Cucculelli Shaheen works with clients to develop one-of-a-kind pieces and special commissions for weddings, red carpet, and other special events, in addition to the offerings in our current and existing collections.
Within our current collection and archive, any of our embroideries may be moved from one silhouette to another, and any style may be done in all-over white or all-over black.
For more complicated commission pieces involving new motifs, colors, or silhouette updates, we recommend making an appointment to view the current collection and embroidery options, and discuss the commission in-person.
Please see our Press section for recent private client commissions: www.cu-sh.com/press/
Scanning and Measurements:
Each gown is custom made-to-measure using our unique 3D body scanning technology. This is different from most custom orders, which may only be ordered to a specific set size and then altered down with costly and time-intensive alterations, which may also damage delicate embroidery. We rework each embroidery layout to the client’s graded size to ensure silhouette and placement are complementary and suited to the client’s shape. We are also able to work with remote clients internationally or outside of the immediate New York area, using our specialized measurement and grading technology.
Dependent on the silhouette and style selected, approximately ten (10) weeks from the date of the scan or measurements received. However, we are able to work within deadlines as short as five (5) weeks, with an additional rush surcharge.
Pricing for commission projects is based on the embroidery selected, as well as any silhouette updates (such as neckline adjustments, adding or removing sleeves, adding trains or capelets, etc).
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on surcharges for pieces including: moving an existing embroidery to an existing silhouette, new motifs, colors, or silhouette updates.
Custom commissions start at $9,000.00.
We require 50% deposit upon receipt of the order, and the remaining 50% to be paid prior to shipment or pick-up.
We take commission appointments at our studio in Nolita, NYC on Wednesdays and Fridays, and on the weekends on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to make an appointment, please send a message to email@example.com to arrange a time. You may also arrange to do the body scan at this time if you are an out-of-town client.
Please contact us if you would like to host a trunk show in your home city. Trunk shows include our current and past collections, as well as 3D scanning for guests.
