Q) I am doing a celebrity fitting, should my tailor bring their sewing machine or just a fitting kit?
A) We are always prepared to sew on site, but sometimes it makes more sense for your tailor to fit the garment then sew at their own location. When determining if a tailor should bring a sewing machine please consider; How quickly does your client need the clothing? If they need to wear the outfit same day, we recommend a tailor bring the machine. Is there space for a tailor to set up at your fitting location? Will your client want to hear the noise of a sewing machine or do they value privacy after the fitting?
Q) I am stylist and not sure if I need a tailor, how do I know if I should book a tailor for my project?
A) Tailors are a great way to relieve your own stress and provide additional service to your clients. We recommend a tailor for the following reasons:
- Assurance your client will look amazing on the red carpet and / or shoot
- Anytime children or plus size models are involved we highly recommend using a tailor due to lack of uniform sizing standards within the industry
Q) I am working with a plus size client, what are the benefits of a tailor?
A) The plus size industry has a variety of sizes, and fitting your client will not be one size fits all. Below are the biggest reasons to use a tailor when working on any plus size projects: 1.) For photo shoots, the “sample size” usually will need to be let out and/ or adjusted to flatter your model 2.) The proportions of plus garments usually do not match your models features and will need to be adjusted to create flattering looks 3.) Swim, lingerie and bust details usually do not have the enough support and benefit from our tailoring tricks 4.) Having a tailor focus on the technical fit of plus size clients allows stylists and photographers more time to create beautiful images!
Q) Why do I need a tailor on children’s projects?
A) Children come in all shapes and sizes and usually require the most alterations during photos shoots. This is because they are usually hired for their adorable looks, not their exact size. Below are more benefits to having a tailor for your kids projects: 1.) They child model you hired may have grown substantially since their last fitting 2.) Having a tailor allows the stylist to adjust the clothing to the cast members, not the other way around 3.) The proportions of the sample garments usually need to be adjusted for each child. This allows stylists to get the exact hem length they need to show of the product.
