Imagine this: ‘You are in a lingerie store with the just right atmosphere, you get treated just how you like - without pushy sales women - and all items you see can be adjusted to your style wishes and sizes. You can choose between models, types of laces and other fabrics, different strappings, really anything is possible. Once you have created your pieces, you will have your own tailor taking your bodymeasurements and has it made for you.’ This exact image was playing over and over in my head like a film until I took the step and became a Tailor in Womens’ Lingerie.
It is no secret that we all differ in sizes and taste and, while working at my day job in tailored suits back then, I decided our approach towards lingerie needed to change. It was about time to design a system where we actually listen to a woman’s wishes. I started Maison Nouvelle with one focus only, a tailoring service for those products you start and end your everyday with: Lingerie.
The moment you arrive, should be the moment for you to let go of the world for a second. We make you some tea, or anything else you prefer, sit down and first take a second to get to know each other. Lingerie is pretty personal and I believe it can change the way you feel during your days. That is why I want to make sure we find a perfect match for you.
During our appointment we will present you our different models to pick from first. But maybe you have seen something we did before, or maybe you have something in mind that we can make from scratch. There is plenty of room for your own initiative. We will first choose the model and afterwards the fabrics and materials. There are endless possibilities within lingerie design and we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you by curating the most delicate laces, finest silks and best quality materials. Once you have decided on your preferences in your lingerie pieces, you will be measured by our tailor, who will also draw your patterns and even create your set.
We put in an approximate of 6 hours of work for each set we deliver. Unfortunately this doesn’t mean you can pick it up next day. We have a delivery frame of 2 - 3 weeks before you will be invited for your first fitting. At the fit through it sometimes happens that the final flawless fit is not there yet, which is why it’s a fit through. We might come to the conclusion that we need to adjust some small details to have it perfectly following your body. This usually takes and approximate of 1 week before we can deliver. From that point you can either pick it up or we can have it delivered at your doorstep - we know you’re probably living a busy life…
By the way, your sizes are now registered which makes the process easier with a next order.
I joined the world of tailoring because of my love for the old craftsmanship. That is why you won’t find any laser technics or body scanners that will take your body measurements here. We will take the time to go through all details and you’ll be measured with an old fashioned measuring tape.
Feel free to come by to view your options without obligations. We love to have you over and will welcome you with some fresh tea, a good cup of coffee or maybe a glass of wine - if you feel like it. Let’s create a little Me-Time.
Me-Time is one of the most important values I live by. I believe that women have so much in their power to rule (at least) their own world without getting off road by all distractions of current society. If we could create a little more time for ourselves and our values, we can conquer the world. So take that time! Want some help with that? You can always send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and maybe I can start you up. How about a start where you put your phone and e-mail aside in the evening, just a thought...
Each piece is different and the costs are depending on design, fabrics & materials and if we need to start from scratch or go with a pre-set model. Get to know more about our pricing system by getting in touch with one of our tailors at email@example.com.
