Best haute couture house in New York City.
German Valdivia provides women's haute couture, demi-couture and custom bridal services. Each piece begins with initial design consultation, sketching, and muslin pattern from scratch. Full garment is crafted and then fitted onto clients. Though we do machine sew some seams, our haute couture pieces have the majority of components stitched or embellished by hand. By design, this process is much more cost prohibitive for some clients. If so, you can consider our made-to-measure services.
Unmatched made-to-measure in New York City.
When haute couture is cost prohibitive, we provide made-to-measure services. Our made-to-measure services begin with selecting a style from the showroom and having a version of it created based on your measurements. This process typically does not require a muslin but does allow for some customizations of color, beading and other elements (subject to pricing differentials, of course).
Built to last with timeless appeal.
Haute couture and made-to-measure pieces built by German Valdivia have a heir loom quality difficult to find in traditional department store or boutiques. Gowns and cocktail dresses we have built for women throughout the years have been passed onto their daughters. There is great care taken into the execution of all our pieces so you can leave assured in fit and function.
