It is in the Potager du Dauphin workshop, in Meudon, that we prepare our collections and our made-to-measure clothes: Drawings, material research, patronage, development, prototypes, small series and made-to-measure are made by our small friendly and passionate team, which exercises its profession with legitimate pride.
We work with silks, muslins, viscose and poplins: blurring is our expertise. We exploit this expertise on all types of clothing by combining silk linings and haute couture details.
We are Artisan Creators: Our experience has been shaped over time, gradually adopting the gestures of our peers, transmitters of know-how.
We capture our knowledge together, observing within the workshop or during our meetings and collaborations, transmitting to the teams by demonstrating: the attentive gaze, the hand, the touch, the precise gesture, repeated so many times, are our most valuable tools.
Materials are at the heart of our creations, they allow us to make beautiful, durable clothes for you, which wear a patina without being damaged.
We select them from the best weavers in Italy and buy the exceptional rolls from fashion houses.
"Behind each material, each print hides a creative, coloristic and technical research that gives the fabric an exceptional character, an incredible drape and incomparable resistance to time". Anahide
To preserve this material, we optimize the cut, and keep the scraps for new limited series or as part of our project “The HEART Of FASHION”.
“I draw my inspiration from materials, architecture, my travels, my encounters, my clients” Anahide
Material, shapes and textures are an inexhaustible source of creation. Associated with the know-how of my weavers, pleaters, embroiderers: Then begins a long process of associations of shapes, colors guided by a strong theme of inspiration.
“Making the garment reversible: an exercise that fascinates me, pushing the finishes to the extreme and imperceptible, perfect seams.
Modularity is a game we imagine the garment through time, passing the seasons evolving over time, an inexhaustible game of superposition, a multiplicity of color shapes associating over time. Anahide

Steps of a tailor-made garment
Do you want to call on a professional tailor to create a dress in your size for the first time? Creating a garment inevitably goes through several key stages to make the sketches, develop the model, carry out the alterations, then make the garment in the chosen material.
First Meeting: From idea to dress
You meet the designer for an initial discussion on your needs so that the designer understands the context in which you are having your outfit made, determine your clothing tastes, your favorite colors. She will also take into account your body shape and complexion to advise you on the choice of model to make. You can also come up with photos or magazine pages to illustrate the ideas you have. During this appointment, a seamstress takes your measurements which will be used to create the model in your size. The designer will offer you sketches of models to choose from.
As soon as the choice of model is validated, the next step is launched.
Second meeting: Creation and fitting of the cotton canvas
As soon as the creation project is validated, the sewing workshop pattern maker makes the first pattern. A first canvas is assembled. The canvas is the model that corresponds to the creation made in a basic cotton fabric: this first step allows you to validate the proportions, lengths, ease and visualize the shape of the garment. During the first fitting, the basic model is validated and alterations are made. At this stage, there is still time to propose modifications. Or to evolve the model. Major modifications or a change of model may result in additional costs, if they require completely redoing the pattern, for example. A second fitting of the fabric corrected by the alterations made allows the final model to be validated and the decision to launch the piece in its final fabric.
Third appointment: Try-on of the model and final touch-ups
Trying on clothes is a special moment. You discover your model in its final fabric. This first fitting of the garment allows you to check the correct proportions, identify any small alterations necessary if necessary and validate the finishes. IF major changes are proposed, a second appointment may be offered, but in most cases, this appointment is a formality before the implementation of the finishes. You're almost there! After this meeting, the workshop's team of tailors gets to work creating the hems and pretty finishes. Depending on the types of finishes, this step can take time because the tailors carry out the delicate finishes by hand for a quality result.
