Yesterday we posted a breakdown of all of the various skills and materials that go into designing and building a custom costume. Today we're going to use the rendering below to illustrate just how each of these things applies to an actual garment.

Say you wanted to make a dog costume like the one shown, and have it fit an average-sized adult. Seems simple enough, right? Buy some fake fur, sew a few seams, make a tail, and presto! But there is much more to this "basic" costume than meets the eye...

Fashion Consulting NYC

At Seek, we provide fashion consulting services for many different types of customers. We’ve aided men in revamping their dating wardrobes, helped women to rediscover their style following weight loss and pregnancy, and dressed teens looking to impress their peers. Many clients utilize our services just because they’re interested in a fresh perspective on style, and aren’t quite sure that their friends/sisters/boyfriends will provide an honest, unbiased opinion.

Fashion consulting services in NYC can be pricy--other fashion consulting companies charge hundreds--and sometimes thousands--of dollars for their services. Seek aims to provide an affordable, laid-back alternative. Our fashion consulting services are a reasonably priced $125/hour, and the minimum appointment length is just two hours. Plus, we offer discounted fashion consulting in NYC via offers on our blog and social media accounts.

Our
fashion consulting services consist of in-store appointments (spending a few hours working alongside an NYC fashion consultant while learning what colors, shapes, and styles work with your body type and lifestyle) and “in home” services, which are available within New York City. An in-home wardrobe edit allows clients to work one-on-one with a professional fashion consultant to analyze pieces they currently own, and to figure out where they might want/need to augment their wardrobe.

Fashion consulting NYC can be booked by sending an e-mail inquiry to info@seeknewyorkllc.com. Early booking is recommended for best availability.
