Michael Shimunoff’s career as a tailor began at an age when most kids are just getting their braces off. At 13, Michael began apprenticing in his native city of Samarkand, Uzbekistan. He immigrated to New York City four years later. It was here that Michael attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, worked in various factories and stores, and amassed the skills necessary to produce high-end custom clothing, some of which has been featured in fashion shows. Since founding La Moda Custom Tailors in 1999, Michael, with the help of his staff of expert tailors, has altered, cleaned, and repaired thousands of garments, from suits and uniforms to wedding dresses and handbags.
The garment cleansers of Prestige Laundry V banish dirt, stains, and streaks without the use of water. Inside their Forest Hills facility, they take in two-piece suits, jeans, ties, shirts, and dresses and give them a thorough cleaning before returning them wrinkle-free and ready for clients or their scarecrows to wear.
