50th Years Anniversary

 

Mariella Creations Inc was a dream for Antonietta. She always wanted to have her dressmaking and women's clothing shop. Antonietta and her husband Antonio made that dream come true in 1972 and named the store after their daughter Mariella. They started with a small dress shop and custom making. In the 70's more women were going into the workforce and they noticed that women needed suits. No one at the time altered a suit for a lady like they did for a man. So that’s how Antonietta and Tony started their business selling suits and dresses that were impeccably altered. Their clientele started to ask Antonietta to make their daughter's wedding gowns and Mothers' gowns. This part of the business boomed because there weren’t many bridal shops around. In the 70s many girls also wore their Mother’s weddings gowns and Antonietta would refurbish and redesign them. The Garofalo family outgrew the store so in 1982 a renovation took place. They enlarged the store to the second floor for storage and the first floor was selling wedding gowns, Mothers, and bridesmaids. Customers came from all over the state and as far as Boston and New York. They loved the personal attention to the alterations and all the details. Their daughter worked part-time but once she graduated from college in 1982 and the new renovation was complete Mariella worked full-time as manager and buyer. Antonio and Antonietta dreamed that one day Mariella could take over the business. Mariella Creations had another facelift in 1992.
