We know that picking out the perfect outfit for a date with your sweetie may be vexing. Instead of going through racks of dresses and cases of jewels, why not get exactly what you want?
Start your dress-up-day with a bespoke dress from Penchant Dressmakers. The company launched last September, adding yet another luxury shopping experience to the City. The dressmakers offer you either a selection from some of their pre-designed dresses that they will tailor to fit you like a glove. Or you can go the full-custom route where you can build your dress from the ground up. The dresses are crafted by Garment District artisans and are exclusively made-to-order. They have a painstakingly hand-selected fabric collection that changes every season. To make an appointment and for more information, visit www.penchantdressmakers.com.
As for the accessories to go with your outfit, there is nothing quite as classy as bespoke jewels. Shamila Jewelry offers luxe, super limited edition jewels, in unique settings. You can choose from their collection or go ahead and get inspired on your own. Whether you want to go with fine and delicate, or upgrade to some bigger rocks for some sparkle, Shamila will make it happen. In the photo above are her set of stacking rings that are one-of-a-kind bezel set rings, in two tone metal, made with recycled 14k gold and custom cut stones. But she is able to work with you to find the perfect addition to your outfit of choice. The stacking ring set is $2,450. For more information visit www.shamila.com.
