Orhan London Tailoring
Nothing to wear?
You’d love a little something from Bond Street. If only the price tag weren’t so laughable.
Orhan Kaplanbasoglu could be the answer. Give this reputable Turkish tailor a favourite garment (with or without your own fabric) or show him a magazine picture of something you’re in love with (but can’t afford). He’ll copy it and make it fit like a glove. He also has his own range of classic suits and dresses that can be made up in any material.
Kaplanbasoglu creates a calico template during an initial fitting; a week later, your custom outfit is ready. Of course, going down the bespoke route isn’t cheap. At around £200 for a cocktail dress, it’s an investment, but you won’t find anyone else sporting the same piece.
And when it’s mistaken for the designer must-have of the season, you can simply smile.
Who’s in stitches now?
Its so nice to hear of fellow turkish people in the fashion world.. and this service sounds amazing, and just in time for my 21st! :-)
