Queen Gowns & Collars
for Mardi Gras
Queen gowns & collars
Welcome! So happy you stopped by our site. We create Mardi Gras Queen gowns & collars. We understand the business of Mardi Gras and take it very seriously! Debutante age queens exemplify their family’s esteem in the community. Thus, a gown should reflect her social station. Obviously, a Queen’s gown & collar should also embrace the traditions of Mardi Gras and the Krewe. Let us be your guide through design, fabric, and embellishment selections. Thus creating the perfect Queen’s gown and collar for you.
Inspiration for gowns & collars...
We use couturier methods when constructing our gowns & costumes. Without a doubt, couture techniques require time and patience, but they are certainly worth the effort. Each garment begins with a muslin. After fitting and altering the muslin, the next step is to reproduce the garment in the fashion fabric. We line and underline our gowns. They also have sewn-in interfacings. To achieve the desired color, we often layer fabrics as well as layering to create dimension. To add weight to the hem of a gown, we use faced hems. A faced hem not only adds weight but it creates a more luxurious folded edge. Lastly, our gowns have all of the inner structures necessary for supporting a collar and mantle.
Time & Cost
As previously stated, the methods we use require a lot of time. As soon as you know you need a gown or costume, please contact us. They require 4 to 9 months to complete. Therefore, the earlier we can begin work, the better for everyone.
A basic gown without embellishment begins at $3000. An undecorated collar begins at $700. The prices do not include materials. Once we know the scope of your project, we will offer an estimate.
