In London there is the golden mile of tailoring, Saville Row, where lords and dukes alike frequent for bespoke tailoring of their custom suits.
Right here in New York, women are blessed by Neil Bieff with the same exclusive custom-tailored dresses made to order for special occasions. From black tie evening gowns to fun sparkly cocktail dresses, Neil has a soft, sensuous, and subtle body-conscious way of cutting clothes for women. He orders only the finest French and Italian fabrics and works with his customers to make one-of-a-kind pieces.
He uses high-quality materials and beading sewn with extreme attention to detail and finish, often employing time-consuming techniques that allow the ruffles and shimmers to meld and become intrinsic to the fabric itself—a technique that is rare and a novelty as well. An artist by training, his embroideries take on a painter’s embrace of handwork from India, but in a modern day couture kind of way. He prides himself on testing new techniques in draping and thread work, a maverick if you will in the line of fashion.
Neil Bieff has dressed some of the world’s most beautiful women, including, Gloria Swanson, Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Ross, and Sharon Stone. Neil’s designs also appeal strongly to celebrity clientele, including Marion Cotillard, Nadja Auermann, and Charlotte Gainsbourg. To see his collections in person, private appointments must be made in advance.
