How Alexia Alterations gives clothes a second lifeJanuary 12, 2019
If you are growing bored of your existing garments or have inherited your late grandparents vintage garments, do me a favour… don’t throw them away!! Firstly, its terrible for the environment. Secondly, what you have in front of you is a lot of potential to create a beautiful and most importantly meaningful garment you will cherish for a long time. We spend our lives giving clothes a second life by revamping them. At our luxury atelier in Knightsbridge, we don’t just adjust the measurements of your dresses and suits, but we also have some amazing skills at our arsenal to help you extend the lifecycle of your garments.
You probably value your old clothes or even the ones that once belonged to a beloved family member much more. However they can go out of fashion or get a little bit damaged. We see a lot of clients who bring their grandmas’ old dresses and ask, how can I wear this now?
This is often quite an emotional one, and we are so proud to somehow contribute to the history of their families.
For example, we transformed your old shirts into a little summer dress by adding some ruffles. We completely revamped a lady’s vintage YSL dress that once belonged to her late grand mother.
If you are only looking for a small change, we can infuse a new spirit in your old dresses by sewing some embroidery motifs or embellishments to your garments. We can add some sparkle to your collars, an edgy embroidered pattern to your dress or some beading to the cuffs of your sleeves.
We literally managed to turn capes into coats, skirts into dresses, dresses into tops… you name it, we can do it!
