Nora is amazing, she made me feel welcome the moment I walked in. The consultation was thorough and she's a master of her craft. Highly efficient and yet warm, welcoming and friendly. I recommend Nora if you need a suit altered in anyway.

Professional service and excellent results every time. I’ve lived here most of my life, and I believe Nora to be certainly one the best tailors in Richmond. Wayne W.

I had never had to get something altered before and a lot of the places I tried calling were booked several weeks out. Nora was able to fit me in very quickly --after hours-- and was so lovely to me throughout the process. I was very pleased with the turnaround and the final product.

About Us

My name is Nora Santana, and I am the professional alterations expert at Art Tailors.  I have over 25 years of experience in custom design and alterations of all different types of men, women’s, and children’s clothing.  Originally from Bogota Colombia, I have an industrial fashion degree from Arturo Tejada Cano, the premier fashion design college in Colombia.    

Art Tailors in Carytown was originally founded in 1953 by Solomon Zinn, a survivor of the holocaust during World War II.  I provide expert alterations and design on traditional, contemporary, and trending fashion styles, while continuing the high quality and dedication to friendly customer service that has been a tradition at Art Tailors for over 65 years. 

I work on all types of clothing, including wedding gowns, prom dresses, men’s suits and jackets, tuxedos, coats, and children’s clothing.  I provide both basic repair of damaged clothing as well as highly specialized alterations.   I provide highly individualized alteration services, realizing that every customer is unique, as is their need for alteration services.
