For Mothers of the Bride
This midtown atelier stocks sophisticated floor-length gowns ($1,500 to $4,000), but also boasts a wide array of mom-appropriate cocktail dresses (from $895). It does custom orders, but will also do meticulous alterations to off-the-rack dresses.eleanorschain.com
At this 40-year-old Brooklyn atelier, mothers of the bride can select custom suits or designer evening gowns (Liancarlo, Alex Teih, Stephen Yearick), and Schain’s team of expert seamstresses will ensure the most flattering fit. Prices upon request.
