I have had the greatest pleasure of knowing Vartan for nearly 20 years. He, as well as his staff, inclusive of, but not limited to Bernardo, are all world class. And as a member of a family with a long history of admiring, purchasing and wearing wonderful clothes from all over the world and a countless variety of designers - Vartan has always addressed any and all matters of alteration(s). His work and attention to detail is extraordinary, and he has never disappointed me and or any of my family members, not to mention the numerous friends and associates I've sent his way. He is, simply put, a treasure - and a valuable asset to the Newport Beach. And should your shoes, belts, handbags et al need any work of this caliber Avo (next door 'Deluxe Shoe) is the man to see.
