The look and feel of any stretch-jersey triggers “easy-fit and comfort” in the mind but, that doesn’t mean that it’s an automatic sure-fit, even in the most streamlined designs.
Take this RTW fuchsia Spring 2018 Givenchy gown as an example. It has a pretty straightforward 1930s/1970s drape. Regardless, it still requires alterations all around – from the armhole seams coming in (especially at the shoulder cross points) to the entire sleeve and body coming in and re-shaped to the client’s exact measurements.
The true ROI of any luxury piece begins and ends with a proper custom-tailored fit, not the name brand of the label hanging inside that no one will see.
