We charge an initial design fee of £100 + VAT, which will be taken off the final price of the dress. Once the design has been approved, we will require a deposit of approximately 50% of the quoted price. Whilst we do our best to accommodate any reasonable budget, the prices for couture Latin dresses start from £1000 and for couture Ballroom dresses from £1600, with both prices subject to VAT, if applicable. Please allow between six and eight weeks from the date of order to completion of the garment, depending upon availability for fittings. If you require the dress in a shorter time period, please do let us know and we shall see if it can be achieved.
