    A Piece of Wearable Art!

    Paula and her team of extraordinary professionals created a magnificent piece of art for me to wear to my son's wedding. They applied their creativity and incredible skill to my vision and suffice it to say they exceeded my expectations in every way! Strangers stopped to admire the dress, (not me, LOL) with more than one exclaiming that it was one of the most beautiful dresses they had even seen! I recommend Paula, Susan, Gena and the rest of the amazing Varsalona team wholeheartedly, and without reservation.

    Why sweat and fight your way through racks of clothing and unpleasant dressing rooms with something you love not being ‘quite right’ in the fit when you can go to Paula’s salon and be taken care of in a personal setting, modify fabrics, lengths and conjure up the unique version of YOU... a fabulous experience. I felt like a Godess and the ladies at Paula Varsalona made sure I was treated like one.

    I am so pleased that I had Paul Varsalona and her team create the gown I wore for my son's wedding. She truly knows how to create for your figure, and has impeccable styling and workmanship. I not only recommend her, I will absolutely use her again. Her entire team is professional, approachable and truly caring. What a marvelous find!

    I stumbled into Paula Varsalona's shop on a whim, and fell immediately in love with her dresses. I was on a budget, so couldn't afford for the store to make me a new dress (which is their primary business model), but they let me look around at the sample dresses on the rack. I fell in love with one particular dress, but it was a bit more than I wanted to spend. The woman helping me--who is actually a seamstress there--asked what I was hoping to spend, and said, "We can do that!" (they were moving inventory to prepare for the new season). I also needed part of the dress tailored, and she was happy to help me. They were even able to ship the dress to my home in Washington. I LOVE my wedding dress, and am so glad I found them!

    I originally purchased my dress from a small boutique in Westchester, NY, which unexpectedly closed two months into my wedding planning. The designer of my dress, Paula Varsalona, immediately invited me to her studio in NYC to continue my fittings. Paula was present at the first fitting and took the time to speak with me about my wedding and my expectations for the dress. Susan from her team was also helpful throughout the process. She was responsive and supportive. When I picked up my dress, I was blown away by how perfectly the dress fit! Thanks to Paula and Susan, I wore my dream dress at my wedding this past weekend. The tailoring was incredible and I received so many compliments from my guests. I feel blessed to have worked directly with the designer and recommend Paula to all brides!

    Paula's team were great! They worked their magic and made the wedding dress fit like a glove. The dress was amazing. I felt perfect on my wedding day thanks to their alterations.

    They were very snobby when we first arrived, but we liked that, it added to the appeal. When it became clear that we were serious customers, the designer came out, once again, she was not friendly, but I still felt important. The dress was amazing, expensive, but amazing, and we also bought my headpiece from the vendor. The service was extremely good, they even advised me how I could get my dress across the Atlantic (as hand-luggage on the plane in a garment bag), and they packed it up with a cardboard body inside so it would not crease. The dress was ready well in advance of when I needed it.

    I found a stunning gown at Varsalona Bridal during a sample sale. Her dresses are absolutely gorgeous. It was a choice between 'beautiful' and 'more beautiful'. I was somewhat put off by the cost of the alterations, as it seemed that there were extra charges for things that I thought were included. Also, I came for one of my fittings and another client - a mother of the bride - was still there from an earlier appointment. Although she vacated the fitting room, she continued to command the attention of Paula and her staff. I did not appreciate this encroachment on my appointment and the attention that I needed to get my gown fitted properly. It worked out in the end, thankfully.
