I was contacted by Fox in a Glove telling me all about their all new online made to measure service. The label offers stylish, modern made to measure womenswear at high street prices.
As someone who encounters multiple problems finding clothes that fit, in particular dresses, I can really see the benefit in this. The whole process is simple, all you have to do is choose the item of clothing you want from the website which will then be made to your measurements. After providing Fox in a Glove with all the info they need you have a wait of no more than three weeks for your beautifully wrapped garment to arrive. I think that’s pretty quick for a made to measure piece!
Taking a closer look at their website I was pleased to learn that the clothes are made by seamstresses who work out of ethical and progressive workspaces in Europe and these seamstresses are also fairly paid. When purchasing an item I like to know that the people who produced it have not been exploited and I think as a society we are becoming more aware of this in general. I think that we should all be supporting brands that promote an ethical working environment.
My favourite piece on the website has to be the dress on the right (which you can find here) because I just love the print, the style is flattering for most body shapes and it would look great dressed up or down. New items are regularly added so make sure that you keep checking back. Fox in a Glove also offer a styling service and can help you to find the pieces that will suit you best!
