I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful my experience was with Alvin and New Couture. Alvin and I worked together to come of with the perfect design for my wedding dress. We met for multiple appointments and fitting across several months. I enjoyed the time with Alvin because he was professional, a great listener, and really masterfully created what I wanted for my wedding dress. I had a very private, intimate wedding with only my husband and myself. As strangers looked on to our ceremony on the beach and as our loved ones received our wedding announcement, everyone was raving about the dress. It was not the "typically wedding dress" and the fit was beyond amazing. Alvin is super talented and beyond professionally. If I could afford it, he would make almost all my clothes! If you want a custom dress, there is no place and NO ONE that will do a better job than Alvin at New Couture...period! RUN TO HIM. He is amazing!!

I contracted Alvin several months before my daughters wedding. We discussed a dress that actually he designed and sold me on. As the weeks got closer to the wedding my dress was not making any progress. I expressed my concerns and he assured me over and over again. As it turns out he did not provide me with a dress until 3pm the day of my daughters wedding. It was not at all what we had discussed such as draping, slit ect. and he offered no apology or explanation. Although I paid him in full he should not have taken it as he did not provide the service he had promised.

Alvin is the best! I got my bridesmaids dresses from him and he did an AMAZING job altering my wedding gown. I thought I had the perfect dress for me but he made it even better!! He was a delight to work with and I highly recommend him! You won't find anyone else in DC who is really willing to work to make your dress perfect!

I previously took my gown to another tailor for several alterations, but even after the final fitting, I felt something was "off." Alvin did an amazing job under an extreme time crunch, and even fixed some things the other tailor (very highly reviewed in the DC area, by the way), had said were impossible to correct. Since he is an actual designer, he has a great eye and is extremely skilled with clothes. In addition, he is SO nice to work with. And affordable, too. I would highly recommend him.
