About Us

Prêt-à-Portière, founded by Alice Orozco and guided by her vision and passion for textiles, has become Australia’s premier online destination for designer, ready-to-hang drapery and custom curtains. Cost-effective, yet high-end home furnishings are easily accessible here.

The Process

We source direct or produce our own range of fabrics, and by cutting out middlemen, we are able to offer a quality product at an affordable price, without multiple layers of markups.

First, you select the style, fabric, and details to create something uniquely yours.

We then help you refine your selections.  Our expertise allows us to provide you with as much or as little guidance as you need to measure your windows, and refine your selections to ensure your home will look beautiful and your drapes perfectly selected for your space. If you need extra support order a visualisation of your room.

It generally takes 4 – 6 weeks to handcraft your drapes with all the attention to detail however if you have a deadline, talk to us.

Once delivered we will continue to provide assistance during installation, or even referrals to professional installers.


These days, many homes have larger windows and more natural light—but in the night, a black rectangular square lacks appeal. Modern-style blinds might be functional and inexpensive, but their corporate feel leaves them lacking.

Curtains and drapes such as ours are fantastic for more personalised decoration, whether to cover up or decorate pre-existing blinds, or on their own as window decorations that enhance your privacy and control of light entering your home.


There’s a reason that blinds are so cheap: they’re made from hundreds, if not thousands of chemicals including PVA, PVC and BPA—and the health consequences of having these chemicals around us is not yet known, or beginning to be correlated, as with asthma and acrylic-backed fabrics. 

If you have a young family or, place great importance on your health, using natural fibres is advisable—not only is the material more attractive, there are no known health issues. 

At Pret-a-Portiere, we offer a range of linens and cottons. If blocking light is a primary consideration, our triple-weave lining is chemical-free (no coating) and provides powerful dimming. We also provide block out and translucent linings, depending on your needs. 
We categorically do not use acrylic-backed curtain fabrics, instead using a cotton/polyester mix and 100% non-acrylic room darkening lining.


We pride ourselves on our versatility and ability to give you what you need. Whether you’re looking for a modern design or the elegance of a classic look, we provide curtains and drapes that last longer than a seasonal trend—while our drapes can be changed easily as often or as little as you want.
