I went to see Franco recently about a dress that I needed to have completely remade. It was my mother's dress from the 70's that I'm absolutely in love with. The only problem...the dress was 2 sizes too small and about 3 inches too short. Franco was able to deconstruct and redesign the dress so that it not only fits, but it is very flattering as well. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. (And my Mom loved it too!)
While in his studio I also saw custom suites in progress for other clients. Those are some lucky people! They looked incredibly luxurious.
I agree with a previous poster. Give Franco a call and set up an appointment. He was very accommodating, and I liked that I was able to see him after work.
Franco is a master!
I have had multiple garments altered to fit me better - from adding snaps to dresses to wrangle bra straps to fitting dresses to completely changing a blazer. I am thrilled with the work. Franco was trained in Italy - where fashion is art. This man knows clothes and how to make people look better in them.
Phone first... he's a one-man shop (which also means you know no one else is working on your clothes).
Amazing tailor, really solid work. Franco is the best tailor in new york. He custom made a suit for my wedding. the price was right and the details on the suit were amazing. He has a classic italian cut with true bespoke traditional tailoring. He will not only measure you, but he'll cut the patterns himself, and build and sew the suit with his own two hands on site. Amazing work.
