Some Reviews and Comments
Information on Consultations, Pricing, Payment etc
Claro-Creations came about from a need to create outfits for myself, as I am not a standard size or shape! I was in the fortunate position to be able to add to my skills by calling on the expertise of family members, who between them have decades of experience in fine tailoring and dress making.
Soon I had requests to do likewise for friends and clients. It seems there are a lot of us who are not “standard”! Also, it’s rare to find off-the-peg items in the right fabric, colour, style or fit. Also, sometimes, it’s just lovely to have something unique and personal, designed and made just for you. Over the years this developed into the business it is today.
I work from my little studio in Devon where I make everything from start to finish including design, sourcing materials and construction of all my lovely creations. As a result I am in full control of every process but it also means I have to put limits on the volume of work I can take on. So please contact me as soon as possible.
Enormous gratitude and a huge thank you to everyone for all your lovely comments and reactions to your Claro Creations - I am so lucky to be able to do what I love.
A little about Claro Creations
Your Claro Creation involves a 4-step Process
Step 1 - Consultation, Design, Price and Deposit
Step 2 - Purchase of your Fabrics and Accessories
Step 3 - Construction
Step 4 - Final Payment and Delivery
Every Claro Creation is made from scratch, so please confirm your order in plenty of time.
I am already scheduling Construction time-slots for 2022!
A Deposit of 50% is required to to confirm your order and to fix your time-slot for Construction and Fitting (see “More Information” for further details). Your Deposit will be used to offset the cost of purchasing all your materials well in advance. We will also set a Completion Date, to fall usually a few weeks before your event date.
To guarantee their time-slots, a number of clients pay their deposit a year or more in advance, especially if their event is at a busy period (summer). Despite the long gap between the Consultation and Construction steps, please be assured that once your Deposit has been settled, all your items will be Constructed and Delivered by the agreed Completion Date. Please let me know if your contact details change so that I can contact you when nearing completion. People have been known to move house and in all the upheaval forget to let me know.
For more details please see More Information below

“Absolutely beautiful dresses.
Very well made, gorgeous fabric and good quality.
I have searched for ages for dresses’. .
and they have either not been suitable or been very expensive.
These dresses look a lot more expensive than the price.
Would 100% recommend to anyone . .
especially as they can be customised to suit your wedding theme”
