CAN I VISIT THE ATELIER?
Carmelina Raco’s Atelier is open from Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm to 5pm, on Saturdays only by reservation. In order to offer the best service to customers, we recommend you to take an appointment.
HOW CAN I BUY A CARMELINA RACO’S SUIT?
In order to purchase an exclusive Carmelina Raco’s suit Carmelina Raco, it is advisable to take an appointment. The customer, once in the Atelier, will see the sketches, the moke-ups and the suits we already made. Subsequently he/she can choose the fabric and will receive the most suitable proposal based on the occasion he/she needs the suit for and his personality. We will take measurements and start building a made-to measure moke-up for a first trial, then after the necessary changes we will make a second and third trial, and we will finally come up with the optimal realization of the suit.
WHAT ARE THE DELIVERY TIMES?
To guarantee the excellence of a suit, delivery times can vary from 1 month to a maximum of 2 months for the first dress, during which we build a customized moke-up. If, on the other hand, you are already our customer, by using your made to measure moke-up, delivery times are considerably reduced.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THE DRESS?
For an appropriate maintenance of your suit, do not hesitate to ask us, we will be happy to provide our customers with the best advice.
HOW LONG DOES A MADE-TO-MEASURE CARMELINA RACO’S SUIT LAST?
A tailored suit has the advantage of lasting a lifetime if preserved with care by the customer. Unlike industrial processing, a dress with manual processing can be widened or narrowed in circumferences to be adapted to the client’s body at any time without losing its value and its indissoluble character over time.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TAILORED SUIT AND A NOT TAILORED ONE?
A tailored suit represents the soul of those who create it and combines an exclusive design, a made-to-measure bespoke making and the client’s personality, with an infinite space-time unique and absolute value. All this, on the other hand, is not possible with an industrial made suit, whose fabric, as well as the other materials, often lose consistency, and often show wearability defects, which are completely non-existing in tailoring. Made-to-measure represents a far from common standards perception of the garment.
I HAVE SEEN A STYLE I LIKE: CAN I ASK FOR SOME CHANGES?
Absolutely yes. All the models are in evolution according to the silhouette of the customer who can request the realization also in other colors and fabrics that we will propose. All our work follows the principle of improving each style directly on the customer’s silhouette.
