I wanted a suit of more breathable material but still well structured.
– Why did you choose Dressarte?
I came across Dressarte via the website Good On You, as I am hoping to make my wardrobe 100% sustainable in the next few years. I fell in love with Dressarte’s work almost immediately, as they use sustainable and long lasting fabrics, and of course it’s entirely customisable! In Singapore particularly, it is hard to find clothing for larger body types, which has always been frustrating for me. Instead of looking to spend a lot on clothes that do not suit my body (i.e. too baggy pants or cheap items), I decided to invest in making a suit of my own that would fit my body best.
– Your favorite part of the design process?
I think my favourite part of the process was sharing my ideas with Nathalie on what kind of suit I’d like, and finally seeing the design options. They were really hard to choose from as I am a huge fan of suits in general, but I’m so happy with what I picked!
– What are the benefits of designing your own suit?
As I have mentioned above, it’s very freeing to be able to design and wear a suit that fits your body. Sometimes when buying a suit, the pants may be too large or the blazer too tight, so being able to wear my customised suit so comfortably is a very special feeling. I also love being able to choose my own fabric, as often structured suits are made of wool or other luxurious materials, which can end up costing a lot! I am also very particular about colour, so it was nice to be able to just be more involved in the process in general.
In her own words: “I was so lucky to be able to collaborate with Dressarte on the production of a customised suit, something I have been wanting to do for ages! Because this was done remotely, I was a bit nervous as to how the product would turn out but I was absolutely blown away once I had received my suit. Not only was the material absolutely gorgeous, I was in awe of the tailoring and how well it complimented my body shape. It was really amazing to see 4-5 months of brainstorming come to life, and I am forever thankful to Dressarte for being so lovely all throughout and for the stunning suit”.
