Firas is just the best.
He is an incredibly talented designer that made wedding dress shopping one of the most fun parts of wedding planning. He makes every bride (or customer) feel as though they are his only customer, is easy to work with, always runs on time, and tells you what he's thinking (which I personally LOVE).
Firas was also incredibly patient with me, and let my entire entourage of a family stop by to see the dress on numerous visits (at least 4 separate times with family / support group in toe). My mother ultimately mailed Firas a small piece of my childhood blanky to be sown into the hem of my wedding dress (I'm not even kidding), and Firas even humored my mother by doing that. Oh, and he has champagne each time you go to visit, which is obviously just fun and generous of him.
I really can't say enough great things about Firas. If you want to find / design your perfect dress, have someone tell you honestly what looks good and what doesn't, and have fun while you're doing it, this is the designer for you.

I had almost given up on my search for the perfect wedding gown until I came across his showroom on Newbury St. Firas really takes the time to understand what you are looking for in a gown, understands a woman's figure and provides a truly customized experience. I felt like a princess at every single one of my fittings! The final design we decided upon was impeccable and I got so many complements on the day of my wedding.
I had the ultimate pleasure of working with Firas Yousif when he designed and created my wedding gown. I was nothing short of pleased and thrilled with the process and with the result. Firas was very professional, knowledgeable of fabrics, styles and was very attentive to what different styles would fit my body type. He listened to what I wanted in my gown but stayed true to his own design aesthetic. Firas' designs are classic, elegant, sophisticated, and simply beautiful. I am delighted and honored to have a Firas Yousif Orignials bridal gown in my closet.
Firas Yousif Originals designs are elegant and one of a kind. He uses fabrics and textiles that are of the highest quality. His bridal couture and evening wear are simply stunning. You can choose designs that he has already made and he will custom fit these pieces to you. OR you can work one on one with Firas to design and have made a completely new look that is unique to your style. Fashion at it's finest. Stunning work.
Had the pleasure to view Firas' beautiful gowns at his runway show during Boston Fashion week. I decided to visit their showroom on Newbury St and I FOUND my perfect dress. Made just for me. Firas and his staff were so helpful and really made me feel like I was his only client. Thanks Firas!
