A focus on the perfect fit

It all starts with a sketch. The designer will then work very closely with one of our pattern cutters in the atelier to bring each product to life.

The pattern cutter creates what is known as a toile, using a cloth called calico. This enables the designer to see their sketch visualised. Once both are happy with the toile, the cutter draws up the pattern pieces ready to be cut.

Once the cuts are finished, they are handed over to our machinists to bring to life. If a printed cloth is used, you will notice all our stripes or patterns match perfectly at the seams, giving the premium finish we are known for. This prototype will then be shown in selection, where a key team decide if the design deserves a place in that season’s collection.

Once selected, the prototype will go through at least six stages of fitting and amendments to ensure the perfect result. At sign-off, our team of graders will digitally place the design in our full range of sizes on the cloth, aiming to use 80-90% of the fabric to ensure minimal wastage. We never compromise on quality and fit - it’s what we pride ourselves on the most.
