Designer, Stylist & Tailor
Golnesa & Pari
By Appointment Only
Born in Chicago, and raised in Sacramento and Pacific Grove, Golnesa studied Business Management at CSUMB. She developed her fashion design skill from childhood through a mother-daughter protégé relationship. After a decade of working for a Fortune 500 company and traveling the world, she returned home to help her family business in what has always been her passion… fashion.
Golnesa has a Style with Purpose mentality and assists in curating pristine wardrobes by way of “Closet Cleanse” to empower women. In the last ten years, she has dressed many of Monterey County’s top businesswomen, artists, and entrepreneurs, for charity fundraisers, and award shows. She has orchestrated and participated in fashion shows, Trashion shows, photoshoots, and special events, and the list just continues. She has also built an outstanding relationship mentoring young fashionistas and teaching them design, tailoring, and business skills.
Golnesa merged her mother’s 30-year business, Pari’s Boutique & Alteration in Pacific Grove, with another long-standing store in Carmel, Deja Vu Consignment. During the pandemic, this Mother-Daughter Duo urbanized a high-end consignment boutique with tailoring services in Pacific Grove with a unique Wear-House location and introduced a new way of shopping. They are bringing back the authentic Fashion-House experience.
Pari migrated to the United States from Iran in 1970, she learned sewing from her mother who was a master furrier. She has over 30 years of experience and expertise in tailoring wedding gowns and men’s suits. She worked for Nordstrom’s bridal department, a men’s custom suit boutique, and a small bridal business before starting her own alteration shop in Pacific Grove in 1993.
She is known for making magic with her alteration skills. When she works on an article of clothing you cannot tell it has been altered and many times it looks even better than before. A term she created called “Re-Couture,” which means making an article of clothing that isn’t being used useable by altering it. By adding material, taking it apart, and incorporating it into other garments, her art is priceless. She has Re-Coutured many wedding gowns and furs into items that can be worn again and again.
Together their collaborative, and creative vision makes them an exceptional resource for any age or size. They have an elegant generational style of fashion fused with current flair. Clients appreciate and admire the attention to detail and authenticity when they work with this team.
