The Design Process
Designer Richard Beckel draping a design.
Whether for day, evening, special occasion or bridal, when you buy a Primeau you purchase a personal fashion experience. Clients will enjoy working with designer Richard Beckel in his salon and workroom. There are several design options:
- Couture: A French term for fashion designed and made-to-order just for you. Couture fashion features fine fabrics and uses hand-executed techniques rather than mass production. The process is amazing - from the initial fashion concept sketch, to being fitted in a muslin of the design, to the crafting and fitting of the final garment.
- Demi-couture: Semi-custom fashion in which an existing Primeau design is made and custom-fit for just you, using a fabulous fabric the designer has selected to match your style and fashion personality.
- Prêt-a-porter de Luxe: Prêt-a-porter de luxe refers to high-end designer garments that are ready-to-purchase, however the garment is still be hand-finished and custom-fitted.
