"Ellen Wise designed and made the Chanel-style suit I have dreamed of forever. It is truly couture in every way. The fabric, the fit, the details, the way it is made - there is simply no comparison to the ready-to-wear suits I can buy. Ellen's fine styling, attention to detail, and knowledge of couture technique are exceptional. She scored a perfect 10 with my suit and I couldn't be happier! Thank you, Ellen."
A perfectionist at heart, Ellen strives to bring the best and most appropriate couture techniques to every project she undertakes. Quality is the utmost priority. Technique and attention detail are the elements that elevate Ellen's work to couture status. After selecting one or more high quality fabrics, the details of design, fit and painstaking craftsmanship build upon each other to produce a superior product.
"Unique" is the word most used by devoted clients to describe their experience with Ellen Wise Custom Couture. From the initial concept to the finished product, each step offers choices not available elsewhere. Because our fabrics are primarily sourced from the sample rooms of well-known designers, including Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Prada, Jason Wu, Emilio Pucci, Valentino and others, yardage is usually limited to the amount required for one creation. This "limitation" assures that a client's garment is the only one of its kind. From the exquisite European made designer fabrics to the couture details of the custom apparel we design and makes, everything about Ellen Wise Custom Couture says luxury one-of-a-kind.
