There’s very little in life that’s more annoying than spending three month’s rent on a designer dress, and then having to spend even more at the tailor’s getting it altered to actually fit. We’re getting riled up just thinking about it–but thankfully, the people over at Piol Dress thought up a solution: custom-made frocks that you can design to fit your exact proportions online in minutes. Genius, right?
The great couturier Hubert de Givenchy once said, “A dress must follow the body of the woman, not the body following the shape of the dress.” A Piol Dress design is perfect because it fits you perfectly. The revolutionary system’s advanced made-to-measure technology was inspired and originally formulated by Hollywood’s legendary costume designer, Edith Head, who knew the bodies of clients Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, and Audrey Hepburn almost better than her own. An eight-time Academy Award winner, she believed and proved that women look and feel more beautiful in clothing made for their specific measurements.
Only 40% of American women actually fit into standard sizes, so what are you supposed to do if you’re part of the 60%? Each Piol Dress silhouette has thousands of possible combinations–but don’t feel overwhelmed. The system’s excellent design formula narrows down your best options based on hair and eye color, skin tone, and favorite style of dress. Once you’ve selected your choice, you’ll enter the virtual “Design Room” and view hundreds of prints, colors, and patterns made out of the finest fabrics from Italy, France, and Japan. See how each fabric will look on your dress, and with the click of a mouse, choose a neckline, skirt length, and style of sleeve–no draping or sewing required.
Finally, you’ll submit your true measurements, and voila! Your custom-made Piol Dress will arrive at your door in three to four weeks, after it’s hand-sewn in New York. Which should leave you plenty of time to fetch a thoughtful parting gift for your tailor… :)
