This Site Lets You Co-Create Your Clothes With Top Designers
How many times have we all gone shopping (online or off) only to lay eyes on the would-be-perfect piece we’d love to buy if only we could change a thing or two about it? Maybe the silhouette isn’t flattering or the color and print aren’t to our liking. Or maybe the embellishments are just a bit too over-the-top or understated.
Getting started is super easy. Tinker Tailor’s homepage highlights which designers the site is partnering with, along with how much longer various partnerships will last. Current designers include Tata Naka, Vivienne Westwood, Preen, Rodarte, Marchesa Bridal and Alberta Ferretti. Awesome so far, right?
Simply click on a designer’s name to check out the customizable looks available, and then, once you’ve found an item you love, follow the on-screen prompt to select a silhouette, pick your fabric and add embellishments and finishings. AMAZE!
If the designer looks don’t happen to wow you, the site also features a tool that allows any fashionista to design her own Tinker Tailor-branded dress, skirt or top by choosing from a variety of house-designed silhouettes or by building one piece-by-piece. Once you’ve got the silhouette ready to go, you can further customize by selecting the fabric type and pattern, along with embellishments and finishings like a collar or beaded waistband.
Even if you don’t quite feel like designing your own item, Tinker Tailor’s online shop showcases house-designed pieces, along with designer jewelry, shoes and handbags ideal for dressing up any outfit, whether custom-crafted or not.
Being luxury pieces, most items on Tinker Tailor are priced anywhere from the mid-hundreds into the thousands. But if you’re after high-end fashion, it’s worth a look! Be sure to check out The Thread, Tinker Tailor’s online magazine, and get ready for their forthcoming app too. With custom-designed styles gaining momentum, we can’t wait to see what else Tinker Tailor comes out with.

The idea of home took on a whole new meaning as soon as sheltering in place and lockdowns became a regular thing in 2020. And it wasn't all bad. We got back to cooking at home, bonding with our partners/families/housemates and pets, and we did a bit of redecorating. In fact, home decor and furniture sites saw huge growth (more than a billion global visits in March 2020 alone) as a result of the pandemic.

"We're embracing <em>friluftsliv</em>, the Norweigan concept of getting outdoors – think of it as the new hygge."

"I think Grandmillennials and sustainability actually go hand in hand. This trend is all about younger generations who love design and decor that we might culturally view as "old lady" or grandma-ish," says Alessandra Wood, VP of Style at online interior design service <a href="http://modsy.com/" target="_blank">Modsy</a>. That means ruffles, Victorian wallpaper like William Morris prints and antiques, anything you'll find at a flea market or your grandma's garage!</p>
