Although our store opened in 2007, our work goes back for over 25 years plus a family legacy of excellent tailoring. Born in Argentina, Maria Luz was acquainted with the needle since a very early age. Daughter of a lifetime tailor and seamstress, she quickly learned the basics of sewing techiques and later developed her very own.
Early in her career, she worked as a seamstress, mastering the necessary skills for proper alterations. However, as she matured in her career, other aspects of her talent started to show through, most specially hand-work and details. This became more apparent in her work with gowns, an area in which she now specializes and to which she dedicates most of her time.
Feedback from brides has helped her reassure her career and now strengthens her dedication and passion for wedding gowns. She takes pride in her attention to detail, her will to work with the client, and the quality of craftsmanship.
