Once you have contacted us and placed your order, you will be invited to the Zelia Vanderpuije studio for a consultation that lasts between 30 minutes to an hour.
During this consultation you will discuss design and fabric ideas, to help realise your idea in three-dimensional beauty. All designs are created exclusively at the Zelia Vanderpuije studio.
We mutually agree on the design sketch (please note this cannot be changed during the manufacturing process.)
After this design changes can only be made during the fitting stage, however these changes will be minimal e.g. shortening the length or making the garment more fitted.
Next it’s up to us to turn your dream design into a reality.
This will take approximately 1 – 6 weeks following the consultation, depending on the design complexity.
It’s time for you to visit us for a fitting and sample the outfit that has been made for you
Please note there will be a single fitting stage only and it is advisable that you come in for a fitting to make sure the garment fits to perfection. This session lasts a maximum of 2 hours and you will be able to try on the toile/sample version as well as the actual fabric version. Once the fitting is completed, we will discuss the final fabric choice if required.
You are welcome to bring your own fabrics.
If you would prefer to use the fabrics sourced by us, there will be an extra charge to your balance.
When you come for the fitting you can bring payment with you.
Once it has been cleared, you can return for your garments on the specified collection day.
