How a Dress is Made
Alena Fede designs draw inspiration from many sources, including vintage and runway styles. During your meeting, Alena Fede will determine what sort of dress you are looking for, and either find a match from the collection, or begin sketching a custom concept of your ideal dress.
The selected fabric is arranged onto a dress form, the garments first step from design concept into beautiful reality. Using your measurements, the fabric is manipulated to accentuate the beat features and fit the body perfectly.
The different components of the dress are made from the pattern, and pieced together perfectly to comprise the finished product.
Alena Fede orders the fabric from around the globe, from New York City to European fashion capitals such as Moscow and Prague.
All Alena Fede dresses are sewn by hand, with utmost care and attention to quality and detail.
Embellishments and decoration such as beading are done by hand as well, arranged perfectly onto the garment. The result is a beautiful accent to an already exquisite, unique garment.
The Final Gown
When all is finished, the result is the dress of your dream, handcrafted to your exact measurements, one of a kind work of art is made exclusively for your body, and is as unique as you are.
