Dubai, United Arab Emirates (Dubai Intl - DXB) (PRWEB) January 22, 2015
January 1st marked the opening of the region’s only online fashion fabric and dressmaking store, allowing fashion-conscious and time-poor ladies the opportunity to sew, replicate or design their own custom clothing. With tried and tested female dressmakers, http://www.fabricandmore.net is able to sew any item of clothing from over 300 fashion fabrics sourced globally.
“By importing the latest fashion fabrics, which replicate what is available in the ready-to-wear retail stores, women in the GCC can now replace or design their favourite items of clothing in a perfect fit,” says founder Simone Hasker. “Home-sewers of course have the luxury of purchasing our fabric and patterns and sewing it themselves.”
If the idea of trying on clothing is a little depressing, or you are looking for something just like you have seen elsewhere, fabricandmore.net is the perfect solution. Traditional tailors may offer a similar service, but this requires searching for a suitable fabric, knowing which tailor to trust and having lots of spare time to walk around the souqs.
“After searching high and low in the heat for a fabric similar to my friend’s dress to copy, I was completely frustrated. I was amazed at the lack of quality fabrics that married up with current trends,” says Simone. “And so a year later, the site is now live with customers able to purchase fabrics, patterns, sewing classes and dressmaking services if they desire.”
The website lists all fabrics by the meter in most Arab currencies and ships within the UAE for only AED20. Payment is accepted using PayPal and bank transfer, and the site will soon add in-person payments using UAE exchange.
“This is ideal for customers in other Emirates or surrounding countries. They can order the fabric and take it along to their own tailor. For customers unsure about paying online, PayPal and UAE exchange offer a safe solution.”
If you have been looking for a new hobby in 2015, fabricandmore.net is, at its simplest, a superb choice for finding fabrics from the convenience of home and having it delivered to your door the next day. This might explain why the store’s Facebook page attracted over 6,000 likes before it even opened.
