Designer Alicia Mugetti began her career making costumes for opera productions; at her standalone boutique on the Upper East Side, she translates her sweeping visions of chiffon-laden grandeur into eveningwear and bridal gowns. While Mugetti changes the fabrics she uses to suit current trends, her small selection always includes several silk and rayon gowns, and excludes anything short, modern, or minimalist. Her dramatically lit shop showcases floor-length, voluminous dresses in series of seasonal colors, some featuring hand-painted accents. Inspired, in part, by the four elements—earth, water, fire, and air—her collection is usually arranged by color, with blazing burnt orange evening gowns in one corner and pale blue empire-waist bridesmaid dresses in another. The store’s selection is spare, but only because most Mugetti pieces (including her bridal collection) are made to order. Customers choose their fabric, design, and silhouette, then wait two to eight weeks for their very own couture gown. Mugetti still works in the theatre and opera communities, and stars like Barbra Streisand and Emma Thompson have been known to wear her elegant creations both on and off the stage.
