BESPOKE TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS

 

CLASSIC SUITS

FOR all genders

During her training, Susana discovered that the “male” bespoke suit offers quality fabric and features that enhance men’s bodies. Now, Susana offers this same quality and craftsmanship to women and people who are transitioning or non-binary. The cut of your suit can either “drape over” or “trace” your silhouette—it’s up to you!

SHIRTS & SHIRTDRESSES

TO MATCH YOUR SUIT (OR NOT)

Susana offers classic cuts and personal alternatives for men's shirts, but she has also re-designed the classic patterns for women, and for people who are transitioning or non-binary. Each body requires particular kinds of movements, and Susana’s patterning will provide the ideal fit for your body. Gaping buttons will be a thing of the past! 

 

SUITS THAT PERFORM

on THE STAGE

Original requests that may baffle some tailors are a welcome challenge for Susana. Combining her nimble skills with her deep knowledge of theatre and opera principles, Susana produces tailored originals that provide slimming silhouettes, but with space for the movements required by each artist.

 
 

THERE IS NOTHING SEXIER THAN A WELL-FIT GARMENT

FINE MATERIALS

Made with the finest sustainable materials, these suits last a lifetime. Wool is milled with natural spring water to eliminate chemical run-off. And fabric is spun with the longest filaments for increased strength and no pilling.  

CUTTING & WORKMANSHIP

Susana has experience with making patterns for all sorts of needs, including those of circus acrobats, dancers, opera singers, and actors. From initial measurements to finishing touches, your garment will be made by Susana's accomplished hands.  

CUSTOM FITTING

Susana's training with a seasoned Neapolitan tailor, in addition to her knowledge of classical North American pattern-making, has given her multiple perspectives to draw on in order to best fit your body.

HANDWORK

Bespoke garments carry the spirit of the artisan. Hands hold the curves of the waistband and the collar. Fingers gather and shape the fabric as the needle manoeuvres between fibres. Spit adds grip.

Thanks again for the pants. They feel like pyjamas in the best possible way.

I have a 4-piece suit, plus another vest and skirt that were skillfully made by Susana. Her craftsmanship and attention to detail are impeccable. She has also been a great resource of information regarding Antebellum Era clothing for a period drama in development. So inspired by her work!

I love how the plaid material is a sophisticated balance to the clean feminine lines of this shirt dress. It’s casual but has attitude - which I like. Also, the phenomenal craftsmanship behind this dress means I’ll have it for decades.
