Irina is truly amazing. If you are looking for someone to work with on your wedding dress, I highly... suggest going for a consultation at and something Blue. We worked on my dress for almost 9 months, because I knew I wanted to make changes I went in early and we took our time. We worked together on bringing a vision to life. My sister and I came in over the months and had fun with her, sharing stories and she made it a very fun situation. She is fair on pricing and she is very trustworthy, and so important when working on something like this!read more
