MADE-TO-ORDER

ABOUT ORDER

Before making costumes, it is important to talk to the customers about their costumes. By doing so, I can find the customer’s positive traits that they themselves don’t realize. Once I find their good points, I can create the best costume to suit the customer very well.

OUR BRAND

The Meaning Of
 Our Brand Name

“ Jardin des Costumes “ is French, means a garden full of stage costumes. When I thought about the name, I thought of a lot of colorful costumes that were in a beautiful garden.

About The Logo

The logo is a cornflower. Cornflowers bloom early summer to the end of summer. They have long stems and at the top, they have their flowers. The colors are usually blue, pink, and white. Especially, blue is an iconic color, and the name “ Cornflower blue “ is officially used. If these flowers are dried, they keep their original colors vividly. I think it is their strong trait. In addition, I think the shape of a tutu looks like the shape of a cornflower. Therefore, I have decided to use the cornflower as my brand’s logo.
