Custom clothier, dressmaker and tailor, Mariana Duduca started her career at the age of 10 by crafting herself a wool purse from scratch. From cutting the living room curtains, to her dad’s shirts, Mariana was also making herself wedding dresses. From such an early age she loved clothes and the ability of make different styles by transforming ready pieces. “I knew I wanted to be a seamstress because I was fascinated by fabrics and fashion shows. I even chose to attend a special textiles school. I love the feeling of materials and the potential every piece has in my hands. Sewing is an art for me and I love anything complex that requires a lot of hours and work to be put into it. In fact, I spent the earlier 10 years of my career working with leather and fur – I know the processing aspect inside and out. You couldn’t go more complex than that.”
Through schooling and working with various designers in Quebec and Ontario, as well as working on costumes for movies and publications, Mariana excels in her tailoring techniques and attention to detail and customer needs. She opened her independent business in 2007 with the sole purpose to provide personal connection and make her customers happy. She refuses to take money before the service is complete and often says: “Individuality is the key to dressing well.” She has a lot of ideas and amazing suggestions. Through the years, she has built a database of return customers who are satisfied and continue to choose her services because she gives them feedback and information others would not. Mariana says it’s important to know yourself well. Not only your advantages, like your curves and your classiness, but also, more importantly, your disadvantages, so you can better your wardrobe from there. “I was born wanting it – it has been the dream of a lifetime to own by own business. My job is simply to make my clients look beautiful in their fashion clothes. And I love every day of it.”
Tailoring should be impeccable and the finish should be luxurious. But with Acacia Couture, it’s a lot more than that. It is about the connection with the designer. It is about building relationships and having trust in each other. It’s about the whole experience! Come and see for yourself.
"I had received three elegant skirts as part of a gift. Two of them needed alterations to be done at the waist. I was referred to Mariana and could not believe the efficiency, professionalism, and friendliness of her services from the start. She took care of me beyond any expectation I had. Not only did she finish the job quick, but also ended up making suggestions on the length of the skirts; something I had not even thought of. She did an incredible job and I will never wonder again when I have a question or need to fix any of my clothes. Mariana would be my first choice, no doubt about it!" - Zhasmina Zheleva, Toronto
