After searching through every department storeÂ for an elegant, chic, yet modest dress, and dreadfully wasting many hours on unsuccessful shopping trips, I decided to try out House of Couture after reading all the positive reviews on yelp. I am SO happy I made that decision, and my only regret is not having discovered this place sooner.
I showed Sharifa an Instagram photo of the dress I wished for and described the modifications I wanted. She magically pulled out the exact same fabric that was on the dress from under her table, and she did it so quickly that I can't say I wasn't impressed. From then on, I trusted that she had the skills and expertise to create what I was asking for. She asked me a few questions (cloth color & neckline style), took my measurements, and had me come back in several weeks for a fitting.
Sharifa will make exactly what you want, but to be fair, you need to be very detailed and exact in telling her how you want your dress made. When I can back for my first fitting, the dress was just as I imagined (soooo beautiful!), but I did request for a certain change to be made to the boddess, which she accommodated for a fee but with a quick turnaround (another few weeks). I also requested fit a tighter fit and she also accommodated that with a perfect result. I definitely plan on coming back.
