Why choose a bespoke outfit?

“Bespoke fashion is not about size anymore, it’s just you”

A bespoke outfit is ideal if you like to wear something that feels comfortable, is flattering on
the body, expresses all the right things about who you are and will last you for many years. Only bespoke clothing ticks all these boxes because it is made from scratch based on your specifications and is high quality.

Your Body proportions are decisive for the way you look

For me, many years ago, my realization that body proportions are decisive for the way you look in what you wear was a turning point. I discovered that the clothes in most shops, so beautifully and well-presented on mannequins, don’t match my body proportions at all. No wonder I never looked really nice in these standard-sized clothes.

Take a closer look at my body proportions. My shoulders, waist and hips are size medium. My back length is on the short side. In the shop I can only choose size XL, because my burst measures size XL.  That does not meet my wishes.

Nowadays I can create a medium size design and do a full-bust adjustment. I also take my short back-length in account.

So making my own clothes and being able to alter patterns to fit my shape was such a relief.
In tailor made clothes I look and feel fantastic!

Chairmelotte: Sophisticated fit for both walkers and wheelers

Over the years I’ve mastered the know-how and gained lots of experience.
In 2013 I started, together with my son who is a graphic designer, a couture label for people living in a wheelchair and we opened webshop Chairmelotte. We have fans and customers from all over the word.
In 2020 we made a switch from selling ready to wear fashion to bespoke fashion on demand, but no longer non-walking customers only! It’s my way of promoting and starting a true revolution in the fashion industry. It’s about normalizing the image of wheelchair users.

It’s about simply having a mix of fashion customers who can wear beautiful clothes wearing the same designer label. Bespoke Couture. For Everyone.

I can help you to find out which additions would boost your wardrobe. Let me advise you about colours, styles, fabrics… I will create garments that are perfect for you.
Whatever your body shape, you can look radiant and confident. Bespoke design and tailoring will do the trick.

Why choose my bespoke tailoring?

One tailor made suit-dress, one skirt, a few blouses, a bespoke jacket and a pair of matching trousers. Voila, that’s all you need for a great work-wardrobe. Check my portfolio collection of exclusive designs for both walkers and wheelchair users. Or let me make your clothing-wish come truth.

Custom Fabrics

It is essential that a design is executed in the right fabric. I prefer to use natural materials such as wool gabardine, viscose, cotton and linen, with just the right amount of added stretch id needed.
