Owner and operator Milva Carucci brought her passion for dressmaking to life by opening the doors to first what was an alterations business Alterations by MC several years ago.
Based in the charming country town of Mareeba, FNQ, Milva experienced first hand the pure frustrating and inconvenience of not finding something to build her wardrobe or something suitable for a special event. So by offering alterations, tailoring and mending services the FNQ was slowly rekindling those loved- well worn favourites and having well-fitted new additions of clothing that was both stylish and flattering.
Since those early years the business has grown and taken a slightly different approach. Through word-of-mouth referrals and Milva's dedication to providing a flexible and customised service to suit her clients' needs, including on the day bridal party repairs and emergency alterations, she was being approached by women all over the state to 'make them something special' for an upcoming event.
Racewear, Mother's of the bride, bridesmaids, workwear, one off staple wardrobe items, it was becoming apparent that Milva's attention to detail, knowledge and pure love of providing women with a custom piece of amazingness to step into was a sort after affair!
So in late 2015, Milva Carucci Designs transpired! Together with Milva's creative and artistic flair for fashion and creating that custom made piece and over 25 years of experience, women will now be able to buy seasonal one-off ready to wear pieces, in addition to custom orders.
So if you have an event coming up and no idea where to start with an outfit, fabric or design, contact Milva for a friendly 'fashion chat' and treat yourself to an amazing outfit that people will be commenting on for years to come!
