Demi-couture project

If there are any pieces you have seen at VENTURINI runway shows or on our website, come in and we can alter the piece to fit to you. Unlike couture which starts which are made to the client's specifications as part of the design, demi-couture takes already designed and made garments and alters them to fit the client's specifications. Alterations performed by our skilled seamstresses are included in the cost of the piece. Allow 30 minutes for initial fitting and 2 weeks until delivery.

Couture project consultation

An initial consultation is one hour with the designer. Please come prepared with project constraints (date project needed, constraints for fittings, budget for project). 

Consultation $75 (fee applied to project cost if you decide to go forward)

  • Full body measurements
  • 3 project sketches and fabric swatches
  • Follow up visit included
  • Please allow for at least 2 fittings before delivery of project
