What do our clothes say … everything from socioeconomic status, taste and character to your self-image, attitudes and personality. That’s just how it is.
We do it every day, think of how we want to present ourselves to the world. How we want to be perceived. The pressure builds when we are having a special occasion that will be documented forever in pictures. How to cope? Get good help.
It starts with the venue, the feel of the event, if it’s a wedding the bride will take the lead of what image she wants to create. Respect that. This also dictates the importance of the dress, sometimes we just need to take it up a notch as with the mother of the bride or groom.
Mostly, and I do mean mostly, it depends on the fit, how the garment flatters your figure, your completion and your personality. That is where a good fashion consultant is essential. They will guide you to what looks best on your figure, what is appropriate for the event and venue.
Then what you need is a master at alterations, because a perfect fit says everything about you.
At Elephant’s Trunk we feel that our reputation walks in the door with you.
