Bespoke Tailoring & Alterations
A modern history of tailoring
Traditional tailors have a rich history dating back to the early Middle Ages. They had great influence over the fashion of the day. Modern times see people of all shapes and sizes, some unable to find their well-fitted suits in department stores, seeking clothes to fit them rather than fitting themselves to clothes.
Ferudun grew up in Turkey immersed in the family business of traditional tailoring and dress-making
He immigrated to Australia in 1990 and – as well as being an accomplished tailor –he started offering service contraction of tailored garments
Ferudun Avar is expert in the techniques of classical tailoring. His professional life has been divided into two careers – custom tailoring and teaching.
Ferudun Avar brings a lifetime of tailoring and design experience to his work. A rich knowledge of people and professions that allows him to guide others in choosing fabrics, styles, colours.
The design process begins with a conversation, so that we can understand who you are, what you do, your personal style and tastes, and other details that will influence the kind of garments that will allow you to express your best self.
Your body type, posture and measurements are also a vital part of the design process. Each person’s body is different, and the garment must be shaped to suit you precisely.
Fabric & Cut
First, the fabric is chosen. We have a wide range of quality fabrics to choose from and can guide you with this. Then, we design the overall cut and shape of the garment. This can include discussing ideas regarding the style of lapels, collar, pockets and cuffs.
Thirdly, the buttons – a surprisingly important decision! The colour and size of the buttons you choose for the garment is an elegant and subtle way to express your good taste and personal style. The lining is next, a great way to demonstrate personal flair or subtle sophistication.
