Hey, if you want a negligible price tag and aren't very picky about quality (I'm assuming you won't wear this much) it would be interesting to try buying from these people: http://adongsilk.todoor.org/modules....=showcat&cid=6 It's cheaper than cheap.

I doubt a tailor could do the Lanvin jackets with ruching either or the Demeulemeester all white one with an extended, shirtlike material coming out like a sort of overlong dress shirt. The level of creativity displayed by some designers is simply not matched by bespoke tailors who are artisans rather than conceptual...
