Nilah — Seamstress, Designer, Tailor

Hello! Ever since I was very young, I have always had a love for fashion. My passion and skills have been nurtured along the way by many. I have had the honor to have been inspired and mentored by some of the finest tailors throughout my career including the private tailors to five-star General Bradley and Walter Annenberg. I am a present member and the past president of the Custom Tailors and Designers Association of Philadelphia as well as the first sole proprietor female to join in its 100 year history. It is with that experience and that of my wonderful staff that we bring to our clients a commitment of excellence. As we approach our 25th year in business, we look to continue making your dreams and visions for your special occasion come true.

In the Fall of 2011, we launched our wholesale veil collection at Couture New York Bridal Fashion Week. Since then, industry expert Randy Fenoli uses our veils for his show “Randy to the Rescue.”
