Claire's journey as a master seamstress, shirtmaker, tailor, & designer began in 1971,
when she married the original shirtmaker of Beverly Hills Mr. Alex.
Mr. Alex was born into a family of shirtmakers & tailors. His father Joseph was a master craftsman and taught him at a very young age. His Uncle was a shirtmaker and his mother was a master seamstress. He first opened in Beverly Hills on Burton Way, in the historic small stretch of retail near Doheny & Burton Way. In 1971 he married Claire and thus began her apprenticeship.
From Burton Way to South Santa Monica Blvd, Claire & Mr. Alex have partnered together to create one of the most unique and talented tailoring tandems, marrying unique and complimenting styles of design and craft.
Claire's extraordinary experience with every aspect of men & women's custom clothing is unbelievably unique. From initial design through the completion of the garment, her style, attention to detail, and unwavering pursuit of quality is easily apparent in her custom blouses, jackets, pants, suits, & dresses for women.
