The Suzanne Perron Studio is not so much a shop as it is an elegant couture design room just off of Magazine Street. Here Perron puts her extensive talent and experience to work creating custom dresses for discriminating brides. Dresses are cut, draped, lovingly hand-stitched and embellished to suit each individual figure and personal sense of style. These works of art require untold hours to bring about, and up to three fittings to perfect.
Upriver from the French Quarter, in an area locals naturally call “Uptown,” Magazine Street is a six-mile stretch of shops, galleries and restaurants that resemble Soho a decade ago. So named for a magazin or warehouse/store where goods were housed for shipment upriver in the early 19th century, Magazine Street is a unique New Orleans landmark offering antiques, furniture, art, gifts, flowers, vintage and fine clothing, spas, pet boutiques, restaurants, and so much more. Restaurants range from the corner grocery serving po’boys to upscale restaurants offering Creole cuisine. Today, the collection of old warehouses, Victorian homes, shotguns and modern architecture blend to offer foot traffic an eclectic place to shop, every block offering a new experience.
