My Story

With over 25 years of experience working on some of Broadway's most recognizable Costumes, I bring a unique and vibrant approach to my craft. Working on many Film and TV productions has cultivated my ability to listen keenly, work efficiently, and deliver promptly.
No matter how big or small the project, it is my passion to turn that spark of an idea into a reality. 
I am thrilled to be able to work with those in the Long Island area who need something created, altered, or repaired and won't trust their beloved item in just anyone's hands.
I work closely with each one of my customers to provide them with exactly what they want,
and oftentimes more.

Annette created my One of a kind, stunning Wedding gown and it was absolutely the dress of my dreams! All my guests were raving about it. She was professional and patient. I could not imagine having had a better experience!- KW

I wanted to wear my Mother's wedding gown, but it was just too dated for my taste. Annette transformed it into a completely new dress that was modern and matched my style perfectly! The process was easy and she added so many beautiful details that I didnt even think of. Can't recommend enough!- JL

I went to Annette with a bag full of my son's old jerseys, not knowing what I wanted to do with them. She created the most amazing throw blanket out of them. My son loves it and wont part with it. She does beautiful work!- LB

Due to the pandemic, I needed masks in order to reopen my business. I had some special requests. Annette made them quickly and they were exactly what i needed. My clients love them!- AF
