Custom Designs

each design is a unique work of art

At Head To Toe Designs we work with you to create a costume that brings out nothing less than confidence. Our designers are extremely knowledgeable about the types of cut, height, embellishments, materials and colors that best accommodate your style of dance.

Start by booking an appointment. When you meet with the designer, bring your ideas, photos, sketch, or music. If you are not sure what you're looking for and are open to ideas even better! Being creative with our clients is always exciting because the final product will be truly unique.

Embroidery

Personalize it!

Embroidery is beautiful. We love to help clients personalize their items or to create works of art. We can add stock designs, text or your logo to anything that can be hooped. We have made many pillows and quilts for raffle fundraisers. Some have raised nearly $1000 for the non-profit.

Everything else

restyling / embellishment / bling / alterations

Sometimes it’s not necessary to start from scratch to create a performance outfit. A good alteration can take a good looking dress and make it look stunning on an individual. Sometimes a little restyling helps modernize the dress. Other times adding some embellishment and Swarvoski elements does the trick. With over15 yrs of experience our designer can recommend the best option for you taking into consideration your budget and timeline.

Restyling

The look of the Irish dance dress is updated just by making a new skirt. Because of the way it was made some the original embroidery could be reused saving money. Our designers love coming up with creative ways to modernize costumes or re-purpose them.

Embellishment and Bling

Swarvoski elements, trims and appliques can take a simple dress and turn it into a work of art. Whether the garment is brand new or an off the rack one, our designers use these elements to make each costume unique.
