Obviously everyone knows of Kleinfeld. Growing up in Brooklyn, when it was still in Brooklyn, I would walk around Bay Ridge with my best friend and dream of getting to go inside and see what was in their VAST, vast store. My first time there as a wedding professional was the most exciting thing in my life up to that point. We met people from Texas and Spain in the lobby while we waited and worked with Dianne. There truly isn’t any other place like it.
And, like everyone reading this, I am of course a fan of the show. I delight in it, really. It’s also the only wedding related show that doesn’t give me heart palpitations of anxiety that something will go wrong. And while the show does show case their many wonderful consultants, the fabulous Randy Fanoli, wonderful Joan and Ronnie and Mara, there is one face that is less familiar to viewers, but possibly the most AMAZING wedding professional in bridal fashion that I’ve yet to work with. Her name is Rochel Leah and she is the Kleinfeld specialist in Modifications, Religious alterations and build-ups. She is a Diamond among gems.
We recently took our client who is having a Modern Orthodox ceremony and needed an amazing, modern and young gown, but that still fit the religious guidelines of their Rabbi. Rochel Leah’s care before the appointment, during the appointment and her follow up to ensure that we were comfortable with all of our adjustments and promised us that she would be with us every step of the way. In short, she is simply magnificent. Should you need a build up of a dress or to shop for a dress with religious requirements in mind, Rochel Leah should most certainly be your first stop.
