WHAT IS THE DIFFRANCE...?
‘CUSTOM WORKS’ V READY TO WEAR?
All our designs are handmade within our Leeds based studio in the UK. This is where the design goes from paper to pattern to fabric all under one roof.
KerrieALDO started progressively, around 6 years ago, by offering a custom made-to-order coat service. As soon as I was able to dedicate more time to the developing brand, I designed a ready-to-wear range (aka any item listed in the online shop) to sit alongside the 'custom' offering.
For more information about the custom service, you can read one of our latest blog posts HERE.
But in this post, I really wanted to highlight the differences between the two.
Both custom AND RTW are largely made-to-order. The difference being with RTW we sometimes keep stock items and the average delivery time is listed at the bottom of each design page, if it is a coat or overshirt it may be listed at between 1-3 weeks and a dress or t-shirt might be 1-5 days. When ordering from the online shop, even if your order is being made specially, you are ordering the design exactly as it is listed – colour, fabric, size. The custom service is more specialist and comes with extra charges for an array of different options.
If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch through the custom orders page HERE.
In the meantime here are some of my most recent ‘custom works’!
