Consultations are available in person at the Dolls of Decadence studio in Birmingham or virtually via Zoom. Your consultation will be carried out by lead Dolls of Decadence designer, Paulinah. During your consultation, we will work with you to bring your ideas to life and advise you on ways you could enhance your Custom Creation. We will discuss the style of your dress in depth and agree on the finer details- shape, fabric, cut and colour. The overall style – be it the neckline, the skirt shape or length – is up to you! So come to your consultation equipped with ideas and inspiration.

Your body measurements will be obtained at your consultation or alternatively, you may wish to supply your own body measurements for your order; an order form with required measurements will be provided according to your request at the time of 1st deposit.

When providing your measurements, please ensure measurements supplied by yourself are correct and of a true likeness to your body. Any incorrect body measurements that lead to additional work and alterations on your order are chargeable, for which you are notified, with any additional cost added to your final and due prior to collection. Dolls of Decadence will source fabrics for each custom order from a variety of carefully selected, tried and trusted global suppliers. It’s a good idea to consider the colour and texture and pattern of the fabric you’d like for your custom order before your first consultation. Of course, Paulinah will discuss the different fabric options with you and advise you on how different choices of material will affect the overall outcome.
