I specialize in making high-quality custom garments that not only flatter and beautify the wearer, but makes them feel comfortable and confident! I believe that with fine fabrics and a perfectly executed customized pattern, everyone should feel as comfy as if they were wearing pyjamas yet look as if they just walked off the red carpet.
I started my career in my motherland, Romania, when I was 4 years old making clothes for my most loyal customers; my dolls. From toddler to just before my 7th birthday, I grew up with my grandma and because she was a tailor, I was very inspired by watching her create beautiful form-fitting garments out of shapeless pieces of fabric. In 2005, I graduated from Blanche Macdonald Center with a diploma in Fashion Design and since then, I worked on many different projects from fashion shows to movies/tv shows, many types of garments from bikinis to men's leather jackets, and got to learn from and work with some amazingly talented master tailors that have over half a century of experience behind them.
I love working one on one with each client, learning about their personality and finding out what makes them feel beautiful and create garments that reflect that. It brings me so much joy to watch my clients' faces light up at their final fittings and walk away happy and confident!
Although most of my work consists of making exquisite custom gowns, I can make just about anything you can think of and also do alterations for lady's and men's garments that require a little more attention than most, such as designer clothing.
