Every time I make a wedding dress or suit, I pray this is a match made in heaven and it will last "until death do us part." I think it is a blessing to meet someone you feel strong about sharing the rest of your life with. I also think it takes close to a miracle to stay together in virtue of all the things that can go wrong: people grow apart, people change, people lose interest. That being said, I boast that our track record has been stellar. From the many outfits I have designed for the past 20 plus years, all the clients that stay in contact with us are still together and are still in love. I think it has to do with our genuine approach and the commitments and values of the real people who sign up for our services.
Whether you want a dress or a suit we apply the same principle: understated elegance, attention to details and the highest level of craftsmanship. We are here to help you make that decision.
After your first visit, you will be familiar with our design approach which begins with a dialogue about style and silhouettes. You will have seen our current styles and perused our selection of swatches. Then we will schedule a more formal meeting (this should be at least 3 months before your wedding date). To start, you and I will talk about the ceremony, the setting, season, and climate. We will choose the shape of your gown or suit, take your measurements, and discuss any special details. All fittings are conducted by Jussara herself and adjustments will be made to perfect the fit. It is during these sessions that we will select trimmings and consider any design tweaks.
Here are some details we love to apply on our clothes:
French Re-embroidered Lace with Scalloped Edges
Vintage Mother of Pearl buttons
Bias Cut Silk
Handkerchief Hem on Pleats
Silk Hand Tailored Suit
Painters Cloth Jacket with Hand Stitching
Silk Bow with Tail Train

It takes a minimum of 3 months for a wedding dress to be made as long as you can promptly come for fittings. If you live away from NY and its boroughs, more time will be required depending on your availability.
Once you are familiar with our design process and decide to place a custom order, you will be scheduled to meet with Jussara to take your measurements, discuss fabric options and details. She also personally conducts all the fittings there after.
No. You can bring pictures to use as reference but our service is to design and make the clothes that best suit your personality and body type.
