What do you call...

What do you call a person that makes fancy high end clothes? So far I have come up with Taylor, Seamstress and Clothier... is there something else/better?

I'd probably prefer a tailor to a Taylor - unless Taylor was a tailor.

For high end stuff you probably need to specify whether it's for women or men. For example dressmaker or couturier is for women, whereas a tailor is usually for men.

Yea was hoping for something cooler sounding. "The Tailor Consortium" I guess works but lacks that other worldly cool factor.

Haute Couture? Although it refers mainly to dressmaking, I think. Tailor is masculine, as gmw said.

How about "The Tailor Made Consortium"?

If you are writing books, a good reference to have on hand would be a guide to synonyms, antonyms. There are also websites such as Merriam Webster that will give you information. The internet is a limitless source....free for the searching most of the time...

I'd still got with designer, or tailor. Modiste for the high-end expensive shops that cater exclusively to women and custom design everything.

Fashion designer, I'd say. Another good word, related but not the same, is fashionista, but that may not help you.

Interesting choice?

Quote:
Fashionista or fashionistas may refer to:
  • Fashionista (TV series), an Australian TV series
  • Fashionistas, an American pornographic film
  • The Fashionistas, minor villains in the Kim Possible series
  • Fashion victim, an avid follower of fashion
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fashionista

Not sure how that fits

Interesting. I thought Fashionista was more a description of people who kept up with high fashion. The references you give here tell a different tale.

Another word for a high-end tailor would be "Bespoke", meaning made-to-measure, but don't think that would work in what you are looking for.

Yeah, all these words sound to mundane. I think will have to make a word up. Being that it will be used as a title, I can get away with that, so long as I explain it at first use. Thanks for the help though!
