Bespoke dress designer Lana Gerimovich with Alis Fashion Design has been making one-of-a-kind couture dresses for women in all shapes and sizes who cannot find their clothing off-the-rack. Dressing women that are not runway size 0 has became her passion: finding styles and colors that look the best for the person. Unlike custom made clothing which is made by customizing existing patterns, Lana’s bespoke designs are hand-crafted for each woman from beginning to the end including creating new patterns based on particular measurements of clients, sourcing quality fabrics, and crafting them with couture sewing techniques at her workshop.
In this recent shoot at Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix, fashion designer Lana Gerimovich collaborated with a professional plus size model Lexi Placourakis, who has been also sending her message of “confidence in women’s body” through her social media campaign called “Shooting For Confidence.”
Lana assembled a professional team of local Arizona women who also share her vision. For this photo shoot, Lana designed and created three bespoke resort looks based on the measurements that she took for Lexi: summer floral off-shoulder dress with slit, leopard print kimono swimsuit cover up, and red floral detachable wrap skirt.
While Lexi was wearing one of the designs, she said “It was my first time to wear bespoke clothing made for me, and it was perfectly fit to flatter my curvy body.”
We hope that more women will begin to embrace their bodies and realize that bespoke clothing exists to help them look their best because garments are made to fit them by taking a numerous measurement points and also reflecting who they are. This movement of “Beauty with a Real Body” is taking hold in the fashion industry and we are passionate about helping to spread a message of confidence and self-acceptance in all women from petite to plus size. You’re beautiful with who you are.
