COUTURE


THE ART OF COUTURE

JANTAMINIAU Couture explores the nature of the woman and figures her as a blank canvas. Building silhouettes, volumes and shapes that extend beyond the limits of creativity, Jan paints freely around women’s silhouette. This craft process celebrates his artisanal sense founded on perfection and care of every detail to achieve the dream.

Each dress relates a story in which the act of dressing the woman’s body allows her to project the image of herself she desires and wants to achieve. JANTAMINIAU creations are proof of a meticulous experimentation, pattern making and care of the smallest detail.

"Every pattern, every colour and detail in the design has a story behind."

CRAFTED WITH LOVE

The beauty of JANTAMINIAU Couture is gradually revealed when one gets closer. Each detail and technique defines the intention that completes the genuine spirit of the piece. This is the soulful narrative about Jan's imagination running high. Beauty is reflected through exquisite finishings and carefully handcrafted details.

Embroidery represents the most important part of Jan's creative process. Handwork has the same beauty for him as nature does - as it is different each time. Like every leave, flower and petal and even snowflake is unique.

Jan's genuine sense of craftsmanship is reflected in different shapes, motifs and designs. The embroidery archive is one of the most important parts of his creative process. This makes the atelier like a Laboratorium: a space in which Jan's creativity finds full freedom. It gives true sense to each gown, with every hem and stitch.

THE PROCESS
COUTURE

Throughout the journey of creating a one of a kind gown, you will be our muse and our inspiration. Like this, we can build the perfect gown that is a reflection of you and your personality, seen through the eyes of Jan Taminiau. We start with a creative consultation to understand your needs, preferences and desires. With that we create a sketch which reflects you. Followed with a toile as the first draft, cut from cotton, to see and visualize the shape and the first parts of the artwork. This will help us to make the perfect fit for your body so the dress moves easily with you.

The creation of couture takes 3 - 6 months, with 4 to 6 fitting moments.

CUSTOM-MADE
With the JANTAMINIAU Custom Made Gown-Collection, Jan added a new line to his couture portfolio. This collection offers iconic JANTAMINIAU silhouettes, born from its Haute Couture heritage and translated into timeless pieces with shapes and forms that hug the female body. These creations are embellished with embroidered details, draped and pleated fabrics, fine laces and contrasting textures. The custom made collection includes unique styles and silhouettes that have been learnt from the clients' needs, perceptions, shapes and sizes. It offers some of Jan's classic and radiantly feminine silhouettes, to customize into your personal wishes of color, length and veils.

The custom made creation takes 1 - 3 months, with 1 fitting moment.
