Aspiring Couture is a lovely organization that spotlights up-and-coming designers, one of which is Selah D’Or. Started by Boston designer David Chum, Selah D’Or has beautiful pieces inspired by the female form that are timeless and guaranteed to turn heads. Says Selah D’Or’s bio, “It’s a subdued form of assertion.”
David Chum was recently interviewed by Aspiring Couture on the topic of quality.
If you look at the pieces, the tailoring is impeccable. It’s all hand sewn by local seamstresses and mostly myself. It’s something that you don’t see a lot in woman’s wear when you go to stores like H&M or Forever 21 or Express. Those places tend to ship stuff out to manufacturers. The turn around time is so fast because those factories cut a lot of corners and use really cheap inexpensive labor and materials. So in turn, the retail prices for the public are LOW, but the quality is poor. This is why clothes from these places fall apart so quickly….or fit so poorly.
As you can see, Selah D’Or certainly delivers classic, timeless pieces with a contemporary twist. David Shum sure knows how to make a woman look fabulous.
Could you see yourself in one of Selah D’Or’s pieces? I certainly can…
