But only for herself.
Couture queen Daphne Guinness has confirmed she does in fact create some of her clothes, the most recent being the silver dress she wore at this year's British Fashion Awards.
She told Grazia:
"I often if not always customise my pieces, and I have several different people working on my sketches. It just depends where on the planet I happen to be. I can work a sewing machine but I am not fast so that I leave to others. I started doing this from the age of 5 as since I am tiny nothing fit.
I am making costumes for a film I am in the middle of shooting and I like to wear them in so I am comfortable. Anyway, a long and boring story, but I have probably made about 100 pieces. I have no production and they are figments of my imagination made real. Hope this helps."
So that's how she does it.
Just one of the many benefits of being an heiress.

For fashionistas who want to be individuals, there's a couple of sites that are letting you get creative without breaking the bank.
If accessories are your thing, GemKitty.com gives shoppers the chance to design you own jewelry. The custom baubles start at $38 for earrings and $67 for necklaces.
And if you're looking to give that special man in your life a new wardrobe, BlankLabel.com offers custom dress shirts where you can customize everything from the style of cuffs to what the label will say.
The extra bells and whistles cost extra (of course), but most start at $45.
But if adding your own personal touches to your clothes aren't your thing, you can always customize your own chocolate.
See, there's a little something for everybody!
