Nora was absolutely incredible! She worked with my schedule which I thought was asking to much. The alterations done to my suit were absolutely perfect! 10/10 will go to her always.

Nora is the absolute BEST. She has altered all fabric types and all clothing types for me. I would not go anywhere else.

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.

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.
