Custom Made for Women

At MAR, our Made- to- Measure and custom-made womenswear services give you a unique opportunity to create a very personalized wardrobe. With more freedom of choice at competitive prices, you can choose from a wide selection of designs and fabrics. Maria Karimi will personally receive you at her luxury Bespoke Room and will carefully walk you through each stage of the process, helping you create a beautiful women’s custom Power Suit, a custom dress, a custom gown or simply a fully custom- made wardrobe that will be a true reflection of your style and personality. Each one of these items will be designed, cut and crafted in our downtown atelier.

Our women’s MTM services allow our customers to adjust our designs according to their personal preferences. The process involves a selection from various collection pieces, according to the season. The client will then be able to have their chosen pieces customized to her preferences. Options ranging from silks and woolens of some of the best English and Italian mills to the exquisite selection of French laces and hand embroidered pieces by the designer herself, to the finishing touches of the lining and buttons, guarantee a truly personalized piece. A ladies custom made garment requires two fittings in order for the garment to be a perfect fit.

Bespoke

Bespoke is the highest quality clothing line offered by MAR.

The process starts with a first meeting with Maria Karimi at her Bespoke room confined in her downtown based atelier. Your needs are discussed and taken into consideration, followed by a fabric selection session. A second meeting is booked right away, where sketches are drawn specifically for you. You will be presented with a first mock-up fitting at your second meeting.

Each garment is cut from scratch, created and handmade by Maria Karimi and her team of highly skilled tailors with the best craftsmanship. The nature of the bespoke service is not only based on skills and physicality creating an exclusive bespoke suit, dress, shirt or an evening gown, but also the need to share and reflect your personality, lifestyle, while showcasing the aspirations of the MAR brand.

The bespoke method is a different and more elaborate approach to Made-to-Measure; the process is equivalent to that of true Haute Couture. Contrary to elemental MTM (where a design is first established and then adjusted to the client’s measurements), bespoke demands for the design to be sketched from scratch and created solely using the body as a canvas. The whole process can average 8 to 12 weeks following the first meeting with Maria.

The exclusive and unique designs that Maria Karimi creates for her bespoke clients is unparalleled with a distinctive touch added to the final piece, making sure that it suits your unique personality.
