Made to Measure
The LAKAN collection includes a variety of pre-designed silhouettes, including two-piece suits, double- and single-breasted jackets, trousers, vested shells, skirting, and shirts. Our clothiers have an eye for silhouettes and styles that flatter a woman’s physical form, and we are here to guide you in making selections that complement your needs and lifestyle.
Every garment is made in New York City by a team of highly skilled master tailors and under the direct supervision of our in-house NYC-based production team. All of our jacketing and other core silhouettes involve an intricate level of hand stitching and thoughtful craftsmanship to enable the highest quality of fit, form and function.
I. Initial Consultation
Our process is designed to guide you in choosing garments that complement your personal style, figure and lifestyle. During your initial consultation, our team will work closely with you to determine fit preferences, sizing and initial measurements, as well as explore studio collection silhouettes and fabrics. Initial consultations may be completed in our New Orleans studio, at home (virtual), or at one of our partnered ‘‘trunk shows.’
II. Selection of Silhouettes, Fabrics and Detailing
Throughout the process, we work closely with you to curate a look that is tailored to you and your lifestyle. You will have the opportunity to browse our signature silhouettes and choose from an assortment of the finest quality fabrics. Made-to-measure garments are made in New York City and are typically ready within 3-4 weeks, unless otherwise noted. If you have an event date in mind, please be sure to mention your intended delivery date at the time of your initial consultation.
III. Fittings & Alterations
Once your custom garments are ready, we will schedule a follow-up fitting (in-person or virtual) to review the fit together and determine any adjustments or minor alterations that need to be made. Our fitting and alteration processes are thorough, ensuring you feel confident and comfortable in each piece.
