Ethereal Seafoam Wedding
By merisulcer on 2/19/2015
For years, I’d walk by Angelo's East Village boutique and there was always a jaw-dropping dress in the front window. I prayed for a day that I might have a reason to walk inside. As soon as I entered the shop, I knew I was in good hands. Angelo and his assistant were an absolute pleasure to work with! He was down to earth, efficient and incredibly thoughtful. I was given personalized attention and felt comfortable and at ease almost immediately. I showed him a couple of pictures and he knew exactly what would look most flattering on my body. He was helpful in listening to my preferences and selecting a few sample dresses for me to try. After a brief chat, he began sketching a dress for me. He works with high quality fabrics which I think is extremely important, so if you are looking for the best, this is the place to go. The couture designs are to die for, original and breathtaking. My dress was absolutely stunning. I felt so gorgeous on my wedding day and the compliments were endless. The entire night, I felt comfortable and I was able to dance the night away without feeling constricted. It was fun to have a glass of wine and chit chat about life with Angelo. I felt like I was meeting with an old friend to catch up. Not only did I wind up with an ethereal, jaw dropping dress that made me look my best, I made a new friend!! I would recommend this designer to a bride that doesn't want a standard wedding dress but something unique from an independent designer.

My dealing with Angelo was absolutely spectacular. Unlike other dress shops where all they cared about was how much I was will to fork over, Angelo was such an amazing experience. He and his assistant spent about 10 - 20 minutes just talking to me and hearing about the wedding and what I was looking for. They were so on the same page from the very beginning and helped create something that was more beautiful than I could have dreamed. We had a unique situation as we were actually having three events and he made a dress that not only was STUNNING but worked for our beach wedding, our city wedding and our country day wedding. Everything was ready on time and he was great with suggestions for styling for the different events - he even did some "freshing up" in between! I will never look as beautiful as I did that day and I have Angelo to thank for it!
My dream dress and amazing service!

I cannot recommend Angelo's store more highly. From start to finish, he made the experience fun, exciting, stress-free and memorable, resulting in the most beautiful dream wedding dress I could have hoped for (not to mention at a reasonable price)! I actually canceled my first gown at Kleinfeld Bridal and re-purchased my dress with Angelo, who gave me personal care and worked with me to custom design a dress that fit me perfectly. Everyone was blown away by my gown at the wedding and most importantly the whole process was wonderful. I agree with all the other great things others have said - definitely work with Angelo!
A Perfect Dress Shop

My experience with Angelo was incredible. Not only did I love my dress, but I loved the entire process. Angelo was so helpful, patient and made me feel beautiful at every fitting. My dress could not have looked more perfect on my wedding day - the quality is extremely high and Angelo's tailoring is top notch. For such a beautiful dress, the price is also extremely reasonable. I highly recommend this store.
the perfect dress
By tasleemv on 6/13/2013
From the moment I walked into Angelo's beautiful boutique, he made me feel comfortable and at home, like I was hanging out with a friend. As we all know, wedding dress shopping can be super stressful and daunting. Not with Angelo though, he knows exactly what works on your body type. He takes his time with you to understand exactly what you want and makes it happen. Angelo customizes the dress to fit and I was able to go back for multiple fittings which was great. The dress was perfect and gorgeous!! I was so happy and not only did he design, custom fit and make the dress he helped with everything else....from amazing ideas for hair, accessories, undergarments, how to sit and walk in the dress, even getting out of a cab!! Having Angelo design my wedding dress was an absolute dream.
Cannot Recommend Enough!

Angelo's shop hits all the right points for a positive experience: Stress-free: Check. Making appointments was easy via email or phone, and Angelo is quick and responsive. Fittings are laid-back and provide ample time. I never once felt rushed. Personal: Check. Angelo's dresses are stunning as it is. Then he will provide his own expertise to help you make any adjustments for your dress to be the ideal dress for you. The shop is small, so there are never lots of people bustling around. It's a quiet little oasis where Angelo can really focus on you. Reasonably-priced: Check. The prices are reasonable for anywhere, not just NYC. Not everyone is going to have the same design aesthetic as Angelo, and that's fine. But for any woman who finds herself perusing his website and liking what she sees, there is absolutely no reason not to go and find your dress at his shop!
A Fantastic Experience From Start to Finish
By DanaRachel on 11/4/2011
I cannot sing the praises of Angelo loud enough. I always knew that I wanted a distinctive, out of the ordinary dress, and Angelo and Laura worked with me (and my budget) to create the perfect gown, with splashes of color throughout. Both were responsive, professional, and wonderful throughout the process, even helping me to select my accessories for the perfect look. While many brides find dress shopping and the subsequent fittings to be stressful, I found it nothing but fun and I am so sad that it's now over! In addition to being gorgeous, my dress was comfortable and light-weight so I could dance (and eat!) all night long. Thank you, Angelo and Laura! You're both fantastic.

I recently went to a mini fashion show that Angelo Lambrou held during fashion week in NYC and his designs were simply fabulous! What shocked me even more were his extremely fair prices, trust me you cannot find couture like this anywhere else. I highly recommend his atelier to all, I wish I knew of him when I got married!!
Amazing dress and experience!
By janegershenzon on 9/20/2011
Angelo created the most amazing dress I've ever seen. From the first moment we met, he completely got my style, asthetic, personality, and what I imagined for my wedding dress. The dress he and his awesome team (Laura, Kendall, Onelia) created is more beautiful and exquisite than I ever imagined. With each fitting I saw my dress come to life, a process that is magical and I recommend to all brides. I've received numerous compliments on the dress- a stunning work of art!
The most fantastic wedding dress shopping experience ever!

Angelo and Laura are truly spectacular. Angelo is a visual and creative genius and Laura is a tailoring wizard. She has an extremely sharp tailoring eye and knows just what to do to get the dress to fit you perfectly. It is hard to convey how wonderful was my experience at Angelo's. This went far beyond a single wedding dress shopping event. From picking out my dress to attending all the fittings to the final product, in my case was about 8 months. Over that period I brought my best girlfriends, my mom and dad, and my future mother in law. Each time I went to a fitting it was like a celebration. The dress that Angelo and Laura created for me was exactly "Me" and everyone at my wedding said so. Angelo and Laura will listen to you and create a dress unique and beautiful for you. Each time I think about my dress I think about all the fun I had in creating it with Laura and Angelo in the presence of my family and friends. I was never stressed out, and the day that I had my dress on, it felt like a second skin it fit so perfectly. I highly highly recommend them. I will forever be grateful to them for making this experience so lovely and cherish all the memories we created together.
