My business mantras

Great and friendly customer service! Service with a smile and respect for the customer is key.

Accountabilty is equally as important!! Do it till you get it right and do it with pride.

My designs have gone from the church house to the White House for President Clinton’s inauguration, so I figure you are doing pretty good when you make it to the White House, lol.

Im a creative at heart and a clothes designer by trade(though I wear many hats, lol), so the custom/creative aspect of my work just gets my juices going!

Working on set for commercial/editorial gigs as well as fashion shows are incredibly inspiring for me. I’m a freelance artist as well so I look for beauty and opportunities to create in my different things.

    Such a great experience. My bridesmaids dress was finished quickly and beautifully. We are already return customers for my daughter’s flower girl dress. A+ service!

    Frequently asked questions

    I typically set an appointment to meet face to face and detail the customers desires and expectations.

    From there,if the project moves forward, my expectations, prices, etc are discussed and hopefully a very satisfied customer is the end result!🙂

    I'm mostly self taught, but a desire to learn more leads me to apprenticeships with a few local designers.  One if which has a contact with the Olympic Games.  I also trained under two Master Tailors in alteration shops as well as a class with Rory Duffy from Seville Row.

    It has always been a desire to be a clothed designer and own my own art gallery as a child, the women in my family were regal and larger than life!  Truly inspiring

    I work with just about any type of customer, meaning body types for men women and children.

    There isn't any one particular event. There are several as I'm fond of doing charity events.

    Learn the language, know if you need a "hem" or "taper" which is shorting the length or slimming the garment.

     Understanding certain terms helps to ensure your desire service.

    Access what their needs are as accurately as possible, and write things down if there are several concerns as not to forget anything.

     Always ask turnaround times, and don't be afraid to ask for inexpensive alternative solutions.
