Rentals and Commissions
Thank you for your interest in my couture pieces, art to wear.
I offer several of my unique hand made designs as Rentals for photoshoots or special occasions. I'm also available for custom commissions.
Please visit my Rentals Lookbook on this website and other images can be seen on my Facebook page and Instagram @aliceandrewsdesigns
Rentals *start at $135 for a basic dress and parachute skirt. I also require a $250 refundable security deposit. Renter pays shipping which averages $25 in the US.
International inquiries are welcome!
I'm always happy to discuss custom commissions.
My Dresses are one size fits most, halter wraps or tank style. The halter wraps fit by the way they're tied at the neck and waist, and usually fit from a size 0 up to about a size 10.
I can easily make larger sizes.
The dresses are made by wet felting layers of fine silk fabric together using a thin layer of Merino Wool. There's no sewing involved and each one turns out unique. On many of my designs I incorporate antique laces and findings. I hand dye all my own work, so I can create any color palette.
I also offer an optional overwrap skirt to be worn over the base dress for a fuller, more dramatic look. Each skirt is machine sewn and has multiple layers of silk and/or vintage & upcycled fabrics. It's hand dyed to match or coordinate with the basic dress. I can also use layers from vintage wedding dresses which will be priced accordingly.
An unlined, hand dyed tulle skirt can be ordered as an add on to the basic dress or overskirt.
The parachute skirts are created from vintage US military parachutes. These range from pure silks from the early 1940s, rayon from the 1950s and ripstop nylon from the Vietnam War era. It's my personal preference to use these beautiful old pieces in my art, as they are rich in history, and I'm sure each has a story to tell. The fabrics of the eras are so much more beautiful than modern imported ripstop nylon.
Hand felted dress with parachute skirt starts at $1,100.
Overskirts start at $200, Tulle starts at $80.
I require 50% down and the balance plus shipping upon completion.
