“Kira designed and made me a custom gown for my wedding. It fit perfectly and the entire process was effortless and stress-free. Kira is beyond talented and the only person I would trust with my dress. Kira has more experience than the vast majority of seamstresses out there, especially when it comes to gowns and working with fine fabrics. Do it right - work with Kira. She will take better care of your dress than anyone else out there!” -Bride Shanua

“Working with Kira was honestly the best experience I could have asked for. I live in NYC, so had to squeeze in dress fittings while I was down visiting my sister in Charleston. Kira was super accommodating, and fit me in with what little availability I had. She had the best suggestions for where the dress should be altered and it turned out perfectly, I wouldn’t have changed a thing! Oh, and not to mention I got a text during the hurricane that was last Fall, to ensure me that my dress was safe and in good hands “ -Bride Kacie

“Kira has amazing talent and a kind heart! She created a new neckline and sewed in lace,and it looked like the dress was made that way. I am not a fan of traditional bustles, and Kira created a custom bustle design specifically for my dress and fabric, which made it flow rather than a harsh fold. It looked effortless. She also created a custom silk flower bouquet and hair piece from my mother wedding dress, lace, and veil. It was absolutely beautiful and made me cry. You can tell she puts lots of love and effort into her work. I would use her again in a heartbeat.”-Bride Stephanie
