Still looking for the perfect New Year's Eve dress? One luxury I allow myself is getting custom dresses made for events by my favorite local designers. I've already commissioned George Moskal to make my New Year's Eve outfit this year, inspired by this look I recently featured in a Vita.mn Holiday Fashion editorial.
METRO Magazine just published a story about how Christopher Straub, who's currently working on men's and women's clothing lines, is accepting custom orders.
He says, "Holiday is the time to be festive and have sparkles and ruffles and volume" and "Not many events can use glitter and rhinestones and sequins, but for holiday, definitely. Those are the pieces I like to do—the ones that have a joyous, festive feel."
Other local fashion designers I love who regularly do custom orders:
