Many women who find Janice Martin Couture to design bridal or evening wear return to have suits or entire wardrobes created in the months and years following. Whether feminine suits for “ladies who lunch” or “power suits” for attorneys arguing a huge case, these are suits that are versatile, fashionable, comfortable and wearable for many seasons. Often a pattern can be used multiple times with minor alterations so that the overall structure that works so well on a figure can be duplicated while the changing details make it appear a new suit in each incarnation. Fabrics can be purchased in succeeding years so that new items continue to work with the existing wardrobe… sometimes re-ordering can be as easy as a phone call. With all the fabric swatches that the studio keeps on hand, usually the only problem is narrowing the choices down to a few favorites.
Dresses continue to be one of the most difficult items for a woman to find off-the-rack, as a result, Janice Martin Couture has a large following of women who request a simple dress –perhaps it’s one that is made again a few years later with some minor size or design changes. Once introduced to something that is truly flattering and comfortable, many clients realize the rationale for couture as they realize their savings in time and money. “Closet clothing” often purchased on impulse and which just hangs unworn season after season because it’s not the right size, color or style becomes a thing of the past!
