Still high from the Pret-a-Couture event last week at the Vlisco flagship store in Accra, I decided to start my own journey with the service.
In the store I was greeted by a brand hostess who walked me through how the Pret-a-couture service works. First I was introduced to the style options on a rack and then electronically. I then picked out my fabric out of the new SEE fabric Collection. Although the store was filled with shelves and shelves of Dutch wax print, I decided to focus my attention on the new prints on the block.
Next I was introduced to the skilled in store tailor who discussed my style of choice with me and how it would sit on my body. She took my measurements and showed me how she would arrange the designs on my fabric. We collaborated seamlessly. Finally a tailor who understood the kind of magic you could create with prints. Mirroring the patterns or complimenting my fabric with another to create more depth, excitement, to fulfill my color fantasies.
In two weeks my outfit will be ready, hassle and stress free.
