Whom to Hire

Guillermo Couture
Lauded for exquisite tailoring and edgy designs, Guillermo Molina has a client list that includes Park Avenue brides and fashion insiders—you can even commission a replica of a Valentino, Chanel, or Carolina Herrera wedding gown. Molina’s specialty is elongating the body—a plus for curvier women. Gowns start at $3,500. 237 W. 37th St., Ste. 903, nr. Seventh Ave.; 212-366-6965

Mandana Boutique
Give Davar Mandana a picture of your dream dress and he’ll give you a reproduction in as little as one week (he has a staff of sixteen). Mandana has earned a reputation for his lace gowns and fur capelets and is a favorite among brides seeking a glammy, old-Hollywood look. Gowns start at $2,500. 1175 Lexington Ave., nr. 80th St.; 212-861-2003

Dynasty Custom Tailors
Joseph Ting inherited his sewing skills from his father, William, who founded Dynasty in 1972. The younger Ting studied pattern-making at FIT, so if you can dream it, he can make it (especially if it involves fitted bodices and full skirts). Gowns start at $850. 6 E. 38th St., nr. Fifth Ave.; 212-679-1075

Mika Inatome
A 25-year vet of bridal couture, Mika Inatome does everything by hand in her loft studio. She travels to Italy and beyond to source her all-natural fabrics (silk, taffeta, chiffon, tulle) and specializes in slender, body-grazing dresses. Gowns start at $1,700. 93 Reade St., nr. Church St., Ste. 2; 212-966-7777
