What Makes Us... Us.
Being a tailor is one of the most rewarding things I’ve experienced. With our roots firmly planted in the rich soil that is the ever evolving city of Nashville, we are a small business with large aspirations.
Unlike other ownership stories, mine is a bit unique. I’ve never held another job and never punched a clock for anyone. I’ve done nothing but sew since I was in my single digits. In fact, I can barely remember my life before I started. It’s no secret that I’m a grade-school drop-out. I’m not ashamed of it, nor do I attempt to hide it. Before there were schools, there were family trades. Children followed their parent’s line of work and took over when it became time. My family has been tailoring clothing professionally since the late 1800’s.
Can you think of a more beautiful way to keep a tradition alive? I can’t.
The soul of Only One Tailoring was conceived and nurtured by my parents through the sweat of their brow, sore fingers and an uncompromising dedication to their clientele. For a quick background note, my mother started as my grandmother’s apprentice at the age of six. As she progressed in her apprenticeship, she won countless competitions and placed second to only the eldest and best of her time.
In 2009, after apprenticing under my mother for almost seventeen years, I was entrusted with the leadership of my parents other baby, Only One Tailoring.
Since then I’ve expanded the business to employ some of the most talented people I have ever met. They adhere to the same foundation that I was taught growing up — always do everything you can to make sure your client’s needs are taken care of. That foundation is the reason we’ve skyrocketed to proudly be Nashville’s highest rated alterations and tailoring shop. It’s my hope that our passion and dedication are seen in everything we do for you.
We open the doors every morning with the intent to keep the heart of what my parents built at the forefront of who we are. My team and I thrive on continuing their model of positivity, caring, compassion and love of what we do.
Sure it sounds cheesy, but you guys really are the reason we have a smile on our faces every day.
