WHERE DREAMS ARE SEWN INTO REALITY
THE BESPOKE ATELIER
Sokayri Ateliers mission is to revive the age-old trade of dressmaking and give modern sophisticated women in Connecticut the luxurious bespoke shopping experience that they deserve. Each person who steps into our atelier is offered a creative experience limited only to their boundless imagination, where their fashion and lifestyle preferences are intricately woven into every element of their garments and accessories.
Sokayri Ateliers integrates only the most skilled craftsmen and finest quality materials into its couture sewing process in order to produce truly one of a kind pieces.
Our expert team of tailors provide a well rounded skill set of bespoke design and construction, capable of creating anything from a custom suit to a stunning special event gown. We start from a sketch and make everything by hand in our workshop in Darien. In addition to our custom orders, our team also offers a variety of tailoring services: including but not limited to: repairs, alterations, restorations, and customized accessories.
Cleaning & Preservation
We hand clean & protect your wedding gown using the MuseumCare™ ZeroCarbon™ cleaning process.
We specialize in restoring vintage bridal gowns and other antique garments to the true color without damage to delicate fabrics or dyes.
Our team specializes in restoring vintage veils, tiaras, ring pillows, wedding pouches & handkerchiefs of any material.
Christening Gowns & Children’s Clothing
We remove stains by hand and protect your christening gown or communion dress throughout our MuseumCare™ ZeroCarbon™ cleaning process.
Wedding Shoes Cleaning
Our team cleans & removes stains from your wedding shoes and can preserve them as well.
Uniforms & Tuxes
If you are wearing a uniform or own your tuxedo, careful cleaning is essential to prolonging the life of the fabric.
Reviving the almost extinct Custom Dress Making Trade
We are the only female run and owned tailors in Connecticut who are truly bespoke, as our 100% hand-tailored pieces are skillfully crafted for the most sophisticated women right in our Atelier in Darien CT, with our own hands.
Bespoke tailors mainly cater to men, leaving women who want to dress well often at a loss about where to get a well-cut shirt, suit, or dress.
The custom dressmaking trade is practically extinct. Even the most stylish and affluent women are prepared to wear the seemingly only choice of ready-to-wear, mass produced clothing.
They are left desperately hoping the piece will fit both the bust and the waist, or wishing it came with sleeves, or maybe in a different color/pattern.
