Do you provide a fit model?

We could connect you with local model agencies and offer you a list of models depending on your specifications.

e provide full fabric shopping services and provide samples from audited suppliers, but it does come at an additional cost and can only be handled after the design consultation meeting has been concluded. All the materials requested can be sampled first, and we can ship them directly to you.
