Why should I have a fashion designer?

Body Proportions

Regardless if you are slinky and slender, or curvy and voluptuous, your fashion will be designed to fit you perfectly, adding extra here or making you more thin there.

Be Different

Do you want to have the same dress that your friend bought a week ago? If your fashion is designed, it can be different, a custom designed fashion item just for you.

Within Budget

If your budget is low or high, it makes no difference. There is always a way to design a dress within your budget.

You have choices

You decide on fabrics, finishes and the way your dress fits. A short pleated skirt or a long ankle length dress. The choices are infinite.

Its a great experience

Having your fashion designed for you is an exciting experience. Nothing will fit better than a fashionable outfit designed by Marisela.
