Meet Liz Bordessa of Fit & Style in Long Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Liz Bordessa.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Liz. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
We opened as a traditional tailoring service in 1985. Cloths were an investment, before fast fashion and off shore garment manufacturing, and fit was important. As fashion trends changed we evolved our services to help people find their individual style as well as their perfect fit.

Today we offer wardrobe consulting in addition to our full tailoring service. Our wardrobe consulting service range from a one-on-one consultation with a Stylist, to creating a personalized style book to help clients build a fulfilling wardrobe.

Fit & Style is committed to delivering the most authentic personal styling experience. We help our clients figure out what looks good, what must go, and which items would benefit from our custom tailoring service.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
California casual and fast fashion has changed the way people dress and changed their need to use traditional tailoring services. This shift has been a challenge for us as less people consider tailoring their clothing.

Style can be elusive and ever evolving, making choosing clothes that speak to your personality and body type a challenge. That’s where our opportunity comes.

We want to help people buy what will look good on them, they will feel good about, and wear. We feel it’s more than just clothes, we hope to empower our clients to discover what clothes suit their personality and body type, and then wearing them in a way that’s unique to them.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Fit & Style – what should we know?
At Fit & Style, we’ve nailed down the steps to discovering the looks that reveal your most confident self. We do this by offering a variety of services that are tailored to your specific needs.

Need help with your image, knowing what to wear or reducing purchasing mistakes; we offer personal style consultations to create your very own style book that becomes your go-to guide for what colors, style lines and trends look best on your body type and for your personality.

Have a closet full of items you don’t wear or are out of date; we offer wardrobe consultations to go over piece by piece to see what stays, what goes and what needs to be updated for a fresh look.

Have an item that just doesn’t fit right, our stylists are experts in fit as well and can advise you what adjustments can be made for that custom made look.

The unique relationships between our stylist and our clients are at the center of everything we do. Whether you are a client simply coming in to hem your newest denim purchase or a client who wants a complete wardrobe audit of what to keep and what to give away, we take pride in demonstrating our high level of expertise as well as capturing each client’s unique needs.

Fit & Style is proof that traditional, time-honored craft can be synonymous with sustainability without having to sacrifice looking great. We take the anxiety out of responsible shopping. Our talented tailors can make your clothing evolve with you for the same price you’d pay to keep repurchasing fast- fashion.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Craftsmanship. Trends come and go, but great craftsmanship is a constant.

Great craftsmanship is about listening to what our clients need. Attention to detail, quality, passion, and experience are also involved in every aspect of what Fit & Style does. We do what we love and we do it right.
