HOW OUR PROCESS WORKS
Our seamless process makes it simple for the most discriminating modern woman to experience the world of custom tailoring.
The Q. Contrary experience begins with your first consultation at our store. Mary, an experienced designer, will take the time to get to know you and your personal style, as well as your preferred color palette. The service she provides is much more than just making a custom garment. She will educate and guide you through every step of the fitting and fabrication selection process.
As a concierge for your wardrobe, Mary wants to know how you like your clothes to fit, what fit issues you may have and the purpose of the clothing she is designing for you. Whatever the occasion, a new suit that helps to communicate your executive presence at the office, a casual stylish jacket to pair with jeans or just a few shirts, Mary’s goal is to help you improve your image, look your best and be comfortable. She will take 15-20 measurements, have you try on some “fit” garments and take a few photos. Future appointments can be at her boutique, or she will come to your home or office to accommodate your schedule.
All the design elements that go into making a custom garment can be overwhelming, but with Q. Contrary, you will have Mary’s keen eye, design expertise and warm personal touch from start to finish. From selection of the buttons on a shirt, to the design of the collar on a jacket, to the decision to have simple patch pockets versus pockets with flaps, Mary will be able to guide you in making the right decisions. She’s not only a seasoned designer, she’s an image consultant and stylist that can help you look your best.
The last step in the process occurs when your garment is ready. We schedule a final fitting to ensure that you are fully satisfied with the end product.
