As our community continues to progress into the future, ready-to-wear clothing has become increasingly more important as a basic necessity in our lives. Couture clothing is now a thing of the past because let’s face it who has the time, patience and opulence to have their clothes hand made? But on the other hand, who would want their clothing to be ill fitting, utilitarian and designed for the masses?
By 2000, Maria Lucia “Lucille” Carlos alongside her business partners had already established auniform manufacturing company. Having been part of the manufacturing side, she had the brilliant idea to strike the perfect balance between the couture craftsmanship of the past and the mass-production of the future. It is from this idea that “Alterations Plus” had come about. With this shop, she attempts to outfit each individual with the right fit for their body type using the clothing they already own solely through altering.
In this decade alone, ‘Alterations Plus’ has revolutionized the clothing industry adding a new layer of individuality to an otherwise standardized world. It has become a one-stop shop for all your clothing needs providing professional alterations, repairs and exemplary service. It is now the standard by which others are measured.
Combining her already reputable garment manufacturing business, which possesses many specialized machinery and tools, with her boutique-style alterations services, the shop provides services that simply cannot be supplied at other places such as neighborhood seamstresses and tailors. Alterations Plus has even begun to adapt procedures, especially in hemming, that is not regularly seen at other places in the Philippines.
Today, Alterations Plus has evolved to offer a variety of services. In addition to clothing alterations and repairs, it offers made to order clothing, costumes, school and office uniforms, custom made curtains, upholstery and even wedding gown packages that suit every budget. More recently, the company has expanded to offer added services to respond to your needs that include dry cleaning, pressing and ironing and stain removal.
Alterations Plus has grown to 23 branches in Metro and franchises beyond the metropolis.
