American Couture: Remarkable Gowns and Bespoke Tailoring

Guillermo Molina has been designing and handcrafting gowns for more than 20 years. Guillermo arrived in the United States from Ecuador at the age of 10, and immediately set about making his relatives and Brooklyn neighbors look sensational.

Guillermo brings a fierce commitment to making customers look their very best, his honest advice on what designs will make that happen, understanding of garment design, construction, and the individual properties of fabrics — from silk, wool, cashmere, to tulle and antique lace.
