Marie Custom Design


Marie Myrlande has been providing fashion and dressmaking services for the past 30 years. Marie started sewing doll dresses at the age of 8 and designed her first creation, a jumpsuit when she was 14 years old.

She learned at the hands of her grandmother, who was a professional dressmaker and her mother who was an accomplished dressmaker. Marie is a very passionate dressmaker and freelance patternmaker.

After graduating from “Centre d'Entr'aide Sociale d'Education Familiale” a professional sewing school, Marie opened a couture salon and developed a significant clientele. She taught sewing lessons to students who were as passionate as she was. They reached a level of proficiency and became dressmakers certified by the “Department Des Affaires Sociales” in Haiti.

When Marie came to the U.S. she attended the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) where she received her Associate Degree in Business Management in 1993. Marie also graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) majoring in Pattern making, in which she received an Associate Degree in 1998. She was a production assistant intern at Bonnie and Norma where she learned the steps vital to produce a line.

Marie worked for Lady Vivienne, a couture house, as a Quality Control Spec Technician for the special order line. There she learned new techniques and incorporated the skills she already knew through education and some practice. She also worked at André Raphael Inc/ Raquel Couture as an Assistant Embroidery Designer. While working in the garment industry Marie was still managing her home business and continued to expand an established clientele.

Marie’s goal is to satisfy her customers and make them feel confident about themselves with their finished garment. Marie is very supportive in assisting her clients by choosing styles, fabrics, trims, and accessories.

She is currently a member of the FIT Alumni Association, Professional Association of Custom Clothiers (PACC), the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) and the Brooklyn Executive Business Women Association (BEBWA) which is NAFE's local Network.
