Mia moved to California in 2008 to pursue her love of technical design and sewing. As a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising she launched her career in luxury working under Carolina Herrera as a tailor, while there she perfected her love of red-carpet preparation and styling. Mia consistently works with various stylists and costumers in order to develop a client’s image, notable for awards like The Oscars, Grammys, SAG Awards and more. She then joined Louis Vuitton for the launch of the Nicolas Ghesquiere collection. Where she single handedly managed the Rodeo Dr. tailoring needs of their highly-discerning clientele.

For all appointment requests please email me at: mia@mdtailoring.com

***Please note that I work on a first come first serve basis Tuesday- Friday 9-6 Pm. My availability for rush work can be very limited- please plan accordingly!

In studio fitting fee with Mia: $95 per hour (Pricing subject to change, this is for the fittings alone, tailoring costs are in addition to this. Each time you try on the garment with me I consider this a fitting)

Effective June 1st 2019, I will be moving into a new, but much smaller studio, in the Los Angeles, Ca 90035 area. I kindly ask that you refrain from bringing additional persons with you to all fittings so that I can focus on you and your garments and we have the space to work.

I typically recommend beginning bridal alterations 5-6 weeks prior to the event date. If your alterations involve major design changes that require multiple fittings, then we can start as soon as you have your gown, shoes and undergarments. I do also recommend preparing to have a designated person in your wedding party or family to attend a fitting to learn how to bustle your gown.

Full traditional bridal fitting,  hemming and bustling generally start at $950. I have bridal gown/dress minimum of $500. The cost of gown alterations can vary significantly depending on your dress’s number of layers, lining, under structure/boning, lace, fabric, cut, hem, finish, buttons, zippers, belt, corset, bustle, train. To request a quote for you gown please email a photo or link to your dress, along with your wedding date and a list of your anticipated alterations to mia@mdtailoring.com

  • Number of layers
  • Lining
  • Understructure/boning
  • Lace and beading
  • Fabric cut
  • Hem
  • Buttons
  • Belt
  • Zipper
  • Corset
  • Train
  • Bustle

I currently accept cash, check, all major credit cards, paypal and venmo for payment. Prior to starting bridal alterations I do require a 50% deposit.


I do offer made to measure gowns. Depending on the cost and style gowns typically start at $10,000 and up- not including the cost of fabric. This will include 3-4 fittings, including one with a muslin prior to cutting the fabric.


Depending on the style of gown you have, a veil that is custom made can add but not distract from the style of your gown. I offer trim sourcing, hand bead work as well as both silk and regular tulle to create the veil of your dreams. I do also have a back stock of veils and accessories at my studio.
