There is nothing better than having a piece of clothing that fits you perfectly. Whether it is those jeans that make your bum look great or that dress that cinches in all the right places, whatever it is, there is no denying that great fitting clothes can really perk up your day. So make sure that you have at least one piece of clothing that fits just right, with your very own couture.

Couture sounds like something that is only for the rich and famous; we hear about it all the time coming from Paris, Milan and New York, but never from Adelaide. The fact is couture is something everyone can own. It just means a piece of clothing that is fitted and made to order for a specific customer. Having a piece of couture made means having complete control over your item of clothing, from the style you want to the perfect fit.

Take a look at some top Adelaide designers who can all design you a gorgeous piece of couture.
