Testimonials for Julia Needlman   Home



Julia's clothes are not only 
better made than anything you could buy in a store, but they fit my individual 
personality perfectly.I can't imagine going on stage without wearing something 
by Julia. And these days, audience members compliment me on my clothes almost 
as much as my performances! Rachel Barton Pine, violinist


Thank you so much! You not only altered 
my clothes, you altered my self image! Working with you is like having Tim Gunn 
and Gretta Monahan from Tim Gunn's Guide to Style wrapped up in one person. You not 
only made my clothes look fantastic, you helped me understand how to select clothes 
that flatter my figure and highlight those parts you pointed out as lovely. Thanks 
to you, I've learned to embrace my voluptious Marilyn Monroe figure and for the first 
time EVER I look in the mirror and see the positive rather than focusing on the 
negative. You truly have a gift for making people look their best and FEEL beautiful!

Julia- I really can't say enough about the 
beautiful wedding dress you created for me! I absolutely loved it - everyone says 
that it was 'totally you'. I was so comfortable too.It felt 'me' yet I felt special 
and elegant.Another gift you gave me was 'walking me through the journey.' You are 
the type of artist who is able to really understand a person and create something 
that not only represents that person but also brings out the best in that person. 
Incredibly insightful! I'm really glad that we met and had a chance to get to know 
each other. Thanks again for your friendship and a wonderful dress experience and 
a beautiful dress as a result! Love, Winnie 



I wish you could have been there to share 
our big day with us! We must have done something right in life to be granted such an 
extraordinary day. I cannot thank you enough for creating and making my wedding dress. 
It was everything I expected and much, much more-- I felt like a million bucks and 
the fact that it withstood some pretty wild partying long into the night is itself 
a tribute to your skills as a seamstress! Beata

Thank you so much for everything that you 
did to make my wedding a happy event. If it weren't for you and your calming influence 
and cool head, I surely would have slit my wrists. Of course, I also thank you for the 
'dress of my dreams'. We did it again! Every time someone complimented me on my dress, 
my response was- Thank you, Julia is a genius. That you are. as a small token of my 
appreciation I'm going to try to remain the same size until your fashion show! Please
