Fashion designer opens boutique specializing in custom-made apparel and alterations

PHENOM is the newest boutique in Anthem where customers can walk in with an idea for a custom-designed special occasion dress or apparel piece, and work with a local fashion designer to bring their vision to life.

“Dressmaking is a dying art and I really just want to give a resurgence back to it,” local entrepreneur, 22-year-old Abigail Davis, told Valley Vibe.

From simple hems to producing one-of-a-kind customwear creations, Abigail told Valley Vibe there’s no job too big or small. “Everyone I’ve met has cried in a dressing room at some point,” she said, adding “My goal is to give everyone a positive fashion experience that they don’t walk away from.”

“There’s no one that can’t walk through PHENOM, whether they’ve

Abigail designed and created custom gowns (pictured right) for her senior thesis at ASU last spring which are on display in PHENOM.

been inspired by things they’ve seen in the fashion world or something they want to design themselves… I want people to be inspired to embrace their own creativity,” she said.

Abigail Davis is the talent behind PHENOM which opened in August in the Ace Hardware Plaza in the space formerly occupied by the Blind Bear. Her work is centered around making couture all-inclusive and accessible to all, whether that be through stitching that perfect fit through the alterations process, or designing and hand making a custom creation tailored to each individual client’s needs and desires.

Abigail’s passion for creating fashion began at an early age. She learned to sew by hand at age 7, picking up the skill from her grandfather who handmade his own clothes. From there, she began performing alterations on her own clothes, and by her teen years, the former Boulder Creek High School student took on dressmaking—

designing and creating her own homecoming and prom dresses, as well as for her friends who were looking for unique custom couture.

Abigail earned her degree in fashion design in May from Arizona State University, creating a line of eight custom-designed gowns that were either entirely handmade or

feature handmade embellishments, as part of her senior thesis. Many of the gowns are currently on display in her boutique. The gowns feature a timeless and genderless look in colors of black and white. One of the gowns was entirely hand sewn using more than 500 yards of black tulle. These gowns will be featured

along with creations from other ASU alumni in a fall runway event this month, benefiting the Arizona Humane Society, and Abigail’s new fall/winter line will make its debut in the boutique.

The creative design process for her custom couture starts with a

consultation to determine the end goal. Once the details are pinned down, Abigail begins the sketching process—hand sketching the client’s vision on paper, fine tuning with the client as needed to reach the end result.

With powerlifting as her hobby, many of her clients come from that industry because their bodies don’t fit in the mainstream clothes of the fashion industry. Her advice: “Buy clothes that are bigger than the widest part of your body.” From there, your custom garment begins taking shape. “Alterations really aren’t just hems… it’s more like let’s figure out what’s going to work for you and make it happen,” she said.

As for fabrics, Abigail prefers to use sustainably conscious materials and shop local when she can, but sometimes her work requires a trip to the garment district in Los Angeles. She works with knits and wovens, silks, satins and leathers.

Regarding turnaround time, Abigail prides herself on efficiency. Alterations can be turned around really quickly, and some of her gowns she’s made in a night. Of course, it all depends on the scope of the job and the materials and time needed to bring each vision to life.

Her mission is “to dress every body regardless of sexual

orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, race, ethnicity, age, religion, and disability.” “Everyone is phenomenal and deserves to be celebrated and accelerated to reach their ultimate potential,” she proudly states as part of her mission with PHENOM.

More than 500 yards of tulle was used to create this one-of-a-kind gown.

To help clients accessorize their formalwear, the boutique also sells hand-crafted fashion accessories made by local artists, and coming soon: Keep an eye out for cactus leather totes, bags and wallets. There’s also local artwork for sale and other products, which Abigail plans to expand over the next few months.

Prep for Your Visit

Gather your own garments and have them altered for a custom fit.

Bring in a picture of the formal wear or apparel you’d like to have designed and created.

Come with your ideas for design and fabrics to begin the creative process.

DATA RETRIEVED FROM THE MLS. THE INFORMATION IS DEEMED RELIABLE BUT MAY BE SKEWED AT TIME OF PRINT.

While home sale prices nationally are still higher than a year ago, National Association of Realtor’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said the softness in sales reflects the increase in mortgage rates.

“Inventory will remain tight in the coming months and even for the next couple of years,” Yun said. “Some homeowners are unwilling to trade up or trade down after locking in historically-low mortgage rates in recent years, increasing the need for more new-home construction to boost supply,” he added.

First responders that serve others make our communities safer, stronger and happier. Guardian Mortgage is proud to offer our eligible Heroes a lender credit of up to $1,500* to be used toward closing costs. It’s just one way we thank you for all of your sacrifices.
