Thirty years ago, Marilyn Diligenti spent her spare time scouring the fashion exchange in search of high-end threads, which she then sold to friends out of her home. Her keen eye for timeless, flattering ensembles earned her a devoted following, and she soon expanded from her living room to a storefront in Caulfield Village.
Now, Ms. Diligenti applies the same keen eye to scout out elegant apparel for women and girls by designers such as Michael Kors, Betty Barclay, Twin-Set, and Save the Queen. She helps each customer hone in on styles that not only align with trends, but complement her figure, lifestyle, and fashion sense. To help achieve that goal, her staff of fashion experts can plan personal-shopping sessions to recalibrate a lackluster wardrobe, and the store’s in-house tailor can custom-fit garments.
