Emiliacouture is a doll fashion label with original designs by Emilia Nieminen. Her designs are known for their sculptured looks and tailoring that licks the curves like a second skin. Emilia seldom uses any patterns but prefers to hand stitch and wet sculpt the garments on the doll for the perfect fit.
You can commission fashions, shoes, props and accessories for Inamorata or other dolls. To order separate fashions, shoes or accessories, please use the ORDER FORM 2. Also check out what it in the SHOP right now.
PAYMENTS & WAITING LIST
There is a 50% non-refundable deposit (of the estimated budget) by Paypal to get to the waiting list. The remainder of the commission fee and shipping is paid after the project is done and you have seen the photos. After paying the deposit you get to the waiting list that is usually around 6 months. Emilia will be in touch when your appointment approaches.
EMILIA GUARANTEES THAT ALL HER OOAK CREATIONS WILL BE UNIQUE ARTWORKS AND SHALL NOT BE DUPLICATED BY HER.
Design and tailoring fees for garments depend on the labour and materials involved. Haute Couture gowns start at 600usd and lingerie sets, such as underwire bra and panties, are around 300usd per set. Corsets, suits and other more labour intensive projects should be negotiated individually. Easiest way is to set a budget and theme as boundaries.
Please don’t ask Emilia to do fashion sketches as it is not part of her creative process and she finds them limiting. She likes to submerge herself in the process and let the materials guide her hand organically.
HAUTE COUTURE PORTFOLIO
- Shoes start at 100usd with existing heel sculpts. There are 5 heels sculpts.
- Starting price is 300usd if you want a completely new heel prototypes hand sculpted for your project. Note that this new heel type might become part of the regular selection, but your complete shoes will be guaranteed to maintain as OOAK.
- If commissioning shoes for other dolls please contact Emilia first to make sure she has a fitting doll at hand. Inamorata can share shoes with many 16″ resin dolls, but for example Popovy has much larger feet so I have made different sculpts for the Popovy Ballet feet such as Tengu Geta.
PROPS AND ACCESSORIES
Emilia has a wide range of experience in making props and accessories: jewellery, hats, headbands, harnesses, gloves, purses, belts, canes, custom weapons, microphones, fans, and even furniture. Don’t hesitate to ask. The more unusual the request the more fun it is!
