ONE OF A KIND DESIGNS
Gloria Couture provides an intimate one on one shopping experience. Our goal is to meet the unique needs of each of our clients by working closely with them to produce garments of exquisite high fashion to compliment both their body and individual style.
Whether you come in with a magazine cut out, a favorite garment from home that you would like to replicate, or simply a vision, we specialize in creating your dream garment from scratch. We create exquisite wedding gowns, mother of the bride & groom gowns, evening gowns, cocktail dresses, prom & party dresses, women's suits, pants, blouses, bustiers, boleros, and shawls.
For those who need a special cocktail dress or gown immediately, We carry various retail evening wear brands such as, Terani Couture, Lara, and Saboroma. These are products that come ready made, and can be tailored to suit your specific tastes and preferences. We have a beautiful selection of Bat Mitzvah, Homecoming, Quince & Sweet 16, Prom, Wedding, Mother of the Bride and Groom dresses.
We provide a full service in expert alterations for men, women, and children. Alteration services range from jean hems to completely reinventing a garment.
Each of our custom made garments are lovingly created from scratch. We begin by taking the time to get to know the customer and discuss possible styles. From there we take measurements, choose fabrics, and finalize the design. For the first fitting, we create a unique muslin pattern of the garment, which we then fit to the body and make adjustments to before cutting the fabric. Once the pattern is fitted and finalized we begin working with the fabric. We schedule as many or as few fittings as required until the garment is completed.
Since we prefer not to rush the process, we require a minimum of three months time to complete custom made orders.
With a wide variety of laces, silks, brocades, fine tweed boucles, suedes, leathers, wools, men's suiting fabrics, trimmings, and crystal accents to choose from, we make stunning clothing for all figures.
Price is determined based on the fabrics chosen and the level of difficulty of the design.

Custom Evening Gowns have a starting price of $2,900 & up

All prices are discussed with and disclosed to the customer at the beginning of the process. A 50% deposit is required to begin work on the muslin pattern, and the balance is paid upon completion. Pricing does not change throughout the process unless the design changes drastically or new work is added to the garment. For customers that come in from out of town, we are happy to schedule multiple fittings over the course of a couple trips. Due to the nature of the work involved, all custom made orders are final sale and are neither returnable nor exchangeable once the fabric is cut.
Gloria learned the trade of custom clothing design from her father, Miguel Angel Granada, as a child growing up in Colombia. Miguel was an expert tailor who specialized in men's suits. In April of 1975, a few years after moving to the United States, Gloria opened her first small boutique in North Miami, Florida. From there her business grew as she came to make a name for herself among the elite of the South Florida community.
In 1993, Gloria moved Gloria Couture to Bay Harbor Islands, just down the street from the Bal Harbour Shops. Here her reputation for top service and exceptional garment making continued to flourish. Most recently, Gloria Couture moved to its newest location on Biscayne Boulevard in Keystone Plaza in North Miami Beach, FL.
For over 45 years Gloria and her team of expert seamstresses have crafted exquisite gowns, suits, cocktail dresses, and every day fashions, complimenting all styles, sizes, and tastes. Gloria Couture has made custom creations for countless charity events, balls, galas, weddings, beauty pageants, parties, and foreign royalty.
Today Gloria and her daughter, Joanna, work together in their family business bringing high fashion and style to a worldwide community of clients.

"We planned our wedding in a couple of months and were told by many of the wedding shops that it was not sufficient time to order a gown. Gloria Couture delivered a spectacular, high fashion gown for the bride, as well as bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride dress and gorgeous dresses for sisters and other female family members that were chic and perfectly tailored. Gloria and her staff have a discerning eye and offer couture fit and details at incredible value. Bravo Gloria!"
I was in need of a baptism gown for my baby girl. I searched the internet, boutiques, pinterest and even some local upscale baby stores. Nothing I found was what I had in mind. I went into Gloria Couture and met with Gloria and Joanna and they made my dreams reality. I always dreamt of a princess baby baptism dress- and WOW was it that!!! Never have I imagined a dress beyond breath taking. They both listened to me and created what I had in mind to a T! They had excellent ideas on what to place where and then executed it. Her staff is also very friendly, personable and knowledgable as well. I highly recommend going to see them and you will be pleasantly pleased. Thank you again ladies!
I first met Gloria in 2008 when I needed a gown for the Presidential Inaugural Ball. It was a last minute request and Gloria was able to make a beautiful custom gown for me in a matter of days! Since that time I have been able to call upon Gloria to custom design several gowns and dresses. She also has retail gowns, dresses, and jackets which are well made and well priced. Gloria is a great dressmaker and a phenomenal and compassionate human being. It is rare to find a shop owner like her in Miami who provides detailed and personalized service.
I will come back to these wonderful women very soon! They are creative, professional, and they don't let you leave until your garment is perfected. They do absolutely beautiful work on alterations and "re-imagining" an item of clothing. They are incredibly friendly and easy to work with. I highly recommend them.
