Veil restoration

I brought a 170 year old family heirloom veil to Elena to be cleaned, restored and updated. I brought it to Elena very yellowed and out of date. Elena was able to get it cleaned and restore it to a beautiful shade of white. She was also able to remove a crown that the lace had been on and place it on a comb for a more contemporary look. The veil is just magnificent. In addition to that, Elena was a joy to work with. She was warm, responsive and so excited to work on this for me. When I wasn't able to visit the studio, she facetimed with me to go over some details. If you need a veil or gown restored, cleaned or updated, I would highly recommend Elena!

Exceptional services

I would highly recommend Sokayri to any bride that needs wedding dress alterations. Sokayri were able to make 4 alternations to my dress in less than 2 weeks. They made me feel at home from the minute I walked in, reassuring me constantly and making me feel calm despite all the wedding stress. They are super professional and were able to make some complex alterations on my very delicate wedding dress, without any hassles. Thank you to the team at Sokayri for making my experience so wonderful and for all your help and for the exceptional service.
