Stitch, a new alteration and design service, opened its flagship store in Hollywood this week. Stitch aims to be a one-stop-shop for tailoring, with a fast turnaround time and real-time updates on garment progress for clients.
Stitch already does on-location styling and altering for celebrity clients. The new shop gives consumers the opportunity to have a modern experience through paperless tickets.
The company also did away with public fittings—measurements will be taken in a private changing suite. The shop is a bright, airy space with expert seamstresses centrally located in the store where they can interact with customers. The store also features a lounge, decorated with paintings by local artists, and a rotating pop-up boutique will offer clothing for sale.
The store is also providing at-home, on-site services, 24-hours a day.
"It's time the alteration and design industry caught up with the modern world," said Founder Alexander Harden. "Stitch is a progressive brand, seeking to update and upgrade the traditional tailoring experience. Not only are we bringing the industry up-to-date technologically, but also technically. We've set an extremely high standard for our seamstresses, who wield both experience and professional training from reputable schools, so we guarantee our customers outstanding results, no matter the task."
Hollywood has become a popular destination for fashion specialty retailers this year. A few months ago, online, global fashion destination Nasty Gal opened the doors to its first retail location in Hollywood. And contemporary fashion brand Wildfox opened its first retail store on Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood.
