What is WD Couture?
Couture-from the French, meaning the design and production of fashionable high-quality custom made clothing. Unlike custom, or made -to-order, couture window treatments answer to a set of higher standards. A couture window treatment says correct use of design elements and their principles; originality in design; flawless fit; construction that is a step beyond the standard and of course, the finishing touches- it’s all in the details. Design elements, fabric manipulations, and an understanding of engineering all come together to produce a truly unique treatment.
Window Dressings | Couture offers turnkey to- the- trade design services for your window covering projects- turning them from ordinary to extraordinary. Now that’s Couture!
The window covering niche is the most technical niche in the design industry; yet it offers the most profit potential. When it comes to window treatments, you know what you like when you see it. ( Pouf valances = bad; Box pleated valances= good. ), but sometimes you can have trouble articulating the technical aspects of the window coverings design process. I’m here to help. I can suggest the appropriate and right pieces to help you pull together your windows from head to toe; keep track of all the details and install them professionally. Doing unique window coverings is what I do.
