1 Fashion classics: If you want to buy the right garment, focus on style oriented garments, cuts and embroideries that will remain in fashion for a long time. Couture garments can also serve as great heirloom pieces so its best to invest in something classic.
2 Fit is right: If the garment is couture then obviously it will be according to your fit but do tell your designer to keep a little scope for alterations as you may gain or lose some inches with time and would not want to discard an expensive item just because it doesn’t fit you.
3 Listen to the stylist: Do not interfere if your designer suggests some changes in the designs or styles you normally wear. While it is good to have a signature style, sometimes a stylist can bring about a pleasant change in your monotonous style of dressing.
4 Style sensibilities: To make your outfit the best purchase, do some research before hand to ensure that the designer you choose matches your dressing sensibilities. If you go for a kitsch designer while your style is more classic, chances are you will not be comfortable wearing it.
5 Packing up: Once the event you have purchased the outfit for gets over, keep the couture garment tighly wrapped up in a muslin cloth. Put some cloves inside the folds of the outfit so that no germs are gathered on the outfit. Go to the best dry cleaner to ensure that the garment is not spoiled during the process.
