This depends on the complexity of the design and whether it’s a made to measure gown or a demi couture gown. A first fitting for a made to measure gown usually involves fitting and finalising the foundation shape on you after which most of your gown will be made ready for your next fitting. Any trims and embellishment will also be added before your final fitting. Your final fitting is when you will see your completed gown. You will have a final try on to ensure the gown is finished to your requirements before taking it home with you.
