De Luxe Designs & Crystals

"Elevate your Style"

Order Process

Manufacturing is charged at a rate of AUD50.00 per hour and based on the complexity of the design.  The more complex the design means the more labor.  I will do my best to work within your budget.  Basic costumes/dresses, with no embellishments, start from AUD150.00

CONSULTATION - (Please allow 1 hour per costume) After discussion on design requirements, fabrics, embellishments etc, measurements will be taken and where possible, I will provide a drawing and an estimate.  Please feel free to supply your own inspiration photos or drawings.

There will be a Design Fee of AUD35.00 per Costume/Dress in addition to the manufacturing costs.  If the garment does not proceed to production, then the Design Fee is still applicable.

APPROVAL - When the design and estimate is approved, a deposit of 50% is required before production can begin.  An estimate only can be provided at this stage as often during the process of design to manufacture, the style is modified and/or the embellishments are increased.

ORDER -  Once the deposit is received, materials will be purchased and the costume/dress is cut and sewn minus the embellishments.

FITTING - A fitting appointment is scheduled, although many fittings can be accomplished in as little as half an hour, please allow up to 2 hours.  Then discussion continues with regards to embellishing, i.e. beading, crystals, sequins, appliqu├ęs, hand painting, airbrushing and fabric dying.

EMBELLISHMENT - As soon as embellishment is completed a firm price will be supplied. (Embellishment costs and labor is challenging to calculate in advance and therefore the final cost may differ to the original estimate.)
