These are pieces 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. Our expert staff has extensive experience working with high end designer brands to ensure that the alterations done to these exceptionally fine pieces of clothing look original and unaltered, while achieving a perfect fit.
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.
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!"
