Anyone who has waited until the night before a black tie gala can tell you it’s just about impossible to find the perfect dress when you need it. Shopping for clothes in a brick and mortar store allows the consumer to touch and feel the products. But what you have in mind – a certain color, style, or fabric – may not be available. Searching for it can be a fool’s errand.
“Made-To-Order Fashion Goes Mainstream”, Forbes, Wendy S. Goffe, July 1, 2013
Custom designed, or made-to-measure, apparel is an experience sought after and appreciated by the most discerning women. It provides an opportunity to explore one’s own creativity and participate in the honored tradition of the atelier.
At Katie Fong, we particularly enjoy this collaboration with our clients and invite you to consider the experience for your special occasions, including weddings and daily lifestyle.
Our philosophy is to bring together the finest creativity, materials and hand craftsmanship to create an exceptional experience and a garment that will be treasured and enjoyed for many years. We strive to incorporate influences from around the world and pair them with the most exacting standards from renowned artisans in New York City.
Just as each made-to-measure piece is unique, so is the accompanying process. Generally, there are six integral steps to creating a unique garment. It is wise to allow twenty weeks for the entire process although it is possible to complete the process in a shorter time frame depending on embroidery, beading, and other embellishments.

It began with a search for “the perfect dress” for my son’s wedding. Katie was so easy and fun to work with. She sent me fabrics to choose from and listened intently to what I was hoping to create. In the end, I traveled to Greenwich and purchased a dress from her store that worked perfectly! I could have purchased many pieces, as her collection is exquisite, all made of the finest fabrics, with unique elegant designs, feminine, yet timeless. Katie is not only passionate about what she does, but she is also extremely talented. Once you wear one of Katie’s pieces, her clothes become very addicting and quickly become your first look when shopping. I now check out Katie’s latest designs on her website and on Taigan often, and look forward to my next visit to Greenwich just to shop in The Katie Fong Boutique!”
