That Georgina Boutique boasts a client base of the world’s best-dressed and most discerning women is not surprising. Since its inception 30 years ago, this Five Towns treasure has distinguished itself as the premier purveyor and the gold standard of exclusive women’s couture and custom fashion. Indeed, Georgina Boutique is the ultimate shopping experience, featuring style, selection and signature service that is second to none.
Tony Scardino, the owner of the boutique, has created the perfect environment for his clients to shop in elegance and comfort. They had me from the moment I entered the charming and beautifully appointed home-like setting in the heart of Woodmere. Warm, welcoming, and devoid of any pressure, Georgina Boutique presents an extraordinary experience. The congenial atmosphere that permeates the premises reflects Tony’s own amiable personality. Expect to be pampered and catered to by Tony and his staff of fashion stylists and to emerge with a beautifully coordinated wardrobe and look that reflects your unique look, personality, and lifestyle. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a delicious cup of hot chocolate. There is no need for you to ascend the stairs, as each impeccably designed item will be brought to you.
With his finger on the pulse of fashion, Tony handpicks each exquisite piece that is showcased in his elegant emporium. Featuring the collections of Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Reem Acra, Celine, Zac Posen, Kim Hicks, and Robert Danes, as well as such up-and-coming designers as Peter Som, Andrew Gn, and other fashion stars, Georgina Boutique offers women a beautiful and highly exclusive fashion option.
Attuned to the needs of our community, he dares to tread where no one has before, dressing Orthodox women in the most celebrated designer collections while adhering to and respecting our halachic concerns.
“We are a specialty store where customer service is of paramount concern,” Tony explained. “Georgina Boutique is a family business-we were founded by Christina Makowsky thirty years ago; in fact, we have quite a few clients of three generations. Our clients come to us from all over the world. Our team of professionals is unparalleled in creating a complete and coordinated look for every client who walks through our doors. At Georgina Boutique, we ‘make it happen’-creating the perfect look for every woman that is hers alone. Our full-service stylist offers clients a complete look from head to toe. We carry shoes, bags, accessories, and resort wear. We have a seamstress on premises catering to everyone’s needs. Whether you are looking for a complete wardrobe or for that one special piece, Georgina affords you the best fashion experience in the Five Towns and beyond.
“We are very pleased to have Miki Renee Heino, a celebrated and gifted stylist and personal shopper, on our premises, coaching clients from start to finish. To ensure client satisfaction from beginning to end, Miki will inform clients in advance of the latest styles and designs, as well as place specific items on hold upon request. Miki is peerless in guiding clients to looking their very best.”
Blessed with a flair for fashion, Miki is personable, professional and a pleasure to deal with. With her upbeat personality, she makes every client feel confident and comfortable. Imagine having your own personal shopper and stylist for every occasion. Whether your sense of style is classic elegance or contemporary chic, Miki will guide you through the entire fashion process.
