Can I order a custom made garment based on Studio REN designs?

You can choose each design from the Studio REN collection and we will try to remake it as similar to the original design as in our catalog (with the needed accommodations to fit your dream dress and fit).
Unfortunately, sometimes it is impossible to recreate the dress exactly as in the catalog since not all fabrics used in previous collections are on the market constantly, therefor we need to change certain fabrics to the most similar fabrics available (subject to availability) or to the fabric you will love the most.
