There is a saying at D&B, “If it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t flatter.” Angela is one of the amazing seamstresses that ensures everything fits, and of course, flatters!!
At D&B we really do feel like one big family. Angela started to work for Gabe when she was only 34, and 43 years later Angela is still going strong. Angela credits her mother who taught her the art of sewing when she was a young girl in Italy. Angela came to this country at 22 and we must admit, we are so very happy that she did!
When Angela is not making your garments look and feel incredible she likes to go out dancing and spending time with family & friends.
Kenny has been working at D&B since 2011. His specialty is pressing the garments and making sure they are pressed properly. He learned how to press at a young age from his mother. He enjoys spending time with his kids and family. Kenny is a sports fanatic and also enjoys traveling.
