Our Story

When I was a child, I always dreamed of becoming a designer. Later, after graduating Architectural Design and Draft college, I found a new vision that became my future career. In 2003 I officially opened the door to the Atelier. 17 years later, and Atelier Stella has become one of the most prestigious and best-known fashion studios in San Francisco and the Bay Area.

Atelier Stella is my go-to when I need alterations for couture and designer pieces. Her workmanship is immaculate! From Zac Posen gowns (straight off the runway) to Celine blazers, she’s got me covered. She’s the only person I trust to handle these delicate pieces.

Stella, big thank you for designing and making for me the most beautiful wedding dress. It was absolutely perfect and made me feel chic, glamorous and incredibly stylish. It fully represents the fashion of 50’s. People were really taken by it! Thank you for all of your hard work and making it in such a short time!
