A dress the first of its kind…
The dress to mark the change of dresses forever…
We have revolutionized the Little Black Dress into the Careaux Black Dress, a timeless dress created with our Careaux ‘magic’ to make your dress as unique as you. The ‘Carrie’ dress is the first dress in the ‘Always & Forever’ collection and this will become the next generation of the Little Black Dress.
With a zip around the waist, the dress can be unzipped and split into a top and skirt. This allows you to choose your top size and your bottom size separately to fit your individual size whether you are a different or the same size top to bottom and to interchange pieces whenever and however you wish.
All you have to do is enter your top size and bottom size, whether that’s a 10, 12, etc. and then enter your waist measurement in inches. Whether you want to buy one dress, two tops and one skirt, two skirts and one top or two tops and two skirts to give you the four dress combinations- the choice is yours.
Create your perfect dress for life with Careaux so you never have to worry or waste time finding that perfect outfit again. Your unique Careaux creation will be your go-to dress, so you can spend your time sparkling whilst making your dreams come true.
Between Careaux’s fabric and thread we’ve captured the feeling when you find your perfect outfit to wear, the trusted feeling of putting on your forever favourite, the feeling you can achieve the impossible.
Be enchanted by the Careaux Black Dress and choose from the time-defying sleeveless and the three-quarter length sleeved tops along with the high-waisted pencil and skater skirts, all adapting to your every need.
Made from a luxurious UK sourced heavyweight jersey and a luxury stretch lining for added comfort to fit your shape and your dreams.
The subtle scoop neckline and a slight v-back, a nod to our signature diamond. Not to mention our trademark button which is hand-stitched onto each dress, a mark of what Careaux stands for, a mark of the belief you can make your dreams come true.
With our Careaux ‘magic’ of a zip around the waist, as well as two invisible side zips, interchanging your Careaux pieces is made simpler than saying zip, dress, dream. With your Careaux Black Dress you will be feeling like you can achieve anything - any time, any place.
Your shape, Your Style, Your Careaux.
The Sizing Secret is our Careaux Combination.
We don’t believe in putting you into one size bracket. Instead we acknowledge and believe in your unique combination.
For your Careaux Combination follow these steps:
Step 1: Enter your top size. For example, size 10.
Step 2: Measure your waist in inches. For example, 29 inches.
Step 3: Enter your bottom size. For example, size 12.
For the top and skirt size, we wanted to keep this simple and use the sizing that we all know - size 10, size 12, size 14 etc. (Please take a look at our size guide below for guidance and please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or for any advice, it would be lovely to hear from you.)
Since we know that we don’t always have time to properly measure ourselves- the only measurement that we need is your waist measurement (in inches).
To measure your waist: All you need to do is to find the top of your hip bone and the base of your rib cage - your waist is in the middle of these points (just above your belly button). It is the narrowest part of your torso. Wrap a tape measure round your waist and take the reading in inches.
A few notes for your perfect combination:
For the pencil skirt, we recommend choosing the size down from your hip measurement if a more fitted style is required (for example if your hips measure 40 inches, we would recommend a size 10 in this instance).
When entering your top and skirt size, please take care to make sure that you enter an even number rather than an odd number as we will not be able to process your order if it is not a recognised size.
From start to finish, your Careaux piece is handmade in Manchester.
It starts with our pattern cutter making your dress based on your unique Careaux Combination to fit your shape and to fit your dreams.
It is then delivered to our seamstress who cuts the material and pieces it together with extra care and attention and then carefully hand sews our signature buttons onto the back of your dress.
We then collect your finished Careaux piece, carefully wrap and place in your Dreamory box with our signature hanger ready to be delivered to you.
